THE SOUL LIBRARY – A UNIQUE HEALING CIRCLE FOR BOOK-LOVERS & SELF-HEALERS

Since announcing my brand new membership for THE SOUL LIBRARY  I’ve received a few questions about it. 

This post covers how long each session is and how often it’s held, why it’s weekly, what kind of books we read, and the group guidelines.

HOW LONG IS EACH SESSION, & HOW OFTEN?

We meet once a week for 1.5 hrs.

WHY WEEKLY?

Growth & healing require commitment – deep, long-lasting commitment to oneself. Being part of a weekly circle is a loving, gentle reminder to stay on this path.

I adore one-off sessions & monthly circles, but in my experience, they are not sufficient to bring about lasting change. I might experience connection, internal shifts and profound insights, but without sustained daily practise, regular reminders and consistent support, I would not be able to implement change.

When trying to change old patterns & deeply ingrained habits that no longer serve us, it is often only through the consistent repetition of new behaviours that make this possible. Doing this in community can make the whole process feel more digestible, manageable and tangible. 

Our old neural pathways are deeply entrenched and never disappear completely – we need to create new ones. Establishing a new indelible imprint requires perseverance and a tender tenacity, which with the regular support of a group, becomes a much softer, more manageable practise.

Our healing and inner work is endless, which can sometimes feel intimidating and self-defeating. We don’t tend to reach a plateau of perfection.

By regularly ‘doing the work’ in an intimate community, we are gifted a deeply nurturing, nourishing flotation device whilst we do it.

Please know there is NO obligation to attend weekly 💛

Many people choose to attend 2 or 3 times a month instead.

But the option is there, to attend every week. I will be there, holding space and available for you.

IS IT ONLINE?

Yes, on Zoom. So the circle is open internationally! 

We will find a day & time to suit all time zones – currently looking at a start time of 5-7pm Monday-Saturday.

WHICH BOOKS DO YOU READ?

All our books fall under the spiritual/ self-development genre. Each one is selected by the group from a poll.

In my current group, we have read/ are reading:

 • Women who Run with the Wolves – Clarissa Estes

 • The Body Keeps the ScoreBessel van Der Kolk

 • The Inner Child Workbook – Cathryn L Taylor

 • The Wisdom of Anxiety – Sheryl Paul

 • A Return to LoveMarianne Williamson

HOW DO YOU IMPLEMENT BOUNDARIES IN THE GROUP?

We have some very gentle guidelines that ensure that whilst the conversation is flowing, everybody feels safe, is heard equally, and feels they can share without being judged.

• When someone is sharing, please allow them the space to do so and refrain from interrupting.

• After someone has shared, please refrain from offering advice. Our ‘MO’ for sharing is to share our experiences, never to offer opinion or advice (unless specifically asked for)

• Please be mindful of the length of time you share. Everyone should have the same opportunity to share.

These gentle guidelines really create a safe, intimate space where everyone can feel comfortable.

HOW TO BOOK

Membership of THE SOUL LIBRARY is priced at £25.50/ month and is available exclusively through my Patreon.

  • I will be creating a special tier for the group as soon as all the spaces are filled. This entitles you to all the rewards of my other tiers, in addition to membership of the healing circle.
  • To secure your spot beforehand, a £10 deposit is required. There are only 8 spaces available. Please email me for details how to pay, or DM me on instagram(Deposit refunded once Patreon subscription is made.)

Any questions at all, please just ask! Drop me an email here.

I’m so looking forward to welcoming you,

*NEW* THE SOUL LIBRARY – A BOOK-LOVERS WEEKLY HEALING CIRCLE

At the end of this year, I will be introducing THE SOUL LIBRARY – weekly healing circles where we journey through soul-nourishing, spiritual books together.

Our aim is not to ‘fix’ ourselves, but to make peace with the ebbs and flows of growth, of life and transitions, of being human.

In a world that seems saturated with courses and workshops that promise to fix you in a matter of hours or weeks, this circle acknowledges that the commitment to our growth and inner work is endless. We come together in circle to honour and hold space for ourselves and each other.

 • We meet once a week in a deeply nourishing, safe and loving (virtual) space, to discuss spiritual & self-development literature.

 • We read beautiful books* at a very gentle pace, sharing with each other our experiences and insights about what we’ve read each week.

 • We explore and discuss spiritual ideas, concepts and practical exercises.

 • You will be given the opportunity to share openly and freely in an attentive, non-judgmental environment.

 • You will be listened to, supported and held unconditionally.

*(We select the books as a group – each of which fall under the spirituality and self-development genre.)

This is a community where our stories no longer have to be swallowed, they can be shared.

We show up as our glorious, shining, authentic, wounded, imperfect selves and come together to form a truly unique healing circle.

 • Day & time TBC – currently looking at Mondays 7pm GMT London time. (This could possibly change to accommodate more people if necessary.)

 • Limited to 8 spaces – this allows us to build trust and intimacy within the group.

HOW TO DECIDE IF THE GROUP IS FOR YOU

This women’s healing circle could be for you if:

  • you feel alone in your personal development journey and yearn for support as you take steps to grow
  • you long for a community of like-minded individuals, also committed to their spiritual growth, but don’t know where to find them
  • you read spiritual/ self-development books already and wish you had people to discuss them with
  • you sometimes struggle to find the motivation to take the actions you know will help you
  • you crave gentle, non-coercive encouragement to stay focused on your personal growth
  • you like to read spiritual/ self-development books, but often skip past the exercises as you’ve no one else to inspire and energise you
  • you feel shy in groups of strangers/ sporadic healing circles & need familiarity and connection to share your vulnerable side
  • you belong to a 12 step fellowship and wish to read more spiritual literature to expand and deepen your existing practises

REVIEWS AND FEEDBACK

This is a replica of a group I already run, but which is now at full capacity. It’s been such a beautiful experience for everyone involved so I felt drawn to creating a new one.

Here is what some of the current members of my womxn’s healing circle have to say about belonging to the group:
