I love books, and reading. I love where books take me.
In my psychotherapy work, books and poetry become my tools.
Yet sometimes with the responsibilities of home, parenting and work, reading for leisure takes a back seat. In fact, it can feel like a luxury dabbled with a little guilt, as we take time away from the “shoulds” of our lives.
I know (as you do) that self-development or personal growth or “dealing with my stuff” is helpful not just for myself but also to those with whom I come in contact. I cannot give when empty.
I need to give myself permission to grow, to work on being my best self. Only then can I be in my best self with others.
No better time than now, as we are required to stay home and some of the “shoulds” have been taken from us. Maybe there’s a little time saved from our daily work commute. Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to but can’t justify the time. This may not even be at the top of your leisure list but being restricted from the outside world, this is a pleasurable option.
Come join me, (a psychotherapist trained in group facilitation and an avid book-reader) in an online book group which serves the purpose of leisure and personal development.
Stories can shape your lives. Here, you may come upon your tribe. You may gather some new insights. You may experience a certain liberation.
Ready to read books, have robust facilitated conversations, and share insights in a supportive space? There will be a selection of books which I will curate for the group to explore aspects of living life, which will inspire and motivate you to be better versions of yourself.
