Brené Brown

“The Power of Vulnerability”


Our TED talk on May 13th features Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston discussing “The power of vulnerability”, in which she gives an in depth look at our ability to empathize, belong, and love. In a poignant, funny talk, Brené shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.

Brené has spent the past ten years studying vulnerability, courage, authenticity, and shame, and she’s now using that work to explore a concept that she calls Wholeheartedness. She poses the questions: How do we learn to embrace our vulnerabilities and imperfections so that we can engage in our lives from a place of authenticity and worthiness? How do we cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection that we need to recognize that we are enough – that we are worthy of love, belonging, and joy?

We hope you will join us to learn her insight to these questions.
