Unleash the Superhero Within!

“If we lose the ability to imagine ourselves as heroes, and to understand the meaning of true heroism, our society will be poorer for it. If we can reconnect with these ancient ideals, and make them fresh again, we can create a connection with the hero in ourselves” – Zeno Franco and Philip Zimbardo

Join Kevin Byer and Michael Eisen for 'Unleash the Superhero Within': a workshop about embracing our role and place as real life superheroes! 

Everyone has their own journey and story that is constantly being written with the decisions we are faced with, the struggles we endure, the sacrifices we make, and the dreams we pursue. We learn about ourselves through observing others, and heroes allow us to dream big! They ignite the imagination, give us a positive vision of what we could be, and through the stories they tell, can awaken and inspire heroic qualities in ourselves.

In this workshop you will:

-Create your own superhero identity that is based on your strengths, your values and your unique capabilities to affect positive change. 

-Learn ways to cultivate superhero characteristics through practices from the fields of positive psychology, mindfulness and emotional intelligence. This week's workshop will focus on resilience, compassion and support (support network and self support). 

-Practice experiential and reflective exercises in: gratitude, personal value clarification/goal setting, and a group compassion meditation.  

This day pays tribute to the lessons we can learn and apply in our lives from superheroes and honours and connects us with the potential for heroism in each and every one of us. It is designed to be inspiring, empowering, and fun, with opportunities for self-reflection, growth, connecting to our child side, and discussions on personal development. 

Come on out and have your cape ready! Seriously, let's dress up like superheroes, because why not? We encourage you to bring any wigs or props or whatever you might have to fully embrace your superhero persona, a superhero dance party may break out!
