Seasons of Bravery Ritual & Retreat
Learn how to create a ritual around your next season of bravery. Conclude the previous season, make space for the upcoming season, envision the possibilities, identify the friction, map out a plan-of-action, and celebrate accordingly!
You'll receive instructional videos, a .pdf guidebook to use while you're "offline" and a 6-part ritual with easy, step-by-step action items!
Not sure how to "fix" your website? Let's schedule a website audit! You'll discuss the perfect home page strategy for you, which kind of About page is best, and all the quick changes that get epic results from your buttons and copywriting. After a 45-minute video chat with our founder, Emily Ann Peterson, you'll walk away with simple tweaks and small fixes to your website that will empower your self-promotion bravery to feel easier!
Students & ongoing coaching clients enrolled in The School of Bravery get the following content...

Every bravery student gets a Bravery Boost (aka Welcome Call) with our founder Emily Ann Peterson! This is perfect to get yourself acquainted with The School of Bravery, set your initial 30/60/90 day goals, and ask any pressing questions you might have regarding your next feat or season of bravery.
Check out the upcoming calendar of events for The School of Bravery! Every month we host online masterclasses, group coaching, accountability meetups, creative classes, virtual hangouts, and so much more! If you're a currently enrolled student, this is the spot with access to our Zoom link!
2nd & 4th Wednesdays at 11 am Central
Bravery is not a "spectator sport." Group coaching facilitated by Emily Ann Peterson is an excellent way for our students to hone new skills, participate in communal support, and receive "hot seat" personalized guidance. These live events are centered around our monthly bravery ingredient and hosted online via Zoom. Questions can be submitted in advance via Office Hours in our group forum.
Note: To respect everyone's privacy and to encourage live attendance, only the last 15-20 min of each call is recorded (if needed) for questions submitted by absentee students.
Wednesdays in our group forum
Bravery is not a solo expedition. Office Hours are your opportunity to get the weekly support you need for your bravery. Most of our students use this time to get additional coaching from Emily Ann — relationship bravery, career questions, marketing conundrums, creative quandaries, or anything else that may come up!
Some of our students also use these office hours to ping career, business, or marketing questions off of each other. Some students even use this time to share exciting strides of bravery and celebrate the high moments! This time is for you, use it wisely!
Meditation with Kate Fontana
Bravery is meeting yourself in the silence. Each month, guest faculty member, Kate Fontana provides us with a monthly meditation audio for our bravery ingredient of the month.
Kate Fontana is dedicated to the beauty and mess of community building, justice, love, and spiritual & personal growth for all. She is the founder of The Sanctuary Northwest and is a Master's of Divinity candidate at the Seattle School of Theology & Psychology. She is deeply informed by Catholic social teaching; interspirituality; rhythms of liturgy, bodies, and nature; Sacred Feminine traditions of Christianity and Yoga; an unexpected friendship with Jesus; and a theological blend of Harry Potter, the Bhagavad Gita, Battlestar Galactica, and the Gospels.
New meditation audios are available automagically on the 1st of every month!
Yoga With Ashton Szabo
Bravery is a physical experience. Our CORE and VIP students receive a monthly yoga class recording from Ashton Szabo to practice embodying courage in new physical ways!
Guest faculty member, Ashton Szabo is a yoga teacher trainer, body movement expert, and perpetual student of all things spiritual. Heavily influenced by teachers like Douglas Brooks, Joseph Campbell, and Alan Watts, Ashton brings universality to his teachings that extend beyond just the realms of yoga. His concern is for the opening expansion and well-being of his students (aka bravery!) Ashton strives to help each student find what is useful for them in realizing their fullest potential.
New class audios are available automagically on the 1st of every month!
Creative Journal Writing
Bravery is using the blank page. Join your fellow students and Emily Ann Peterson to dive into writing prompts provided by guest faculty, Janet Haney (author of Write Your Way Through Change) We explore each month's bravery ingredient together via Zoom with the empty page, pen, and a few prompts!
This is not your typical "dear diary" writing class. We don't care what you had for lunch, but we do care that you're using ALL the resources available to you to make your bravery as easy as possible! This includes creative writing! You'll walk away empowered to immediately apply a brave, fresh perspective to your own life, career, creativity.
New creative journal prompts are available automagically on the 1st of every month!
Publish with Purpose
We believe every person has a story of bravery. Should yours be a book too? Self-publishing is the single most effective way for you to get your book *out there* for the world to see. Every author's book project is very different, but it is entirely possible for you to go from a thought bubble to a self-published Amazon bestseller in 90 days or less.
Turn blank pages to blueprints, and main ideas into manuscripts, then take that manuscript to market with a level-headed launch! Working with Emily Ann begins with six 1-hr sessions to nail down your book summary, ideal audience, outline, title, overall strategy, and next steps. If you've always wanted to write a book or your creative muse gifted you with the beginnings of one, then let's talk!
Digital Detox Club
Have you ever wanted to take a vacation from your phone or smash it to bits? Wish you could automate the bulk of your screentime and just go for a walk? We want to teach you how to unplug from your stress, distractions, without disconnecting from the things and people you love most!
Using concepts from Emily Ann Peterson's Bare Naked Bravery, members of The School of Bravery's Digital Detox Club will get a 30-day course for effectively stopping your screen addiction and monthly book circle & group coaching for automating the remaining bits and pieces of your life, career, and creativity that need to happen, but on your own watch.
We meet monthly on the 3rd Tuesdays at 7 pm Central. Meeting replays are available to those who cannot attend live. Ongoing support and discussion are available in the dedicated channel in The School of Bravery's Slack group.
Our Next Book: The Shallows: What The Internet Is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr
Courageous Creatives Book Club
Weekly on Wednesdays at 7 pm Central, via Zoom
Bravery is expanding freedom of expression. This group of like-minded creatives meets weekly to discuss their creative careers, the practicalities of making money with art, and the bravery of putting yourself out there as an artist in any form or industry. Join fellow creative visionaries for our ongoing book club and get a (re)introduction to your creative courage too!
As of July 21st, 2021, we're getting ready to dive into Twyla Tharp's beloved book, The Creative Habit: Learn It & Use It for Life with a tentative plan to cover two chapters each week and wrap up the book in 6 weeks. (Yes, you may join us mid-book!) Regardless of the current book, at each book club meeting group members receive group coaching from Emily Ann Peterson, songwriter & author of Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous.
Membership of this group is already included for currently enrolled students. If that's you and you're having difficulty accessing this content or you have additional questions, send an email to email@example.com.
The times were selected to accommodate convenience across Europe, US, Canada, and Australia. (Use this tool to do the correct time zone math.) Most calls are recorded for those unable to attend live. However, live attendance is strongly encouraged, for your benefit obviously.
Why? Because your bravery is needed, worth it, and contagious! There are several ways you can practice your bravery, build your creative courage, and increase your visibility with The School of Bravery. We've got a few ideas ready for you already!
If you're an Ambassador or affiliate of The School of Bravery, (or you'd like to be) this is the area that holds all your assets, links, best practices, and more!
