Enhancing Resilience by Cultivating a Contemplative Lifestyle


Resilience is fundamental to health and well-being, especially in this unprecedented time. Stanford longitudinal population studies have identified that people whose lifestyles include contemplative practices are currently experiencing greater resilience, as well as better physical and emotional health, including less anxiety, distress and depression. This class will help cultivate your resilience-building contemplative lifestyle to promote your resilience. Enjoy being in community with fellow participants to effectively engage with the events of this historic time.

Resilience facilitates adaptation in the face of uncertainty and change, as well as the ability to learn from both, which in turn deepens discernment, wisdom and compassion for all. Contemplative practices include mindfulness, self-compassion, breathing, reflection, gratitude journaling, and membership in something larger than your individual life.

This 2-session online engagement workshop, in conjunction with the numerous contemplation-related opportunities offered in Stanford’s 2020 Contemplation by Design (CBD) Summit, September 30 – October 6, will equip you with a personal resilience-building contemplative lifestyle plan.

Separate registration in 4 of the free Summit sessions is a required part of this engagement class. Register for your choice of Summit sessions at https://contemplation.stanford.edu/summit.

Instructor: Tia Rich, PhD, is the founder and director of Contemplation by Design. She has been integrating contemplative practice into resilience, stress management, and career training programs and academic classes at Stanford University and Medical Center since 1984.
