A Family Action Network (FAN) Program currently sold out

Rising Strong: The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution

For the legions of fans of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection, comes the next step in the groundbreaking research of thought leader Brené Brown, Ph.D. A research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, Brown’s TED talks on shame and vulnerability have garnered over 23 million views and have changed our cultural conversation. Brown has worked with organizations including Facebook, Microsoft, Pixar, AT&T, Costco, West Point, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and many others. Her new book, Rising Strong, tells us what it takes to get back up after failure and teaches us how owning our stories of disappointment and heartbreak give us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle, Brown writes, can be our greatest call to courage, and Rising Strong our clearest path to a wholehearted life.

This event requires an RSVP, and is currently sold out. See www.familyactionnetwork.net for more information.
