June 11, 2020 - Thursday 7-9pm - Gifts of Imperfection Guidepost 10: Cultivating Laughter, Song & Dance and Letting Go of Cool & “In Control” - with Jessica Bean, ND, MS, CDWF


Learn to apply Brené Brown’s transformative work in your life: allow your body and voice to express your joys and liberate yourself from having to be seen in a particular way by others.

From a young age we’ve been shut down by the message that we won’t be accepted as our authentic selves. Embrace full, joyful expression of your voice and body, and liberate yourself from the need to manage how you’re perceived by others.

Brené Brown says that “we move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands.” Integrate this guidepost through discussion, reflection and creative activities alongside fellow seekers of growth and change. Bring a sketchbook or large unlined journal; all other supplies will be provided. No art or creative experience is required. 

Each guidepost is independent, and you are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions. 

Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW is a research professor at the University of Houston School of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers. Brené’s TED talk – The Power of Vulnerability – is among the top five most watched TED talks in the world with over 39 million views.

Jessica Bean, ND, MS, CDWF is passionate about Brené Brown’s transformative work. She is a certified facilitator through the Brené’s organization, The Daring Way™, and began offering groups and workshops in 2014. She has also been faculty at Bastyr University since 2011, where she teaches in the naturopathic medicine and public health programs.

For each guidepost the content will include a mixture of:

  • Key concepts and research findings
  • Small group discussions on the role of the guidepost in each person’s own life
  • Journal reflections & sharing in small and large groups
  • Creative activities such as collage, drawing, word art, etc.

The actual cost per session is $25.  In order to make access to the sessions more equitable, a sliding scale rate of $15 per session is available.
