    Now more than ever, we are having to deal with constant change and challenges. Why can some people adapt to change more easily than others? Is resilience something you're born with, or something you can learn? In this 2.5 hour workshop, led by Sue Nicholls, Rookhow Development Manager & author of 'Let's Talk: Resilience', we'll be exploring how we can change the way we react to situations & find strength to bounce back.

    Join with other Rookhow supporters and friends for a quiet half day retreat facilitated by Development Manager Sue Nicholls. Bring a poem or reading about inner stillness to share. We will look at how to achieve inner stillness to help give us strength and guide us through turbulent times. There will be some periods of gathered silence. Rookhow is a Quaker charity but all are welcome to attend.
