A gentle willingness to be seen for who we are right now, rather than who we wish we could be. We seek to consciously remove our masks and allow ourselves to be fully known, flaws and all. Our leap of faith gives others permission to do the same, which opens pathways of trust. With our mutual masks removed we can easily see what’s always been true: beneath our stories, it’s the same longing running through us all. Vulnerability leads to the ability to love, and to be loved, for who we are beneath our conditioning.
