Description

DARING WAY™ FAITH CREATED FOR CONNECTION WOMEN’S RETREAT

Led by Merritt L Benz, LCSW, Certified Daring Way Facilitator

ARE YOU LOOKING

to develop a deeper connection with God but the messages of “I’m not enough” or "I'm too much" creep into your head and you assume that to connect with God, you need to get your life together first?

WAS THERE A TIME

Where your faith made sense and then life got messy and there were more questions about God than answers, and less trust in community and more comfort in isolation? Or Maybe you’ve never had doubts about your faith but still can’t seem to shake the pressure to be perfect and long to open up and say “I love God but I don’t know if God loves the messy, imperfect parts of me”

THE GOOD NEWS

is that we are created for connection- with God and others- exactly as we ARE, no edits, no modifications- faithful or faithless, every part and detail of our story and life matters to God. When we take the risk to share our story with others- we experience wholehearted and authentic connection with God and others. It is holy ground, sacred space- a place we were created to experience, no matter what places you have been.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Keynote/teaching presentations, guided and structured small group sessions and individual time to write and reflect.
  • Content and materials to be based of off The Daring Way ™ that discusses how comparisons shame and perfectionism keep us from building meaningful relationships with others (and don’t match with the intention or purpose for which God created us to experience)
  • Use of the Psalms, Genesis 1-3 and the life and experiences of Christ as a model for exploring topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness.
  • Whether you are in introvert, extrovert, love or loathe “retreats” there will be space for you to be you and have an opportunity to experience growth, connection and spiritual formation.

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT

To be forced to share anything you do not feel comfortable sharing. What you share with the group is completely up to you. The workbook and exercises are set up in a way that you can work through your own thoughts and feelings and then share only if you feel led.

The Daring Way ™is based on the research of Brené Brown, PhD and her process uses metaphor, story-telling, experiential, and creative exercises to explore how to find what we want more of in our lives and let go of what is holding us back. All Daring Way programs are led by facilitators who have completed The Daring Way training and certification process,
