Growing Grit!

  • Columbia Gorge Community College, HR Campus (map)

Aspire toward heartfelt aspirations with Ellen Donoghue, PhD!  Check out this class...

Courage, determination, confidence, resilience, and patience are all qualities of grit. These are some of the inner-strengths essential for sticking with a task and working toward an aspiration. This class is for anyone who aspires to fulfill a heartfelt wholesome goal or deeply held longing – whatever it may be! Learn simple mindfulness practices to cultivate inner-strengths important to you. Overcome fears that often hold us back from living life fully. Explore how to aspire toward goals without sensations like “This better happen or else!” or “clinging and attaching” to outcomes. Reframe unconstructive “I should…” self-talk into supportive inner-guidance. Whether you desire to compete in an extreme sport, learn to play the ukulele, start a new business, or live life more fully, the presentations, discussions, and guided practices of this class will enable you to grow your grit!

Wednesday evenings, November 14th – Dec 12th,  6-7:30pm, Hood River Campus. $79. Registration required.
