Body Image Reset

May 2019 Weekend Intensive

How many hours a day do you spend consciously or unconsciously thinking/worrying about your looks?

How often do worries about your looks hold you back from being fully present, enjoying yourself, or even participating in things that are important to you?

What could be possible in your life if you were able to free yourself from repeating the same story about your body? What if you could create a different relationship with your body rather than remaining stuck in old stories and patterns?

If you’ve been living in this society, there’s a pretty good chance body image issues are affecting your quality of life and even holding you back from being your amazing self. This weekend intensive harnesses the power of community and the curriculum from Brené Brown’s Rising Strong to counteract ingrained harmful beliefs and have the courage to love your body (and self) just as you are.

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.


The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process facilitators explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them 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.
