Finding Awe: Building Personal Resilience and Inspiring Others

When: June 9, 2022, 3:30 pm - Thursday

Where: Swang 102

Session 5

Session Abstract

During this interactive workshop the science of awe will be shared through hands-on practices, videos, reflections, and more. You’ll gain insight into the vast research on awe including the presenter’s studies and programs conducted with diverse groups including police homicide investigators, hostage negotiators, and many other professionals across the world. The connection between awe and resilience is well established. Importantly, experiencing awe is not limited to once-in-a-lifetime moments – we can experience awe in everyday moments if we are open to them. Let your curiosity bring you to this session and leave feeling invigorated, and then importantly as a leader (which we all are), share it after with others.
