Buy this one book and you will have all you need to guide you through an affordable year's worth of meaningful and memorable Book Club Gatherings.
Available in hardcover with full color imagery, or in paperback with black and white interior, this book will be valuable not only to book club participants, but to therapists, coaches, teachers, youth leaders, couples and families.
Award winning workshop designer, facilitator, coach and somatic psychotherapist, Ruthie Landis writes in collaboration with Mind, Body, Heart, the Enneagram, Nature, Intuition and the Creative Force and has woven her co-creators' innate wisdom into twelve guided journeys.
In this book you will find catalyzing chapters that facilitate connected, reflective, and growth driven experiences, while at the same time helping you develop a deeper, kinder relationship with yourself. There are accessible, thoughtfully written explorations around human conditions from topics such as decision-making, loneliness, self-forgiveness, self-esteem, giving and receiving, and finally reclaiming personal wholeness in a challenging and critical world. More than just a story and workbook and journaling opportunity, through shared reading and creative learning activities participants will experience each other and themselves in a safe, nonjudgmental space, with the author's expert guidance.
Many people these days crave face-to-face contact when screen-to-screen is the norm. And it is hard to know how to make that happen. Friends form book clubs in an effort to achieve this, but many don't even have the time to read the book. With Beyond the Bookclub: We Are The Books We Must Read, you don't need to read a new book every month, merely move on to the next chapter and learn how to read yourself, the most important book of all.
We live in a society that is divisive and often cruel, cold, and asleep. So this is a call to action. The Universe is begging, no screaming, for us to do our inner work and stop avoiding our shadows and our shame. In these times, we need to expotentially grow more people who are awake, intentional, and emotionally and spiritually healthy. With the help of this book's short powerful stories and illuminating, playful and experiential scripts, you can gather your tribe, grow yourself, and build communities that know and live from compassion, awareness, love, and grace.
