Brave Retreat '24

Brilliance Emerge is thrilled to announce its upcoming annual conference, set to take place as a retreat at Camp Lebanon in MN from April 12th to 14th, 2024. Named the "Brave Conference", this event will center on empowering women who seek to break free from traditional norms in all areas of life. The conference embodies our commitment to restoring happiness, self-worth, and purpose, aiming to inspire participants to courageously pursue their deep-seated aspirations. Additionally, the Brave Conference endeavors to unleash the potential of women aiming for personal growth and transformation in their current lives. Brilliance Emerge is wholly dedicated to creating life-changing experiences for women of all ages, empowering them to nurture courage and conviction. In that same way, women attending the conference will have an opportunity to engage in community with other women to support each other's wisdom and experiences while walking away transformed, restored, and equipped to reach their full potential.

Event Speakers

Abide with Nia-Symonne Yoga Session

Nia-Symonne is an artist and emerging curator, studying at Augsburg University. She is passionate about community and bringing others together and is the owner of The Alcove, a black-owned, women-led artist collective focused on bringing creatives of diverse backgrounds together. Nia-Symonne is passionate about empowering others to lean into self-care for the body and mind through yoga. Introduced to yoga through her mother in her early adolescence, she connected with the simple and effective path to wellness. When struggling with anxiety in 2022, Nia-Symonne found yoga to be instrumental in inviting peace and balance into her life. Fuelled by her desire to be a part of the healing journey for others, in 2023, she went on to receive her 200HR Yoga Teacher Certification. Yoga provides a meaningful and serene way for Nia-Symonne to not only connect with other people and support their physical and mental health in one setting but also provides her a tangible way to honor God with her body. This session will be an opportunity to steward your body while integrating faith and Godly principles through Christ-affirming music and scripture-infused cues.

Nominate A Radiant Woman

At Brilliance Emerge, we truly love to support the restoration, emergence, and equipping of women in our communities. While we focus on influencing women in adopting new, holistic visions for their life, we want to honor the women in our communities that are doing this work in their own spheres of influence and expertise. The Radiant Woman is a brave, fearless, and powerful woman who brilliantly emanates great joy, love, health, confidence, resilience, and hope. She too is intentional to create transformative spaces for other women to grow in faith, courage and conviction and feel empowered. We all likely know a Radiant Woman or two or more! She could be your sister, mother, daughter, pastor, neighbor, mentor, friend, or colleague. Please consider a woman in your life who in her circle of influence, embodies radiance as demonstrated above and fill out the form below to nominate that woman to receive the first Brilliance Emerge Radiant Woman award.
