Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience: Wisdom for Empowerment (MITSBAA Resilience Series)
Join us for an immersive experience including a conscious leadership exercise and mind-body practices to delve into the transformative power of going beyond resilience to the pursuit of a clear vision for balance, well-being and success.

Rimi Chakraborty, MIT Sloan MBA 2010, and Samantha Anderson, co-authors of the recently released, Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience, will share their journeys to redefine success for themselves and will offer invaluable insights for your empowerment through a lens that transcends resilience. Attendees will embark on an immersive experience designed to help clarify your vision and chart a course toward your dreams with unwavering clarity and purpose.

During this program, attendees will be guided in an important vision or intention you’d like to bring to life. It could be a vision for what kind of leader you want to be, manifesting your ideal career, a balanced work and family life, an ideal home, a vision for how you see yourself in three to five years, or any vision you’d like to bring to life this year. 

Whether you're seeking inspiration, guidance, or simply a supportive community of like-minded individuals, this event promises to be an evening of insights and engagement that will leave you feeling inspired, full of embodied wisdom, and ready to embrace your journey with renewed passion and determination.
