Brené Brown is a researcher who tells stories about people’s lives. She possesses a deep understanding of how we relate to ourselves and one another and has spoken on TED Talks twice, here and here. It’s worth your while to take a look. And here are a few of her words on spirituality and wholeheartedness. Enjoy!
“Spirituality emerged as a fundamental guidepost in Wholeheartedness. Not religiosity but the deeply held belief that we are inextricably connected to one another by a force greater than ourselves–a force grounded in love and compassion. For some of us that’s God, for others it’s nature, art, or even human soulfulness. I believe that owning our worthiness is the act of acknowledging that we are sacred. Perhaps embracing vulnerability and overcoming numbing is ultimately about the care and feeding of our spirits.”
