Mentorship Committee Book Club: The Power of Vulnerability by Brené Brown
Thanks to all those who joined us for April’s book club! We had a great discussion, despite the short notice on the book selection. Here’s advance notice for our next book club, which will be July 14, 2021 at 19:00. We will be discussing The Power of Vulnerability by Brené Brown. "In our culture," teaches Dr. Brené Brown, "we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love." On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise―that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
The book club entails a 1-hour online call, where members will be able to get to know each other and discuss the selected book. All members (students, technicians, etc.) welcome! VSHP Book Club will be held at 19:00 on the 2nd Wednesday of every 3rd month (January, April, July, October)
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
