This is a group for people who want to dare greatly and practice the 10 Guideposts of wholehearted living. If you have read Brene' Brown’s books, or taken her eCourses, you know that the way you create a wholehearted life is by practicing the 10 Guideposts. Practice can be the hardest part. In this group you will make friends willing to be vulnerable and find the support you need to practice being brave. We meet the third week of each month on Thusday evening and Saturday afternoon. You may come to one or the other or both. The topic will be the same to accommodate different schedules.

Beginning in March 2015 we began working through the on-demand online course that was originally offered live through Oprah.com. It is a 12 lesson course based on Brene's book, the Gifts of Imperfection. Each lesson focuses on one of the 10 Guideposts to wholehearted living. We take 2 meetups (months) to work through each guidepost (lesson). Each lesson includes videos by Brene Brown and Oprah and art journal activities.

Here's how it works ...

During the first meetup (e.g., March) we watch a 10-15 minute intro video by Oprah and Brene and then have a short discussion. We watch a second 10-12 minute video that describes the guidepost and art journal activities to complete. Our "homework" before the second meetup (e.g., April) will be a reading assignment from Gifts of Imperfection and the art journal exercises. We'll talk about both during the second meetup.

Access to the onDemand eCourse is available on Oprah.com for $69.99.  It is a recorded version of what was presented live.  Access provides you with unlimited use.

Feel free to contact me with questions. I learn something new everytime I read the book or think about the art assignments.  I know I will learn more working through it again.

Hope to see you Thursday or Saturday!

Suzanne

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
