Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice by Brené Brown

Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice

With her previous bestsellers, Dr. Brene 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, Brene discovered a key factor. Without exception, she says, the concept of spirituality emerged from the ...

Reviews Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice

  • Mary
    I am firmly in the camp of "everything Brene Brown touches turns to gold". As a therapist, I'm always equal parts reading her works to manage/process/recreate my own ish (so that I can be ready and able to guide my clients through theirs) and feeling like I'm attending the best, most heart-driven CEUs ever. While I think her Power of Vulnerability audio class is the best of her book-addendum audio recordings (this one was really good, but that on...

    I really love Brené Brown. She is especially good in her live versions (this one and in The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings of Authenticity, Connections and Courage). She is funny, witty, smart and honest, sometimes sad and painful. A whole (and a whole hearted) human being. I love her live talks much more than her books that are slower and more repetitive.Do not take spirituality as a negative thing (I might, that's why I would like to point ...

    Brene Brown is so smart. She is so human and real and relatable. This was no different. She spoke to me and about me. She is captivating. She visited some ideas from Rising Strong and SFD (“stormy” first drafts when reacting to something.) After I was done with this I felt rejuvenated and also wanted to be better about giving other people the benefit of the doubt and think more about if people were genuinely doing the best they could with lif...

    I actually listened to this twice in succession because the truth I found here was visceral. Brene says, "I'm a person of faith because I believe in people." Me, too. Spirituality is that we believe in our connectedness as humans. I believe in God and I believe that our connection to each other is the whole reason we are here. I have found myself more open and kind to all people after listening to this book (it's audio only, but available through...

    Probably the most influential book I’ve listened to in a very long time. I listened to it and immediately listened again. Brené Brown has become one of my favorite authors and Ted Talk speakers. Smart, funny and brutally honest, her books are incredibly powerful. Seeing her live is a new addition to my bucket list.
  • Natalie Park
    I love, love, love this talk and the audio is fabulous. I would give it 10 stars if possible. It is something I will go back to and listen again and again as there are so many lessons and aha moments.
  • Jennifer Lucking
    I need to listen to this at least once a month for the rest of my life. “Rising Strong” is my favourite (so far) of Brown’s books, and this 3 hour lecture on the spiritual practice of rising strong and reckoning and rumbling with our stories is GOLD.
  • Kate
    Very much needed that today. And now I want to find some empathy cards that read “I feel with you” rather than “I feel for you”.
  • R
    Listened to the audiobook book. So much goodness. I need it all to seep in to my being.
  • Lindsay Nixon
    This is a recorded motivational speech with a few helpful ideas to ponder such as it’s better to assume everyone is doing the best They can (so don’t judge them)Update (from second helping)"Spirituality - Recognizing and celebrating that we are inextricably connected to one another by a power greater than all of us and that our connection to that power, and to one another, is grounded in love and belonging."
  • Kristen Doyle
    Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice is an audiobook only follow up to Brene Brown’s bestselling book, Rising Strong. If you are looking for some quick nuggets of practical wisdom from Brene Brown, I can’t recommend this audiobook enough. Brown digs in deep to talk about spirituality, vulnerability, grace, acceptance and more. This audio was just what I needed to hear at exactly the right time, and will be a resource I definitely turn to aga...
  • Erin Donaldson
    Hilarious and poignant. This is a great LIVE Audio of researcher Brene Brown giving a talk about Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice. I laughed out loud so many times my face hurt and was near tears and goosebumps with the revelations and stories she tells. She illustrates and is able to craft stories so perfectly to get the points across. From dealing with your SFD (Sh*tty First Draft), reckoning and actually acknowledging the emotions your fe...

    I think this is only available as a recording of a talk that Brown gave - so it's not really a book - but since I checked it out from my county library and it is here on GoodReads, I'm counting it!I read - and loved - Rising Strong earlier this year, and in this talk, Brown reiterates the process, illustrating it with some of the same as well as some different examples, and she talks about how to make it a spiritual practice. I found her insights...
  • Sara
    This isn't so much an audio book as it is a recording of a lecture and Q&A session with Brene Brown. It had all of the good things of Brown's Ted Talks - and more. It was a great way to spend a short time. I'll likely listen to it again sometime in the future.
  • Amanda
    Wow. I am blown away by this three-parter on spirituality and rising strong, facing your fears and emotions and courageously being compassionate. I want all my friends to listen to or read this, because the lessons are great and the growth I’ll experience from it will be too.
  • Shelley

    #allthestars Brene’s work is powerful
  • Maritza
    Listen to. Totally accessible. Super fun. Sort of like listening to a long TED talk followed by a podcast. Strongly recommend for those healing from hard things or just wanting to learn how to grow and flourish intentionally.
  • Ann Single
    More Brene brilliance. Practical, candid and always witty. The S****y First Draft is a wonderful tool.
  • yenni m
    I will listen to this over and over for the rest of my time. With one listen I've been inspired, I've learnt, I've laughed and cried and changed for the better. Brené Brown as required reading for all would be a total blessing. It's all about love.
  • Erin Rouleau
    "...definitions are really important, it doesn't tell you what spirituality needs to be for you, but it will tell you how I think of spirituality and what emerged from my data as the definition of spirituality because I think so much of the viciousness that we're seeing today in the world is about not understanding and not listening and not hearing, so I want to get real close up with this definition before we start...I define spirituality as rec...
  • Hilary Whatley
    Great! Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice goes into a lot of depth. Many concepts that I've already been learning were reinforced (such as embracing difficult emotions, naming and describing emotions as they happen, and becoming self-aware about the stories I tell myself).However, my favorite part is when she discusses assuming positive intent / assuming people are "doing the best they can." I never realized this is an area I've been strugglin...

    Brene Brown is a gift from the universe to the people who live in the universe. I think she has changed my life. At the very least, she has changed my heart, because she has taught me how to change the way I talk about and to myself. And that will change the way I talk about and to you. Nothing I’ve learned in these past 60 years is really quite as remodeling as the ideas of “the story I’m telling myself” and “changing the end of the st...
  • Andrea
    I enjoyed listening to the recorded talk done in Colorado. Ultimately listening to Brené is a gift. She is funny and disperses gold nuggets throughout her books and talks.In this talk, I learned two major gold nuggets that I would like to start practicing. First, the SFD (Stormy First Draft for kids. Shitty First Draft for adults - coined by Anne Lamont) Since the name doesn’t quite explain what an SFD is I think it’s simply writing your fee...
  • Lisa
    This is a recording of Brown's conference so there's "live" participation with cheers, laughter and audience interjections which makes for fun listening. You do feel like you're there, part of a whole, which achieves Brown's overall point that "we are all one" - a tapestry where the moments and people that annoy, upset and challenge you are as necessary as the beautiful, shining, perfect pieces in your life. I enjoyed this taste of Brown's work; ...
