What everyone LOVED in 2017:
Incredible speakers, 15-20 minutes each
Music (live music, audience participation, All Sisters Choir)
Art Rooms
Fun, Sisterhood, Connection, Resort Setting/Venue, Learning—all the Ah Ha’s!

What we are hearing we need more of:
A slower pace…more free time, rest, relaxation, time for friendship & connection
More Brave Girl Camp retreat-type activities led by Melody

The 2018 Symposium schedule is stretched out…on the main days (Thursday and Friday) you’ll have big blocks of free time (no Breakouts scheduled) so you can rest, make art, go for a walk, take a nap, slow down, process what you’ve learned…whatever YOU want to do. The fabulous optional Breakouts will be on the ‘wings’….before and after the main Symposium (Wednesday & Saturday).


​​​​​​​"​By far, one of the most positive, loving , honest, deep feeling, musical, hard laughing, unconditionally accepting events I have ever been to... Thank you EVERYONE for allowing me to share this time with you.... - My heart is totally saturated with good good love." -J. Gray

" 'The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.' (Socrates) This quote reflects perfectly the Brave Girls Symposium that I attended in Boise, ID this past weekend. Melody Ross and Kathy Wilkins and their staff brought together a group of speakers that conveyed the change we need to see in this world! I was absolutely blown away and I am still digesting all of the information, energy and love that was pouring out of the Brave Girl Symposium." - S. Kinnison

"Last week at this time I attended the life changing Brave Girl Symposium! What an honor and blessing it was! There was truth, honesty, trust, love, respect, guidance, no judgement and sometimes a handy box of tissues to help dry the tears of happiness & tears of needed release!" -C. Halpin

"Amazing speakers. Hugs, laughs, and tears. Beautiful flowers, beautiful art, beautiful food, and beautiful music. Healing wounds and reconnecting hearts. Diversity in every way. Finding sisters in strangers. Boots and lace. Setting aside lies and rules that just aren't true. Disappointments, weirdness and problems met with kindness and grace.<3 I was insecure and unsure, and she saw me, she heard me and she loved me anyway. I am overwhelmed by the MAGNITUDE of it all. Grateful. Renewed. Ready." -S. Otto 

"I spent last week at Brave Girl Symposium....I will say, I am personally feeling inspired to channel my work in the world into places that are starving for more compassion, love and self expression. To use my voice to tell my stories and to stand up for those without a voice. To open my heart even MORE even when all it wants to do is shut down. To ask questions when I don't know the answers. To walk gently on the Earth and to keep asking the question, "What can LOVE do?" This is what I can do...right now, right here. " -F. Bowley

"Thank you Melody & Kathy for everything! I will be forever changed by this amazing experience and the beautiful women I met here. My time with new friends started here but will last a lifetime. I am so grateful for all of you." -S. Daubar

"My heart has been cracked open and the love is overflowing! To quote the incomparable Yve Evans, 'I'm drinking from my saucer because my cup has overflown.' Thank you to Melody Ross and Kathy Wilkins and the many, many Brave Girl volunteers AND hotel staff for creating the most beautiful, loving bubble in which to take it all in, I am forever changed! To quote one of my favorite songs, 'Because I knew you, I am changed for good.'" -K. Barton

"What a truly wonderful event. As always, the Brave Girls Club outdid themselves at the first annual Brave Girl Symposium. It was a phenomenal three days! Thank you, Melody Ross and Kathy Wilkins. You are changing the world and I am honored to be a part of it." -A. Bowles
