Nicola (Infinity Therapies ) & Jennifer (The Joy Space) are honoured to invite you to join with us in A Book Club With A Difference.
Extraordinary times require us to show up in extra-ordinary ways. The situation we are currently in will not be solved by doing more of the ‘same’.
In navigating the present environment we are being called to manage so much change. This is inviting us to prioritise our connection to self and to explore and uncover new strategies that create different outcomes. Not only for you, but also for those around you.
The work that we do in the club provides proven and tested tools and practices that not only shift our world view but also provide us with ways of alchemising our current experiences. This is our third manifestation of the club and it continues to evolve and adapt as the world changes. We see this as a true testament to the power of The Womanly Arts!
We invite you to come, sit, reflect, move, share and explore new ideas all whilst having a laugh, maybe some tea and building relationships that you may have never known possible – whether that be a better understanding of yourself or connecting in new ways with like-minded courageous women.
Books bring us together as they give us a shared language and a common place for us to start to recognise our culture, our influences and our behaviours. They can make us laugh, cry, empathise, get angry and feel inspired. So it is from this place of openness, that we are asking you to join us in a new way of learning and connecting – at A Book Club With A Difference.
In A Book Club With A Difference, we use best selling personal development books to help us to raise our own levels of awareness and to create lives that we could only dream possible otherwise.
It is a Club that is ready to support, challenge and enable you to make the difference you want to make in the world.
Our entry point into book club is through our first book Pussy: A Reclamation by Regena Thomashauer.
This book and the work of Regena Thomashauer has had a huge impact on both Jen and Nicola’s lives and as a result, they are passionate about sharing the tools from this book with as many women as they can.
They know this book and its exercises change lives and creates community in a way that no other book has done, so as a result Pussy. A Reclamation is the gateway book, that all book clubbers must go through in order to attend further book clubs and offerings.
They are both passionate about creating safe spaces that allow everyone to engage at their own pace and in an open, inclusive and supportive way. So whilst the title may challenge you, trust us, the work will all be worth it!
So if you are ready to live your life with a little more pleasure, a little more joy and a whole lot of fun, despite these challenging times then come join us!
For all the juicy details, check out the FAQs below.
Why a Book Club?
Because let’s face it, we have all read many amazing books and had the thought we may change something and then done nothing, or thought, I would love to talk to someone about this, but never bothered to do it. We then go on our merry way, never thinking of it again. Never making the mini change that may have helped us to grow.
This is because without reflection in community, we don’t truly share that the work means to us and what we can do with it. As women, we all we learn more when we learn with others. We share more, we connect more, we have more fun!
So what’s the “different’ part of this Book Club?
Our Book Club will be different. For a start, we will meet weekly, online via Zoom.
Instead of rushing through the whole book and meeting at the end, we will take our sweet time, savouring just a chapter or 2 a week; enabling us to deep dive into the depth of what is offered.
Not only will we talk through the topics and learnings of each chapter but we will also actually practise the exercises together, in community!
Not only do we read the words, but we embody, dance and encourage each other in a deep dive, like no other.
What are the advantages of meeting online?
We want everyone to have the opportunity to participate without location boundaries and with the ability to connect with ease.
Meeting online provides us all with greater flexibility to stay connected each week. Technology can be our friend. We will have a Zoom call set up for you to join, all you will need to do is download Zoom prior to the first meeting. No traffic, no “other-side” of town drives and no babysitters required! _________________________________________________________
What is the first book?
Our first book, for Book Club With A Difference is: Pussy: A Reclamation by Regena Thomashauer.
Here is a little blurb from Amazon…
In Pussy: A Reclamation , you’ll discover what no one taught you about the source of your feminine power and how to use it. It’s no secret that women today are still undervalued at home, at work, and in relationship. Too many of us are at war with our bodies and disconnected from our truth. See, we live in a culture that teaches us to turn off. To play small. To take care of everyone else first. To keep a lid on our dreams and a cork on our truth. This book is written to reacquaint a woman with her own power source—which is the part of herself she has been taught to ignore, push down, and despise. Indeed, the word that most viscerally sums up that power is, as Regena puts it, “arguably the most powerful pejorative word in the English language.” Like any expletive used effectively, the title of this book is meant to be a wake-up call. It is a reclamation, in a world that desperately requires the feminine.
Why this book?
Because this book has changed both Jen and Nicola’s lives for the better in the most pleasurable and enjoyable ways. Regena provides us with an amazing platform and tools to reflect, grow, inspire and create an experience of true sisterhood. This work works. And it works best in community – and that’s what this club can offer! We ALL need well-pleasured women in our lives and in the world and if we want to be the owners of our destiny – let it be pleasure-filled because really no other options just stack up.
Who will love this book?
Women who want to trust themselves.
Women who are making changes.
Women who feel like there must be more.
Women who want to feel the experience of sisterhood.
Women wanting to find their own power and source energy. Women who are looking to go higher, play bigger.
Women who want to put some fuel on their desires.
Women who dont know why, but just feel called!
When will we meet & setting yourself up?
We will meet weekly on Tuesday nights at 7pm for 2 hours online via ZOOM.
We will send out the ZOOM link to you the day of the call.
Find yourself a quiet, private space with a little room to move.
Create a sacred space for yourself by perhaps lighting a candle, making yourself comfortable with cushions, a blanket, perhaps tea and snacks – whatever is in your pleasure.
Connect via your phone or laptop and settle in with your headphones if you feel called.
What will happen in a meeting?
Facilitated by Nicola and Jen, we will start each session with a grounding exercise, we will then review our insights from the chapter/s of the week, ask the big questions, share our experiences and then we will practise the tools of the Womanly Arts (all of which are included in the book!)
