It's been said that holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Study after study shows that one of the keys to longevity and good health is developing a habit of forgiveness and letting go of past hurts. It's hard work, but it's the kindest thing you can do for yourself -- and for others. Nobel Peace Prize-winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the global icon of forgiveness, partnered with his daughter, the Reverend Mpho Tutu, to write a manual on the art of forgiveness, The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World. Now Mpho Tutu comes to New York to give you the instructions on how to forgive, as well as scientific and moral reasons for doing so. She'll explain the universal four-step process of forgiveness that everyone can apply to their life, no matter how large or small the hurt. She'll affirm that healing does not lie in anger, it lies in empathy and love, knowing that by pardoning others we ultimately heal ourselves physically, emotionally and mentally. Learn More

At this 5-hour workshop, students will learn to use stress to their advantage and:
-Maintain balance in the face of stress
-Find your flow and achieve resilience
-Shift into a positive mind and body physiological state
-Work with honesty and integrity
-Inspire at work and at home
You will learn how to change the body’s physiology quickly and lastingly through the deliberate evocation of a series of biochemical reactions in the body that lower blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and adrenaline levels, and counteract the unhealthy effects of fear and stress in the moment and over time.
