Fall 2017-Rising Strong™ Program with Sonya Nelson

The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.™
Rising Strong™ is a program about what it takes to get back up and try again. It’s about owning your story of struggle so you may have the power to write daring new endings. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong™ the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
Life doesn’t always go your way – you know that. Struggle is part of the human experience and not something you can avoid if you want to live wholeheartedly. How you deal with struggle foretells the quality of your life.
Here’s what Brené Brown says:
“If we’re going to put ourselves out there and love with our whole hearts, we’re going to experience heartbreak. If we’re going to try new, innovative things, we’re going to fail. If we’re going to risk caring and engaging, we’re going to experience disappointment. It doesn’t matter if our hurt is caused by a painful breakup or we’re struggling with something smaller, like an offhand comment by a colleague or an argument with an in-law. If we can learn how to feel our way through these experiences and own our stories of struggle, we can write our own brave endings. When we own our stories, we avoid being trapped as characters in stories someone else is telling.”
If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall.
This is a course about what it takes to get back up.
These are the skills that you can learn with the Rising Strong™ process:
- Recognize when you are hooked by an emotion
- Get curious about the emotion and notice your response to it
- Observe the story you’re compelled to make up to give meaning to what is happening
- “Rumble” with the narrative to deepen self-awareness
- Live BIG with Boundaries, Integrity and Generosity
- Discover the wisdom and meaning underneath the initial “hook” and created story
- Intervene on your own behalf to write an ending that creates the kind of life and relationships you’ve always dreamed of
The Rising Strong™ process is powerful –
but nowhere near as powerful
as the Rising Strong™ practice.
Again, Brené Brown says:
“All revolutions start with a new vision of what’s possible. Our vision is that we can rise from our experiences of hurt and struggle in a way that allows us to live more wholehearted lives. However, transforming the way we live, love, parent, and work requires us to act on our vision: The Rising Strong™ process is nowhere near as powerful as the Rising Strong™ practice. The revolution starts when we own and embody what lives at the heart of rising strong – the story rumble – in our everyday lives.”
