The Daring Way™ curriculum focuses on:

  • Shame work

Testimonials from the Rising Ever Upward Tour 2017....

Doing the Rising Strong workshop with Justine has been a life changing event for me. Not only did I heal trauma from an event in my past, but I learned new skills that will help me every day going forward. I am so glad that I took this time for myself and so grateful for this work. Jump in, you will thank yourself later!

Participating in Rising Ever Upward with Justine truly allowed me to gain new perspective on the trials of life. We all fall but I always felt I was missing the mark on how to properly process the “what comes next” component of living through the hard times. After completing this workshop, not only have I processed my falls, I’ve owned them and am now completely rewriting my story. I never thought, in a million years, I would ever be so thankful for the trials of life! That’s what this workshop with Justine does, makes you thankful for the bad and ugly because now I see how much good was born from the bad. I’m forever grateful to Justine for bringing me this work.

I recently completed the Rising Strong workshop in St. Louis with Justine and my heart is so full of gratitude toward her and the other women who were in the group with me. I walked in feeling alone and left feeling a support system surrounding me that I will not forget. I have gone through various forms of therapy off and on for a majority of my life but through all of those years, I never gained as much knowledge, support, guidance and love as I did in the two days spent doing this work with Justine. She does not just facilitate the group, she is a part of it. She does not just teach the curriculum, she lives it and believes in it with every cell of her body. Justine is compassionate, leads from personal experience, knowledgeable, funny and real. She accepts each and every person who sits in her sessions and knows how to make each one feel heard and understood. I am so thankful to have had this experience and know that the lives of so many others will be changed if they just take that first step and sign up! As Justine likes to say, “It’s not easy, but it is simple!”
IF you’ve ever struggled with feeling stuck, or on the cusp of something good or even great, but unable to take the next step, unsure of how to muster the courage to move forward;

IF you’ve struggled with shame or been frozen in place because of fear of what others will think, or fear of failure, or fear of rejection;

IF you’ve let your past define your present or limit your belief in your future;

IF you’ve ever played a tape in your head that says, “I’m not good enough, thin enough, smart enough, young enough, strong enough;

IF you want a new story for your life and you’d like to be the author of that story;

Then Justine Froelker’s Rising Strong Workshop is for you. It’s life-changing, transformative – the real deal.

Like millions of people, I’ve read Brene Brown’s work and listened to her renowned Ted Talks on shame, fear, courage, vulnerability and living a whole-hearted life. And each time I did, I thought: I would love a blueprint to implement those ideas and that research into my life. And then I quickly went back to my old ways of thinking

In this workshop, Justine takes Brene’s work and helps you apply it through a process that you can implement immediately to your own life, and then apply it over and over again. You literally write a new story.

Within days of finishing the workshop, I stepped out of my comfort zone and took action on my novel in progress. I pushed through the fear of what others will think and pulled the trigger on some things that will help me bring it to fruition. And I’ve implemented some simple (not easy, but simple) daily actions that are already changing how I interact with friends and family.

Those self-limiting tapes, that crap playing in my head, keeping me from chasing my dreams with all I’ve got and limiting my connection with others? They’re not completely silenced (yet), but now I know where the damn mute button is.

I was stuck.
I was struggling with shame more than I would like to admit.
I always wondered what people thought of me and what they said behind my back.
I was afraid of rejection and terrified of being a failure.
I had a constant record playing in my head that was stuck on “you’re not good enough”, “you’re not as smart as the other students”, “you aren’t as pretty as the other girls”.... “you’re not _______ enough”!
I wanted to break the damn record but was scared what would be there in its place.

Now... I am still scared BUT I am BRAVE at the same time. I am brace enough to step out of my comfort zone and I have realized that I am the one that writes the ending to my story... not my shame, not my past, not those repeating thoughts in my head.

This is all thanks to Justine!!

I learned about Brené’s work through Justine earlier this year when joining her network marketing team.
So I knew a little about the research and I watched the TED talks that Brené did before I attended the workshop in St. Louis.

I had no idea what I was walking into. But boy, am I glad I did!!

In The Rising Ever Upward Workshop you challenge a fall down moment in your life. You challenge the story that you are telling yourself about in that moment. You learn all the things that you need to do to change your thinking about that moment. And the best part? You learn to write a new story!
Then you apply the same work to other moments in your life!

There is still a lot of work to be done on my part, every single day....but because of Justine, I have the tools and the language to rewrite my story and when in a situation where shame is taking over me, to ask myself: “is this the real story/situation or is this the story I am telling myself?”

Justine is authentic, non-judgmental, funny, really knows her Brené work, and she is able to help teach you to rewrite the ending to your story by being vulnerable about her own story.
Within days of finishing the workshop, I was able to apply some of the work in my daily life.
This work is for everyone. Justine makes it simple. It isn’t easy, but it is so damn worth it!

What an incredible 2 days I’ve had, full of eye-opening moments of being completely open and vulnerable, good food, and making life-long friends!

I’ve learned that we all have our own issues, and that we’re all screwed up a little bit in our own way, whether that is something from our past, or something that we are currently dealing with. I just spent two of the best days of my life with a couple of friends, and making new friends I met this week, learning a lot about myself and what I can do to let go of past hurts, guilt, shame, and worrying about perfection.

Unless you’re being open and completely vulnerable every single day, then you’re not truly living the best life that you can. I want to live in alignment with my own authentic self, and I’m so thankful for my friend Justine, who gave up her time to share with us her passion as a Daring Way Facilitator. I knew I would learn a little bit more about myself, but I had no idea how truly life-changing these last couple of days would be for me. I dug really deep to bring up issues and feelings I had buried deep down for a lot of years, and the work that she does is absolutely incredible!!

Brené Brown’s work is so amazing and I am thankful that my gut feeling led me to sign up for this workshop! It’s opened my eyes to a pretty incredible future of knowing that I am enough, and that I need to stop being so hard on myself! People-pleasing, grief, hatred, loss, etc., can suck the life right out of you and I’m thankful that I feel like I am emerging into a new life full of hope, renewed love, dreams, and letting go of the things that have been holding me back.

I honestly can’t say enough about Justine and the work that she does!!! If you’re ready to let go of things that are holding you back, letting go of anger, feelings of loss and grief, or simply just want to live life the the way you’ve imagined, I highly encourage you to look into these workshops! They are amazing and my heart is completely full of gratitude for the changes I’m going to see in myself. Love you lady!!! Thank you a million times for pouring into us and helping us to see ourselves in a different light. I will rise strong!!!
Wow, where do I even start. I went into Justine’s intensive course thinking I would gain some confidence and a few tools to help me with past hurts. Immediately on day one I realized it would be so much more than that. What I really learned was how I respond to hurt, how to put words to the emotions that come with that hurt, how to rumble with those emotions and allow myself to feel them and how to write a new story to move forward from that hurt. For me the part that was the most invaluable was that I saw in every step how to teach my kids to apply each of those things. I am excited to teach them how to process their emotions in a healthy way as children so that they don’t have to wait until they are adults to learn it. Hopefully from that, they can grow and become more well-rounded adults. I look forward to reading more of Brene’s books so I can continue this work in mine and my families lives.
