In a post-pandemic world full of change, stress, and adversity, we need healthy ways to strengthen our spiritual cores and social connections. We need an opportunity to realign and learn how to cultivate God’s best for our lives by increasing psychological and physical immune systems as we adapt to grow back better. This session incorporates principles from Biblical Christian Formation, Christian Positive Psychology, the Science of Well-being, Integrative Mental Health, and Lifestyle Medicine. These strategies will give you a clear map to guide you and your clients as life coaches, counselors, healthcare workers, or retreat leaders.
