What previous participants are saying about THE DARING WAY™:

“The Daring Way™ group was life changing. I have a renewed hope and energy as I look toward further personal growth.”

“This group helped me make breakthroughs and changes that I have been trying to get to for years.  Brené Brown’s work on shame and authenticity has helped me see things about myself I don’t think I ever could have on my own, and Cheryl Childers is a compassionate and committed steward of the process, which has its rough patches. I highly recommend this group to anyone who feels they are stuck on a problem, or need a jolt out of a rut. It was good hard work, and it was actually really fun at the same time.”

“The Daring Way™ group has given me practical tools to understand where my issues came from and how to handle ongoing difficult situations.  The skills from this group are grounded rather than theoretical, which has made it easier to apply what I have learned to my everyday life.”

“The work in this group has given me a context for understanding why I react the way I do in certain difficult situations, as well as tools and ideas to help me change my responses for the better.”

“I feel more calm and centered since attending the Daring Waygroup. It was really helpful to have time set aside each week for personal growth and reflection, and I enjoyed meeting other group members and connecting with them.”

As a result of attending, one participant stated she was able to better access “Bravery, more self-awareness, tools to handle the tough stuff in life.”

“This was an invaluable experience to me, worth every dime!”
