Brene Brown's New Netflix movie "The Call To Courage" Popcorn served - come take notes - lean in to the discomfort!!! Open discussion after - Five best-selling books later, Brown is debuting her first Netflix special on Friday, ”Brené Brown: The Call to Courage ,” based off her two decades of research. The special is a bit of an experiment for the streaming service, whose categories Brown doesn’t neatly fit into. “Am I comedy? Documentary? True crime?” Brown joked. Brown’s skill as a writer and speaker is that she doesn’t sound like a typical self-help or leadership expert who is shouting motivational speaker mantras. She has a researcher’s mind for patterns and a storyteller’s gift of language. She peppers her talks with plenty of Texas colloquialisms, like “There’s nothing in the middle of the road but white stripes and dead armadillos.” She tells personal anecdotes about her kids and her husband to illustrate her broader ideas about parenting, compassion, leadership and more.

We will read together each week and discuss the ideas presented, so whether you have the book or not, or can join every week or not, when you come, you will have an opportunity to learn and to contribute! Our Current Book: Shadow Dance: Liberating the Power & Creativity of Your Dark Side By David Richo Our "shadow" is the collection of negative or undesirable traits we keep hidden—the things we don't like about ourselves or are afraid to admit: egotist, non-"PC" proclivities, forbidden sexual desires. But it also includes our positive, untapped potential—qualities we may admire in others but disavow in ourselves. Befriending the shadow makes fear an ally and enables us to live more authentically. It also automatically improves our interpersonal relationships, because we are freed from the need to project our own negativity onto others, and we become more acutely aware when theirs is projected onto us. David Richo looks for where the shadow manifests in personal life, family interaction, religion, relationship, and the world around is. He shows how to use the gentle practice of mindfulness to work with our shadow side, and he provides numerous exercises for going deeper. He is remarkably skillful at making the shadow concept not only easy to understand, but supremely practical for enhancing the quality of our lives.
