Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Braving the Wilderness, written and read by Brené Brown.

'True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.' Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarisation. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping out a clear path to true belonging.

Brown argues that what we're experiencing today is a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, 'True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in both being a part of something, and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that's rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it's easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it's a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It's a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.' Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness.

Brown writes, 'The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it's the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.'

as usual, I love her work and although I do live mostly in alignment with it, this time I got a massive aha moments, around the experience of solitude for example.

Great audiobook with some downsides

Braving the Wilderness is an engaging, passionate, and well structured book that took me by surprise. I didn't know anything about this book or the author when I grabbed this. What a great surprise.

This a book about connecting in healthy meaningful ways and belonging without trying too hard or expecting others to let us feel that we belong, to belong without belonging anywhere and everywhere, to belong to ourselves more and foremost.

According to Brown we all want to belong and connect, but doing so forgetting who we truly are, hiding who we are, faking who we are not, and not holding our ground or boundaries is not true belonging. True belonging it is not based on somebody's else accepting us as much as accepting ourselves and showing who we are, what we believe, and what we think even when we are surrounded by people or situations that are hostile to us and our survival instinct pushes us to conform, shut up or fake it up. Braving the wilderness demands from us to speak our minds, disclose what we believe, do not obscure what it really matters to us, and how we see or feel anything, no matter the consequences.

In Braving the Wilderness, Brown discusses spirituality, loneliness, aloneness, solitude, conflict, true belonging, stereotyping, compassion, connection, fear, hatred, pain, anger, BS, civility, boundaries, the difference between what we are and what we believe, and between fitting and belonging. And the good thing is that she does it with a lot of soul and in a very clear, understandable engaging way.

I enjoyed her comments on stereotyping and BStting, and on bringing civility back in fashion. However, one of the things that resonated the most with me was the BRAVING system, or seven rules to trust people, ourselves, and be trusted: 1/ Boundaries. 2/ Reliability. 3/ Accountability. 4/ Vault; kinda of my lips are sealed. 5/ Integrity. 6/ Non Judgement. 7/ Generosity in assumptions.

I also liked her quest to be clear about what she means by what she says. Some of the most important definitions she offers in the book are those of spirituality, braving, wilderness, true belonging and civility.

THE DOWNSIDES
> Me Me MeExtroversion biasBraving the wilderness is not enough Data per se is not serious research It might age soon < I would have rather focused on examples not related as much to the current political situation in the US, as that focus will age the book quickly. On the other hand, she is braving the wilderness and speaking her truth, so bravo.

THE AUDIBLE EDITION
Braving the Wilderness is spoken in a straightforward way, very well structured and presented, so it is easy to follow even in audiobook format. Something that I don't take for granted. Brown is a wonderful speaker and reads her own book as if she was talking to you, not following something that has already been written. She has a mix of passion and softness, a great voice tone and inflections, and a very good reading pace, so the result is an engaging discourse, which makes listening to this book a truly enjoyable experience. This is one of those audiobooks that one wants to listen to more than once, or even purchase the hard-copy or Kindle book to re-read it. Most enjoyable!

Not fitting in, belonging

Sometimes you can have people all around you and feel completely lonely. Standing up for compassion, empathy, demonstrating reason, rational thought and understanding can actually make you feel alone. Sometimes feeling compelled to “speak truth to bullshit” while among friends can make you feel like you lost some.

If one or some of these feel true to you. Brene Brown’s book is possibly for you.

Don’t expect a smooth ride, don’t expect not to be challenged! No, no, expect to remember, to rehash, to cringe and to cry, oh yes expect to cry from time to time.

This book is for those wanting to prepare themselves for or perhaps become more comfortable with “not belonging” anywhere, as Brene quotes.

It’s the second book I’ve read from Brene.
There will be many more read.

Thank you Brené

Best book of Berne Brown

Love this book. I think it is fully evolved and complete. It needs a very caring and a non judgemental mindset to read and understand.

This is the solution.

We live in difficult times. Standing up for what we believe in can result in backlash. Brené invites us to stand up and stand alone in a way that is confronting, and comforting at the same time. Practical ways to stand together in our unique courageous ways. A must read for any changemaker.

Excellent book!

Brene Brown provides compelling data that gave words and titles and context to much of my inner thoughts and inner struggles. Braving the wilderness is indeed a scary concept but listenimg to her confirmed that it is essential. Highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in being authentic and having community.

Brave and True and Timely!

My thanks to Brene for taking the road less travelled and paying the price. You are helping us all to take risks and follow God's Way to freedom, collectively and personally .... by loving our NEIGHBOUR as our SELF. And the only Way to have the power do that is to know God's love for ALL, by GRACE.

Enlightening

Not for the faint hearted. It challenges, inspires, and pushes you. And then it heals.

Good, but didnt resonate with me so much

i love Brene Browns work, my personal favorite is The Power of Vulnerability, I didnt feel that deeply touched by this book, just didnt experience that manu 'aha: moments. i think the maim reason is that The Power of Vulnerability is a series of lecturea rather than a narrated book and Brene Brown being an amazing speaker, it was the perfect combinatipn. yhis book felt a bit more constructed and repetitive

VALUABLE CORE MASSAGE, BUT READABLE VERSION PREFERED

This is the kind of book, in which you have to repeat quite a few passages several times. The pronunciation of the reader (=author) is not perfectly understandable for everyone. The main reason, however, is that the power of some phrases just requires you to be very concentrated in order to capture the meaning. That is when you want to hit the ‘repeat’ button. It is feasible on an ipad or iphone. Less on an ipod. But a book (or e-book) is better suited. The contents speaks to you when you know what the wilderness is from your own experience. I start to believe that we are not speaking small minorities, here. As she says: There is no badge for having been there.

Another life changer from Brené Brown

If you have read any other books by Brittnay Brown, you already know what to expect – a captivating blend research findings, stories and conclusions with the potential to change how you do life. Brené (yes, in my head we’re on first name terms. She’s my friend!) has become my favorite teacher and I am always saddened when I reach the end of her books. My life is better for having read her material, starting with “The Power of Vulnerability”, working forwards and backwards on the timeline of her publications. If B.B. wrote it - it’s gold.
