Nourish your Mind in community with other women engaged in the deeply transformative work of The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. During the process facilitators and participants 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 chosices 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.

 The physics of vulnerability is simple: if we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong™ is framework for 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 greateds call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
