"What makes you feel vulnerable?" / The power of vulnerability

A great supplement to the previously featured Ayi Kwei Armah lecture on "Our Awakening", here Dr. Brene Brown shares her story of how she (stubbornly) came to embrace the redefinition of her "breakdown" as a "spiritual awakening", as well as her sociological and anecdotal evidence helping define the psychological and spiritual value of vulnerability (and empathy). Good stuff.

Info: "Brene Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk at TEDxHouston, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share."
