What we're about

Welcome to everybody who wants to join!

My name is Patricia and I have a passion for personal growth. I read a lot of books and listen to podcasts and YouTube videos and I'd love to share perspectives with other people.

I've never organized a book club or even have been a member of one but I think it'll be ok. What I picture is a very open and comfortable space for us to share our thoughts, experiences and opinions, trying to be understanding and respectful to everyone in the group. There's no requirement of age, gender, marital status, race, nationality or cake flavor preference.

Please, don't feel stressed to read the book each time. If you can read it, great. If you can't, great. What's important is that you show up with authenticity and sense of humor.

One final note. We are all different people, with different backgrounds and stories. While nobody will do it on purpose, there may be times when we will feel offended by someone's comment or tone. Please, don't take it as an attack but rather as an opportunity to be honest with the other person and let them know how we felt. We are all learning.

Here is the list of books we all helped create and that we'll be reading for the future meet ups:

Getting to Yes with Yourself, by William Ury.

Constructive Wallowing, by Tina Gilbertson.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey.

Hi guys! I wanted to say a big thank you to all of you that attended last event. I hope you had a good time and you're looking forward to the next event, like I am :) The next book is called "Constructive wallowing" by Tina Gilbertson. I hadn't heard of it before but I can't thank enough the person from this group that suggested it because I'm loving it! The place where we're meeting is a very cozy winery on 4th street called Wet Stone [masked]th Avenue · San Diego, CA). You are going to love it. Plus, they have happy hour menu the whole evening! You can buy a hard copy of the book here: https://amzn.to/2URdY93 An electronic copy for Kindle here: https://amzn.to/2GqRMiW Or the audiobook here: https://amzn.to/2S5sUyv Just a few words about the author and the book: Tina Gilbertson is a psychotherapist, speaker and author based in Denver, Colorado, with special interest in assertiveness and self-acceptance. "Constructive wallowing" is her first book and here is an overview that she writes herself: https://tinagilbertson.com/constructive-wallowing/. The majority of her work focuses on helping parent-young adult child relationships and she wrote a second book called the "Guide for Parents of Estranged Adult Children" that covers that area. This time, I'll probably be able to post beforehand the questions we'll discuss during the event. Check my website if you want to go through them before the event: https://www.bring-peopletogether.com/blog As always, please, don't hesitate to come just because you didn't read the book. We'll be able to create interesting conversation anyway. Looking forward to seeing you there and I wish you a wonderful Holidays!
