Exploring Authenticity Women's Circle
About this event :
Authenticity is a popular word these days. We hear it frequently from our leaders and in advertising. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres credit much of their success to “being authentic”. Spiritual teachers of our time like Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, and Deepak Chopra appeal to us to “be your true self”. Brené Brown, the researcher, writes about it extensively in her books Braving the Wild, The Gift of Imperfection and Daring Greatly.
We live in a culture that is craving authenticity. We want the freedom to say, do and be who we really are without worrying so much about how we are perceived by others.
Sadly, even though we may say we want to live in a way that is true to who we are at the deepest level, most of us don’t. It’s not that easy. Many of us have learned from our parents, teachers, employers, and the media that it’s more important to be liked and to fit in than it is to be ourselves.
In this session, we’ll explore some ideas of what it means to be authentic and how being authentic can help increase our feelings of peace, joy and purpose. A few ideas for how to explore your authentic self will be offered.
