Hallelujah Anyway, Rediscovering Mercy by Anne Lamott
A Mind at Home with Itself, How Asking Four Questions Can Free Your Mind, Open Your Heart, and Turn Your World Around by Byron Katie
We’ll begin the fall season with HALLELUJAH ANYWAY, Rediscovering Mercy by beloved bestselling author, Anne Lamott. For years, Lamott has been a companion and guide for those who want to live with kindness and grace, even when messy, human imperfection is all we have to work with. As she illustrates in her newest book, mercy helps.
In Session 2 we’ll explore the much anticipated new title from Byron Katie: A MIND AT HOME WITH ITSELF, How Asking Four Questions Can Free Your Mind, Open Your Heart, and Turn Your World Around. As past members of Yoga Book Club know, Byron Katie can change your perspective permanently. She offers tools for profound spiritual awakening, as well as for loving the life you have.

The Yoga Book Club with Cory feels like a weekly retreat, like I went to Kripalu with some dear friends except it’s Thursday and I am at the rec center! If you need (and who doesn’t) a place to focus on building happiness, strength, and love for yourself look no further.
– Nancy Joyce, Wellesley resident
Yoga book club with Cory is an amazing experience. Cory has an innate ability to connect with others and help people to access their own deeper truths. I have grown more resilient emotionally and more compassionate and insightful because of yoga book club. I recommend it highly to anyone who is interested in personal growth!
– L. Landers, Wellesley
I tend to read a book and forget the title, definitely the author and can barely remember the ending without some help. And with self-help books I maybe jot down a couple of key ideas to try to remember. But with Yoga Book Club you get to live through the book for a few weeks, discuss it, practice yoga around it and meditate on it. It really starts to sink into your life.
