The physics of vulnerability is simple:
If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall.
When we take risks in our lives, we will inevitably experience disappointments, hurts, failures and heartbreak.
Rising Strong is 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.
Rising Strong™ Workshop is a research-based program about what it takes for us to get back up, live a more wholehearted and satisfying life by owning our stories. By participating in the Rising Strong™ Workshop you will have the opportunity to explore how to live bravely every day by showing up in the various arenas of your life to become the best, most authentic version of you.
Throughout the workshop, you be will guided through many positive experiential exercises, personal exploration, watch exclusive videos from Brené Brown created specifically for Rising Strong™ participants, and have opportunities for personal reflections and growth in a safe, supportive, positive and fun environment.
The Rising Strong™ Workshop is designed to address your personal goals, relationships, professional and creative lives.

About Your Facilitator
Kylie Lewis is an accredited Daring Way facilitator in both The Daring Way and Rising Strong curriculums, based on the research on Dr Brené Brown. Kylie is a corporate refugee intent on humanising work, and changing the conversations we have with ourselves and others, so that we live strong through courageous choices rather than stay small from fearful voices.
From early studies in psychology and sociology, Kylie built a 20 year corporate career in fast growth businesses before finally understanding that the only thing that makes a culture great is the capacity of individuals to have the skills to handle hard emotions and the courage to have difficult conversations.
After watching Brené Brown's TEDTalks, Kylie took the leap from her corporate career to reignite her love of the social sciences, and start her own business Of Kin in 2013. She has since become a qualified executive coach, an accredited Daring Way practitioner and is currently studying the neuroscience of conversations. She is also a qualified fitness instructor, specialising in group exercise for pregnant and post natal women.
In facilitating this workshop Kylie is working on purpose to lead and participate in a global conversation about vulnerability, courage, shame and worthiness, and provide access to information on how emotion is connected to behaviour and thought. She is passionate about awakening people's curiosity about emotions, and building awareness and the ability to articulate our understanding of emotions. She aims to show how the rising strong process at both micro and macro levels increases wholeheartedness in living, loving and leading.
