What do you think of when you hear the word resilience? Many people associate the word with strength, adaptability, or a toughness that can overcome the fiercest of challenges and unexpected change.
In this episode we’re talking with James O’Dea, former President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, former Washington office director of Amnesty International and former executive director of the Seva Foundation.
James joins our Podcast host, Deborah Rozman to discuss why resilience is so key to both our personal growth and to humanity’s collective healing. They talk about the qualities of resilience we all need today in the face of growing personal, social, and global stress and uncertainty.
James has witnessed the terror of war, massacre, civil upheaval and coup d’état. He has also witnessed the personification of resilience in people with a tremendous courage to uphold their heart values regardless of their circumstances.
James explains in this episode why resilience isn’t just the ability to bounce back after a toxic disrupter or a stressful time – that resilience is an energy we build in our system through honoring and living heart values, such as care, compassion, kindness and generosity.
This episode closes with a Heart Meditation to build resilience in our life and to co-create a reservoir of regenerative heart energy that we can access anytime to reduce stress and increase our capacity to remain resilient.
