about the daring way™

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. During the process facilitators 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.

Here’s how Brené describes the progression of her work:

  • The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you.

  • Daring Greatly – Be all in.

  • Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again.
