216 – Rising Strong

Adventures in the Physics of Vulnerability
Brené Brown

Research has shown that fully owning our stories of our most significant stumbles and falls can help us take our life narratives in empowering new directions. This workshop will introduce you to The Rising Strong Process, an approach to turning toward the pain of our setbacks, rather than disowning our hurt, as the first step in discovering a liberating new way to live, love, parent, and lead. It focuses on the importance of values, acceptance, authentic emotion, mindfulness, and courage in illuminating the path toward wholeheartedness. In this workshop, you’ll explore the three foundations of this process:

  • The Reckoning – How to recognize emotion and get curious about the connection between our feelings and how we think and behave
  • The Rumble – How to get honest about our stories and then challenge our confabulations and self-delusions about the narratives we create for ourselves
  • The Revolution – How to write a new, braver story based on our key learnings from our Rumble to change how we engage with the world
