It's been just one year since I walked around London with a couple of hundred other photographers and +Trey Ratcliff (apologies for the unflattering view!). Little did I know then that I would be starting my second sphere of the +The Arcanum a year later!

Vulnerability is the Heart of Our Culture
What am I going to say that will be interesting to thousands of people!? IF they read it, will they think I’m crazy!?"

This is what through my mind about 100 times before I wrote this article.

The feeling was identical to what I experienced during my very own first critique session (with the amazing Robin Griggs Wood). I was a little overwhelmed and nervous about sharing my work with the world. Opening myself up to critique. I knew it would lead to improvement but I feared the process. I powered through it and was rewarded with several insights about my own imagination, creativity and what I should practice in order to improve along my learning path. Being vulnerable, putting myself out there, created new opportunities for growth.

After my critique, I felt like I passed through a gate. Being vulnerable was the key to that gate. The key to one more step along my learning path. Without the opportunity to be vulnerable, I don’t know if I could have progressed on my learning path. This goodness happens when every Member of The Arcanum nurtures and protects our culture of vulnerability and service. When we do this together, we enjoy an environment in which it is safe to be vulnerable. We share openly with an expectation of receiving courteous and constructive critique, absent of ridicule and rejection.

P.S. If you’re interested in learning more about how important vulnerability is to the creative process, check out the TED Talk by Brene Brown on the Power of Vulnerability.
