If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that we are wired for connection. We need community and we need each other. This need for community is why I started COURAGEworks in late 2015. From 2015-2017, thousands of you participated in this community. You taught and learned, shared and listened, asked for a hand and lent a hand. It was an amazing experience, and I’m deeply grateful for all of you.

In order to build a more direct connection between all of us, I closed COURAGEworks in December, 2017. This wasn’t an easy decision, but it gives us the space to do something new – something that we hope is an even better place to connect. Past learners can access courses on our COURAGEworks archive at brenebrown.com.

In early September, we re-launched brenebrown.com along with a few surprises. The new website is much more accessible, and I’ve started writing again. I’m also going to introduce new ways for us to gather, have fun, and learn how to show up as our most daring selves.

And, no matter where you are in the world, everyone can participate. There are new opportunities for learning, but there isn’t a paywall between you and those opportunities. You offered us great feedback about what matters to you the most, and we listened.

If you have additional questions, please reach out to connect@brenebrown.com.

I’m excited about this new chapter. We’re doing something important together. Something that makes this world a braver place.

In gratitude,
