July 2021 - Online Events 

Event: FREE Webinar - Build Resilience and Thrive

Date & Time: Tuesday, 27 July - 5:00pm to 5:45pm

Inner Space is a meditation and personal development centre.  Join them for a free live online 45 minute session to see how we can build up our resilience and thrive under pressure and challenges.

About this event:

Why is it that some people cope with difficulties so well while others don’t? As the saying goes: It’s not what happens, it’s how you handle it that matters. And the thing that makes all the difference is, resilience.

Resilience is your personal toolkit that helps you to thrive in uncertainty and the ever changing world.

This session explores how to:

  • not let adversity or setbacks overwhelm you
  • build your energy and resilience
  • thrive under pressure and challenges
