Coping with Uncertainty — The Daring Way™

Please note: This is a heart-centered retreat for women only. Our retreat/workshop venue is historic Wiawaka Center for Women on beautiful Lake George, in the Adirondack Park of Upstate New York. Photos above are from our 2021 retreat.

We are reminded, once again, that life is unpredictable, uncertain, and messy. Because we are kind, loving beings, it is excruciating to witness all the pain in the world and it’s especially difficult to accept the changes in our own lives. Though we can’t control most of what happens in life, we do have a choice about how we respond to it. We can address exhaustion and compassion fatigue. It’s essential that we care for our physical, mental, and emotional selves and reclaim our joyful, loving spirits, because truly all healing begins with self-healing.

When we work with change, instead of against it, we begin to cultivate an inner calm that allows us to feel grateful, connect with others, and find purpose in the mess.

Together we will explore the preciousness of you:

  • Vulnerability as the gateway to living a brave life.
  • Cultivating intuition and trusting faith.
  • Play and creativity as an integral part of self-care.
  • Identifying and practicing core values.
  • Restoring self-trust.
  • Creating healthy boundaries.
  • Practicing gratitude and self-compassion as your super powers.

Cate* gently guides participants through creative exercises and inner exploration of The Daring Way™ curriculum and videos, based on Dr. Brené Brown’s bestselling books and offered exclusively by trained facilitators.
