Course objectives:

  • Recognize emotional armory and recognizing what makes us shut down—how we use perfectionism, numbing, and other tactics to avoid feeling vulnerable
  • Discussing the cultivation of shame resilience--the key to developing a sense of worth and belonging
  • Discussing the myths of vulnerability—common misconceptions about weakness, trust, and self-sufficiency
  • Defining vulnerability as the origin point for innovation, adaptability, accountability, and visionary leadership
  • Summarizing the 10 guideposts of wholehearted living—essential skills for living a life of courage, authenticity, and compassion

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 12 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 12 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.

Highlights:

  • Cultivating shame resilience—the key to developing a sense of worth and belonging
  • Vulnerability as the origin point for innovation, adaptability, accountability, and visionary leadership
  • Our emotional armory—how we use perfectionism, numbing, and other tactics to avoid feeling vulnerable
  • The myths of vulnerability—common misconceptions about weakness, trust, and self-sufficiency
  • Discovering your vulnerability armor—recognizing what makes us shut down, and how we can change
  • The 10 guideposts of wholehearted living—essential skills for becoming fully engaged in life
  • Six hours of stories, warm humor, and transformative insights for living a life of courage, authenticity, and compassion from Dr. Brené Brown

Very appreciative of all of Brene's work. I have listened repetitively to her descriptions of shame resilience and the guideposts of the wholehearted. So helpful.

Brown's CD set on the Power of Vulnerability is uncomfortable, sometimes funny, sometimes annoying because it means I have a lot of work to do, and absolutely spot on. I've learned a lot about myself listening to these CDs. Highly recommended.

Brene Brown's presentation on this CD set is outstanding. She makes me laugh & cry, she touches me deeply with her understanding & compassion, born so obviously of her own experiences. Her research is cutting edge. I just keep playing it over and over because there's so much to learn & to know. It's making a very real difference to my life. Wish I'd known it 40yrs ago, but then, it's never too late. Thankyou so much Brene. No-one better to bring this information into the global consciousness than you!

I have been listening to Sounds True tapes and CDs for many years, beginning with Carolyn Myss's "Energy Anatomy". The quality and scope of the material available on recordings is wonderful.
I first discovered Brene Brown when she narrated the little animated short on the difference between Empathy and Sympathy. I have listened to her Ted talks and to Power of Vulnerability three times and cannot thank her enough for this material. Three days ago I had one of the most shaming experiences of my life and Brene Brown and three of my friends, worthy of hearing my story, got me out of it. I was able to keep my perspective even from the bottom of the hole in the sidewalk and respond as an adult without running away, people pleasing or fighting shame with shame. Thank you Brene Brown, and Sounds True, for making her available to me, so that I could hear the message enough times to pull it in and use it.

I'm really disappointed as I am yet to listen to my purchase. I need to be a IT expert, or better than I am to work out how to access it. I read your help stuff. I have an iPhone. I did as suggested. I haven't been able to make it happen.

So, I don't think I'll be purchasing anything else again.

I'm sorry about whinging.

This is a fine self help tool which presents Dr. Browns "guide posts" from the book .... "The gift of Imperfections"... I use it personally while driving and I have recommended it to countless patients. This material is relevant, entertaining... and I believe that Dr. Brown's work will be fresh and meaningful for many decades.... I can hardly wait for what her next 20 years of work will bring to all of us in the mental heath field.

I enjoyed it and got value out of this program. But it is not deep and as substantial as some of the other programs that I have heard at Sounds-true. The teachings on vulnerability are valuable and it connects us to each other's humanity. Plus, I value the fact that she deals with how we tend to cover up the vulnerability with our armor. The CD's are energetic and have humor and are fun to listen to. I personally think that people who have families and involvement with family life will even appreciate this more. I live alone, a simple life and am not engaged in life at the family level.

The Power of Vulnerability by Brené Brown was such a find! I enjoy her sense of humour with a background of sincere study, whether about herself or others, she is very open in her professional approach to the subject. It is often that the 'being professional' makes it hard to be involved with the speaker as the subject can be removed from the heart at a distance from the real feeling. Brené has helped so much to touch those areas of really seeing and feeling that I am not alone, I have a real connection out there with so many others who experience vulnerability at a deep level. Thank you for keeping us well informed and up to date Sounds True!

after 25 years of recovery, finally someone writes to the greatest demon of wellness. the information Dr. Brene presents has unlocked the final 'gremlin' of serenity and peace.
shame, and perfectionism destoyed my last relationship. the best relationship of my life, that came unravelled due to shame, and perfectionism.
the cds are fun, articulate, and on the money. i have ecommended to my best friends.
Thanks for the gift!
