Navigating Difficult Times from a Place of Strength
with guest speaker Ruth Pearce

T O   B E   H E L D   O N L I N E

When times are tough, do you want to put your best foot forward, apply the best aspects of yourself in a mindful way?

VIA Character Strengths are the backbone of Positive Psychology. They are empowering, evidence-based, and widely applicable.

Mindfulness helps us to clearly connect with those strengths and to consider our circumstances and decisions in a more objective, rational way while not ignoring our emotions.

The last few weeks and months have been stressful for everyone in some way or other. Many people are feeling depleted. They have self-regulation and planning fatigue. So how do we keep going in these difficult and uncertain times? How do we make good decisions?

In this session learn about your character strengths, and how they can empower you to be your best even when circumstances are their worst. Layer in small mindfulness practices to really build resources to help you through the difficult times and to enjoy the good times.


  • Know the key positive elements of your positive personality – VIA Character Strengths.
  • Take away mindfulness practices that you can use wherever you are, whoever you are with and whenever you want or need them to create balance and increase calm.
  • Develop your strengths and start spotting the strengths of others to help everyone move toward their best self even when times are difficult.

PREPARATION To get the most out of the session, please take your FREE VIA Character Strengths assessment. It will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete in your native language, and at the end you will have access to your ranked 24 strengths.

GIVEAWAY Ruth will be giving away free VIA Total 24 Character Strengths Reports ($49 value) to three lucky attendees!
