Brene´ Brown is an amazing author, story-teller and researcher. I highly encourage you to watch her TEDex talks. They are incredible and life changing.

I am a member of the Senior Faculty with the Daring Way. I use her work with my individual clients and in group. Shame is the key to many of the issues we struggle with on a daily basis.

Shame is the one problem we all have and no one wants to talk about it.  That’s the way shame likes it.  Keep quiet, don’t talk about it, don’t reach out and connect and for goodness sake please be very critical and judgmental.   This is how shame grows.

The bad news is that we all have shame.   Research has proven that it is a universal experience.  The good news is that when we practice empathy, love, compassion and refrain from judgment we can tame the monster and quiet it’s voice.  By reaching out to someone you trust and showing your vulnerable and authentic self, you will find that shame doesn’t like that so much and will fade away into the background.

Reach out to me if you are interested in exploring more of Brene's work. It will change your life. I know, it has changed my life in many positive ways.
