If you seek a life lived more authentically...
If shame keeps you from living and loving fully...
If you need help with building shame resilience and courage practices...
If you want to learn how to live more bravely in the arenas of your life...
Of if you simply want to learn how to live, love, parent and lead more wholeheartedly and with courage...
The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ work is for you.
The method was developed to help men, women and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen and live braver lives. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing a courage practice that transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational and professional settings and is suitable for work with individuals, couples families, work teams and organization leaders. Further information is available at www.thedaringway.com or learn more about our intensives!
In either the workshop or the intensive Justine walks alongside you through The Daring Way™ and/or Rising Strong™ curriculum to help build shame resilience skills, courage and wholehearted living.
The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ are two separate curriculum that work very much in conjunction or independently of one another. It does not matter which a client begins with or even if you only choose to do one.
The Daring Way™ curriculum is focused on language, empathy and in depth shame work.
Whereas the Rising Strong™ curriculum also focuses on shame and also guides the participant through a specific struggle, fall or failure to write a new ending.

It is a journey worth the work!

Testimonials for Justine's RISING Ever Upward Intensive
"I was honored to be a participant in Justine Froelker’s inaugural Rising Strong workshop. I had just completed the Daring Way program, so it was a perfect time to do the Rising Strong exploration. The workshop was great – Justine had carefully planned an enlightening and informative program that walked our group through Brene Brown’s Rising Strong work, which goes a lot deeper than her book. I learned so much about myself and how to pick myself up after any inevitable falls, lessons that will stay with me the rest of my life. Thanks to Justine for offering this." ~ Juli
"Completing Justine's Rising Strong Intensive has had a huge impact on my life. I enrolled in the first group dedicated specifically to infertility. The work was deeply challenging and incredibly transformational. I spoke words from the darkest parts of my heart, about wounds that had been defeating me for far too long. Bringing them into the light and examining them through the Rising Strong curriculum took away their power! I unearthed toxic thoughts, and they were met with the unwavering acceptance and support of Justine and my group. The brave and wonderful women with whom I completed the intensive will always feel like soul sisters to me. We stay in touch and support each other. Each of us came from such different places in the infertility journey, but our pain was all the same. We shed judgement, fear, and shame. I can't put into words the beauty and bravery that I witnessed in that circle. It's an experience that I wish for everyone fighting infertility to have. I'm forever thankful that I took a step out of that dark, lonely place in my journey. I'm in the daily process of reclaiming myself and bringing back to life the happy and daring women I once was, but now I'm far stronger."
"I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to participate in the recent Rising Strong Intensive for infertility and loss. Over the recent year, I have managed to keep myself busy enough to avoid really thinking through what I have gone through, and what needs to happen for me to start healing and to "get unstuck." This weekend was such a gift to myself, in that I was able to devote the time I needed to really make some progress, surrounded by kind, compassionate, and truly brave women. I lost track of all of the epiphanies I had about myself, my relationships and life in general. However, the best part, by far, was meeting and connecting with four amazing women. I have never felt so wholly understood, accepted and validated as I did with this group. The investment is completely worth the results to continue your path of healing and Rising Strong! Thank you!"
I jumped at the chance to do the rising strong intensive immediately without much consideration. After I signed up I started questioning whether or not it would be worth the time and money – I mean, I’d already read the book, Justine had been working with me for a couple of years… How much more would I get out of this? Well, my skepticism couldn’t have been more wrong. I was shocked by what I uncovered and how often I use the tools now. Just reading the book is not the same – it is fabulous, but none of the concepts became a practice for me. Doing this without someone (Justine) willing to ask the really tough questions is not the same – we let ourselves off the hook too easily; Justine’s guidance helps you push a little further. Doing it without the rest of the group is not the same – they nod in agreement and understanding and they make you feel less alone in the struggle. So, emphatically – yes! It was so worth it. I cannot imagine anyone who wouldn’t benefit from this work.~Meaghan
