Show Up and Let Yourself be Seen
Is vulnerability the same as weakness? “In our culture,” teaches Dr. Brené Brown, “we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.” On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
The Power of Vulnerability is a very personal project for me,” Brené explains. “This is the first place that all of my work comes together. This audio course draws from all three of my books - it’s the culmination of everything I’ve learned over the past twelve years. I'm very excited to weave it all into a truly comprehensive form that shows what these findings and insights can mean in our lives.”
Guidance and Insights for Wholehearted Living
Over the past twelve years, Dr. Brené Brown has interviewed hundreds of people as part of an ongoing study of vulnerability. “The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love,” explains Dr. Brown. When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense -and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability.
“In my research,” Dr. Brown says, “the word I use to describe people who can live from a place of vulnerability is wholehearted.” Being wholehearted is a practice—one that we can choose to cultivate through empathy, gratitude, and awareness of our vulnerability armor. Join this engaging and heartfelt teacher on The Power of Vulnerability as she offers profound insights on leaning into the full spectrum of emotions—so we can show up, let ourselves be seen, and truly be all in.

Der Inhalt ist unfassbar wertvoll

Ich bin durch eine Freundin auf Brene Brown aufmerksam geworden und habe mir Ihre diversen Videos auf YouTube angeschaut. Ich kann mich in fast allen Aussagen wiederfinden. Ihre sehr sympathische Art über ihre eigenen Makel zu sprechen, hat mir das ein oder andere Lächeln über die Lippen gebracht, da man automatisch mitfühlt. Ich schätze ihre Art Dinge zu erklären, gesprächstempo und Stimme sind sehr angenehm. Da das Hörbuch offensichtlich bei einem Seminar aufgenommen wurde, kann man die Reaktionen der Teilnehmer nicht sehen und muss daher manchmal seine Phantasie nutzen. Gewisse Inhalte und Beispiele aus ihren Vorträgen wiederholt sie in diesem Hörbuch. Es geht um unangenehme Themen wie Scham, Verletzlichkeit, Mitleid vs. Mitgefühl usw. und welche Chancen hinter diesen unangenehmen Gefühlen liegen. Das Hörbuch ist keine to do Liste um ein besserer Mensch zu werden, lässt uns jedoch über unser eigenes Verhalten und unser Verhalten gegenüber anderen nachdenken. Viel zu oft verstecken wir uns hinter Fassaden. Dabei haben wir doch gar nichts zu verlieren und so viel zu gewinnen. Ich kann dieses Buch wärmstens empfehlen
