BOOK CLUB

“You were created to play, engage, adventure, and explore - with others. Because while the ache of loneliness is real, it doesn’t have to be your reality.”

- Jennie Allen

 

As you may already know, two impactful lifestyle factors within Functional Medicine are relationships and spirituality. Along with nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management, these modifiable lifestyle factors are central to health and well-being. It is always our focus to address physical, mental, and spiritual wellness as we care for the whole person. For those reasons and many more, we are thrilled to announce our first book club opportunity to our current patients! If you are a patient at Ritual Functional Medicine and you’re interested in joining us for the Find Your People Book Club, please read more below and register soon. This study will be for a small group, so don’t hesitate to sign up today!

As stated on the back cover of Find Your People, “All too often we’re tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others is crucial to our mental and spiritual health. We are meant to live known and loved. And yet so many of us are hiding behind emotional walls that we’re experiencing an epidemic of loneliness. 

Find Your People offers practical solutions for creating true community in a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before. Drawing on fascinating insights from science and history, timeless biblical truth, and vulnerable stories from her own life, best-selling author Jennie Allen helps you:

  • Overcome the barriers to making new friends and learn to initiate with easy-to-follow steps.

  • Find simple ways to press through awkward to get to authentic in conversations.

  • Understand how conflict can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them.

  • Identify the type of friend you are and the types of friends you need.

  • Learn the five practical ingredients you need to have the healthy friendships you’ve always longed for.

 

In Find Your People, you’ll discover exactly how to dive into the deep end and experience the full wonder of community.”

DETAILS

With lots of excitement, we’d like to formally invite you to join us on this book club journey towards deeper community and greater health!

 

Here are all the details…

  • This is a free 7-week program

  • Starting May 2022

  • Live group Zoom sessions every Wednesday at 10 am MDT May 25-July 6

  • Participants will need to purchase the Find Your People book AND Study Guide (price approximately $35).

  • Participants will read Find Your People prior to Session 1

  • Participants will bring the completed Study Guide activities and their Bible to each session

 

Each week, you will independently:

  • Read from the Find Your People Study Guide

  • Complete a Bible Study section

  • Work through some valuable projects

 

This book club may be different than others you’ve participated in before.  You'll actually read the book prior to our first session. Together, we'll work through the Study Guide. The weekly assignment doesn’t need to be completed in one sitting - perhaps this becomes part of your quiet morning ritual for seven weeks! As Jennie makes clear, “The goal of this study is to dig deeply into Scripture and uncover how it applies to your life, to deeply engage the mind and the heart. Projects, stories, and Bible study all play a role in it. You may be drawing or journaling or interacting with others in your community. At each group meeting, you will discuss your experience in working through that week’s material.”

 

Together in our live group Zoom sessions we will:

  • Welcome and opening prayer 

  • Study discussion

  • Video teaching

  • Conversation

  • Closing 

After registering, purchase your materials and head over to Module 1 in Practice Better! There, you’ll find everything you need to get started and to be prepared for our first live session. As a reminder, you will purchase your materials AND read the full Find Your People book prior to Session 1. Then, each week, you will complete the Study Guide reading, Bible study, and projects. I look forward to seeing you and walking together in community very soon!
