Rising Strong with Lisa Black and Cynthia Benge

Event Navigation


Join Lisa Black and Cynthia Benge, MSW-LMHC for Rising Strong. This powerful weekend combines asana and the groundbreaking work of Dr. Brené Brown, world leading researcher on the power of courage and vulnerability.

We hold ourselves back because we fear not being enough. We let scarcity thinking drive our decisions instead of generosity. We speak more compassionately to others than ourselves. We try to please rather than speaking our truth, fearing we will be judged.

We are capable of doing so much more than we imagine. What if you could learn how to get past the fear, find your worth, and keep rising strong in the face of struggle? Learn to break free of those old patterns of negativity and fear!

Rising Strong™ Will Teach You:

  • A process for rising after failure, disappointment, and loss so we can see that it is exactly in those places of struggle that we can rise strong.
  • The physics of vulnerability – ten guidelines for rising after a fall
  • The power of story in our lives and how stories drive our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors
  • The major emotional offloading strategies and how they move us away from our values
  • How and why emotional curiosity is the key to rising strong
  • How to recognize and capture the stories we make up when faced with struggle
  • What it means to rumble with emotions like shame, guilt, anxiety, blame, accountability, resentment, grief, forgiveness, and perfectionism.
  • How to write our own daring endings to our tough stories
