WE ALL STRUGGLE. If we are BRAVE enough, OFTEN enough, we will inevitably find that sometimes we fall. And sometimes when we do, we don’t get back up and we give up. If we want to break away from the crowd, and pursue our heart desires, we have to be courageous, we have to RISE STRONG.
The Rising Strong™ Retreat is designed to provide participants an opportunity to learn practices to rise stronger when we experience setbacks, failures and challenges in our life.
Join us October 5 - 6, 2019
2 days of Rising Strong in Bluffton, SC at the unforgettable Montage Palmetto Bluff.


On Day One of this experiential retreat, we will guide you through Rising Strong™ practices, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown and her New York Times best-selling book Rising Strong™. You will gain an understanding of the different transitional periods in the "messy middle" of your climbing back up after a face-down moment.  We will cover positive practical tools and strategies to live a more authentic, empowered, self-compassionate, and brave life.

On Day Two we get to GRIT & GROWTH in the dirt of the Arena!

      GRIT =  Guts. Resilience. Initiative. Tenacity.


You will literally step into an arena. You will not just talk the talk, you will walk the walk. This is where you will find your grit with the support of Equus® coaching. The combination of Rising Strong practices combined with the real-time application of Equus® Coaching allows you to move you’re learning from your head to your heart through the power of the herd.  


The horses get to the heart of the matter...the place where true knowing resides. Horses are keenly aware of authenticity. It is their ability of bringing people to a greater self-awareness that makes them such powerful co-facilitators.  Real growth can only occur when we are true to ourselves.  In this way, they allow us

to hit the "reset button" and transform the way we live.  

* No previous horse experience required. All activities take place on the ground (no riding).  It's even okay to be  afraid of horses. If you feel pulled to attend this retreat, we have years of experience gently and safely guiding  participants at their personal level of comfort around horses.

We all have arenas of our life we want to fully show up, be seen and dare to live brave. Its one thing to know something in theory, it's another to actually put it into practice. It can be scary as hell and it certainly takes grit. 


By taking part in the Rising Strong Retreat, you will learn how to apply the Rising Strong process to your day-to-day life and become an empowered, highly resilient individual
