Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Using your strengths! Join Erin Rachel Doppelt, MA and learn about cultivating sustainable positive feelings and increasing empathy and happiness while decreasing stress in your life and in the workplace. An interactive workshop starting with active meditation and mindfulness practices that will support those who have or work around people with seasonal depression, anxiety and fear of failure. In this panel/workshop you will connect to your character strengths and how our thoughts determines our actions and consequences. You will also identify the four different categories of active constructive responding and how to exemplify active listening. Our time together will focus on small, yet drastic, shifts in the everyday lifestyle that lead to a more meaningful life. We will meditate as well!
