The Power of Vulnerability: Moving Beyond Shame Toward Life
Wednesdays, March 4, 11, and 18, 2020, 6:45 – 8:15 p.m., Bloedel Hall
Facilitated by Cathedral Canons Daugherty, Ross, & Chapman
To risk being vulnerable is to risk discovering one’s true, authentic self. What does it take to be vulnerable? What gets in the way of authentic living, and why? Based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown, this series examines barriers that get in the way of authentic living, including how shame-honor cultures have promoted increasingly contorted experiences of self and others. We will also look at practices that foster a healthy framework of living. Truth that grows from love doesn’t bite or belittle—instead, truth nurtures the fullness of our being with each other, with ourselves, and with God. It is the kind of truth that thrives on real vulnerability. Join us this Lent as we engage in self-reflection, examining how barriers in our own lives impact us and how those can be transformed into new, better ways of living.
Program is free with no registration required; optional community dinner at 6 p.m., $7.
