Dr Brené Brown is a social scientist from the United States who speaks and publishes on topics including vulnerability, shame, courage, and connectedness. Brown has published multiple number one New York Times bestsellers and her TED talks have received tens of millions of views. In this Carmelite Conversation, we will explore the possibility of the work of Brené Brown providing a bridge into the wisdom of the Carmelite mystical tradition. We will consider ways in which Brown’s insights can potentially be expanded and grounded by the insights of Carmelite spirituality, and possible situations in which drawing such connections could be helpful.

Michelle teaches online with BBI-The Australian Institute of Theological Education and also manages the website and social media channels of the Discalced Carmelites of the Australia-Oceania region. https://carmelite.com
