Brene Brown's The Daring Way™ Retreat and Workshop
Sunday 29th April - Friday 4th May 2018
Wilsons Promontory, Victoria
Set in the stunningly beautiful Wilson's Promontory, the Daring Way training explores the universal need for love, connection and belonging, as
well as the fear and shame that can get in the way. In Brown's language, we learn "how to show up, be seen, and dare to risk vulnerability,"
in order to live braver, more authentic and joyful lives. The focus is on developing shame resilience, and practicing the "gifts" that support
wholehearted living - gratitude, joy, self-compassion, creativity, play, rest, authenticity, calm, meaning and laughter.
In addition to the workshop sessions, there will be lots of time for all the things you might expect on a regular retreat - guided meditation, relaxation movement, long bush and beach walks, journalling, some periods of silence, and just resting and enjoying nature.

In Maggie's own life as a partner, mother of three teenage daughters, therapist and mindfulness practitioner, this work strikes a deep chord especially
in helping to understand and work more constructively with the fears that can keep us playing life safe, but small. As much as I loved her
books and talks, however, I agree with Brene that like mindfulness, it is only when the theory becomes integrated into practice and our daily
lives in practical ways, that it has the power to transform. This is what motivated my decision to become a Certified Daring Way™ facilitator
and to share the work with others, using practices from Mindfulness, Compassion and Positive Neuroplasticity to further complement and consolidate
this ground-breaking research.
