In our culture, vulnerability has become synonymous with weakness. Yet Dr. Brené Brown has discovered through 12 years of research that vulnerability is not weakness at all, but is our strongest connection to our humanity and to each other. "Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, empathy, creativity, and authenticity-the experiences that bring meaning to our lives," teaches Dr. Brown. On The Power of Vulnerability, she offers a breakthrough course on cultivating vulnerability as a means for leaning into our full spectrum of emotions-the dark and the light. Join her for a transformative examination of how we feel, think, and behave-so that we may show up, let ourselves be seen, and be all in.
