The Gifts of Imperfection  curriculum teaches how to Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are.


The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process facilitators 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 choices 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. Further information is available at



The physics of vulnerability is simple:  If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fail. Rising Strong is a book about 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 greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.



BOLD is a Courage Building Program for Adolescents. It's name is an acronym which stands for:

live Brave. be Original. Love big. Dare greatly. It explores the concepts of trust, values, vulnerability, self-compassion, empathy, shame, and resilience. The goal is to be able to be authentic and more comfortable with self and others.
