The Truth + Dare Book Club

We’re so tired of not finishing our books, it’s time to break the cycle. 

And girlfriend, we know you’re tired too.

You’ve got one book on the nightstand, one book in your purse, three books on the shelf, and four more in your Amazon cart.

You read a chapter in one, get distracted and open the second, glance over at the third, and call it quits before any reading even gets done…

You know (and so do we) that books have the power to inspire, heal, and transform, that’s why we bought so many in the first place.

But somewhere along the line, we put this powerful practice to the side. …don’t worry, we get it, life loves to get in the way. 

But we’ve had enough. Are you ready to stop making excuses and reconnect to reading?

WHAT IF YOU COULD….

 

Commit to a monthly goal and actually see it through.

Build a sustainable self-care practice that supports your livelihood.

Engage with a community of like-minded women who see you, hear you, and support you.

Become the person you’re striving to be – committed, focused, and dedicated to living your truth and daring to change.

Don’t worry, we’ve thought long and hard about this list…

 

The books you’ll be reading have been hand selected to help you expand your mindset, face your fears, challenge your beliefs, inspire your creativity, and help you reconnect to your true self.

 

Remember, these books are more than just words on pages.

 

They are the tools to help you live your truth and dare to change. 

 SURRENDER TO STILLNESS.

 

This isn’t your average book club.

 

We’re doing things Truth + Dare style, which means we’re going deep.

 

With each book we’ve created two powerful guided meditations to take you on a journey beyond the pages.

 

Each meditation is carefully crafted to help you embody the message, embrace stillness, and help you cultivate your own meditation practice.

You are what you listen to.

Obviously, we love to talk.

 

So naturally podcasts are part of this club.

 

A book club cannot exist without discussion around the books message, that’s why, we’re bringing you two full-length podcast conversations.

 

You can expect a detailed breakdown, chapter by chapter, of what’s happening in the material, how we’re feeling about it, and how we can apply the concepts to our daily lives.

 

Don’t worry girl, we’re covering all the bases.

Write on, sister!

It’s your turn to do the work!

 

You’ve read all the pages, you’ve listened to our meditations, and you’ve heard us rant on podcasts, now we’re passing the torch.

 

Each week, you’ll be given a themed journal prompt that will take you through the book.

 

We’ve crafted each prompt specifically to help you dive deeper into the concepts and connect the dots.

 

Sharpen your pencils, you’re the author now.

It’s always better when we’re in it together.

 

We get sisterhood. That’s why we’re here.

 

There is nothing more powerful than a group of women coming together…

 

This is why we’ve created a private Facebook group.

 

Here you can foster community, participate in conscious conversation, share your ah-ha moments and breakthroughs, and connect with your fellow readers.

THE TESTIMONIALS ARE IN 

Here’s what ladies are saying about the Book Club

“I love being a part of the TAD book club community! Not only has it connected me with an amazing & supportive group of women but it has helped me stay accountable for the books I have always wanted to read! This is such a great, inspiring group to be a part of & I feel like it has helped me learn, grow and heal.”

Shannon Donahue

“The Truth & Dare Book Club changed what I thought typically of traditional book clubs. This book club opens your eyes, stimulates your mind, and connects you to so many beautiful souls! The books have you look inward and the meditations and weekly journal prompts really help you work through all that is coming up – it’s been an invaluable journey.”

Jasmin Rams

“It has been eye-opening to discover the harmonies between the books and how it has influenced my day-to-day existence. Oh that glorious feedback loop! I’m still startled at how often I see it in action. The improvements I see most in myself since joining the book club are on a mindfulness level, but the force of these conscious transformations has given me exactly what I need to continue living my truth and daring to change.”

Ashleigh Rockwell

“Not only have I already finished way more books this year than I did in the last 2 years combined, but I’ve really been able to dig into the material and immediately begin applying it to my life. At first I was super hesitant about journaling (weren’t we all?), but now it’s something I look forward to each week and I’ve even begun a gratitude journal and some free writing when the mood hits me – a healthy habit I never would have picked up had it not been for this amazing book club!”

Candi Block

“Wow, it’s difficult to express how much I love this book club! I’ve recently moved to a new city, started a new job, my husband and I are now empty-nesters, and I feel a bit lost in my new life. Having this community of sisters to share with, learn from, and grow with has been so inspiring. Allie and Carly bring a sincere approach to learning and mastering the concepts in their carefully curated book list. They are warm and welcoming, and obviously spend the time to craft the materials and share insights with the group. It is well worth the investment in me and my personal growth. And I’m finishing the damn books (most of them anyway)!”

Katie Whitman

“I wasn’t sure when I first signed up to the book club whether it would be worth it or not, but I absolutely love it. Not only is it making me finish books, but it really makes me think about them too! I love the journal prompts, meditations and podcasts. But the best part is discussing the books and any thoughts and feelings that come up along the way with the private Facebook group. I feel like I can truly be myself.”

Katy Parker

“Each book has moved me out of my comfort zone in some way.  I have begun exploring new activities, changed mental thought patterns that have been holding me back and learned to look at my relationships differently. I have “aha” moments regularly! The Facebook group is also amazing. I have grown to feel so close with the women inside and I always have that space where I can open up and be myself. Then there are the podcasts and meditations. I feel like I can touch your souls when I listen to them.”

Robyn Youngjohn

” I never would’ve imagined the impact a book could make. I’m 5 months in and amazed. I now believe in the capability that people can change because I am my own living proof of that. The take away from each book is immense. My toolbox is overflowing. The Truth + Dare Book Club embodies movement. I am living my truth. I am daring to change. Thank you sistas!

Q: Are the books included in the price?

The books are not included, womp, womp. You will be required to secure your own book each month, whether it be through Prime shipping, a local bookstore, free at your library, or previously owned and loved by another…. we don’t judge, but do get your hands on them!

Q: What if I’ve already read the book? Will I still benefit by joining?

Absolutely girlfriend! We believe the second (or third) read is even more powerful than the first, offering greater perspective and a deeper understanding of the material, while giving you an opportunity to reflect on where you once were and where you are now. And hey, why not recycle that beautiful book again and again?

Q: Life is hectic, how much time will I need to set aside?

Hell yes it’s hectic, otherwise we wouldn’t be here, motivating you to finish your damn books with us! But in all honesty, this is a go-at-your-own-pace experience. It will differ for everyone because each of us reads at a different pace. To stick with the recommended calendar, it will require 5 (ish) hours of effort, including the weekly activities too.

Q: What if I want to cancel my membership?

Cancel, say whattttt?! We understand if you need to say goodbye, that’s why we’ve built in two money-back guarantee options for you. If you choose the annual membership, you’ll have 30 days to decide if this book club is the right fit. If you choose the monthly membership, you can cancel at anytime, BUT, you won’t be able to join again at any time. Now let’s forget we even had this conversation, deal?

Q: How long will I have access to the content? Will my membership expire? 

Forever and ever. Yup, that means lifetime access is what you receive. We want you to enjoy the process, revisit the content, read the book a second, third, and dare we say fourth time, so the content is yours, for forever.

Q: How is the content delivered?

Great question, especially because we all learn differently. You can purchase the book in print form, on a digital device (like a Kindle), or on audio, you do you girlfriend. The meditations are guided audio tracks with dreamy, relaxing music in the background. The podcast conversations are audio files, as expected. The journal prompts are open-ended questions delivered via a PDF.  And your accountability comes in the form of written emails and conversation starters inside the private Facebook group.

Q: How does the Facebook community work?

Like the ultimate, supportive sisterhood, that’s how. This is a private, members only Facebook group that’s visible to only you, me, and your fellow readers. There will be conscious conversations threads posted by us, plus conversations among each other to share your aha-moments, seek support, ask questions, and form new friendships. And if you don’t do Facebook, it’s not required, so don’t fret over it.

Q: Will Allie and Carly be active in the group?

Absofreakinglutely. You can’t get rid of us that easily. We will be present on a weekly (sometimes daily basis) to share our personal findings, support your aha-moments and breakthroughs, offer advice, and deepen the overall experience and sisterhood.

Q: Will I miss out if I buy now and have to start later?

Absolutely not! This is the reason you receive lifetime access and are encouraged to DO YOU, so long as you finish that damn book! We get it. Life is all consuming and sometimes, we fall behind (okay, we fall behind a lot). And the last thing we want, is for you to miss out on living your truth and daring to change. So whether life is just right or a hot mess, we invite you to come join us and be part of this experience!

Do you have a burning desire to grow, evolve, and explore who you are? Are you ready to challenge your present beliefs and finish a damn book? Is it time to unlock your hidden potential through the power of words?

Then this book club is what you have been waiting for.

 

Join us, read alongside us, have meaningful conversations with us, gain clarity and a healthy mindset, join a sisterhood with a unified purpose, and most importantly – come finish your books with us!
