Book Study Circle with Joanne Franchina

Inner Compass Academy is pleased to present a new kind of book circle for spiritual seekers who want to delve a little more deeply into their studies.... 

Are you discovering the joys of a holistic approach to life through mind, body and spirit? Do you want to cultivate greater awareness and explore new ways of being? Are you ready to take the next step towards personal transformation and spiritual growth? If you also like self-help books and the idea of working through them alongside others who are on a similar path, this circle may be a perfect fit for you! 

The Book Study Circle will feature interactive, self-study books and workbooks that guide the reader through a progression of insights and experiences. Yet rather than reading an entire book before discussing it, these books will be read and discussed in sections. For example, each week a single chapter may be assigned, giving participants more time to work through the exercises and share their personal insights. And because our facilitator brings to these circles a wealth of experience as an intuitive life coach and spiritual mentor, many sessions will include group processes of her own design to enhance the reading materials. 

Each series will focus on a single book, and the number of sessions will depend on the way the book is organized. Typically, we will have an opening session to introduce participants to the main ideas in the book and our approach to studying it; one session for each major topic in the book; and possibly a final session dedicated to wrapping up our personal growth experiences from the book. 

We have selected a title and dates for the first series in our Book Study Circle: Unlock the Secret Messages of Your Body! by Denise Linn, scheduled for January-February 2020. And we are considering the following titles for later in the year:  

  • Your Hands Can Heal You: Pranic Healing Energy Remedies to Boost Vitality and Speed Recovery from Common Health Problems by Master Stephen Co & Eric B. Robins, M.D
  • The Four-Fold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer and Visionary by Angeles Arrien
  • Your Heart's Desire: Instructions for Creating the Life You Really Want by Sonia Choquette
  • Sacred Signs: Hear, See & Believe Messages from the Universe by Adrian Calabrese
  • The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron
  • Love Yourself, Heal Your Life Workbook by Louise Hay
  • Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential by Caroline Myss
  • High Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become that Way by Brendon Burchard
We welcome your suggestions for subsequent circle series too! Please submit any additional book titles, authors, or topics you would like to explore in depth; vote for the titles above that hold your greatest interest; and include potential days/times that generally work best for you (or days/times that you absolutely cannot meet). 
Answer your soul’s calling to explore the wisdom within these books, and enjoy insightful discussions with soulful community. 

Unlock the Secret Messages of Your Body! by Denise Linn

Who is ready to participate in a jump-start program for radiant health and glorious vitality?
