“The greater the force of your compassion, the greater your resilience in confronting hardships.” – the Dalai Lama

“Resilience is based on compassion for ourselves as well as compassion for others.” – Sharon Salzberg

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius

TEDxUCLA invites you to participate in this year’s annual salon on RESILIENCE.

The core of happiness is gratitude, the quality of being thankful in the present moment. This year we explore the concept of gratitude a step further with the topic of resilience, the ability to bounce back. Regardless of age, gender or financial background, we all experience levels of stress and disappointment on a regular basis. Our goal as individuals and as a nation is to cultivate resilience and find ways of coping that lift stressful circumstances towards a more positive outcome.
