Virtual Winter Mindset Workshop
Nov 03, 2021
6:00pm - 7:30pm PST

What can Norway teach us about how to not just survive the winter, but to thrive during winter? The Wintertime Mindset Workshop is an interactive, research-based workshop developed and delivered by Stanford health psychologist Kari Leibowitz to help individuals and organizations cultivate the Norwegian mindset for loving winter. In the workshop, participants will learn about how mindsets play a powerful role in health and wellbeing, even though we might not always be aware of their effects.

To translate these insights into action, participants will be guided through a series of interactive exercises to help them cultivate a more positive wintertime mindset, combined with specific suggestions to support wellbeing in any season.

This workshop combines Norwegian cultural practices with evidence-based, psychological insights for wellbeing. Shedding light on how a small shift in mindset can make a big difference, Kari provides concrete strategies for learning to see winter as a time of joy and opportunity, and how to turn any time of challenge and struggle into opportunities to flourish.

 

Cost: $10 for Members; $15 general admission (After October 15 $15 for Members; $20 general admission)

About the lecturer:

As a Fulbright Scholar at the northernmost university in the world, the University of Tromsø, Kari Leibowitz experienced firsthand the Polar Night – the time each year in Tromsø where the sun sets on November 21 and doesn’t rise again until January 21. Her research investigates how people in Tromsø adapt to the winter to thrive during the long, cold darkness. 

Kari’s research on wintertime mindset has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Guardian, CNN, and NPR, and devoured by millions of readers in the United States, Canada, Norway, the U.K., Sweden, Ireland, and Germany. Kari has appeared on dozens of radio interviews, podcasts, television shows, and print articles, and the Wintertime Mindset Workshop was created to meet the growing demand for strategies to flourish not just in winter, but in all seasons of life.
