Order it now on Amazon: Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger
"In the year 2018, it seems as if women’s anger has suddenly erupted into the public conversation. But long before Pantsuit Nation, before the Women’s March, and before the #MeToo movement, women’s anger was not only politically catalytic—but politically problematic. The story of female fury and its cultural significance demonstrates the long history of bitter resentment that has enshrouded women’s slow rise to political power in America, as well as the ways that anger is received when it comes from women as opposed to when it comes from men.
With eloquence and fervor, Rebecca tracks the history of female anger as political fuel—from suffragettes marching on the White House to office workers vacating their buildings after Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Here Traister explores women’s anger at both men and other women; anger between ideological allies and foes; the varied ways anger is perceived based on its owner; as well as the history of caricaturing and delegitimizing female anger; and the way women’s collective fury has become transformative political fuel—as is most certainly occurring today. She deconstructs society’s (and the media’s) condemnation of female emotion (notably, rage) and the impact of their resulting repercussions." -

Order it now on Amazon: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
"Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy." -

About the Book Club...
✤In order to join the club you must be a member of Badass Butterfly Training. Please, go to the membership page and choose your favorite membership level.✤
Welcome to the Badass Butterfly’s Moonlight Book Club. Book Club is another tool for you to increase your Badassery and participate in community with like-minded Souls. I call this ‘Moonlight’ book club because my personal transformation follows the course of the Moon and I consider her to be my very own personal Spirit Guide (and yours, too, of course!)
The books we're reading in the club are meant to inspire transformation and awakening at the level of our Soul so that we can thrive in the material world.
Each month, I choose an easy but powerful book for us to study as a collective. Participating is easy.
Step 1: Sign up to register your participation for the month. This will keep you in the loop and make sure you get updates. (You have to be a member of Badass Butterfly Training to do that).
Step 3: Join the Badass Butterfly Tribe Facebook Group. We’ll be sharing our progress through the reading and exercises in that group. Over the course of the month, we’ll work at our own individual paces, but we have our online Badass Butterfly where we can share our progress for help and collaboration.
Step 4: Get to work! Read the book and do the exercises. Share your progress in the Badass Butterfly Tribe. Tell your story, make some friends, and enjoy the camaraderie.
Step 5: Join the LIVE discussion (after having signed up for membership.) We’ll meet as a group on the 4th Sunday of every month to discuss the book and the work we’ve done on it. You can access the LIVE meeting with video or by phone. If you cannot attend the LIVE group meeting, don’t worry. It will be recorded and available for you to watch on your own. You can also submit your input and perspectives ahead of time if you want to have them included in the dialogue.
NOTE: Remember that you participation in Book Club is optional. The book, the community, the LIVE sessions and the replay are here for you to use AS YOU WANT.
To participate in the LIVE discussion, you have to be a member of Badass Butterfky Training, after that you just register for the event to confirm your participation, and you’ll get all the information how to attend the LIVE group meeting. Again, don’t worry if you cannot attend LIVE because you’ll be sent a replay so that you can watch later if you want. Registration will make sure you will always be sent the reading selection for each month.
To get the most out of the group, you should join the Badass Butterfly Tribe as we’ll be having discussions and sharing our progress there. Your participation in the book club and Facebook community are the benefits of membership. Come with a willingness to learn and share.
Book Club is an important part of Badass Butterfly Training, and you will be automatically enrolled in Book Club with your membership. You do not have to attend any of the meetings or participate in Book Club in any way. BUT it is there for you if you ever want to join the meeting, read the book, or watch the replay at your leisure, it will be at your training page. If you want to join the live session then you must sign up for the live call and you will be emailed the calling information, but remember it is all in your leisure.
See you at the meeting!
