Daring to Own Your Story
A retreat for women
(who are blind or visually impaired)
Why attend a retreat specifically for visually impaired women?At times when facing vision loss, many women may feel isolated because they often don't know anyone who shares their unique challenges. This retreat is an opportunity to connect and share stories with other women experiencing vision loss. You will also leave with empowering tools and new insight through the Brene Brown, www.brenebrown.com -- www.thedaringway.com, experiential activities. This retreat is an experience to truly own and celebrate who you are and your story.
Becky Andrews, LCMHC and Nicole Wall, LCMHC will lead you on an amazing journey of connection, learning, growth, adventure and laughter.
Becky Andrews, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and owner and clinical Director of Resilient Solutions, Inc (blind from Retinitis Pigmentosa).
