The Paradox of Being Vulnerable

Being vulnerable is not about being weak! It is about harnessing the necessary strength to be open, authentic, and a conquered “presence in the presence of others.”

Focusing on being an authentic presence in the presence of others creates communities of care and concern where each voice, especially the deepest yearnings of the vulnerable, are listened to and embraced.
