august 2019 book of the month
WHAT is shelf help?
Shelf Help is a global book club and community dedicated to self-help and self-development.
Each month we choose a different title to work through with our members, both online with digital content and virtual hangouts, and offline at face-to-face meetups and author events.
It is our mission is to connect as many people as possible with books, ideas and experts that will inspire positive change in their lives. And then to connect these people with each other, because we have learned that ‘self-help’ is actually much more powerful when we come together to share the adventure.
JOIN OUR TRIBE
Shelf Help started life as a local book club in West London and in less than two years we have grown into a thriving community of THOUSANDS of like-minded souls from all over the world connecting, sharing and supporting each other through the themes of each month's titles, whether that’s online through our Instagram and Facebook pages or in real life (gasp!) at our monthly meetups and events and retreats.
It is totally FREE to join our tribe and connect with other seekers and readers around the world.
Sign up HERE to access to our empowering private Facebook community as well as get exclusive content from authors, experts and Shelf Help founder Toni, and to receive all the info on our meetups and special events.
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 our club is an open heart and an inquisitive mind…

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 meet new people and 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 real-life meetups happen on the last Monday of the month (except for Bank Holidays), and we currently have UK meetups in Bournemouth, Bristol, Central London, West London, Essex, Farnham, Manchester, Southampton, South Wales and West Yorkshire and global meetups soon starting in Amsterdam, Berlin, Canberra, Keswick (Ontario), LA, Melbourne and Sydney with plans to create HUNDREDS more around the world.
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.
