I am a certified Daring Way™ candidate and facilitate workshops using Brené Brown’s The Daring Way™ curriculum.

DW_FlyerSeal1They are designed to provide time and space to dig deep into the things that get in the way of living the authentic life we truly desire. Using metaphor, story-telling, and experiential exercises, we will examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back. This work will identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward to more authentic and wholehearted living.

Exercises and group discussion are designed to:  

  • Gain insight into barriers to intimacy and connection in relationships
  • Identify the masks and strategies we use to avoid vulnerability
  • Cultivate the courage to embrace all parts of ourselves
  • Engage our sense of worthiness in our current relationships and cultivate hope for new ones

lanternYou will expand your awareness of what is getting in the way of living wholeheartedly – of daring greatly.

Other workshop topics will include:

  • learning the difference between shame and guilt
  • identifying triggers and vulnerabilities
  • practicing empathy and self-compassion
  • debunking negative beliefs
  • reaching out to others
  • creating, embracing, and inspiring change

Most importantly, we will share our stories with others in a safe, supportive environment.

“The Daring Way three day intensive was a journey to a new way of living. Leading a wholehearted life does not mean perfection but the willingness to act out of my story, own it and show up bravely to myself and others.”
“The group opened me in a way that no other experience could have. It helped me ‘practice’ all of the skills, emotions and fears I’ve been struggling with and permanently changed my perspective.”
“Daring Greatly was a powerful experience for me in being authentically myself, being courageous in my vulnerability and feeling a genuine sense of connection.”
“The Daring Way was my first step in learning what Wholehearted Living feels and looks like. The time spent exercising vulnerability with my group changed the way I see myself and others. I have a better understanding of empathy, shame, and trust.”
“The Daring Way™ is a gift you will give yourself and I encourage anyone who wants to live a more courageous and authentic life to attend this program.”
“Understanding shame, how it shows up in your life and being able to find a way through it is one of the most critical and important things a person can do for themselves.  I am beginning on a path to live my life in a much fuller and more authentic way.”
“This program was an incredibly healing way for me to address losing a job that I loved due to a corporate restructuring.  The program helped us get to the bottom of some core issues that all of us as human beings face.  This is a deep exploration about what holds us back from living a “wholehearted life”.
“Sharing issues in a safe, empathetic environment helped to realize we all have our stuff and are worthy of joy and love just the same!”
“I had a breakthrough in self-support that I didn’t know how to do before because I was looking outside myself–looking to be supported by others.  Now I can do it for myself.”
