Daring Way™ Workshops: What Can I Get Out of Them?

As a therapist and a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, I often find myself answering questions about our Daring Way™ Workshops, and what people can get from them. People interested in these workshops want to know how these group workshops will benefit them in their daily lives.

To make it easier to share my answer to these queries, I’m jotting down a few of the benefits of exploring the methods that Brené Brown has produced and shared with the world.

Learn Your Values. Examine Your Thoughts, Emotions, and Actions.

Daring Way™ Workshops in New York CityWhere do you want to show up in your life? At work, in your relationship, as a parent, as a friend?

In Brené Brown’s Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™, we see values as guides. Without a strong relationship with our guides, we often find ourselves unintentionally walking in the dark, unsure where we’re going.

In order to show up differently, we can turn to the Daring Way™ for a method of structured personal growth. First, we work to identify what values are important to us. Through our Daring Way™ workshops, we identify how we behave when we are in alignment with our values, and how we behave when we are not. We learn what emotions activate us, and how those emotions can lead us to behave out of alignment with our values. We learn what we need to do to care for our emotions so we can behave more in ways of which we are proud.

Group Work for Individual Growth

During the course of this 8-week workshop, participants complete writing and visual exercises. During the workshops, we often discuss our workbook exercises and actively engage in the practice of being vulnerable with one another and setting healthy boundaries.

We will come to a deep understanding of one of my favorite Brené Brown quotes: “Vulnerability without boundaries is not vulnerability.”

Get the Tools to Live More Authentic and Wholehearted Lives.

Participants leave the workshop not only with a more expansive understanding of themselves but also with the experience of having practiced the task of identifying their boundaries (what’s ok and what’s no ok.)

Participants learn that when we don’t have healthy boundaries, we are creating disconnection rather than connection. We will learn how saying “no” more often really allows us to say “yes” more often.

In this workshop we will cover important topics including vulnerability, shame, trust, empathy and many more. The workshop is a combination of videos from Brené, exercises in our workbook, and group sharing. Of course, I bring my own experiences as a therapist and an individual to the sessions too.

Each participant of our Daring Way™ group workshop receives this beautiful workbook to take home.
