Join us for our Restorative Embodiment and Resilience: A Guide to Disrupt Habits, Create Inner Peace, Deepen Relationships and Feel Greater Presence by Alan Fogel book club hosted by Susan Hopkins starting November 11, 2021.
Every other Thursday this Fall and Winter from 3:30pm EST, Susan will host a live (and free!) Zoom chat to dive deeper and discuss your 'ah ha's from the week's chapter. These sessions won't be recorded but a summary video will be posted soon after for those who weren't able to attend the live chat, but would like to engage in the online text-based discussions in the online portion of the book club.
Alan Fogel will be joining Susan at the end of the book club for an interview and to connect over his newest book!
Restorative Embodiment and Resilience is out September 28th and you can purchase a copy of the book here. Wherever possible please support your local book stores.
