January 24 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm
This group is for anyone interested in reading (or re-reading!) a broad range of books relevant to our yoga practice and exploring themes related to yoga. Our intention is to create a stronger sense of community at Yoga in ME and to broaden our understanding of yoga beyond the physical practice.
Since our book club is not dissecting literary concepts, there is no need to be intimidated. It will be like hanging out and talking through your ideas on life with great company who help you to expand your ideas. We are less interested in whether you’ve read the book than in your participation in stimulating discussion about any issues the book might raise.
Don’t miss one of the best conversations and opportunities for discussion with others interested in deepening their understanding of yoga, enlightenment, healthy eating, and life in general.
No registration required and there is no fee.
Please bring a healthy snack and/or beverage to share.
This Month’s Book
Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown
“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.
From the Author’s Web Site:
The official line: I’m a research professor at the University of Houston where I hold the Huffington Endowed Chair. I’ve spent the past sixteen years studying courage, vulnerability, empathy, and shame. I’m the author of four books: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, and Braving the Wilderness.
The bottom line: I believe that vulnerability – the willingness to be “all in” even when you know it can mean failing and hurting – is brave. I do NOT believe that cussing and praying are mutually exclusive. And, I absolutely believe that the passing lane is for passing only.
