Event description

Description

Do you want to build courage and resilience, improve your relationshipsand live wholeheartedly – with gratitude, joy, and authenticity,at home, at work, and in your community?

Join other women in a weekend immersion workshop where we will learn about the physics of vulnerability and the power of story-telling to show up, be brave and be seen.

This is a workshop to rise from the fall, to re-author your life story, to learn to break the cycle of fear, self-doubt or inauthenticity.

Step into a program that will liberate and empower your perspective to become your best, compassionate self. Develop strategies to cultivate authenticity, self-trust and creativity and find a sense of meaning and life purpose.

Step outside of your comfort zone, face life’s challenges with a new sense of purpose. You will find your inner strength, discover your core values, and uncover your unique story by exploring and practicing the principles of Self-Compassion and Rising Strong™. Underpinning the workshop is a belief in the importance of interconnectedness, spirituality, and whole heartedness.



The facilitators, Psychologists Sue Hymus and Faye Evans will bring together a powerful mix of learnings and exercises from the research of Dr Brené Brown, and Dr Kristin Neff. Sue is a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CTDWF) which includes training in both The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ programs. Faye has trained as a mindfulness Self-Compassion teacher.

Creating new stories allows us to find and create a new sense of meaning and life purpose. Learning to be strong, yet vulnerable, transforms the way we live and empowers us to towards outward change, RISING STRONG.

We will travel in a compassionate way through our two-day workshop using principles of brain science. Recent research has shown how incorporating diverse art activities, dance-movement, mindfulness self-compassion and guided self-reflection exercises can help us recover from past hurts and embed new learnings for long lasting change.

We will journey together and work through the process:

  • The Reckoning
  • The Rumble
  • The Revolution

We will journal our experiences and embrace our spirits to ignite the fire that will set our paths forward by writing our daring endings.

ABOUT RISING STRONG™

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.

Here’s how Brené describes the progression of her work: The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you. Daring Greatly – Be all in. Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again
