Welcome to the
Boho Berry Book Club

ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB

The Boho Berry Book Club is a meeting place to gather and talk about a different personal development book each month — and the ways it can make our lives more awesome off the page. Personal development topics can feel…well, personal, and we often can’t help but fall into the trap of taking ourselves too seriously. This group places a bright filter over those topics to make it all feel a little lighter. The Boho Berry Book Club is an opportunity to engage with self-help concepts and integrate them into our lives where it feels right, leave what doesn’t with zero guilt, and know that we have the backup and relief of a club of awesome, imperfect people figuring it out along with us. View each book, each week, each day as just a new experiment you’re conducting in living a happier life, and enjoy!

HOW IT WORKS:

A book is selected each month by poll (more on this later) and you’re free to read the book at your own pace. We want the book club to feel like a fun, light and inspiring extra in your life, not like homework!
 
A monthly spoiler post is provided for chat about the book throughout the month…to support everyone’s individual reading pace, we ask that specific, in-depth talk stays in the comments of this post.
 
A free-for-all post is provided each week for talk about other self-help books, podcasts, videos, blog posts and articles. We want the Boho Berry Book Club to be a space to share and get ideas for inspiring things to check out that you may not have come across on your own!
 
A shortcut to the discussion on our current or past books can be found by clicking the “Units” tab on the left side of the Boho Berry Book Club homepage.
 
Book Selection:
On the 1st of each month, a poll will go up in the group with possible selections for the next month’s book. You’ll have 3 days to vote for the book that you’d like us to read next, and then the winner will be announced. This gives everyone plenty of time to get the book before the next month starts.
 
Have fun!

THIS MONTH’S BOOK:

Daring Greatly by Brené Brown

Kristen, here! 

FINALLY! It seemed inevitable and yet it took over a year — we are finally reading a Brené Brown book together in the Boho Berry Book Club.

Could I have read this on my own? Certainly. But for some reason I’ve preferred to slip Daring Greatly into our monthly poll every few months, knowing that eventually, it would rise to the top — and when it did, I would greet it with open arms and finally dive in. Brené Brown is a major self-help rockstar, and this month it’s time for me to me to find out exactly why.

Now, I’m not a total Brené Brown n00b — I’ve read one of her other books, The Gifts of Imperfection, and watched her Netflix special The Call to Courage — but Daring Greatly seems to be the book where people really started freaking out about her.

Daring Greatly is about vulnerability and how it’s the underpinning factor in so many of our emotions, both pleasant and unpleasant, and how getting more comfortable with it can help us improve our lives and the lives of others. It’s about how connections are made stronger when we have the courage to let our guard down. And it’s about letting ourselves be seen as we truly are and the freedom in that.

I’m ready for that, and apparently, so are the members of the Boho Berry Book Club. Maybe you are, too. Come join us!
