Join us for Wow! Cultivating Awe and Wonder to Enhance Wellbeing (Webinar) on Tuesday, April 13 at 1 PM.

Have you ever wondered why individuals are drawn to the curiosities of life? Come explore the psychology behind being in awe and wonder – something philosophers and religious scholars have studied for centuries – in this dynamic program led by licensed mental health counselor Alison Issen. You’ll learn about a number of fascinating discoveries surrounding the nature of awe, its effect on our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing, and even how awe can improve our level of altruism. This workshop will discuss these findings whilexploring ways of opening to and finding awe-some and wonder-full experiences in our everyday lives!

This program is presented by Alison C. Issen and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
