Join us for our NEW book Club selection discussion for May 2013. "Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead" by Dr. Brene Brown.
Dr. Brown was recently on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday, and here is a brief writie up about it "Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Brené Brown, internationally-acclaimed speaker and New York Times bestselling author of “Daring Greatly,” discuss how what we often consider our greatest weaknesses may actually be our greatest strengths, in an all-new episode of “Super Soul Sunday,” the Emmy® Award-winning series designed to help viewers awaken to their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them. The episode airs this Sunday, March 17 at 11 a.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. (Look out for the re-runs! or DVR it if you have one!)
For the past twelve years, research professor Dr. Brown studied vulnerability, worthiness, shame and courage as a professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. During a 2010 TEDx Talk in Houston, she opened up about her own vulnerabilities and her quest to better understand herself. Her story of personal discovery resonated with people far beyond those in attendance, garnering almost eight million views on TED.com. In her new book “Daring Greatly,” Brown examines how the courage to be vulnerable can transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
In addition to the regular meetups and journaling classes that this meetup offers, we also offer a monthly spiritual book club! So many of us have an array of books that we want to read and sometimes don't get around to...The goal of this book club is to inspire us all to read more often, and create a book club setting so that we will have a place to discuss our insights, experiences and questions.
The Book club meet up discussion date is Saturday June 8th from 12-1:30. All of our meetups take place at the Nourish My Spirit Wellness Office in Fanwood NJ.
If you cannot make the meeting, feel free to follow along online and to post any insights or questions you have about the book on the "discussions" page under "Daring Greatly".
Hope to see you at the book club discussion!
This Book Club is free.
