Virtual Courage & Coffee: Cultivating Self-Kindness with The Daring Venture Courage & Coffee Series: Cultivating Self-Kindness

For many of us, societal norms and social conditioning tell us that our worthiness comes from climbing the proverbial ladder, collecting material goods, and always hustling to do more and do better. This can be exhausting and detrimental to our well-being. If you ever feel like you’re not enough and always hustling for your worthiness, join us for an engaging workshop aimed at providing you with evidence-based research tools.  You will leave understanding how striving for greatness vs. perfection can bring peace and self-kindness to your life.


  • Raise awareness about our social conditioning (what are the messages that we hear) and how is it influencing our current well-being?

  • Learn evidence-based practices that help you foster self-kindness and allow yourself to be fully YOU.

  • Understand how striving for greatness vs. perfection can bring peace and self-kindness to your life (shift from external motivations to internal motivations).

  • Work with generous assumptions for yourself and others to build kindness skills.
