Brene Brown's Daring Way Curriculum is for showing up, being seen, living brave

As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF), I lead small groups or individuals through whichever curriculum listed below meets their needs. Please contact me directly to discuss options for you or your small group.

*All coursework is proprietary and trademarked and is not to be shared or distributed.







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

Brene Brown's Rising Strong Curriculum is for building resilience and bouncing back after hardship
Brene Brown's BOLD Curriculum is for helping teens build confidence and courage


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.


Dr. Brené Brown has this to say about herself on her official website


I’m a researcher, storyteller, and (currently enraged) Texan who’s spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy.

Maybe stories are data with soul.

The official line: I’m a research professor at the University of Houston, where I hold the Huffington Foundation Endowed Chair. I am also a visiting professor in management at the University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business. I’ve spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. I’m the author of six #1 New York Times best sellers, and I’m the host of the weekly Spotify original podcasts Unlocking Us and Dare to Lead.

The bottom line: I believe that you have to walk through vulnerability to get to courage, therefore…embrace the suck. I try to be grateful every day, and my motto right now is “Courage over comfort.”

I do NOT believe that cussing and praying are mutually exclusive. And I absolutely believe that the passing lane is for passing only. I’ve been married to Steve for almost 25 years, and we have two amazing kids, Ellen and Charlie, and a weird bichon named Lucy.
