Publisher's Summary

With her previous best sellers, Dr. Brené Brown helped us realize that vulnerability is the birthplace for trust, belonging, joy, creativity, and love. Yet a willingness to be vulnerable means accepting that life will sometimes knock us down. Where do we find the strength to get back up? In her research for her breakthrough book Rising Strong, Brené discovered a key factor. "Without exception," she says, "the concept of spirituality emerged from the data as a critical component of overcoming struggle."

In Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice, Brené offers an in-depth exploration of this critical and oft-misunderstood aspect of wholehearted living. Here she defines spirituality as something not reliant on religion, theology, or dogma - rather, it is a belief in our interconnectedness and in a loving force greater than ourselves. Whether you access the sacred through traditional worship, solitary meditation, communion with nature, or creative pursuits, one thing is clear: Rising strong after falling is a spiritual practice that brings a sense of perspective, meaning, and purpose to our lives.

Should be required in schools and workplaces!

Firstly -- those listeners put off by 'spiritual' concepts, fear not. You will find zero issues here. A *very* broad vision of the spiritual is being referenced here.

This material is presented via the lecture + interview format. And while a good companion to the book Rising Strong, it's neither a sequel nor repetition of that content. Personally, I found this more accessible and applicable. It easily stands on its own and there are some fresh ideas not found in Rising Strong.

Brené is especially insightful, relatable and hilarious here and Tami Simon does her justice with some curly questions. Despite being a seasoned listener of this genre, I experienced several aha moments and one solid epiphany. In short, this is the sort of material that can change lives, families, organisations, schools and corporations. I'm already into my third listen.

Great, but not the book "Rising Strong"

This is hilarious, great and insightful, but it's not the book "Rising Strong", it's a more like a long format TED talk.

I love Brene's work, but it was not what I expected it to be. I'm heading over to purchase the book "Rising Strong" now (link below).

Love!

Love Brene Brown. Live audio, she keeps you hooked and feeling like you are in the room with her. She has you laughing and pondering all at the same time. The messages of spirituality are on point and so simplistically effective. Highly recommend this book.

Another insightful and valuable talk

Would you consider the audio edition of Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the print version. Audio walks for me because I can listen 'on the run'.

What does Brené Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Authentic personal energy and depth

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

More a deeper inner resonance and affirmation

Any additional comments?

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing there are gems of insight here. Listen.

Deeply thoughtful life changing & affirming.

Brenè Brown is a brilliant storyteller who makes real sense and shares a deep understanding of what it means to "Rise Strong". Brenè does so with concrete examples in a way that resonates with me and allows me to assimilate the information into a deeper understanding of my life and my work.
Team Brenès humourious and real storytelling with the calming and capturing style of host Tami Simon and you have a perfect match.
Tami Simon is an amazing host who has an incredible way of asking deeply thoughtful questions of her presenter that invites them to go even deeper and tease out the information so that the broader audience has clarity around the broader topics and more specific practices and questions.
This audio team goes down as one my favorites.
