How love turns pain into purpose | Steven Hayes | TEDx University of Nevada

Steve Hayes distills the essence of psychological flexibility down into a few easy to understand sentences. He takes viewers through a harrowing journey into his own panic disorder, to the very moment in his life when he made this life changing choice: "I will not run from me".
Steve shows how making that choice allows us to connect with our own deep sense of meaning and purpose: "Bringing love to yourself, even when it's hard, will help you bring love into the world, in the way you want to".

The Power of Vulnerability

Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.
