The Tabernacle

Creating 'spaces' to experience the presence of God

Living Courage

In a climate of extreme change where God is doing unprecedented things and our world is moving a faster speed, our capacity to live courageously is vital. Living courageously is one of the greatest needs and challenges of our day. What does living with courage look like especially in a highly saturated shame culture and how do I maintain this? What is courage and how do I create resilience to shame and fear to live fully alive? How do I do this personally or corporately?

This is an invitation to carve out a ONE DAY investment. By the end of this day you will be inspired and equipped practically for the journey of living courage spiritually, relationally and emotionally as you pursue your destiny. Living Courage is the result of Helen’s study under Dr Brene Brown and includes material from the work of International Leaders Dr Curt Thompson, Henri Nouwen, Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu and Rev Danny Silk.

Available for Leadership, Management or Staff Teams within Business, Christian Ministry or the Education Sectors, Connect groups, Women’s groups. All we need is a minimum group size of 10 plus covering our travel expenses.

What others have said..

“Helen displays a wealth of knowledge on how shame and fear affect relationships and individuals. Her presentation was insightful, developing the connection between Sociological research on shame and vulnerability and the spiritual impact on individuals, communities and nations. She worked with our group of women articulating the problems currently facing our culture and indicating a number of ways forward into resilience, wholeheartedness and courage.” Jo Evans, Church Planter and Senior Leadership Team, Red Church, Australia.

”Key to a church leader’s health and effectiveness in Kingdom work is the understanding and management of self and others. The Living Courage workshop provided me with profound insight and practical tools that I have drawn upon again and again in my work. I feel better able to identify vulnerability and to know how to lead others and myself towards creativity and courage, which has released people into greater freedom in Christ. An incredibly helpful workshop led with great clarity and energy by Helen, that I would recommend to church leaders, or to anyone desiring to better know themselves and others.” Rev Craig Ogden, Plentylife Anglican Church, Melbourne, Australia.

“We had the privilege of having Helen lead a day of ‘Living Courageously’ recently. It blessed many and was a turning point in identifying what was holding us back in living in full abundance of what God has for us. She helped us to become aware of what is happening in today’s culture and how it can shut us down spiritually and bound us up emotionally. The day was engaging and fun. Helen shares from her own journey, and passionately offers the gold in which she has discovered in her walk with Christ.”    Greta Dench, Leader of Women’s Ministry, Melbourne, Australia.

“I’ve enjoyed pondering: He came as a Big God to make a Big People for a Big Moment in history! We are here for NOW!”

“Unpacking the ideas in this course is dynamite! As a result of this course I have made a life decision to come out of my little hidy corner and face up to vulnerability courageously. To not give into fear anymore. This has been tremendously insightful for me.”

“It was a treat indeed! Extremely amazing, insightful, encouraging and so gentle Helen’s teaching. His presence plus food for the soul and mind. Thank you Helen.”

“The depths of the teaching. All the research and how the research mostly sits with ‘common sense’ which sits with the Word of God.”

“The self-awareness I have gained from this course is immeasurable. Unpacking the shame based culture so I am equipped to love courageously. Realised my whole understanding of God is based around fear – a great deal of unlearning to do there now!”
