retreat location

Our special retreat location is the Dancing Spirit Ranch in Whitefish, Montana.

"Dancing Spirit Ranch is a peaceful yet dynamic place of conscious co-creation between man and nature. Where the earth, the elements and the natural cycles of life are given center stage in the incredible beauty of Montana. A meeting place of ancient tradition and new wisdom, we celebrate the animals and winged ones who share this land and sky, as well as the voices of the trees, the stones, the mountains and the stars. We also celebrate your voice...for in the stillness, splendor and simplicity that one can experience here, you can begin to feel the rhythm of your own heart while breathing deeply in connection with nature. With space to listen, you can start to hear and ultimately share the quiet voice that has often been silenced in our rushing world. This is the invitation we extend to you...a place to bring your creative, joyful spirit along with your family, friends and community."

the daring way

Are you ready to transform the way you live, love and lead? If you answer yes, this workshop, created from the groundbreaking research of Dr. Brené Brown, is for you.

If you resonate with any of the following points, your life will be enriched by this course:

     You struggle feeling like you’re not enough

     You feel alone and/or lonely

     You want to be authentic but don’t know how

     You want deeper and more meaningful connections with others

     You want to be brave, but are scared

     You want more confidence and good feeling about yourself.

Together, we’ll explore the topics of courage, vulnerability, shame and perfectionism, and get curious about the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that hold us back. We’ll have the opportunity to make new choices and create practices that will move us to a more authentic and wholehearted way of living, to “show up, be seen and live brave.”

We’ll watch exclusive training videos as Brené introduces each topic, followed by reflection and group discussion.  You’ll receive a Daring Way™ Workbook to support your learning, as well as provide a source of reference as you implement positive change in your life.
