Mindful Matters w Chris Griffin, LPC & Burke Lewis

Jun 26, 2020

We are releasing a podcast this week recorded back in the fall where we discuss the concept of vulnerability and openness. Chris references a Ted Talk by Brene Brown where she found that a key source of happiness was found in people’s ability to be open and vulnerable.

We discuss how learning to be vulnerable acts as a cornerstone in developing a mindfulness practice.  By breaking down our walls, we allow ourselves to be seen, and learn how to proceed in a healthy and positive way.  Giving ourselves permission to be vulnerable, not only with others, but also with ourselves, we begin to identify and accept the wide range of emotions that we feel. Guided by a mindfulness practice, and perhaps also the help of a therapist, we realize that these difficult emotions that we are opening ourselves up to are there to be processed, not to be fixed.

We hope you enjoy and we are always open to hearing from you
