Description

This Month and Next Month's Book: " The Body Keeps The Score" - Dr. Bessel van der Kolk

Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence.

Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors.

In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust.

He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity.

Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.


The Book Club is open to everyone and is designed to help women* start and continue down a path of discovery, learning, and growth with other positive women. As a community, we find that continually exposing ourselves to new ideas and perspectives is a necessary component and the secret ingredient to growth and self-development. We encourage you to come with an open mind; read the books that you believe will help you discover, learn, and grow; and share your personal experiences and wisdom in a safe and supportive space.

In partnership with The Sage Sisters Book Club, you can expect discussions of self-development books on the 3rd Wednesday (on Zoom) of each month.  The new book will be announced at the previous month's event.

This program is also presented in partnership with Rowan Tree, a co-working and co-growth community in Herndon, Virginia that is focused on women and open to all. Rowan Tree offers a wide variety of online professional programming and well-living space. Learn more about Rowan Tree.
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon)

How can so many women feel "good and mad" yet still reluctant to speak up in a meeting or difficult conversation? Why do women often feel like they're too much--and, at the same time, not enough? What causes us, at the most critical moments in our lives, to freeze?

Kasia Urbaniak teaches power to women--and her answers to these questions may surprise you. Based on insights from her experiences as a dominatrix, her training to become a Taoist nun, and the countless women she has taught to expand their influence, this book offers precise, practical instruction in how to stand in your power, find your voice, and use it well.

Learn how to:  
•  Embrace your desires as the pathway to your destiny.  
•  Ask for--and get--what you need in your life, work, and in the bedroom.  
•  Skillfully navigate hearing "no" and any resistance, even your own.  
•  Flip power dynamics when someone crosses your boundaries and puts you on the spot.  
•  Create new and expanded roles for the people in your life with precise, targeted asks.

Whether you're getting crystal clear on exactly what you want, or turning the tables on a man who has shut you up and shut you down, Urbaniak's methods teach women to stand for themselves in every interaction.

Part manual, part manifesto, part behind the scenes look, Unbound is a how-to guide to the impossible, the outrageous, the unimaginable--a field guide to living your wildest, best, and most satisfying life.
