More about Women of Courage

This is an  intensely powerful program of connection – to self, others and the environment. It is intended for women who have progressed through their own personal healing and are ready to challenge themselves in a new setting. With a highly trained and experienced team of compassionate female instructors and a psychologist, the course will focus predominantly on increasing self-esteem and self-reliance, building supportive relationships with other women and encouraging a sense of “trying something new”. This could be anything from hiking for the first time, sleeping in the outdoors or trying abseiling. Participants are facilitated through a challenging and inspirational outdoor journey, including activities like rock climbing and rafting, wilderness hiking expeditions and personal development sessions. These activities encompass our philosophy of “challenge by choice”.
