Shame, Vulnerability, and Authenticity. Join us for this 8-week study on the wisdom and work of Brené Brown including a 6-week book study on The Gifts of Imperfection and group viewing of her landmark TED Talk and Brené Brown: Call To Courage.
We will journey through her profound work together through discussion, journaling, and exploring her faith through short video’s from The Work of the People. For our study we will use the upcoming 10th anniversary edition of The Gifts of Imperfection released September 8th, 2020. Suggested donation $25 or donate $40 by September 18th and receive a hardcover copy of the text (delivered to your doorstep if you live in Lincoln). No reading for the first meeting and we will read approximately 30 pages a week. Last meeting will be 2hrs as we watch Brené Brown: Call to Courage. See book summary below.
In hardcover for the first time, this tenth-anniversary edition of the game-changing #1 New York Times bestseller features a new foreword and brand-new tools to make the work your own.
For over a decade, Brené Brown has found a special place in our hearts as a gifted mapmaker and a fellow traveler. She is both a social scientist and a kitchen-table friend whom you can always count on to tell the truth, make you laugh, and, on occasion, cry with you. And what’s now become a movement all started with The Gifts of Imperfection, which has sold more than two million copies in thirty-five different languages across the globe.
What transforms this book from words on a page to effective daily practices are the ten guideposts to wholehearted living. The guideposts not only help us understand the practices that will allow us to change our lives and families, they also walk us through the unattainable and sabotaging expectations that get in the way.
Brené writes, “This book is an invitation to join a wholehearted revolution. A small, quiet, grassroots movement that starts with each of us saying, ‘My story matters because I matter.’ Revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance.”
