Publisher's Summary

This is an unofficial workbook for Atlas of the Heart - Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience by Brené Brown, designed to enrich your listening experience.

Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston. She has spent the last two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. Through extensive research into the experiences that create the person we are, Brown, through this audiobook, helps us recognize and become familiar with courage and how to live a life from a place of courage.

Atlas of the Heart is about how, without having the right vocabulary, we become restricted to understand and explain what we are experiencing. The 87 emotions and experiences that Brown discusses in Atlas of the Heart are a combination of emotions and thoughts that lead to emotions. They are put into groups on the basis of how they relate and compare to one another.

Throughout the workbook you will find:


These summaries are concise overviews of each chapter, drawing key themes and learning outcomes. Within them you will discover:

  • The category that Brown uses to group the emotions
  • Definitions and examples for each emotion or experience
  • How to process and work with these emotions and experiences


Activities based on some of the key ideas and approaches put forward by Brown that help us develop positive emotions and release negative ones.

  • Stocktaking lessons that allow the listener to examine their own emotions and responses
  • Points of reflection that offer the listener the opportunity to better understand their emotions and experiences
  • Opportunities for discussion and journaling into how we can use our emotions and experiences as opportunities for personal change and growth


A brief dissection of the main idea of each chapter:

  • A concise overview of the main ideas Brown is keen to get across
  • Important features and context for the chapters
  • Breakdown of the arguments observed by Brown that helps us distinguish and differentiate between seemingly alike emotions


These bullet-pointed lists include:

  • Distilled concepts on how Brown has approached her work with emotions
  • Breakdown of each category of emotion and an understanding of all the emotions and experiences it is composed of
  • Plans and strategies for working with our emotions and building resilience

Action Plan

This is a chance for the listener to build their own personal ideas to engage with their emotions and experiences as they navigate the realms of past, present, and future.
