Description

Show Up and Let Yourself be Seen

Is vulnerability the same as weakness? “In our culture,” teaches Dr. Brené Brown, “we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.” On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

The Power of Vulnerability is a very personal project for me,” Brené explains. “This is the first place that all of my work comes together. This audio course draws from all three of my books - it’s the culmination of everything I’ve learned over the past twelve years. I'm very excited to weave it all into a truly comprehensive form that shows what these findings and insights can mean in our lives.”

Guidance and Insights for Wholehearted Living

Over the past twelve years, Dr. Brené Brown has interviewed hundreds of people as part of an ongoing study of vulnerability. “The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love,” explains Dr. Brown. When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense -and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability.

“In my research,” Dr. Brown says, “the word I use to describe people who can live from a place of vulnerability is wholehearted.” Being wholehearted is a practice—one that we can choose to cultivate through empathy, gratitude, and awareness of our vulnerability armor. Join this engaging and heartfelt teacher on The Power of Vulnerability as she offers profound insights on leaning into the full spectrum of emotions—so we can show up, let ourselves be seen, and truly be all in.

Great storytelling, funny, good tips, unscientific

I was in awe at the beginning finiding out how fun that speecher is. The storytelling is really great and captivates immediately. The author has definitely a good and fullfying research carrier. But these speeches are about a personal interpretation that made sense to the author. Shortly: shame is a dark friend; happy people defuse its dramatic influence appropriately by self awareness and self-indulgence.
Surprisingly for a doctor, no research is cited which should advise the listener to take the content as self-help tips.
After 4 hours the speecher starts repeating herself and making her point while talking about the new book. Yet it was worth listening for half of it at least.

Great for everyone!

My therapist suggested this read when I was having trouble finding compassion for selfish family and friends. This book changed my mindset in many ways especially with issues I believed I was doing great with. I bring up chapters from this audiobook to discuss in therapy and it has helped build on solutions and personal goals. Highly recommend!!

The audio makes all the difference.

If you could sum up The Power of Vulnerability in three words, what would they be?

Comforting, Insightful, Fun

Have you listened to any of Brené Brown’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't. I wish she were the narrator of all her audiobooks. I want to buy more of them, but I'm afraid to be disappointed!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Two things really struck me. The first was her assertion that we don't call shame "shame," and people want to avoid the subject. The second was her description of perfectionism as a "20-ton shield" we carry.

Any additional comments?

I don't think reading this in print would even compare to the listening experience. I'd hear it in my own voice - and this message is something that I needed to be "told."

Powerful, moving, and painful at times

This book has made such a meaningful impact on me and my life. I urge the listener to listen in small chunks then take the time to reflect. There were several moments that reduced me to tears.

Also, I am a 46 year old male attorney. The concepts Brene Brown talks about are universal.

I was initially disappointed that this was a live recording of Brene Brown teaching, but ended up loving the content!

Um wow

I am not entirely sure what to say about this audio book. I am still a little emotional after the end. Brene touches every sensitive nerve in my body.

I picked up this book because of what I do every day. I coach teams at work. I coach the tech geeks on how to work together. It struck me when I saw the title, that the way they trust me is by me showing vulnerability.

What I didn't realize, is all the places that this book would take me. The part about play struck such a nerve, that I ordered the book called play by Stuart Brown.

I love that this seems to be a recording of a seminar. It makes you feel like you were there because she speaks with full emotion. I will listen to this again and order daring greatly. And hope that I get to see brene speak in person someday.

Soothed my soul even better than Ben & Jerry's!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and ended it with a smile and realistically hopeful ways to calm the chaos in my life (and head). I CAN be the better person I've always wanted to be!
Loved loved loved the narration by the author, laughed when she laughed and at times teared up because I know very well what it's like to be lost in shame. Thank you, Dr. Brown, for showing me how to recognize and deal with that very counterproductive thought process. I live with major depression and generalized anxiety disorder and your words have helped me to feel better and more hopeful. HUGE accomplishment. HUGE.

Book for Everyone

The beginning of the audiobook starts off with a recording of the author's appearance on TED Talks. Instead of listening to it, watch the video so you can see her expressions and gestures (which adds to the humor in the story).

If you've ever made a mistake and beat yourself up for it, this book is for you. So essentially, this book is for everyone. Instead of complicating our lives and guarding our insecurities, we can learn to accept that we're all human, appreciate our courage and frailty, enjoy life more fully, and live more authentically.

A must listen to! For me anyway :)

What made the experience of listening to The Power of Vulnerability the most enjoyable?

This book as Brene Brown's other book has help me understand why things come to my mind as they do. Being a man that's not wired to think about feelings and not even talk about them! This with her other books has realy help me to take and not be afraid to say how I feel about what ever. Thanks so much to Brene Brown for your work! and please don't stop looking and doing what you love.

Gets real for real people - Thank you

What did you love best about The Power of Vulnerability?

Brene Brown explains vulnerability and demonstrates how vulnerability manifests in people. Then, she shares tools you can use NOW on how to grow and work with it instead of fighting it.

What did you like best about this story?

The tools shared are now in use with my daily living. Even deploying one tool at work has given me insight of how I was allowing others to affect me - demonstrating what's acceptable and what is not.

What about Brené Brown’s performance did you like?

Brene Brown comes across as "just one of us" and we are all in this boat together. It doesn't matter your economic status, family status, or anything else. Her stories were true and genuine - authentic! We are all human. I loved this about her presentation and demeanor. Most importantly, there was no condescension, just uplifting messages. Thank you!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and No. I think taking the book in chunks is better. This allows you to reflect on the message. AND, it was so good, I could sit one day and just listen. This is definitely in my replay library.

Any additional comments?

Thank you for this opportunity to listen to your messages and how to work with vulnerability in life. There were a lot of "aha" moments - and they say awareness is 90% of the journey. Thank you for sharing some tips and messages to help with the other 10% of the journey.

Wonderful!

I loved this talk. I have listened to, "The Gifts of Imperfection," "Daring Greatly," and her 2 hour talk on parenting. I think this talk is the best overall. If you only buy one of her downloads, I would buy this one. She covers all the topics in the other books. The format is great, Brene is a brilliant speaker. When you listen, it sounds like she is talking to you personally, not to a room full of people. (You can hear people laugh and clap, but the audio is recorded well and it is not annoying.) A great listen! One I will refer to many times when I need some guidance and an extra boost of confidence. Thanks Brene!

Präzise strukturiert, authentisch vorgetragen, research-getriebene Erkenntnisse. Wer sich unsicher ist, schaut erst ihren TED-Talk an.

Der Inhalt ist unfassbar wertvoll

Ich bin durch eine Freundin auf Brene Brown aufmerksam geworden und habe mir Ihre diversen Videos auf YouTube angeschaut. Ich kann mich in fast allen Aussagen wiederfinden. Ihre sehr sympathische Art über ihre eigenen Makel zu sprechen, hat mir das ein oder andere Lächeln über die Lippen gebracht, da man automatisch mitfühlt. Ich schätze ihre Art Dinge zu erklären, gesprächstempo und Stimme sind sehr angenehm. Da das Hörbuch offensichtlich bei einem Seminar aufgenommen wurde, kann man die Reaktionen der Teilnehmer nicht sehen und muss daher manchmal seine Phantasie nutzen. Gewisse Inhalte und Beispiele aus ihren Vorträgen wiederholt sie in diesem Hörbuch. Es geht um unangenehme Themen wie Scham, Verletzlichkeit, Mitleid vs. Mitgefühl usw. und welche Chancen hinter diesen unangenehmen Gefühlen liegen. Das Hörbuch ist keine to do Liste um ein besserer Mensch zu werden, lässt uns jedoch über unser eigenes Verhalten und unser Verhalten gegenüber anderen nachdenken. Viel zu oft verstecken wir uns hinter Fassaden. Dabei haben wir doch gar nichts zu verlieren und so viel zu gewinnen. Ich kann dieses Buch wärmstens empfehlen

Not a novel in the classic sense

The Audiobook is a series of sessions recorded in front of a live audience. That is sometimes a bit tricky as actions performed on stage are not fully explained, but she still tries to do a good job in doing so. I still give it 5 stars because there are some valuable lessons from it and as a researcher, I like the research perspective she is taking.

Ein Hörbuch welches mir immer wieder anhören werde. Es regt zum Umdenken an, hat mein Verständnis bezüglich Verwundbarkeit verändert und dadurch meine Lebensqualität verbessert.
