The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. Workshop participants will explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

Way™ Facilitator. I am so excited to come

alongside you and help you explore the

shame messages that are keeping you from

living a wholehearted life as well as how to

overcome those shame messages and move

towards more authentic living.
