Shelf Help Monthly Meetups: The Gifts of Imperfection

This month we'll discuss February’s Book of the Month, The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown.

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do,” says Brene.

And this book is PACKED with strategies and advice to help ‘Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are."

Please complete the RSVP form if you would like to come along to a meetup this month (we currently have meetups in Marylebone, Chiswick, Essex, Southampton and Pembrokeshire).

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).

And wherever you are meeting the night will look something like the below... (NB timings vary according to each venue - we will confirm start times when we confirm your RSVP ).

6-6.30pm - arrivals/sign in/order food & drink
6.30pm - intros
6.45pm-7.30pm - questions for discussion
7.30pm - bar/loo break
7.45pm - 8.20pm - questions for discussion
8.20pm - written exercise to close

Reading the book is optional (but encouraged!) and we’ll be covering key quotes, exercises and themes from it throughout the night.

Meetups are FREE to attend but please come expecting to buy food/drink so that we can keep our lovely venues happy to host us. And RSVP is essential as spaces are limited.

Looking forward to chatting with you!
