What if I don’t have much time or interest in reading?
Though reading even parts of the book will help your own experience to be more meaningful, it is not mandatory. When applicable, I will do my best to offer alternative readings/short videos/podcasts on similar topics. If helpful, you are welcome to listen to an audio-version of the book. Or you can simply join in the discussion from your own experiences of the topics discussed.
How much will it cost? And will the book be included in the fee?
Fees will change depending on the number of sessions in the series. Please contact me, or check out the Groups & Classes page on Realign Wellness Centre website for more information about a specific Book Club series.
Payment for the full series via e-transfer prior to the first meeting will be preferred. However please feel free to let me know if you would like to discuss alternate arrangements (ie per session payment, credit card payments).
The book will not be included in the fee for the series. However again, please let me know if you have difficulty getting the book. We can look into options together.
What about Confidentiality?
I typically invoke what I call a modified “Vegas Rule”* in my groups – and ask that participants respect the privacy of each member who attends. While it is totally acceptable and understandable to want to share your own experience of Book Club with friends and family, I ask that you not share the names & stories of other participants without their consent. We will go over this more fully in the first meeting.
*Vegas Rule = “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”
