“In this Say It Brave event, we’re going to delve into what we can do when societal shame tempts us to hide our true emotions and specific ways we can:
  • Find the courage to experience envy long enough to learn from it
  • Let our sources of envy signal to us what is missing in our lives and inspire actionable steps
  • Create more space inside for universal experiences of “good” and “bad” emotions”
