Mini Profiles: Brené Brown
If you’ve been following us on social media, then you’ve surely seen our weekly image reveals from our Mini Meditations titles. (And if you haven’t? Well, you need to fix that!) Having shown off so many amazing illustrations from Tillie Walden (Mini Meditations on Creativity) and Adam & Lisa Murphy (Mini Meditations on Joy), we now want to turn our focus to the writers, artists and thinkers behind the quotes!
Our fist Mini Profile is Brené Brown. Her lovely quote, “Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world”, is lovingly brought to life by Tillie Walden:
Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work.
Her work focuses largely on the study of authentic leadership and wholeheartedness in families, schools, and organizations but has also developed into detailed examinations of courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy.
She reached a whole new audience with her 2010 TED talk ‘The Power Of Vulnerability’ (one of the most watched videos on the platform!!!), and has followed that up with four books that have reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List, including The Gifts Of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong and Braving The Wilderness.
We can’t recommend ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ enough – you can watch it right here!
