Inspired by listening to the wonderful 'Breakfast minus the bullshit' show run by Julie Creffield, Helen Pritchard & Gemma Went on Clubhouse this morning, I've made a note of all the fabulous books they and their listeners have recommended. Some of these are novels - but with inspiring & sometimes secret life changing undertones.
Our book club will run on Clubhouse so make sure you join our Boosting Berkshire Facebook group to keep updated.
So straight in we go...
The Women who run with Wolves
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
In the classic Women Who Run With The Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes tells us about the 'wild woman', the wise and ageless presence in the female psyche that gives women their creativity, energy and power. For centuries, the 'wild woman' has been repressed by a male-orientated value system which trivialises women's emotions. Using a combination of time-honoured stories and contemporary casework, Estes reveals that the 'wild woman' in us is innately healthy, passionate and wise.
Thoughtfully written and compelling in its arguments, Women Who Run With The Wolves gives readers a new sense of direction, a self confidence and purpose in their lives. Buy from Amazon
Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result.
