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.'

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!

Real, Raw & Powerful

Brené Brown’s words resonate so strongly with me & I’m devastated each time I finish a book!!! She has taught me to be proud of the fact that I am brave & I do step into the wilderness, mostly alone & that’s self discovery right there!

A book I will keep and reread many times

This was the first book I read by Bene Brown and I wasn’t sure what to expect but I read with an open mind. I’m so glad I picked it up. Now I will look for more by Bene Brown. Thank you.

Life Changing!

I cried as this book finished because I felt I’d been mentored by God, and didn’t want it to end. This book is empowering and to have it narrated by Brené herself is so fantastic!!

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.

Enlightening

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

As always, Brene is awesome

Incredible story of Brene's youth change my view of her and her topics, it's amazing that she shared such personal and vulnerable story with everyone. I plan to also read the book to be able to process it all at slower pace.

Another life changer from Brené Brown

If you have read any other books by Brené Brown, you already know what to expect – a captivating blend of 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.
