This is a pretty specific gift idea and it’s only for ladies who are blind or visually-impaired. Sorry to be exclusive on this one, but once you read more, you’ll understand.
In lieu of exchanging presents this year, Joy and I have decided to give each other the gifts of travel, mental health, and personal growth all rolled into one. Merry Christmas!!!
“Daring to Own Your Story” by Becky Andrews and Nicole Wall
A retreat for women
(who are blind, visually impaired, or have been diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition)
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, 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 Soltuions, Inc (blind from Retinitis Pigmentosa).
Nicole Wall, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Certified Daring Way Candidate. Facilitates the Daring Way Course by Brene Brown.
