Dodging Coconuts – Building Resilience in Challenging Times

This is a special introductory “Dodging Coconuts” seminar. Learn how to reach within yourself to find balance in a universe careening out of control. Just as the Wizard of Oz said to Dorothy as she pulled back the curtain and revealed his fraudulent and bumbling attempt to convince others that he was the all-powerful Oz, “You have always had the power to go home.” Going home means understanding that the secret to a good and meaningful life comes from within. All that is required is discovering the key to unlocking your own innate gifts.

Instructor Sylvia Lovely has developed a simple framework consisting of the four P’s for ease of remembrance as you face life’s inevitable challenges. Join us for how to be PREPARED for the world in which we live today; finding PURPOSE as the rock you rely on; PLANNING your days deliberately and mindfully and finally, developing the PERSPECTIVE of wisdom in knowing the importance of our decisions and their impact on you and others.

Students should bring along a notebook and writing utensil for this class.

Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 for Co-op Owners and can be purchased online on Eventbrite or in-store at our Hospitality Desk.

Sylvia Lovely has a passion for helping others find the sweet spot in their lives. She has developed Dodging Coconuts and her four P’s as a template that contemplates that in good times, coconuts nourish, but in high winds, they become flying missiles of destruction. In addition to being an author, speaker and teacher, she is one of four owners of Azur Food Group and a co-host along with Chef Jeremy Ashby and well-known Tony “Twitch” Longo of Z-Rock 103.3 on the Food News and Chews Radio Show airing from 1-2 pm every Saturday on WVLK 590.
