As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF), I believe it’s important to examine how fear, shame, and feelings of not being good enough may be standing in the way of embracing our story and accepting who we are while cultivating resilience. The Daring Way curriculum is based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, which highlights the importance of choosing to live an authentic life. Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries, and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable; exercising the compassion that comes from knowing that we are all made of strength……Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.
The Daring Way™ curriculum can be incorporated with individual and small group counseling, and I also offer small group book studies and presentations based on the Daring Way™ and publications of Dr. Brené Brown.
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 we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us 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.
