Living Whole-Heartedly

Move from Shame to Courage, Compassion, & Connection!

Do procrastination, perfectionism, and people-pleasing keep you from living fully?

Join us for this practical 10-session workshop for men and women on how to find freedom from these and other common struggles, and learn to live a life full of authenticity, love, and belonging, and gain a resilient spirit in the face of adversity.

What Can I Expect?

Using videos, group discussion, and experiential exercises, together we will:

  • Come to understand shame and its role in our lives
  • Gain critical awareness by exploring triggers and vulnerabilities
  • Practice empathy for ourselves and others
  • Learn how to connect authentically with others
  • Embrace and inspire lasting change

While each session is based primarily on a curriculum by Brené Brown, we will also intentionally incorporate a number of faith-based components, including work by Christian psychiatrist Curt Thompson.

Behind the Curriculum

Dr Brené Brown developed Connections: A 12-Session Psychoeducation Shame-Resilience Curriculum, which is the basis for this workshop. She is a renowned researcher and storyteller, focused on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. She has authored three New York Times #1 best-sellers and her 2010 TEDxHouston Talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of top five most-viewed TED Talks in the world. We will be using her research and videos to better understand shame and how we can live resiliently.
