Essential Resilience: Mindfulness and Self-Compassion

Most of us know love, compassion and tolerance are needed in this world. But did you know that compassion for others is rooted in compassion for oneself? It's true. And it's easier than you think! Dr. Heather Krantz and Dr. Ray Gertler lead core practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. I will be assisting them as a teacher-in-training of the Mindfulness and Self-Compassion curriculum, based upon the research of Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Chris Germer.

Join us for this 8-week class, beginning Wednesday, October 17 and continuing every Wednesday until December 12, 2018. Your fee includes a half-day retreat on Saturday, December 01, and excludes Wednesday, November 21 due to Thanksgiving week.

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."--Yoda, Star Wars

Dr. Brené Brown calls it The Physics of Failure: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. Yet, it is in failing that we cultivate true resiliency and the wisdom that allows us to live bravely and lead our lives with courage and compassion.

The Rising Strong™ process is based upon the research of Dr. Brene´ Brown. And Breitenbush Hot Springs is the perfect landscape for the deeply transformative work of re-writing the narrative of our lives with clarity, compassion and renewed purpose. Your fee includes a personal workbook, exclusive videos and the remarkable experience of Breitenbush! Both men and women are welcome, although partners are encouraged to give me a call to discuss in advance.

Be Brave Women's Retreat

‘Be Brave’ invites us to pause and listen for the voice within, calling attention to the unrealized aspects of our lives. A series of small and large group practices re-balances the key arenas where we show up--family, professional, community, personal and spiritual. We will identify obstacles and create an action plan to move your life forward.

'Be Brave' was developed and is delivered with my powerhouse coaching colleagues Kirsten Smith, Lisa Orlick-Salka and Cindi Schoettler. Grounded in the coaching methodology of Frederick Hudson, processes are complimented by yoga, meditation and a tai-chi practice you will love.

'Be Brave' unfolds at Islandwood, on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Nestled amongst ancient cedars and Douglas fir trees, Islandwood is the quintessential Northwest campus providing a quiet space for deep, personal work. Accommodations are very comfy dormitories, and all meals are family style, wholesome, organic and delicious.

Come build community with like-minded women and rediscover your brilliance.

Rising Strong™ Weekend for Men and Women

Rising Strong™ Weekend for Men and Women

What do the women and men who have successfully staggered to their feet after having fallen and found the courage to try again have in common?

Every one of them worked through some form of the Rising Strong™ process. They understand what Dr. Brené Brown calls The Physics of Vulnerability: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. Yet, it is in failing that we cultivate the wisdom that allows us to live bravely and lead our lives with courage and compassion.

Rising Strong™ is the same process whether you’re navigating personal or professional struggles. In fact, it is a spiritual practice. And it's a game-changer.

Please join me and a cohort of men and women as we explore the physics of failure, expand our emotional vocabulary and nurture the creativity and resiliency required to dare greatly and rise strong!

Your cost includes a personal workbook, exclusive videos, small group discussion and a community of like-minded men and women committed to Rising Strong™'!

Limited to 10 participants.
