The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings.
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.

If you’re also like me, when asked, “what are your New Year’s resolutions?” I tend to freeze up, feel the tension paralyze my shoulders, and the social pressure to list off specific goals in various areas of my life—career, health, relationships, financial, social, etc.
It feels overwhelming.
