Daring Greatly™

A 1 day intensive workshop for young adults (18+)

Led by Kathleen Wawrzyniak Webb, PsyD, Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator

Friday, May 24th 2019 | 8:30am-6pm

Cost: $200 | Payment Plans Available | Light refreshments; lunch on your own (lots of great food options in the area!)

Are you losing sight of what’s really important to you?  Do you have regret about not applying for that dream job, having a difficult conversation with a loved one,  signing up for a class, or facing a situation you’ve been avoiding?

This one day intensive workshop explores the process of stepping into the “arena” – choosing to step out of your comfort zone, standing up and being your authentic self. Join us to learn how to live more meaningfully based on the research of Brené Brown and her book, Daring Greatly. You’ll find out:

  • how to make decisions that you’re proud of and that are consistent with your values
  • stepping out of your comfort zone to grow
  • using courage and vulnerability to live the life you want
  • improving your connection with self and others
  • learning about the ways we self-protect and cause disconnect
  • understanding how the universal feeling of shame plays a role in your life
Space is limited; register to secure your spot. When you register by May 1st, you’ll receive a journal! Participants will also receive materials to be used after the workshop for ongoing learning. Choose courage and be all in!

Where am I, How did I get here and Where am I going?” Workshop at West Hartford Yoga

Presented by DJ Horn, Kathleen Webb and WHY’s Sharon Smith

Sunday, 9/15/19 | 12:30-4:30pm | @West Hartford Yoga

This movement and meditation practice will weave an explorative journey into self as we examine our beliefs, values and choices that impact our present life. Through interactive and movement based / experiential exercises, we explore:

• HOW and what choices, behaviors and other factors created our WHERE WE ARE lifestyle.

• We will reflect on its congruence with our values.

• We will identify forces that distract us from our priorities and unhealthy coping.

Let’s learn how to live authentically and mindfully to create WHERE we are going. Come join this interactive yoga workshop to open your eyes into more meaningful living!

Course will include a combination of yoga and movement and dyad/group sharing. This course is appropriate for all adults. Yoga and movement will be appropriate for all levels and can easily be modified to address needs and concerns.

Walk with a Doc

Inspired by a internationally recognized non-profit organization, GHW began a chapter of WWAD in 2017 to create a resource in the community for learning, joining with neighbors, and encouraging physical movement.  WWAD events are free and open to all. Each walk starts with a brief presentation by a local provider about a health topic.  Following the presentation, the group goes for a walk for informal conversation and connection.  All ages and abilities welcome. 

Join us every Wednesday in May 2019 @ 6:30pm. Meet us in front of our office building, 40 Avon Meadow Lane, Avon, CT 06001. We’ll have our table set up and we’ll be wearing our special WWAD t-shirts!

May 1, May 8, May 15, May 22, & May 29 @ 6:30pm. If you’re not sure if we’re walking due to inclement weather, call our office at 860.878.2028.
