My guess is that you are here because you want to read "Fierce Self-Compassion" by Kristin Neff. and you want to do so in community, rather than on your own.
You are also here to: be inspired and engaged connect and belong practice courage over comfort create new ways of living and loving
I'm so beyond grateful for you and this lovely healing book circle! I'm so much richer, wiser, and happier for meeting you and every person in our group. Love that this was an international group too! Thank you Theresa for all of your kindness, courage, gentleness and expertise with leading us together on this lovely journey.

Please note that sessions are NOT recorded. Space is limited to 12 participants. Registration closes September 5th at 9:00am CET.
Why is there a fee? There are multiple reasons for the fee:
Leading and facilitating book circles is my professional. I am not sure what you do for work, but I can imagine that you appreciate being paid for the value you bring.
People show up more fully when they have made a financial investment.
Boundaries. I give of my time in many ways, but I have learned that if I give too much of my time away without a sense of reciprocity in return, I will end up feeling resentful. The fee creates that reciprocity.
The fee is in Euros because I live in Europe. The price point is about $108 USD, $140 CAD, and 90£
What will happen during each book circle session? Each session is created in a workshop style, where the main goal is to dive deeper into the ideas through self-reflection, sharing, debating, role-playing, synthesis/analysis etc. Breakout room are used regularly to encourage participation and engagement. Each session begins with a check-in question to help us connect and ends with a reading that compliments our learning. Are there recordings of sessions? Unfortunately, no.
I do not record sessions for these reasons: 1) I value CONNECTION and we can't connect with you, nor you with us when you are watching a recording. 2) It's my way of encouraging you to SHOW UP for yourself 3) People are more courageous in their sharing when they aren't being recorded. 4) We often utilized break-out rooms, which can't be recorded.
Are you affiliated with Kristin Neff? No, I am not.
Since I lead book circles across a variety of topics and books, it is impossible to be affiliated directly with every author. If you think back to when you were in high school or even university/college, it was usually NOT the authors who facilitated your learning. It is no different here.
The expertise lies in the book, and in each of you. My role is to create a safe space for you to step back, connect more deeply with the ideas and yourself, challenge and perhaps shift perspectives, and integrate the ideas more completely into your life. If you have other questions, please email me.
Coach and Facilitator Bio
By combining my first career in education and educational leadership, with my second career as a professional coach, I have a unique perspective when it comes to learning, development, and leadership.
I know first hand, and through the 9 years that I have been coaching and mentoring individuals around the globe, that reading alone won't change your life. Yet, when you combine reading, with community, consistency, and coaching, you move from consuming new ideas, to creating new ways of living and leading.
