Brené Brown’s The Daring Way™

Rising Strong Retreat

Facilitated by Heather Kramer Almquist, MA, LPC, CDWF  

Spring is a peaceful, precious time of rebirth and renewal. We are awakened from Winter’s deep, rejuvenating sleep, pushing through the cool, softening soil to begin anew. During this season we are called to ponder what will come next? In what ways will my life be different? In what ways will I be different? Will I be rebirthed onto a new path or renewed in my existing journey? Who and what will come and go? Am I ready for a new chapter.. am I ready to flourish? We invite you to explore the next steps of your journey, challenging and empowering you to stand strong and remain curious about the most difficult aspects of your life. 
Why? Because the story never ends there. What exists past the suffering? What comes next after the grief? What happens after we fall? This group is for those of us who feel called to break loose and move beyond patterns of pain, shame and denial that plague us to manifest our full potential. Our past traumas, failures and mistakes are powerful tools to help propel us forward – let’s make them feel that way. This process can be done in one-on-one therapy, but is exalted, imparting even deeper impact, when done in a group. Our hope is that during this Spring season, you will take these new steps with us. 

Here is what we shall do together… 

We invite you to join us in gathering as a small group of like-minded, trustworthy, and accepting folks for a weekend retreat. Over the course of three days, we will explore and reckon with our stories, rumble with and challenge ourselves and our perceptions, and empower ourselves to revolutionize what happens next. We will do some expressive arts together. We will share meals together. We will make meaningful connections with others and especially with our own selves and our own stories. We will learn to write and live new endings by daring to go deep enough to examine and own them.

We are excited to meet you and share this sacred season.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 610-385-3155.

(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.)
