    All of us are faced with difficulties and challenges that can test our resilience and impede or ability to live a happy and fulfilling life. Reaching one’s greatest potential requires gathering motivation and resilience tools that you can use to navigate healthfully through trying times. You will explore theories and practices that energize you, help you say “YES” to what is important and “NO” to the things that drain you. You will distinguish between self-care and selfishness, and learn how to set and attain your own goals, how to use your strengths more creatively, build your emotional intelligence, and rebalance your life when it goes off kilter. Making long lasting, intentional change in life requires applying strong and personalized evidence-based tools. These become immediately useful in habit formation. Ample time for discussion will be provided.

    Defining Hope – An inspiring documentary and conversation-starter

    It’s not easy to find places in our busy, modern lives to talk about the realities of living with serious illness – or caring for someone with chronic or serious illness. Many of us don’t explore these topics until we’re right in the thick of it – which is often a hard time to start conversations or have time to reflect about what matters most to us.
    Come join us for a documentary and conversation in Arlington, VA on March 15th – a unique opportunity to listen, reflect, and share with each other. Defining Hope is a beautiful documentary that weaves stories of (8) people living with life-threatening illness (and their families) -- and the nurses who guide them as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for, and how that hope evolves. (For more information and to view the trailer: http://hope.film/)
    This conversation is about how we care for each other – how we talk about difficult parts of being human – and what 'quality of life' really means for each of us.
    The short discussion after the film will be led by two nurse coaches – Dr. Eileen O’Grady and Janet Booth – who are both committed to the possibilities for healing and wellbeing within health care.

    When:
    Thursday March 15, 2018; 7:30-9:30 pm
    Where:
    Regal Ballston Movie Theatre   671 N. Glebe, Rd., Arlington, VA, 22203
