About the center of Resilience

Why 'Center for Resilience'?

We are often accustomed to comfort and convenience. This keeps you in your comfort zone and makes you dependent on others or external factors. This hinders you from pushing your boundaries and discovering how powerful you truly are. Out of fear of failure or rejection, you often don't even dare to take the first step towards your hearts calling.

There's nothing wrong with you; it's just the way you're 'programmed'. Don't take risks, but play it safe is something we hear regularly. But let us ask you this: what happens to you when your safe haven is taken away, like your relationship, for example? 

At La Forêt du Dragon, we strive to change this mentality. We want to bring you back to a different environment, where everything you know falls away and you discover that you are capable of much more than you think. This not only increases your resilience in difficult situations but also in relationships. Everything you seek is already within yourself. We're here to help you remember. 


Resilience as key for a happy life

If there's one thing certain in life, it's that everything changes constantly. Whether it's at your job, in relationships, or in your surroundings, you cannot control what happens outside of you. Therefore, you have to rely on yourself and stay grounded. When you are centered within yourself, you are way more capable of dealing with the environment.

Increasing your resilience leads to:

  • Being better capable of dealing with stress and feeling less overwhelmed.
  • Adopting a positive mindset; you look at challenges as learning moments instead of obstacles you can't overcome.
  • Improving communication in your relationships, as higher resilience leads to flexibility and understanding.
  • Developing determination and trust in yourself and your capabilities.
  • Finding it easier to deal with traumas and difficult life problems.

Overall, people with a high level of resilience are more positive-minded about themselves, others, and the situations they encounter, which ultimately leads to a happier life.
