Book Summary: In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging. Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other … Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. (Penguin RH)
