In no uncertain terms, the 2020s have so far been a sh** show of a start to a new decade. We can’t seem to run away from negativity. Research has shown that the pandemic has caused increased feelings of frustration, worry and anger in a lot of us.

On Thursday the 10th of June, join Sally Leonard and Raatha Ganesh from Resilio Asia and the Genos Spotlight Series in a transformative conversation, where they share their own stories about how mindset and conscious choices play a huge role in how we show up.

What will the session be about?

The past year has taken a significant toll on all of us, making us experience more stress and anxiety than many of us have been used to. Fortunately, there is a productive way to counter the effects. It’s called Thriving. This is ‘the psychological state in which people experience a sense of vitality and learning’. When individuals are thriving, they are growing, developing and energised rather than feeling stagnated or depleted. People who experience a thriving state describe feeling healthier, more resilient and able to focus on their work.

The million-dollar question now is how do we get there, especially when it feels like we’re drowning in a sea of negativity?

In this interactive session, you will have both the opportunity to interact with and ask burning questions around what’s going on for you. You’ll also learn the importance of conscious choices in shaping our mindset and transforming our reality. At the end of the session, you’ll walk away with simple and practical tools and rituals to practice and embed into your life and watch your reality transform.

This session is being held in support of Tree Tops Elephant Reserve, who rescue and retire captive elephants who previously worked exhausting hours in the logging industry, or gave rides and performed in shows for tourist entertainment. They are pioneering ethical elephant tourism in the South of Phuket and offer visitors an Adventure of a Lifetime to learn about, love, and respect elephants through our compassionate and gentle approach.
