“If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall; this is the physics of vulnerability.” Brené Brown, Rising Strong
We had a Rising Strong™ weekend planned for April 2020–it was cancelled. Just like everything was cancelled. The whole world stopped for months, then it opened a little and closed down again. Rinse and repeat. It was hard.
It will be helpful to take a hot minute to explore the effects of this on our spirits. As humans, we all grieved, were stressed, felt the anxiety–but each in very different ways. Exploring our experiences may help us make sense of them.
The entire planet is recovering from the fall that was COVID-19. Even as restrictions loosen, new variants threaten and we learn to live with this virus, we also are working to rise from our individual experiences during the 2 years of severe restrictions and ongoing uncertainty. Rising Strong™ weekend is your opportunity to process, grieve, and make meaning of the pandemic. This weekend isn’t exclusive to pandemic recovery–you are welcome to attend as you seek to rise strong from another life crash.
Rising Strong™ is a course developed out of the research of Dr. Brené Brown. Through a series of videos of Brené Brown, individual experiences, and discussion in a small group, with the facilitation of a certified facilitator, Carolyn Klassen, the material is processed, worked through, and experienced.
Rising Strong™ works through:
The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.™
This course may be helpful to deal with a fall in your life, recently or in the past, as you seek to become the author of your story. This course is not designed to replace therapy or complete the journey of an experience. Rather, it is designed to move you forward in your life by reckoning and rumbling to move towards a revolution in yourself and in your world. It builds on material in The Daring Way™, but attendance at The Daring Way™ is not a prerequisite to attending Rising Strong™
