Daring Greatly™️ is a intensive, hands-on workshop based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown on the power of vulnerability. It takes courage to be vulnerable, as being vulnerable is inherently risky and uncertain. However, it is vulnerability that allows us to grow and benefit most in life. Dr. Brown’s method was developed to help men, women, and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver, more fulfilled lives. The primary focus is on developing resilience skills and developing a courage practice that transforms the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
When it comes to your personal or professional life…..
- Do you find your inner critic running the show?
- Are you able to embrace your imperfections and find the power in doing so?
- Do you want to cultivate the courage to go the extra mile?
- Are you tired of ‘hustling’ for acceptance from others?
During the Daring Greatly™ weekend workshop, you will learn how to apply Dr. Brown’s insights and research findings into your day-to-day life. You choose the area you want to work on and through a process of sharing, learning and exploring you will find powerful and transforming new ways to show up wholeheartedly in your life.
Daring Greatly™ will help you:
- Deepen your personal and professional relationships
- Cultivate intimacy and connection
- Develop courage and embrace your vulnerability
- Let go of fears that hold you back
- Drop the need for perfectionism
- Demonstrate compassion and empathy to deepen your connection to others
- Increase your capacity to experience joy, contentment, stillness and creativity
- Embrace the power of your own life story
The workshop is an interactive mix of:
- Psycho experiential and educational exploration
- Viewings of videos from Brené, created specifically for Daring Greatly™
- Group discussion
- Creative exercises
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.
