In her latest book, Rising Strong, Brené refers to a curriculum she created to help people dig deeper into the implications of her research and apply those findings to their life. She did some extensive training to certify qualified helping professionals to carry out that training in special events and workshops. The Daring Way event (October 9-10) is THAT event. My friend Rich Gantenbein, has been certified to present this workshop and will be the one leading our event.
I mention this because we have heard from a number of people that the response they are getting from friends is that people love Brené and her work but are reluctant to sign up for this event because they are afraid it is going to be too...churchy.
Here is what I want people to know:
- I get that and I'm sorry people have had that experience in other churches.
- I hate when that happens and we would never do that.
- Even if we wanted to do that (and we don't), Brené would never tolerate the use of this material in that fashion.
The Daring Way materials are carefully crafted and tightly controlled. Even the advertising of our event had to be reviewed and approved. Anyone coming to The Daring Way should know this is Brene's material and it will be presented as Brené intended it. Rich will be presenting the same workshop the following week for a school district.
