What do we have to be afraid of and who is to blame?

There is NO VOLUME until minute 14. So just go straight to minute 14. The picture went out for me too, but you can listen to the wonderful talk anyway.

Her message today in a nutshell:

Our capacity for whole-heartedness can never be greater than our willingness to have our heart broken. 

She brings up new issues. In particular: what do we have to be afraid about and who is to blame? Good stuff to think about as usual.


Dr Brené Brown has spent the past twelve years carrying out ground-breaking research into vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.

A best-selling author and award-winning educator, Dr Brown’s books and talks have been hugely influential in tackling the myth that vulnerability is a weakness.

She argues that it is only by embracing vulnerability and imperfection that we can live life with courage and authenticity. Recognising and acting on this insight has the power to transform the way we engage in our families, organisations, schools and communities.
