Join us for The Daring Way™,
You followed all the rules during quarantine. You survived; maybe you even thrived. You experienced deep loss and received unimaginable gifts.Now what? Take time for you. Give yourself permission to maintain every supportive practice you wish to keep. Give yourself permission to play, to practice radical self-care, to deepen your relationship with your precious self, to “show up, be seen, live brave™” in ways you never dreamed before the pandemic.

Explore what it means to live a wholehearted life post pandemic and make choices that move you toward a more authentic expression of your true self. Give yourself permission to:

  • Be vulnerable and ask for what you need.
  • Hold boundaries beyond quarantine – say NO without excuses, say YES from your heart.
  • Reclaim your worthiness.
  • Understand shame and perfectionism.
  • Cultivate authenticity and give up people pleasing.
  • Practice empathy, self-compassion, gratitude, and self-kindness.
  • Embrace play as an integral part of self-care.
  • Let go of the need for certainty.
  • Explore core values, trust, self-expectations, longing, and more…

This year our retreat will begin on Friday evening with music and will conclude after breakfast on Sunday.  Feel free to book additional nights for relaxation and renewal. We are hoping that you will join us and also bring a friend.  We’re looking forward to seeing many new and old friends.
