Rising Strong™: The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.
Based on the research of Brené Brown
“The truth is that falling hurts. The dare is to keep being brave and feel your way back up.”
- Brené Brown
The physics of vulnerability are simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall.
It is in these moments, when we have fallen, that we must draw on our courage and feel our way back up. Rising Strong™ is a cognitive-behavioral practice which teaches us what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new chapter. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
In this experiential workshop, Dr. Carli Kody will guide participants through the Rising Strong™ practice, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown and her New York Times best-selling book Rising Strong. Dr. Kody will teach participants how to move through the three acts of the Rising Strong™ process: Act 1- the reckoning, Act 2 - the rumble, and Act 3 – the revolution. Workshop participants will learn fundamental skills to examine their personal narratives about falls, mistakes and challenges in their personal and professional lives along with ways to cultivate mindfulness, resilience, and grit.
This experiential workshop will equip participants with the practical cognitive and behavioral skills needed to rise strong in the face of adversity in our lives. Workshop content will include individual reflection, small and large group discussion, and Brené Brown's videos, which are part of the Rising Strong™ curriculum. Participants are strongly encouraged to read Dr. Brené Brown's book, Rising Strong, in preparation for the workshop.
Dr. Kody facilitates Rising Strong™ workshops in one-day and two-day formats along shorter workshops to meet the needs of organizations.
The opposite of recognizing that we’re feeling something is denying our emotions. The opposite of being curious is disengaging. When we deny our stories and disengage from tough emotions, they don’t go away; instead, they own us, they define us. Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending—to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think - Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how this story ends. - Brené Brown
