Research on Vulnerability

Posted November 19, 2010 in Spiritual Psychology

You may have already seen this: Brene Brown speaks at TED about her research on vulnerability. It has gone viral and taken over the internet. Check it out. There are worse things you could do with 20 minutes: Like drink 3 beers and eat a banana nut muffin.


What Brene has discovered through her research is what I have also discovered in working with clients: The only thing that separates us from the feeling of worthiness is the belief that we are not worthy. Also, if we do not allow ourselves the courage to feel pain, we also cut ourselves off from the feelings of joy. If you haven’t already, watch this groundbreaking TED talk.
