Rising Strong for Ambitious Women

A Weekend Intensive for Professional Women & Women in Tech

June 2-3, 2018, San Francisco Financial District


I am thrilled to be offering my first Rising Strong intensive in San Franrising strong brene brown quotecisco this June. This two-day workshop, based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown, is all about learning to recover from setbacks, challenges, failures, and disappointments. We all fall – the important thing is learning how to get back up again.

This is an intimate, experiential workshop (no more than 6 participants) that will challenge and support you to live your most wholehearted life.

Who is this workshop for?

This is a workshop for professional women who want to build resilience to the struggles in their personal lives as well as their careers. Whether you’re trying to make sense of a breakup, dealing with a career setback, struggling to recover from a painful failure, going through a quarter-life crisis, or rumbling with disappointment in your family relationships, the Rising Strong process can help.

No previous experience with Dr. Brown’s work is required to attend – newbies are enthusiastically welcomed!

It should go without saying, but trans women and women of all backgrounds, cultures, sexual orientations, ages, religions and races are welcome here.

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. 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.

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process facilitators explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

Rising Strong™ and Daring Way™ events are offered for the purposes of education, personal growth and development. They are not psychotherapy groups, and are not intended to treat any mental health disorder.
