Safe Haven Feb Book Chat- Atlas of the Heart by Brene Brown
Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience
From Brene Brown- “If we want to find the way back to ourselves and one another, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories and to be stewards of the stories that we hear. In Atlas of the Heart, we explore eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human and walk through a new framework for cultivating meaningful connection. This is for the mapmakers and travelers in all of us.”
Let’s gather virtually at Safe Haven and have our first ever Book discussion of the first part of Brene Brown’s latest publication- exploring connection, and how we are wired as humans to bond to one another and ourselves.
