I first discovered Dr. Brené Brown’s work through her famous Ted talk “The Power of Vulnerability”. This led to me reading her books and eventually undertaking her training for professionals in 2015. The curriculum that she has developed from her research has given me a depth of understanding of the truths she lives and the truths I hope to live too. Participating in her training triggered a whole new personal journey for me; terrifying and beautiful all at once.
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 organisational 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 behaviours 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.

ABOUT RISING STRONG™
The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
Here’s how Brené describes the progression of her work: The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you. Daring Greatly – Be all in. Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again.
