Let go of who you think you are and embrace who you’re supposed to be! Have you ever thought, “What will people think?” or “Am I not good enough?” In "The Gifts of Imperfection", Dr. Brené Brown, a leading expert on shame, authenticity, and belonging, shares ten guideposts for personal introspection which involve cultivating some positive quality, whether it be authenticity, self-compassion, or a resilient spirit, intuition, meaningful work, or laughter.
Come join two of our leaders from The Open Table, Garrett and Elizabeth(Elle), as they lead conversational workshops taking us through the text, beginning June 6. The workshops will be supplemented by a variety of creative mediums which will help build empathy, self-compassion and vulnerability; urge us to expose and expel insecurities; help us move towards our values; and empower courage and offer reflection on how to "Get Deliberate" and actively pursue a more meaningful life.
The Open Table is a progressive church community of hospitality and conversation; a place of rest and beauty. Everyone who has imperfections or struggles with deep questions is welcome. You can find more about us here: http://theopentablekc.com/
