Brene Brown, Daring Greatly, December 13-19

Dr. Brene Brown has done research on topics no one wants to discuss, shame and vulnerability. Yet it is through these human experiences that we find the courage to “dare greatly” and become “wholehearted.” She has been featured on TED, The Power of Vulnerability, and Listening to Shame.   She is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Daring Greatly.   In this candid conversation she weaves her own experience with her research and thus inspires us all to live courageous lives.

  1. This was really good! Shame has been a major part of my life, and at times a heavy burden, and at others, a useful manipulative device.
    I had a Chinese acquaintance who said she was amazed that Americans talked so little about shame.

  2. Over a decade ago the pediatric staff at Wake-Med Children’s Hospital in Raleigh NC realized that children diagnosed with cancer all had a common question, “What did I do wrong?” Wake-Med now pro-actively tell these children that it is not something they did. Shame is common to all of us, as was reported on your program. I believe that our primitive or developing brain has recorded, in some form, the trauma of our birth. And the question “What did I do wrong, to be thrown from a warm, quiet, nurturing environment to a cold, noisy, harsh environment.” is our common question. The ancient Hebrew tribe understood this question. And they explained it in a metaphor of Adam, Eve, an apple and a snake. And they leveraged it into an effective tool using shame, guilt and original sin.
