The Daring Way™

Art & Play Founder Cheryl Childers is a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF).  She applies this work to individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders, in clinical, educational, and professional settings.

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. Daring Way 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. 

The philosophy behind much of The Daring Way™ work is encapsulated in Dr. Brené Brown’s book Rising Strong. This book owns the fact that living a brave life is not easy. Sometimes we will fall. That’s when we must learn to get back up, own our stories of struggle, and give ourselves the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can, in fact, be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
