Embracing Our Vulnerability and Its Transformative Potential - Dr. Ted Dunn


You have chosen a theme that is completely contrary to the prevailing paradigm of our world. Embracing our vulnerability, speaks to me of the essence of humanity and the very heart of transformation. Embracing our vulnerability requires that we embrace the fullness of our being: life’s beauty and austerity, the full cycle of surrender, gestation, and birth, and all manner of anguish and love.


With each new cycle of life, in order for us to grow, we must not only humbly recognize our vulnerability, we must also embrace it.


In other words, embracing our vulnerability, is part and parcel of the inner and interpersonal work of transformation. It is not a question as to whether or not you like being vulnerable. The question is: Can you see the value in it and, therefore, will you choose to embrace this kind of heart-work for the transformative potential it holds?
