Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. Her TED talk could be entitled: Where the study of “whole-hearted” people identifies the roots of joy, happiness, creativity and belonging. Of particular interest is her definition of “shame” as being the fear of feeling disconnected from the group. Truly startling and really pertinent.
“Brown speaks to what really matters to us as humans, instead of what we often think matters. Her research deepens our understanding of positive concepts such as gratitude, joy, compassion, authenticity, resilience, faith, and play.” by Steve Safigan from “wholehearted living“.
