Rising Strong Workshop VIC

Rising Strong Workhsop

led by Maggie O'Shea and Kate McKillop

Learn what it takes to get back up !

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Based on the work of Brené Brown, Ph.D. LMSW, Rising Strong is a two-day workshop 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. 

In this experiential workshop, you will examine the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that are potentially holding you back and identify the new choices and practices that will help you move towards more authentic, wholehearted living. 

This workshop will begin with a group yoga practice each morning and guided meditations will feature throughout the program, to build on our capacity to being more present in our lives.
