I am thrilled to be offering my first Rising Strong intensive in San Francisco 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.


Date: June 2-3, 2018

Location: San Francisco Financial District, 3-5 minute walk from Montgomery BART

Price: $600 (Early-bird pricing)

$650 (After May 1)

Includes the two-day intensive workshop, materials, and breakfast and snacks each day. Payment plans are available, please inquire.

If you are interested, please message me for details.  In order to ensure this workshop will meet your goals for personal growth, I will offer a 30 minute consultation via video or in-person for all participants free of charge.

Please let me know at least 2 weeks before the workshop if you have any accessibility needs or dietary restrictions.


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™ method is based on the research of Brené Brown, Ph.D. LMSW. Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past fifteen years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of three #1 New York Times Bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and Rising Strong.

Her TED talk – The Power of Vulnerability – is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 25 million viewers.

Brené lives in Houston, Texas with her husband, Steve, and their children Ellen and Charlie. Further information is available at www.brenebrown.com.

Rising StrongSF Two-Day Intensive is led by Dr. Maya Borgueta, Certified Daring Way Facilitator Candidate.  This workshop is offered for the purposes of education, personal growth and development. It is not a psychotherapy group, and is not intended to treat any mental health disorder.
