Upcoming Retreat Weekends!

Living Courageously:  A Brave Path to Rising Strong (The Daring Way™)

  • Living Courageously:  A Brave Path to Rising Strong (The Daring Way™)

  • Rising Strong (The Daring Way™) Weekend Intensive with Andrea St. George, Emotional Intelligence Coach & Jessica Foley, MA, LMHC, LPCC

What's a Living Courageously Weekend Retreat anyway, Jess?      

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. During this amazing weekend, we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us 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.

We've brought this amazing weekend to a retreat-style setting in order to more fully immerse participants in the work.  We find that leaving your normal environment and allowing yourself to connect fully with nature, peace, and each other serves to enhance our Daring Way™ work.
