FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY IMPERFECT COURAGE? This book has something for everyone wherever they are practicing their courage, including for those of us that are working up the courage to practice our courage. :) The messiness and imperfection of our practice is important to explore as it’s the heart of the practice far more than the highlight reel moments of our bravery. We love to talk about the brave moments but the messiness involved in actually creating those brave moments is essential to making genuine friends with our courage.
I CAN READ A BOOK IN A MONTH OR LESS. WHY SO LONG? For several reasons.
Book clubs are woven into the fabric of our lives and day-to-day responsibilities, leading us to ebb and flow in our reading and content digestion.
We all read at different paces. This community is designed to welcome everyone’s engagement no matter their pace. The reading schedule is simply a guide for our discussion; you are welcome to read at a pace best suited to you and your life.
Immersion time. Integrated learning is vital to the heart of the TCP Book Club’s purpose. Reading awakens us yet allowing time for integration is where empowering change can take place. This is what we mean when we say things like ‘this book is powerful, this book changed me.’ So read, take it in, and give yourself permission to intentionally integrate into your life what you are learning.
WILL THE DISCUSSIONS BE RECORDED? No, the open discussions within this community are designed to serve as sacred, inclusive, compassionate space where free thought, perspective, and questions can flow in the present moment without reservation.
WHERE ELSE BEYOND THE VIRTUAL SESSIONS CAN I ENGAGE? Our FB group is the perfect place to engage on a day-to-day basis. Share what you’re learning, pose questions, offer a quote you love from the reading. You may also share comments and thoughts within the discussion prompt area. (This is available for those who have social media access limitations yet no website limitations during the day.)
WHAT ARE THE FEES TO JOIN TCP BOOK CLUB? Just the cost of the book if you elect to purchase it rather than borrow from you local library. You can buy a copy here.
MAY I SHARE THIS BOOK CLUB WITH A FRIEND? Absolutely. Your friend(s) can join us anytime between now and October 16th. The community will close for this book discussion on October 16th. Invite them into the FB group to get started.
WHY DID THE COURAGE PRACTICE START A BOOK CLUB? When we bear witness to the courage in others, even in writing, it reinvigorates and empowers our own practice of courage, wherever most meaningful to us. Check out this blog post for more.
GOT ANOTHER QUESTION? Throw it out in our private Facebook group anytime. Someone else may have the same question so don’t hesitate.
