DARING WAY™ GROUP PROGRAMS

Helping you recover from stress, anxiety and perfectionism,

so you can live a wholehearted,
free and courageous life.

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.

One thing I know for certain is that you are inherently worthy and have greatness within you.

If that statement doesn’t feel true to you right now, that’s okay.
I promise you it will soon.

Hi, I’m Julia Oh, your Daring Way™ Group Facilitator.

One of the most profound truths I have discovered, after decades of work as a therapist and coach for hundreds of clients, is that there is nothing for you to change or fix. You are worthy and whole, just as you are. But you can learn skills to continue growing in areas you want to develop in.

Whatever your goals may be, and no matter what your story is, taking a wholehearted journey from a place of worthiness will be a game-changer. It is not a quick fix, but a transformative experience, and you will never be the same again.

What does it mean to live wholeheartedly?

Brené Brown’s 
Daring Way™ Program

As a Certified Daring Way Facilitator, I offer you the next best thing to working with Brené herself! Brené has spent decades studying the topics of courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. Whether you have read all her books, or are new to her work, you can benefit from our Daring Way™ program. It is one thing to read a book and another to have the support, accountability and insight from a trained coach and psychotherapist to really understand, practice and embody the teachings. This is what I offer.

In our Brené Brown’s Daring Way™ program you will be taken through a 1-month experience exploring one of Brené Brown’s three tracks of your choice – The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly or Rising Strong. You can also choose to do all three over a 3-month period should you choose. We would encourage you to pick the track which aligns most with what you need to learn in this moment.

Which Pathway Will You Pick?

The Gifts of Imperfection Pathway

Perfect for you if, like many of us, you’ve struggled with self-acceptance and the relationship you have with yourself. We’ll explore what our perceived flaws and imperfections have to teach us and how we can embrace ALL the parts of ourselves to live more wholehearted. Are there parts of yourself you struggle to accept?

The Rising Strong Pathway

Perfect for you if you have experienced a setback in life and would like to learn how to rise up and bounce back from it. In this phase, we go deep into our painful and uncomfortable moments, work through our emotions and hold ourselves accountable to get up and grow from the past as we move into the future. Do you have an experience that you don’t want to define your future?

The Daring Greatly Pathway

Perfect for you if there are things you yearn to do with your life, but you let fear get in your way. Inspired by the vulnerability hangover Brené experienced after having her now famous Ted Talk on the Power of Vulnerability, the book explores the idea of being ‘all in’ in your life- even if it’s scary. Where do you need to dare greatly with your life?

The Gifts of Imperfection Pathway

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we’ll ever do.

– Dr Brené Brown

Some of the topics we’ll explore:

  • How to carry courage, compassion and connection in your heart while on your coaching journey and beyond.
  • How to practice courage by being willing to be vulnerable, imperfect and set boundaries.
  • How to talk to yourself the same way you talk to the people you love.
  • How to lean in and feel it all rather than numbing and feeling powerless.
  • How to practice gratitude to find joy.
  • How to cultivate your intuition by listening to yourself.
  • How you are a creative being and can heal your creative wounds.
  • How to honor your basic need for play and rest.
  • How to heal with calm and let go of anxiety.
  • How to own your superpowers and your kryptonite.
  • How to take off your emotional straightjacket.

The Rising Strong Pathway

‘‘When you deny the story, it owns you. When you own the story, you get to write the ending.’

– Dr Brené Brown

Some of the topics we’ll explore:

  • How understanding your value will help you light your way forward in the dark. What behaviors do you have which support and protect your values and what behaviors serve as red flags that you’ve walked away from your own light.
  • How to own our own stories we make up around our struggle, challenge our assumptions of what is true and re-write our endings.
  • How to cultivate curiosity around our emotions, where they stem from and what gets us emotionally hooked.
  • The unproductive ways we “manage” or discharge emotion when we are trying to avoid feeling it, also known as “offloading hurt”.
  • Understanding vulnerability — the myths you believe about it and where you picked them up.
  • Rumbling with shame – the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that what we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging.
    Working through feelings of loss and longing.
  • Understanding how you manage anxiety – whether you are over-functioning or under-functioning.

The Daring Greatly Pathway

‘‘It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

– Theodore Roosevelt

Some of the topics we’ll explore:

  • 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.
  • Your unwanted identities and triggers.
