    If you are a WOMAN who has experienced more than your fair share of pain, this group is for you.

    Do you find that you must show up everyday and be BRAVE just to make it through?

    Press the PAUSE button on shame spirals, panic attacks, isolation, confusion and all sorts of unpleasant experiences that have taken your JOY, POWER and SELF-CONFIDENCE.

    The COURAGEOUS LIVING SKILLS GROUP is a space where you can LEARN to:

    – land in the present moment

    – breathe with greater ease

    – create community with women who ‘get it’

    – use skills and techniques that make living easier

    When awful things happen, it is human nature that we close ourselves to experiences that could lead to more hurt. What many people don’t learn, though, is how to unlock the pain and grief that is held within.

    We’ve got you.

    Within the Courageous Living Skills Group, we welcome you and all parts of you. For 1 hour per week, you are invited to learn simple tools and practice simple skills that will magnify clarity and calm in your life.

    We are focused on removing the blocks that are keeping you from living an empowered life as well as keeping a focus on where you want to go and building habits that will get you there.

    You will never be pressed to share more than you want. Your privacy is important. Everything you do talk about in the group is just for us to know and work through together.

    Understand more about what happens to people when they encounter overwhelming experiences, get to know your individual strengths, the strengths of your community and positively transform your life and the life of those around you.

    NEXT Step?

    Call or email our office to schedule an intake session with Karla. With 1-2 intake sessions, this gives Karla an opportunity to get to know you better, to answer any questions you have about the group and will also serve as an opportunity to support you with preparing for the learning and growing experience ahead.
