Shame is a universal emotion that invites us to feel bad about who we are. It is associated with depression, grief, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction and violence. Shame creates feelings of fear, blame and disconnect. In this educational and interactive group, we will learn to recognize and understand shame and cultivate shame resilience. The content was developed by shame researcher and author Dr. Brené Brown. Through personal and group exercises, videos, readings and group discussion, we will explore our experiences and responses to shame. We will also learn how practicing empathy, critical awareness and connecting with others helps us stand up to shame.

NOTE: This event is external to Kira's KivaGarden; but this information is being provided because it is a program created by Dr. Brené Brown, whose life work on shame and shame resilience is at the foundation of the KivaGarden. And, one of the groups was led by a close friend of the KivaGarden. KK
