Karisa Bigelow: Five Reasons We Should Be Naked Right Now


Click on the link to Elephant Journal for Karisa’s article. She is using the idea of physical nakedness as an apt metaphor for emotional nakedness and openness. Like Brene Brown – and like us at this service – she sees healing, growth and actualization arising through our willingness to experience our vulnerability, and bring our full, open, vulnerable selves to relationship.

There’s lots here – and the writer especially resonated with:-

‘If we could see into the hearts of everyone in the world, we’d find that we all share, to some degree, being a little scared of vulnerability. We all have something inside of us that we keep hidden in fear of being unworthy, unlovable, inappropriate or flawed. In daring to express ourselves fully, we may just give others courage to do the same, too. We’re all in this together.’
