The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of DR. BRENÉ BROWN. The teachings were developed to help men, women, and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and a courage practice that transforms the way we live, love, parent, and lead. This experiential workshop uses art, writing exercises and facilitated discussion to guide you toward:

  • Becoming more conscious of your tendency toward self-critical thinking and judgment of others.
  • Understanding and practicing vulnerability to deepen your connections and spark creativity and change.
  • Identifying your relationship to shame to clear a pathway free of shoulds, coulds and regrets.
