Vulnerability is all the craze these days. Watching Brown's wildly popular TED talk has helped me see that going deep into darkness is a good method for getting in touch with profound light. She also shows that moments of true revelation produce awful breakdowns. The point of vulnerability is not vulnerability itself but wholeheartedness.
As someone who traffics in immeasurable phenomenon that produce messy wholeheartedness, this talk reminds me I'm doing worthy work.
