Description

Thrive Therapy Book Club

There are countless of #1 New York bestseller self-help books on the market that are so relatable and engaging. Authors we’ve never met manage to communicate how we feel in such a succinct and articulate way that it helps us better understand our own experience. However, upon conclusion of the final chapter it can be difficult to determine how to move apply what we learning from the book to our own lives. Where do we go from here? Thrive Therapy’s self-help book review creates an opportunity to explore self-help content with mental health professionals and practitioners. Together we sift through the chapter, discuss any shifts in perspective and/or determine if the book prompts any practical changes in our lives. Join us at our next Thrive Therapy book review for coffee, connection and chance to unravel some questions from your favorite books and authors.

Please reserve your seat in advance, as only 12 seats are available.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Lead by Mental Health Professional or Practitioner
  • Considerate discussion around the themes and concepts of the book
  • Exploration of new perspectives while challenging old ones
  • Coffee and a welcoming environment!

BOOK:

YOUR BODY IS NOT AN APOLOGY: The Power of Radical Self-Love by Sonya Renee Taylor

SUMMARY:

"A global movement guided by love.

Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.

The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world—for us all."
