Description

Rising Strong™ is a weekend immersion into discovering your strengths, power and revealing your values to live by, with a “BRAVING” attitude and immense hope for life.

As women we play many roles, we are daughters, sisters, mothers, partners, or professionals. We have all faced hardship, or experienced struggle, we all have a story to share. These stories demonstrate the bravery we displayed in moments of doubt, that allowed us to navigate the valleys of self-doubt, unworthiness, or feelings of failure. These experiences give us strength, courage, and the potential to embrace a “WHOLE HEARTED” you.

Let’s not fear our guilt, embarrassment or shame instead let Rising Strong liberate and empower your perspective to become your best compassionate self.

From the Science of Self-compassion we will learn about the cost of self-judgement, to practice and live by our values, gain an understanding of worthiness and share a communal journey. Let us embed ourselves into the gentleness and the peace in our lives by choosing the path to self-kindness.

This is a workshop to rise from the fall, to author your life-story, to learn to break the cycle of fear, self- doubt or regrets. Acknowledging the courage to be vulnerable, transforming the way you live and empowering you towards change, RISING STRONG.

We will journey together through the process:

  • The Reckoning
  • The Rumble
  • The Revolution

Own your life story through the exploration of curiousness and the depths of your emotions. Here come into contact with your deepest self, as we travel in a compassionate way through our two-day workshop in diverse art activities, dance-movement, mindfulness self-compassion and guided self-reflection exercises. We will journal our experiences and embrace our spirits to ignite the fire that will set our paths forwards by writing our daring endings.


The Rising Strong workshop is also based on the belief of interconnectedness, spirituality, and whole heartiness. It will allow us to find and create a sense of meaning and life purpose. Cultivating: authenticity, self-compassion, a resilient spirit, gratitude and filling our live with joy. Listening closely to our intuition we will develop a sense of self -trust and trust for others.

This Interactive Workshop includes:

  • The Rising Strong Workbook
  • Mindfulness self-Compassion scripts
  • Videos
  • Art therapy exercises
  • Psycho-education
  • Self-reflection journal
