About the Seminar Series
In these times of unprecedented change, our gifted minds can latch onto the expectations and fears we harbor, instead of creatively working to help us adapt. We may find ourselves in a disempowering cycle of overthinking, then reacting to what we think, risking paralysis and a lack of hope.
This InterGifted webinar series led by Marion Kee will outline a functional approach to gifted resilience–the practice of conscious, persistent and healthy behaviors in key areas:
- Material well-being (bodily health, livelihood)
- Emotional/Intellectual well-being (beliefs, attitudes, mindfulness)
- Communication and relationships (self, family, friends, community)
- Informational well-being (authenticity, meaning, creative practice–spirituality, if you like)
- Integration with the larger web (sustainable living, ethics, responsibility towards the whole)
Resilient living as a practice allows us to approach profound change by putting one foot in front of the other, focusing on the now while creating healthier lives. Gifted resilience allows us to be flexible and adaptable in meeting the challenges and opportunities of our times, using our gifts to help make a better world.
The first session will introduce a basic practice of physical, attitudinal and mind-focusing exercise that will continue throughout the series, to help participants build a practice of being in the world that can be tailored to each individual as they discover what works best for them. The above key areas (material, emotional, intellectual well-being; communication and relationships, etc), will be covered in each session: in the first session (July 25) they will be primarily approached from the individual angle; in the second session (August 8) from the angle of the individual in relationship with others, and in the third session (August 22) from the view of the larger picture of a gifted life on the planet at this time of tremendous change. Each webinar will include slides, pointers and resources for further learning, as well as ample time for Q+A to address your individual questions. Participants can sign up for one, two or all three sessions.
