The purpose of this group is to allow people to experience authentic connection with others in a safe setting. The focus of this group is personal development: to use connection with others to help us see the wonderful person that we really are underneath all our negative self-talk and shame. Inspired by the work of Brene Brown and many other influences including Buddhism, we can heal each other simply by listening, seeing what is there, and offering support. 

An earlier version of this meetup was held in 2012 under the name "Gifts of Imperfection".

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
