Event Details

The Gifts of Imperfection course, based on the bestselling book by Dr Brené Brown, is about learning to be wholehearted - which is to engage with the world from a place of worthiness. Our authentic journey is about moving from “What will people think?” to “I am imperfect and I am enough.”

This course is led by Ade Adeniji and Darren Brady, Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitators. The course is an opportunity to cultivate skills and practice the habits required to embody our authenticity day-by-day.

The course spans eight weeks and comprises of a 1 day in-person session and four fortnightly online hour sessions. The periods in between sessions is an opportunity to integrate and practice insights and tools from the course.

The Gifts of Imperfection course comprises 12 lessons:

Lesson One | Courage, Compassion, and Connection: Tools for the Wholehearted Journey

  • Learning intention: ‘I will carry courage, compassion, and connection in my heart while on this journey’

Lesson Two| Guidepost #1 – Cultivating Authenticity: Letting Go of What People Think

Lesson Nine | Guidepost #8 – Cultivating Calm and Stillness: Letting Go of Anxiety as a Lifestyle

  • Learning intention: ‘I want to heal with calm, so I will practice calm.’

  • Learning intention: ‘I will own my superpowers.’

Lesson Eleven | Guidepost #10 – Cultivating Laughter, Song, and Dance: Letting Go of Being Cool and “Always in Control”

Daring Europe

Ade Adeniji and Darren Brady are Certified Dare to Lead™️ and Daring Way™️ Facilitators. They facilitate Dare to Lead™️, Daring Greatly™️, Rising Strong™️ and Gifts of Imperfection™️ workshops, based on the research of Dr Brené Brown.

The workshops are designed for work with individuals, couples and families. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living.

 The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
