A Weekend Intensive Workshop for Women
ABOUT RISING STRONG™
The Rising Strong™ Program is the critically important follow-up to The Daring Way™, a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. When we step into the arena and dare greatly in the world, we are going to fall and have “face-down” moments. It’s crucial to develop shame resiliency by learning the process of how to get back up and keep going forward in alignment with your values that give you strength and purpose.
During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
This workshop is based on becoming aware of our stories that we make up about events that sometimes keep us down and stuck in life and relationships, getting curious about the stories and owning them, rumbling with the emotions triggered, and rewriting our stories by integrating key learnings during the rumbling process. By being the author, rather than just a character in our stories, we get to write new endings that allow us to bounce back from perceived failures and continue to live authentically and wholeheartedly with confidence and determination.
This group is for you if you…
- tend to be self-critical
- describe yourself as a “perfectionist”
- feel like you never measure up or aren’t good enough
- need to develop emotional resiliency
- avoid taking risks in life, especially after a setback
- give up easily on yourself or pursuits
- want to develop the strength to confront difficult emotions
- want to establish healthier relationships with yourself and others through interpersonal boundaries
- would like to develop self-compassion as a practice, especially in difficult times
- need to clarify your values and align your behavior to those values to maintain motivation and a sense of purpose when you get stuck
- want to build the courage to continue to show up and be seen in life for who you are
- desire a more authentic and whole-hearted life in which you go after your dreams, rather than let fear or perceived failures shut you down.

Meet Your Workshop Leader
Rebecca Seamon, M.Ed. LPC, CDWF-Candidate
Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am a licenced professional counselor, specializing in helping clients get emotionally “unstuck” and grow to live a life in full bloom, which means thriving instead of just surviving.
With over 15 years of experience as a counselor, I am a Certified Imago Relationship Counselor and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have enjoyed leading numerous groups and workshops over the years and have completed an extensive training with Dr. Brené Brown’s team to understand and teach The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ curricula.
In this safe environment, we will explore the process of getting back up and rising strong after stumbling or falling when we dare greatly and take risks in the world. Together, we will identify our stories about ourselves and others that get in the way of us getting back up after a setback. In a safe environment, we will support each other as we rumble with the emotions that get stirred by our stories. And learn how to rewrite the endings to our stories based on our values that light our way and give us the strength to carry on. With warmth and compassion, I invite you to join us on this journey.
