Vulnerability is the core, the heart, the centre of meaningful human experiences…. It is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path. ~Brené Brown
As a Community that commits itself to Availability and intentional, deliberate Vulnerability, we have been thankful to discover the work of Brené Brown who writes about vulnerability with great humanity, wisdom and humour. Drawing on her insights and on those of the Northumbria Community, we’ll use reflection, discussion and artistic play to begin dismantling the walls of fear or shame that keep us hidden from ourselves and from others. We explore this calling: to let ourselves be seen and live full, whole-hearted lives.
