Your Best Self Book Club

When: Wednesday, July 24 at 6 PM
Where: Dog-Eared Books Loft

Welcome to Your Best Self Book Club, where we read and discuss nonfiction books geared toward living and working to our highest potential! This club is facilitated by a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) in personal growth and professional development, and even those who haven’t read the book will still be able to fully participate in the conversation.

At our next meeting, we’ll examine The Well-Lived Life by Gladys McGarey.

Dr. Gladys McGarey, cofounder of the American Holistic Medical Association, began her medical practice at a time when women couldn’t even have their own bank accounts. Over the past sixty years, she has pioneered a new way of thinking about disease and health that has transformed the way we imagine health care and self-care around the world.

On these pages, Dr. McGarey shares her six actionable secrets to enjoying lives that are long, happy, and purpose-driven:

Spend your energy wildly: How to embrace your life fully and feel motivated every day.
All life needs to move: How to move—spiritually, mentally, and physically—to help let go of trauma and other roadblocks.
You are here for a reason: How to find the everyday “juice” that helps you stay oriented in your life’s purpose.
You are never alone: How to build a community that’s meaningful to you.
Everything is your teacher: Discover the deep learnings that come from pain and setbacks.
Love is the most powerful medicine: Learn to love yourself—and others—into healing.

In a voice that is both practical and inspiring, Dr. McGarey shares her own extraordinary stories and eternal wisdom—from her early childhood in India and a chance encounter with Mahatma Gandhi to her life as a physician and a mother of six, to her survival of both heartbreak and illness. Dr. Gladys shares her inspiring vision for a healthier and more joyful future for us all, filled with “rich and complex truths that will resonate with readers’ hearts and minds” (Dr. Robert Waldinger, New York Times bestselling author).

This club meets 4 times a year on Wednesdays at 6 PM. Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us July 24 for a thoughtful discussion about The Well-Lived Life by Gladys McGarey. This book club is free to anyone who wishes to participate. No registration necessary.

Also, for 20 minutes after each club meeting, you will receive 20% off all books and merchandise!
