In this incredibly life-changing lecture, Dr.Brené Brown helps people to see the beauty that exists in vulnerability.
Vulnerability is different from weakness. We often associate vulnerability with feelings we don’t want to experience, such as fear, shame and uncertainty. Yet we too often forget that vulnerability is also the source of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love; and that when we dare to let down our guard, we open ourselves to new experiences that bring purpose and significance to our lives.

Since the beginning of her research into vulnerability, Dr Brené Brown found that we try to ward off disappointment with a shield of cynical detachment, disarm shame with numbness, and shut off our willingness to love. When we become aware that we’re falling into certain patterns, she teaches, then we begin to become conscious that we’re sacrificing something in the name of self defense -and how much richer we become when we open ourselves up to vulnerability.
“In ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ Dr. Brené Brown shows that vulnerability isn’t weakness at all; it’s actually our best indicator of courage. “

In her studies, Dr. Brown explains, “I use the term wholeheartedness to describe people who can thrive from a place of vulnerability.” Wholeheartedness is a practice—a way of being that we can choose to develop through empathy, gratitude, awareness of our vulnerability armor, and so on. Join this engaging and heartwarming teacher on “The Power of Vulnerability” as she offers profound insights into learning to lean into the full spectrum of human emotion – so we can show up, be seen, and really be all in.
