Join us as we come together as women to appreciate the beauty of our imperfections and discover how our vulnerabilities are a powerful source of courage, compassion, and connection. Based on Dr. Brené Brown’s popular The Daring Way™ method, this weekend intensive will examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back—such as shame and unworthiness—and identify new choices and practices to help us move toward more authentic and wholehearted living. Through dialogue, sharing, and contemplative exercises, we will cultivate daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
