7 Week Group

The Daring Way™ : Living Wholeheartedly

Based on the research of Brené Brown

The group focuses on identifying what is holding you back in your life and how to develop the skill set needed to live a more courageous and connected life. The material is based on the life work of Dr. Brené Brown in the area of shame and vulnerability. The Daring Way™ group is designed to help participants build resilience to shame, foster self-compassion as well as learn the key elements to living a wholehearted life.
“When we can let go of what other people think and own our story, we gain access to our worthiness—the feeling that we are enough just as we are and that we are worthy of love and belonging. When we spend a lifetime trying to distance ourselves from the parts of our lives that don’t fit with who we think we’re supposed to be, we stand outside of our story and hustle for our worthiness by constantly performing, perfecting, pleasing, and proving. Our sense of worthiness—that critically important piece that gives us access to love and belonging—lives inside of our story.”
― Brené Brown

Do you sometimes find:

Anxiety, self-judgement, criticism, or self-doubt present in your life more than you would like?
Uncertainty undermining joy, questioning if you are good enough, smart enough or productive enough?
You worry what other people think, say yes instead of no, wanting to be seen as nice or avoid conflict?
Does perfectionism sometimes run your life, “if only I could do it just right then I could feel okay?”

The group is interactive focusing on helping you identify and transform:

What is holding you back from living the life you desire
How to develop the skills to live your life with courage, compassion and joy
How to integrate these new skills into your life and increase your confidence and sense of self
Deepening your connection to yourself and the people you love

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
