New Book Group!
Are you looking for something fun and engaging to do in the deep freeze that is Minnesota winter? Join the MWP Self of the Therapist Book Group. We offer the opportunity for therapists to connect with each other and grow professionally and personally through reading and discusion. In today’s busy digital world, take some time to connect face to face as a form of self-care.
The MWP Self of the Therapist Book Group will meet monthly. Our first meeting is Friday, March 22nd, at Claddaugh Coffee from 10am-12pm. The book we are starting with is The Empath’s Survival Guide by Judith Orloff, MD. Plan to have the book read for our first meeting.
An excerpt about the book from Amazon.com: What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? “Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Judith Orloff, MD. “But for empaths, it goes much further. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.” With The Empath’s Survival Guide, Dr. Orloff offers a practical tool-set to help sensitive people develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world—while fully embracing the empath’s gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.
We will decide as a group what to read next. We hope you can join us! Please email Analisa or Farren with any questions and to RSVP.
