CANCELLED: Solving Stress: The power to stay cool and calm amidst chaos—Satyaki (Kraig) Brockschmidt

Thursday, December 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST

This webinar is canceled due to scheduling conflict. We’ll offer in 2018 but a new date is TBD.


Stress is easily one of the greatest challenges of the usual holiday season, as the number of potential stressors quickly multiplies as demands increase and time becomes compressed. The secret to solving stress, however, is not merely trying to manage stress at some tolerable level. Neither is it to avoid those stressors nor to somehow train yourself to never react to stressors. It is instead to retrain the nature of your reactions so that instead of responding with tension (and any number of other things that result ins tress), you respond with calmness and relaxation. Learning to do this involves simple, enjoyable, and wholly free tools that thousands of people have used to reduce present stress, reverse the harmful effects of past stress, and prevent most future stress.


Satyaki (Kraig) Brockschmidt is an author, Microsoft engineer, public speaker, meditation and yoga instructor, and Chairman of the Ananda University. Between his two tenures at Microsoft he spent twelve years volunteering, traveling, and serving in over one hundred distinct roles and professions, including forestry, cooking, construction, ministry, mechanics, singing, and appearing in the movie Finding Happiness, and on National Public Radio.

Such diverse experiences along with his meditation helped Satyaki develop deep empathy as well as the ability to see unique solutions to divisive questions. He is known as a synthesizer, able to distill a simple, coherent, and unifying story from many disparate details, as expressed through his Microsoft work, his various books, and papers and essays available on kraigbrockschmidt.com.
