Book Group: I Thought It Was Just Me

I Thought It Was Just Me, by Brene Brown.
This is a co-ed book group that is part circle and part guided discussion focusing on Shame.

Why a book group on shame?
Guilt is someone feeling that they’ve done something bad, and shame is a separate emotion where people believe they are bad. Shame separates us from one another, and it’s this separation that makes shame so particularly toxic to our being.

Shame is a self-sealing proposition. As shame disconnects and silences us, our shame becomes a secret, and secrets are where our shadow and toxicity lies. The challenge with shame is the feeling itself makes it unsafe for us to share the shame with others. It erodes our trust in ourselves and others.

Learn about shame, how it manifests in your life, how it impacts your joy, and how it shapes your relationships. As a group we will learn how to work with shame in a safe and nurturing environment.
