Featured Book on June 5th

I chose this book for our online book club meeting in June because I believe this to be true:

To liberate ourselves we need to understand ourselves. To understand ourselves we need to understand where we come from. Just looking into our early childhood is not enough. We need to follow back to our roots as women beyond our own lineage into the collective history of women.

"Revelations" is a novel by the author Mary Sharratt I was waiting for it to come out and "gobbled down" in just one weekend. I love all her books. Mary does deep historic research into the lives of forgotten women and then gives them a voice and ads some 'fictional meat' to create a reader's feast for us! In this book she brings two mystics - two "mad women" - from England in the late 14th century to life. Reading this book gave me lots of glimpses into the fight for freedom, for education, for healthy motherhood, for love, for books, for freedom of faith, for respect and dignity as a woman... that shape our societies today.

This is a very special book club meeting because instead of me giving a training at the start we have author Mary Scharratt joining us live from her home in Portugal to answer your questions before in the second part we discuss it among us and bring the book to life using Intentional Creativity process facilitated by me.

Will I see you Sunday, June 5th for two hours on Zoom at 11 am PST? (That is 2 pm EST / 20 o'clock CET)

Registration opens on May 10th!

"Sylvia is a master of connecting the dots and presenting relevant information in a way that is clear and concise.
She is very generous in allowing attendance even if you haven't read the book.
In any case, with the book read or not, you are guaranteed to have an uplifting, invigorating session."

    About Your Book Club Host

Sylvia Becker-Hill loves books. Her grandfather taught her to read at a very young age before she attended school. By the age of 30 she had read over 10,000 books and had two university degrees. Wherever she lived, she had a big library and her current home in Southern California is no exception. You'll find piles of books in every room and beside her bed. For Sylvia reading is like breathing, she can't live without it.
Combine that with her over 25 years of experience as an executive coach, teacher and trainer, and you get a glimpse of why the Becker-Hill Books Book Club is not an ordinary book club rather an inspiring multi-faceted experience.

Sylvia's intention is to inspire you to read more and more importantly benefit more measurably from books in your life.

How is this book club different from other book clubs?

Because it is created by Sylvia Becker-Hill, a Rennaissance woman with a vast buffet of expertise and talents it is as unique as her. The book club will not only focus on you understanding the content and intention of the author of the book you're focusing on, rather the main intention is to bring the book alive, meaning into your life! Sylvia chooses books that she believes will empower you, your personal growth, and private and professional results when you implement the insights you gain from them. Sylvia combines in every meeting a bit of summery input with discussion and experiential exercises using tools from her vast artistic and coaching background. The Becker-Hill Book Club is also an accountability community for you to ensure you don't just read books to forget them straight away rather make the most from your investment in reading them!

Not every book Sylvia might choose for the book club is available as an audiobook. Of course, you can choose to just listen to them. And you can come to the book club meetings without having read the book because Sylvia will always give a summary of the key points. From that and the discussion with the focus on the implementation of the new insights into our lives, you will gain big benefits from the Becker-Hill Book Club even if you never read any of the books.

This is a new offering Sylvia is testing to see how her community resonates with it. Given that the world is in an intense time of messy transitions and Sylvia is committed to staying present and in the flow of what wants to unfold through her, she is committing always only to the next two dates. At the time of launching this webpage the plan is to meet on the first or second Sunday of each month for two hours from 11 am PDT to 1 pm PDT. That is 2 pm to 4 pm EDT and 20 to 22 o'clock CET. Yet this is not written into stone...
