Rising Strong™ workshop is a research-based program about what it takes for us to get back up, live a more wholehearted and satisfying life by owning our stories. By participating in the Rising Strong™ Workshop you will have the opportunity to explore how to live bravely every day by showing up in the various arenas of your life to become the best, most authentic version of you.
The physics of vulnerability is simple:
If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. When we take risks in our lives, we will inevitably experience disappointments, hurts, failures and heartbreak. Rising Strong is 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.
Throughout the workshop, you be will guided through many positive experiential exercises, personal exploration, watch exclusive videos from Brené Brown created specifically for Rising Strong™ participants, and have opportunities for personal reflections and growth in a safe, supportive, positive and fun environment.
