Tell me if this sounds familiar...You feel uncomfortable setting boundaries in case you disappoint someone, so you often end up having to do things that make you feel resentful.You spend your day caring for other people’s needs – maybe for your kids, your husband, your boss, your parents, your friends. It feels like there is no time to do basic things to care for yourself.You’re a perfectionist and are very hard on yourself. You spend a lot of time worrying about what others think of you. You over-analyze everything you say to others, regretting what you said or didn’t say.You feel like no one – not even your closest friends and family – really understand you, because you don’t let anyone see you be vulnerable. You feel like expressing your struggles would create a burden for others, so you bottle them up.You feel lost – like you’re just an actor playing a role, because you feel disconnected from your own life and don’t know who you are anymore.WE ALL CAN FEEL A LITTLE LOST OR STUCK AT SOME POINT IN OUR LIVES.You are not alone.If you feel adrift from the course your life is truly meant to take, like a boat bobbing around, directionless, then it’s time we followed your true north and navigated you home to your Wholehearted Life.
It’s out there. The one where you can experience joy, fulfillment, aliveness and impact.
DURING THIS PROCESS, YOU’LL LEARN:
What is empathy and what are empathic misses.
How to practice self-compassion, screw it up and circle back.
How shame might be keeping you from daring greatly and how to cultivate shame resilience.
What your shame armory looks like, tastes likes, smells like and feels. We all use armor to protect ourselves, but that armor is heavy and prevents us from growing, being seen,and being in connection with others.
Perfectionism – It is not the same thing as striving for excellence. It is the opposite. Shame is the birthplace of perfectionism.
Foreboding joy – No emotion is more terrifying than joy, because we believe if we allow ourselves to feel joy, we are inviting disaster.
Numbing – how you might be numbing when you feel vulnerable.
Our unwanted identities and triggers.
About the ProgramThere comes a time in our lives when we're called to play bigger, whether that be creating something new, changing our relationships or work, finding our voices or speaking our truth.When it's time to 'show up' with courage, we can find ourselves feeling out of our depth. We doubt ourselves, we hold back, we try too hard, we isolate ourselves, we armour up, we play small, we don't let our true selves be seen.It's hard to lead a mission, or launch a movement, from that place.The way forward is being real, knowing what matters most, transforming our relationship with uncertainty and our emotions, letting ourselves be seen. This is a way of living, a practice, a commitment. It's not always comfortable, but it *is* steeped in integrity and authenticity.The Daring Way™ is a psycho-educational curriculum, full of activities and based on the research of Brené Brown.It's practical and experiential - you'll learn why you do the things you do in relation to how you think others see you, whether they be direct reports or loved ones, and you'll be learning some practical skills you can put into place right immediately after the workshop in your life.
After The Daring Way™
You're clear about what shame is, what triggers you, and you have clarity about what shame-resilience looks like, going forward, for you.You're cultivating deeper connections with the people that matter to you, and feel more authentic in your communication.You know how to stay connected and empathize, but with strong, healthy boundaries.You know what it takes to step into a bigger arena, and what steps to take next.You've begun to surround yourself with support, and know how to ask for help when you need it.The voice in your head is a much kinder one, especially when it's talking directly to you.You lead, communicate and engage others with authenticity, trust, and presence.You feel clear, purposeful, move alive than ever.
We may never be completely shame-free - there will still be days when we feel it. But there is such power and freedom in understanding shame, vulnerability and courage, and having worked out how they have been calling the shots in our lives. It's like letting the genie out of the bottle - once it's out, there's no going back.
I invite you to gift yourself an immersion into YOU.
When we can pause, feel held and unconditionally seen and accepted for who we are, with our imperfections and messiness, it allows us to give ourselves permission to explore the parts of our soul that hasn’t yet been expressed (or fully embrace those parts that we showed once or twice, and felt persecuted for it, so we hide them away again!).
Embody yourself with energy healing, relaxation, fun, laughter, support, and a safe and loving community.
Heal your soul. Begin anew - transformed in the Lord.
