Living a brave life is not always easy. We are inevitably going to stumble and fall. It’s what you do after a fall that matters. Based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. Brené Brown, RISING STRONG after a fall is how we cultivate WHOLEHEARTEDNESS. It’s the process that teaches us the most about who we are.

Rising Strong - A Weekend Workshop with Cynthia Benge, MSW, LHMC and in Partnership with Shakti Vinyasa Yoga
This workshop includes daily yoga sessions with Lisa Black!
Cynthia Benge, MSW-LMHC, is a Certified Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ facilitator, workshop leader, and a therapist with over 20 years of experience in private practice in Seattle.
As a grounded theory researcher, Dr. Brené Brown has listened as a range of people—from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents—share their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. What did all these people have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
The Rising Strong Weekend Workshop picks up where Daring Greatly leaves off – the rumble, the dusting yourself off, and the rise back to being ALL IN, whatever the situation. With a series of videos created specifically by Dr. Brené Brown for the Rising Strong™ program and exercises and activities led by Cynthia Benge, participants will have an opportunity to explore their stories of disappointment or hardship and walk away with a “road map” for Rising Strong in the face of adversity or challenge. The weekend will offer a small group setting that is a positive, safe, supportive and fun environment for learning how to live bravely.
During this three-day Rising Strong weekend workshop, you will:
~ Begin to embrace the truth and power in your story
~ Learn a proven process for developing resiliency and methods for managing emotional triggers
~ Develop strategies for rising stronger after a fall or setback in your personal or professional life
~ Leave empowered to proactively make positive changes in your life
From Rising Strong, the bestselling book by Dr. Brené Brown:
“Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives.”
