Wednesday, April 5th | 6:30pm-8:00pm | Optimism 101

In this class, learn to give yourself permission to put away the rose-colored glasses and rethink your understanding of optimism. When your mindset shifts from ‘the glass is half-full’ (or half-empty) to ‘the glass is refillable,’ your capacity for happiness and joy will grow. We’ll discuss the practices of Learned Optimism and Realistic Optimism, with specific attention to building resilience. You’ll leave the class with strategies that can be immediately applied to enhance your personal and professional wellbeing.

The recommended age for this class is 18+.

This class will take place indoors at Rochester Brainery, located at 176 Anderson Ave F109, Rochester, NY 14607.

Live subtitles will be available upon request during this class. If you would like to request a sign language interpreter or will be attending class with an aide, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
