The Daring Way™ Intensive Retreat


About the daring way™

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.


Learning Outcomes

After attending the Daring Way™, you’ll be able to:

  • Use your values in day-to-day situations

  • Talk about trust in a way that deepens relationships

  • Create and hold boundaries in relationships

  • Identify when you’re feeling vulnerable and respond mindfully

  • Practice empathy and compassion with yourself and others.

"Since my first introduction to Brené’s work back in 2012, I've seen the power of owning your story both personally and professionally.  We as a culture do not talk about shame and yet we feel it in all areas of our lives.  Through this coursework, we can learn to show up, be seen and live brave together." - Rachael L.
