The Resilience Training

Overcoming difficult times, managing daily challenges with calm and confidence to succeed and be happy. 

Resilience is the ability to overcome the shocks of life and to rebound after difficulties, to make the best of given situations. The Resilience Training naturally develops innate abilities often buried under the fatigue and turbulence of life.


This approach is different from usual trainings. It does not consist in learning or practicing “tricks”, recipes or quickly forgotten methods in a small group. It is not about psychological analysis or group sharing of your strengths and weaknesses, nor self-suggestion. This is a mainly practical training allowing for a genuine psycho-physiological transformation which changes your outlook, gives you strength and stability and allows all your good qualities to spontaneously emerge.

You will learn the Transcendental Meditation (TM ) technique, which you will then be able to enjoy very day of your life. This simple and natural technique is practiced sitting comfortably eyes closed, a moment morning and afternoon. It provides deep rest which dissolves fatigue, stress and accumulated impressions to dissolve. The agitated mind settles down and opens to inner silence, the source of all energy, intelligence and creativity. One comes out deeply regenerated, more clear, strong and confident, more aware and better organized.

This technique is a powerful antidote to toxic stress, burnout and post-traumatic stress. It can be compared to the art of archery: pulling the arrow on the bow, charging it with potential energy to then reach heart of the target. One functions on the basis of full confidence and professional performance improves as well as relationships.

Results come quickly. 50 years of scientific publications show that this practice develops a fuller brain functioning, better relationships, more stability and confidence, better moral reasoning. It reduces stress and anxiety and strengthens the immune system
