About the Book
"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives--experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.
Brown argues that we're experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other.
“The closest distance between two people is a story”
This Fall you are invited to be apart of the Sacred Journey & StorySharing Series. Through this "Sacred Journey" we will be exploring how we share our stories in conjunction with reading and discussing Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone By Brene Brown
What is StorySharing?
In StorySharing, we tell our own stories and welcome other’s stories of what matters most. Through StorySharing, you will articulate the many ways you have experienced God’s presence and the many ways you experience your own life, your racial and cultural identity, and the differences God has planted throughout all of creation.
The StorySharing Campaign is a project of Beloved Community Project in The Episcopal Church.
