Vulnerability and Shame: we all know them

I’ve just returned from a spectacular 8 day retreat/workshop – of which I’m sure I will write more another time. In the next few days, I have to focus on getting ready to be away from London for a year – splitting my time between Chicago and San Cristobal de las Casas (Chiapas, Mexico). I’m taking the liberty this week (and to make up for no post last week – I was totally offline) of allowing someone else to do the ‘talking.’ 

Brené Brown has two amazing, entwined Ted Talks – one on vulnerability and one on shame.  They are reminders of something we all share as human beings – but rarely talk about and often try and hide. Yet, the more we can see what we have in common – particularly with respect to areas of life that we try to keep secret – the more likely we are to be able to create and grow together – wherever we are and whoever we are. I’m delighted to share her talks below – on the off chance that you have not already listened to/seen them.

The Power of Vulnerability

Listening to Shame

I listen to Brené and my heart opens. I have much gratitude for her courage, her humour, her passion and her ability to articulate beautifully the wisdom of the human spirit.
