Join Dr. Shilagh Mirgain a UW Health Sport and Health Psychologist recently featured on the TODAY show in this experiential workshop. As we are surrounded by stress and the pressure to succeed, it can be easy to start simply surviving and disconnecting from your passions and purpose.  Drawing from mindfulness and mind-body medicine, this experiential workshop will teach you skills and simple practices to cultivate greater well-being and happiness. You'll gain insight into how to nurture yourself, build greater confidence, and stay resilient so you can truly thrive in your life.
