Brene Brown's The Daring Way™ Retreat and Workshop

Sunday 28th April - Friday 3rd May 2019
Wilsons Promontory, Victoria

Dare to be great and do this retreat! This is an opportunity to understand yourself; love yourself; be a better braver version of yourself. To feel, really feel all emotions and be content with comfort and discomfort...Thank you, Maggie, for you! I felt safe to explore myself surrounded by a group who were on common ground and who felt safe to feel exposed. This was a ‘game/life’ changer for me and I will be ‘forever young’ and grateful to you!
— Daring Way Retreat participant, 2018

Immersed in the stunning and healing natural beauty of Wilsons Promontory National Park, this unique event presents Brene Brown’s internationally renowned and inspiring Daring Way™ workshop within the context of a restful and restorative mindfulness retreat. In this Sunday-Friday format participants will have ample time and space to integrate and practice the learnings – alternating periods of meditation, journaling, silence, guided relaxation and movement, sharing delicious meals together around the table and walking the breath-takingly beautiful beaches and trails.

 In this practical, fun and experiential format, we will explore the universal human need for love and belonging, and what typically gets in the way.  The Daring Way ™ workshop is designed to support participants in learning – in Brene’s language – how to show up, be seen, and dare to risk vulnerability in order to live braver, more authentic and joyful, lives. The focus is on developing shame resilience and practicing the “gifts” that support wholehearted living - gratitude, joy, self-compassion, creativity, play, rest, authenticity, calm, meaning and laughter. 


In my own life as a partner, mother of three teenage daughters, Couples Therapist, and mindfulness practitioner and teacher, I have found Brene’s work to strike a deep chord especially in helping to understand and work more constructively with the fears that can keep us playing life safe, but small.  As much as I loved her books and TED talks however, I agree with Brene herself that like mindfulness, it is only when the theory becomes integrated into practice and our daily lives in practical ways, that it has the power to transform. This is what motivated my decision to become a Certified Daring Way™ facilitator and to share this work with others, using practices from Mindfulness, Compassion and Positive Neuroplasticity to further complement and consolidate this ground-breaking research.

7:30-8:30 – Walking/Moving practice on the beach
