Not a member of Pastebin yet? Sign Up, it unlocks many cool features!
- What to expect:
- - Twitter DM conversations about the book in between video calls
- - Video call discussions 2 PM PDT on Saturday March 30, April 13, and April 27 (I'll send out a video link before the call)
- - If you can't make a call that's ok, no need to give a head's up! I'll try to type up some notes in the DM chat summarizing the discussion and you can contribute there
- - Schedule for calls:
- -- Parts 1 and 2 by March 30
- -- Parts 3 and 4 by April 13
- -- Part 5 by April 27
- - You can read ahead and you're welcome to join calls if you haven't read, just keep in mind the schedule will dictate the topic of that call.
- Ideas on what you can talk about:
- - Quote passages you find insightful and describe why
- - Pose questions the book brought up for you, to see if members have insight
- - Tell stories of how you've applied lessons from the book (see code of conduct rule #4)
- - Share related resources that could bring added insight to a book's passage
- - ... and more! So long as it's focused on the book, you're good!
- Book club code of conduct
- 1. Try to use "I" statements - ground what you say in your own experience, even when offering advice. This helps us not assume what others have gone through and avoid hasty generalizations.
- 2. Ask if someone's open to feedback before giving them advice. Sometimes people just want to share a story or opinion without getting advice.
- 3. Remember this space is not confidential, so be aware of that when you share. I do ask that members try to be polite around sharing-- don't share any screenshots of others' contributions without their consent, for instance. Or when you talk about the group with others, try to ground that mostly in your contributions.
- 4. This is a book on trauma, so I imagine we all know about the dangers of triggers. It's okay to mention your trauma at a high level, but please avoid going into details about the trauma itself-- instead, focus on your psychological symptoms and recovery. If anyone requests that you stop, take that seriously.
- 5. In general, aim to be nice and respectful! I do reserve the right to boot anyone out for any reason, but so far that's never been an issue in groups so long as members stick to the above.
- Amazon link to book: https://www.amazon.com/Body-Keeps-Score-Healing-Trauma/dp/0143127748/ref=asc_df_0143127748/
- Looking forward to it! <3
