WHAT is shelf help?

Shelf Help is an online/offline book club and community dedicated to self-help and self-development founded by wellbeing journalist (and self-help geek) Toni Jones.

The Shelf Help mission is to connect as many people as possible with books that inspire them to look at themselves in a different way.

And then to connect these people with each other, through online and offline meetups and author events.

We want to encourage people to READ more, LEARN more and TALK more about the things that matter.

And Shelf Help has been created as a place for like-minded souls to connect, share and support each other through the themes of each month's self-help title, whether that's digitally through our Instagram page or private Facebook group, or in real life (gasp!) at our book clubs and retreats.

And everyone is welcome - whether you're an enlightened meditator who reads A Course In Miracles for fun, or you think the Dalai Lama lives in London Zoo - the only criteria to join this club is an open heart and an inquisitive mind.

We want to demystify the self-help sector, celebrate all that's great about it and prove that working on ourselves doesn't need to be scary or weird.

Because we believe that we can all benefit from a bit of self-reflection and group love, whatever's going on in life right now.

ABOUT THE MEETUPS

Fusing the best elements of book clubs (sociability, accountability opportunities to learn) and support groups (connection, confidentiality, kindness) Shelf Help meetings are safe spaces for members to discuss the books and how the topics may affect their own lives. They are a chance to be heard, to heal, grow, relate and learn. Or even just listen (often the most enlightening act of all).

Our digital and real-life meetups usually happen on the last Monday of the month, and we are currently looking for book lovers all over the world to host local meetups and help us grow.

From mindfulness tips and mantras, to mystical advice, motivational guides and mirror work, 'self-help' in its many guises can be empowering, healing, challenging, uplifting and often life-changing. And like most things in life, it's even better with friends.
