Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.  It means cultivating the courage, compassion and connections to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough.  It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the fact that I am also brave and worth of love and belonging.

 – Brené Brown, PhD, LCSW

The Daring Way™ consists of 4 different curricula that Dr. Brown has developed based on her research and books – “Daring Greatly™”, “Rising Strong™, ”The Gifts of Imperfection™” (NEW!) and ”BOLD™” (NEW – for adolescents!).  All classes include written and experiential exercises, and group discussions. The currently scheduled classes, Daring Greatly™ and Rising Strong™, are limited to 4 adult participants per class to create a more meaningful experience.


DARING GREATLY™ is a class that meets for 2 hours each week for 6 weeks. The objective of the class is to learn what gets in your way of being able to “show up; be seen and live brave™” – to do those things you long to do, but don’t.

When: Wednesdays, January 30th – March 6th; 7-9 pm

Where:  TBA – North Salt Lake/Bountiful area

Cost: $300 all inclusive (workbook, class materials & yummy snacks)


RISING STRONG™ is all about getting back up on your feet after a setback, failure, disappointment, loss or anything else that may have caused you to feel like you’ve been overwhelmed, defeated or shamed in some way.  The objective is regaining your ability to believe in yourself and live a more authentic life. This class meets for 2-1/2 hours for 5 weeks.

When: Wednesdays, March 20th – April 24th; 6:30 – 9 pm  (no class April 3rd due to Davis County Spring Break)

Where: TBA – North Salt Lake/Bountiful area

Cost: $300 all inclusive (workbook, class materials and more yummy snacks)


THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION offers participants the opportunity to explore and discover who they are rather than whom they are supposed to be.  This is done by creating imperfect projects and learning how to DIG Deep.
