 “an exploration of the extent to which we embrace our vulnerabilities and

celebrate our personal authenticity and power”

This highly experiential workshop is based on the work of Brene Brown and seeks to bring the concepts she describes into the lives of the participants, using the creative media of drawing and model making and consultation.

The essential theme underlying Brene Brown’s work is that we are all hard wired for connection with others, and the extent to which we are able to connect is intimately linked with our relation to our own vulnerabilities.   She suggests that vulnerability is not an option, it is something everybody feels from time to time; what is an option is how we relate to and manage our reaction to our vulnerabilities.

In this workshop we will spend some time exploring her ideas in more detail and, through experiential exercises involving drawing and model making, we will explore their relevance to ourselves. It is often our relationship with our own creativity (or our perception of it) that stimulates our vulnerability.

The workshop will be facilitated by Andy de Cruz, Lili Barcroft and Pattie Horrocks.  Andy and Lili are both experienced creative professionals, using and teaching creative techniques within their practice, and Pattie is an experienced coach and facilitator, particularly interested in Brene’s work at the moment) and a Sadler Heath moderator.

This particular event will be moderated by Jeremy Keeley.

We hope you will be OK with sharing our cost which we estimate as £60 per person including VAT including the cost of a light lunch, but please don’t let the cost be a barrier.
