Being vulnerable about vulnerability: Q&A with Brené Brown | TED Blog

Being vulnerable about vulnerability: Q&A with Brené Brown | TED Blog | Mindfulness for Everyday Living | Scoop.it
At the end of 2010, a reseacher named Brené Brown gave a talk at her local TEDx event, TEDxHouston. That talk, "The Power of Vulnerability," has since become a web-video phenomenon -- viewed and shared by millions of people. When we invited Dr. Brown to speak at TED2012, she shared the impact her new fame has had on her own life. Before she spoke, our own Roxanne Hai sat down with Dr. Brown to ask her a few questions about the nature of vulnerability.
Brenda Bentley's insight:

vulnerability is at the core of our learning to life with mindfulness awareness and balance.

Emma Gordon's curator insight, January 2, 5:43 AM

Dr Goldstein makes some interesting points. She recognises that mindfulness beings with intention, and that mindfulness needs to be genuine, and not embraced just to be seen as being mindful. Both very insightful points.

Brenda Bentley's insight:

Excellent article that appreciates the darker side of the holidays for some. "And alongside our wish and need to come together to celebrate with family and friends are equally strong urges to isolate and withdraw from the season.
