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. Further information is available at

She has spent the last 12 years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame. Her groundbreaking work has been featured on PBS, CNN and Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday
