Will this be a safe place for all women regardless of race, ethnicity, story, or spiritual journey? YES, absolutely. In the room of grace, we are able to be honest with who we are, acknowledging privilege (or lack there of), owning preconceived expectations, and allowing room for doubt or questions. Please know that we will be discussing areas of racism, privilege, spiritual abuse, and shame from the stage and in the breakouts.

What about Handicap Accessibility? There are a large number of handicap parking spots as well as handicap accessible areas of the main auditorium, however, two of the breakout session rooms are challenging to access. If you plan to attend a session in one of the two breakouts that do not have accessibility, please email us direction at and an InCourage team member will escort you to that breakout session.
