"The most accurate measure of courage is Vulnerability." (Brene Brown)
How to Live the Power of Vulnerability is choosing safe connection rather than safe distance in our relationships. With loneliness now at epidemic levels in the Western world, courage to connect is one of our greatest social needs.
For connection to happen, we must be vulnerable. This doesn't mean we have to wear our heart on our sleeve. Vulnerability without boundaries is fear and anxiety. So what is then vulnerability and how do we do connection?
WHAT IS THIS?
How to Live the Power of Vulnerability is a 2.5hour e-Course you can do in your own time, at your own pace!
It is the first and popular module in the Living Courage series and our first foundation stone of building courage as a life style. Living Courage is a training series consisting of 4 modules.
While each module can stand alone and be done as an individual course. The Living Courage series is designed to build onto each other creating a deeper more comprehensive understanding and development of the skills and lifestyle of courage.

WHERE DOES THIS FIT WITH FAITH and WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
The Bible is an account of a God who has stopped at nothing to get connection back with us. The centre piece of this story is vulnerability. The choice Jesus made to become human, was a choice for vulnerability. Jesus valued vulnerability and did vulnerability. His humanity was intrinsically tied to it. He knew full well the risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure of showing up as He was, the Son of God!
I don't believe we are going to move forward without having a strong value and committment to vulnerability. It is our way home to authenticity. Vulnerability and connection at the heart of the Gospel of Jesus. Not only does our faith hinge on vulnerability, but we are not going to build strong healthy counter culture faith communities without it.

It is OK to do this course and use all worksheets with others in your Leadership or Staffing teams, friendship groups or Church groups. We ask that each group member pay for the course themselves. We live by a core value of honor and this is a way to honor the work of the Author and yourself as a learner. We value what we sacrifice for. For me, this is a means of income and a way of supporting the work so I can continue in it. Share, learn, grow and change the world you live in!
