Choosing to live and love with our whole hearts is an act of defiance. You’re going to confuse, piss-off, and terrify lots of people – including yourself. One minute you’ll pray that the transformation ends, the the next minute you’ll pray that it never ends. You’ll also wonder how you can feel so brave and so afraid at the same time … brave, afraid, and totally alive!”
Yep, that pretty much sums up The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong courses and why I love them so damn much.
I am a certified Daring Way™ facilitator both in-person (for those in the Toronto, ON area) and online workshops using Brené Brown’s ‘The Daring Way™’ and new Rising Strong curriculums. These courses are designed to dig deep into the things that get in the way of living an authentic life, which we all truly desire. Using metaphors, story-telling, and experiential exercises, we examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and work to identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living.
Which one is right for you?
The Daring Way™ – If you’re having problems stepping into the spotlight, asking for what you need, or perhaps setting boundaries. If you’re tired of living on the sidelines and instead want to harness your inner badass and make the most out of your life!
Rising Strong – If you’ve had your ass kicked and are struggling to let go. This course will teach you how to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back on your path – with hopefully minimal casualties in the process.
By doing a deep dive into your emotional and spiritual self you will expand your awareness of what is really getting in the way of living a wonderfully wholehearted life. We’ll wrap language around those tough emotions that get in the way, identify your triggers and vulnerabilities, learn how to become as resilient as a rubber ball, and debunk all those negative beliefs that we have about ourselves. Most importantly, we will share our stories with others in a safe, supportive environment.
