Hi Brooke! I joined Scholars on Saturday and really had the time to dig in yesterday. I am so excited and greatful that you have put everything together in this way. My short strory- I’ve read most all of the authors that you mention over the last 20 years. I’ve had years and years of therapy. These things had a huge impact in my life, and I’m ready for the next level. I’ve been in 12 step meetings for overeating several times through the years and I’ve lost 100lbs twice. Each time I left it was because I slipped and couldn’t get it back. Up until this year, I’ve always been so hard on myself that it was me stepping on myself when I feel down. Late last year, I was introduced to the work of Kristen Neff and Brenee Brown and I feel positive that this cleared the way for me to be introduced to your work. I can clearly see how each step has led to the next. I am ready to do this work! I am ready to lose the 60lbs that I have regained, find a solid sense of confidence and live my life ON PURPOSE! Thank you!!
