The Living in Love Book Club is a healing support group and mentorship program for black women to dive deep, explore and manifest all aspects of love. Self LOVE, Relationship LOVE, Divine LOVE, Cultural LOVE, Friendship LOVE, Creative LOVE are just a few of the topics we will review and celebrate in this empoWOMBment space. Bell Hooks’ book ‘All about love: New visions’ will guide the conversations each session.
‘When greedy consumption is the order of the day, dehumanisation becomes acceptable. Then, treating people like objects is not only acceptable but is required behaviour.’ Bell Hooks. All About Love.
For many of us with low self esteem, compulsive consumerism is how we show the world that we are worthy. Having or pursuing the best phones and trainers, the biggest cars, bling and houses can often be the external ways we try to build a mask of confidence whilst hiding our hurt. Trouble is, without doing the inner work, there will always be something else you think you need in order to maintain the external fantasy.
In this session, we’ll explore the emotions underneath our communities’ compulsive need to consume along with tools to help you rebuild your confidence and self esteem from the inside out.
If you’re willing to do the internal work, the benefits of this program include:
- Understanding the impact of internalised racism on your ability to love and be loved.
- Solution focused self love tools.
- Understanding and processing emotions.
- An increased sense of belonging.
- More confidence in relationships.
- Stronger personal boundaries.
- Increased self acceptance.
You will also get access to a private Facebook group for aftercare sistahood support. Come and awaken your divine feminine!
