The Daring Way™ Workshop

Do you want to get to know yourself better,
be braver and be more courageous in your life?

Are you curious about discovering what holds
you back from creating the life you want? 

Do you want to learn how to practice self love,
self compassion and develop your self confidence?

If you are saying yes to any of the above,
this workshop is for you.

The overall aim of the The Daring Way™ Workshop is to support you to ‘dare greatly’ in your life. The material that you will look at is part of the Daring Way™ Curriculum based on Brené Brown’s research material.

This workshop is based on a psycho-educational, experiential curriculum, held in a safe, confidential environment. It is not intended to be therapy or counselling. Often The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ work can touch us deeply and so you may wish to ensure that you have formal or informal support available to you if you feel you need to process feelings or become overwhelmed with the work.  Feel free to reach out if you want to discuss this before the workshop and I will be happy to explore further with you.








Through the workshop, we will:

  • Explore your ‘Arena’ and the ‘seats in the arena’ – who sits in your support section and critic section and where do you look first?
  • Explore the physiology of shame
  • Explore arena anthems and mantras to help build courage
  • Understanding how we ‘armour’ up to protect ourselves
  • Create your authenticity mantra to celebrate you work as a courageous coach
  • Explore how you want to live bravely 
  • Understand the Daring Way™ model
  • Explore the guideposts for wholehearted living
  • Explore the myths of vulnerability and your own personal ‘flavour’ of vulnerability.

A Message from Marie Quigley, Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator

This powerful work supported me to accept and appreciate all the various parts of me, the good and the bad, that come together to make me the whole person I am today. Though my personal explorations I empowered myself to dare greatly in my love, work and play.  Most importantly it transformed my relationship with myself.  I'm excited to share this work with you.

Participant Praise

If there is an opportunity to take The Daring Way ™ workshop with Marie then I highly recommend grasping it with two hands. Marie’s delivery of Brené Brown’s work on tough topic's around shame, vulnerability, perfectionism and empathy was stretching, full of learning, fun and powerful. This was achieved with a perfect blend of Marie’s insight, knowledge and support, Brené’s research and video’s to reinforce this and compelling, creative exercises. I realise now that it’s taken my personal growth to new levels of understanding and why I choose to live in alignment with my values. It cemented so many cracks in my deeper level of understanding about myself. When I step up, show up, and have the courage to be vulnerable I feel alive.

Clare Hadley, Participant November 2016

Doing this workshop is like stepping out of the woods and into the sunshine. At first it is blinding but as I adjusted and walked with Marie down the path of vulnerability into the arena of life, I understood finally what it is like to truly feel like I am living, feeling and being. This course opens up a whole gamut of awareness and emotions that will enhance and colour your life, hopefully forever. I am grateful and I am empowered.

What an amazing, and cleverly put together workshop! All learned on the first day came nicely together on the second day, and much more than that! It opened up a whole new world to me and the way I now look at the emotion of shame and how this is linked with my values. Thank you so much Marie, for finally being able to put my finger on things which I were not able to do so before your workshop. You’re an amazing woman, walking alongside me on my journey of self-discovery!

Thank you Marie Quigley for sharing your learnings on The Daring Way ™. I went into this workshop with the intention of learning how to support my clients further but came out of it with so much awareness about myself and what it really means to be Courageous and Vulnerable. Marie tackles heavy topics such as Shame and Guilt effortlessly, brings in relevant exercises to truly anchor the learnings and ensures that everyone participates and is heard. The workshop is structured in a way that you learn as much from the participants than you do from the programme itself and there is such power being in being in a room with other like minded people who have a made a commitment to live their best life. Marie this has been enlightening and I am ready for my arena. I eagerly await part two!

Yasmeen Hasan, November 2016 Participant

Thank you Marie and to the wonderful ladies in the Daring Way ™ workshop. The vulnerable stories and powerful exercises helped me to understand how being human, means to embrace the joy and those moments that may be shameful, painful or scary. To treat myself with kindness and empathy as I step into my courage, to be my true imperfect self and create the life I want. The awareness is just starting to unfold and I feel like there is so much space that was never there before! Marie , I am so grateful to you for facilitating this workshop, sharing what you have learnt and lived to support me to know that I am enough! I feel on purpose!
