Rising Strong™ is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up, and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.

With all the happenings in our world the past few years, let alone the difficulties in our own stories, who doesn’t need to rise?  You are invited to participate in this 8 week group that will connect you with others and support your growth and learning with:

  • Exclusive video presentations featuring Dr. Brené Brown
  • Experienced facilitation by Nancy Schornack, LMHC, CDWF
  • Meaningful sharing and connection with other women
  • Creative and experiential activities to aid your learning

Tuesdays, 9-11 am

Please use the Green Bottle Scale Method below to determine your cost.

Sliding Fee Scale:
I believe in the importance of this work and do my  best to make this offering accessible. If the cost of the workshop is a barrier, I encourage you to invite your community to consider sponsoring you. I would also would like to offer a sliding scale fee option to eliminate financial barriers.  
The Green Bottle Sliding Scale Method, developed by Alexis J. Cunningfolk is a fee structure designed to accommodate participants with different financial means. It is a flexible payment range instead of fixed price for services.  

If you fall into the “full bottle” category on the scale, we ask that you pay the full fee, $300, for the workshop. 
If you fall into the “half-full bottle” category on the scale, we ask you to pay $200 for this workshop.
If you fall into the “quarter-full bottle” category on this scale, we ask that you pay $50 for this workshop.  

I am  offering this on an honor system…no questions asked.  Please assess your situation honestly, and then feel the freedom to register accordingly. 

*  BASIC NEEDS include food, housing, and transportation.
**EXPENDABLE INCOME might mean you are able to buy coffee or tea at a shop, go to the movies or a concert, buy new clothes, books, and similar items each month, etc.


The workshop will be facilitated by Nancy Schornack, LMHC, CDWF.  Nancy is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Certified Daring Way Facilitator, having received extensive training in the work of Dr. Brené Brown.
