This month's topic: The Power of Vulnerability by Brené Brown
Brené studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In this poignant, funny talk of over 11 million views, she shares insight from her research on vulnerability, courage, authenticity, resilience, and shame. Her talk shares her personal quest to know herself and her effort to understand humanity.

On the first Saturday of every month, we view a recorded TED Talk (of about 20 min.) from those posted at ted.com. Talks are by a person notable in their field, who has interesting things to say. After viewing their presentation, we'll break into smaller groups and talk about the ideas raised (with the occasional tangent! ;-)
Talks are selected because they spark the interest of Rebecca, our TED salon moderator, and are likely candidates for good conversation. (Recommendations are welcome - email Rebecca.)
