Reading, sharing, discussing, and learning together ...
Currently meeting online every Monday at 11:00 AM We read the chapter with screen sharing in a Zoom chat room.
The chapter will either be read by the host, or we’ll listen simultaneously as the pages are turned, to the author or an audible version of the same book. At times, a book will be studied individually at home and then the entire time together will be spent discussing what we read.
THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION by Brene’ Brown
What transforms this book from words to effective daily practices are the 10 guideposts to wholehearted living. The guideposts not only help us understand the practices that will allow us to change our lives and families, they also walk us through the unattainable and sabotaging expectations that get in the way.
WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? by Oprah & Dr. Bruce Perry
Winfrey shares stories from her own past, and understands the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma and adversity at a young age. In conversation throughout the audiobook, she and Dr. Perry focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves. It’s a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it’s one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future – opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.
