I’ve never thought of myself as a courageous person. Trauma – in multiple forms – distorted my life. My muscles, my breath, and my soul constricted -permanently, it seemed. That’s how I journeyed through all my days for many, many years.
But I survived and persevered, which I now know requires an incredibly brave heart.
Often, I think we mistake courage as bold, brash, and big. Yet it can be the tiniest steps that unleash momentous change or a quiet determination that inspires right action.
So let’s push away the conventional descriptions and look inside to discover the true meaning of courage for ourselves.
Complete Your Year with Joy and Courage
I’m so delighted the Winter Joy Retreat with Cigdem Kobu will focus on courage this year!
I’ve been feeling clutched by conflict, pulled in two directions yet paralyzed. My intuition says it may be a minuscule shift in perspective that will liberate me. I suspect this year’s exploration of courage will bring the clarity I seek because last year’s online retreat was so powerful.
This special online event is only for women and takes place only once a year. These are a few of the words I would use to describe the sweet experience:
During the retreat, you receive a heart-felt letter each day that encourages you, makes you think, and invites you to explore all the nooks and crannies of the year’s theme. There’s also a sincere group of intrepid women – 150 last year – following along and sharing their insights too.
Did I say it’s online? You don’t have to travel through rain, snow, or sleet. Just get cozy in your own room. You can participate as much or as little as you wish in the discussions.
I’m very careful about what I suggest to you. With that in mind, it’s easy to say I wholeheartedly recommend the Winter Joy Retreat, click here to learn more. It runs from December 1 to December 22. This is a partner link, which means – if you click and join – it’s a win for all!
Think about completing the year with joy and courage! If you choose to join the retreat, I’ll be there in cyberspace with you. I can hardly wait!
