Introducing The 2021 Sedona Wolf Week Satellite Series #GoingGlobal

Satellite Series #1: "Take Action NOW for Wolves"

This event has passed. You can view the recordings on our YouTube channel. Please click on the "play" arrow next to each session to view.

With the decimation of wolves in our country at an all-time high, many people across the country are feeling angry, devastated, and hopeless. Many feel their voices are not being heard. The SWW Satellite Series was created in an effort to educate and empower people more immediately throughout the year as new actions are taken against wolves, as well as solidify a supportive community of like-minded people who care about our country's wolves and are willing to fight for them.

For those of you who were unable to attend the event or all of the sessions, they are available for viewing on our YouTube channel.

The Secrets of Personal Resilience

  • Patty Brandmaier,
    Advisor for Individuals and Team Leaders

Patty Brandmaier’s work with developing greater personal resilience started with her own; during her 32-year career at the Central Intelligence Agency, she was at the core of some of the world’s most complex challenges, serving overseas in high threat environments and as part of the CIA’s executive leadership team.  Patty will share with you the four foundational elements of personal resilience, developed in practice and grounded in science, along with tools for cultivating resilience within yourself, because resilience can definitely be self-learned.
