Women Who Run with the Wolves Episode 6

The six women discuss feedback they’ve received from episode one through five based on their discussions of “Women Who Run with the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. They also call themselves out on times they were insensitive and speak about their privilege.  Between laughing at their own mothers’ responses to the podcast, debating suggestions of the male version of “Women Who Run with the Wolves”, diving deep into the self help industry and trying to answer whether we need to fix ourselves, they are honest about their views and their lives. They ultimately discover how important storytelling is in all environments.  Discussion Points: Kim reflecting on the group’s Coyote Dick conversation and possible insensitivity/the importance of coyote as the trickster in indigenous cultures in storytelling Storytelling as a valid form of education Acknowledging the group’s privilege in regards to discussion of the Ugly Duckling - not everyone can pick their group The book interrupted members’ mothers’ and mother-in-laws’ support and feedback Meredith’s Down The Rabbit Hole blog every Sunday and responses to it Lindsay’s feedback about episode three and not being a mom in a group of mothers Suggestions of male versions of Women Who Run with the Wolves and discussion on whether it fits: “The Way of the Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire” by David Deida; “I Don't Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression” by Terrence Real; “The Four Agreements: A Practical ...

Talking to Strangers Episode 3

The Book Interrupted women share their personal journals while reading “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell. So many things to talk about with this book in the group chat: default to truth, relationships, oppression, the Holy Fool and more.   Discussion Points: Personal journals The illusion of asymmetric insight - do you think you know more about someone else than they do about you? The Holy Fool Do you default to truth? Relationships and red flags - do you see the truth when there are signs that they are lying? Data versus interactions - how much does personal interaction change the way you interpret data? How does race and gender oppression affect sentencing and assessment of situations? Was this book upsetting to you? Group enhancements - do you follow the group? Love and marriage Mentioned on this episode of Book Interrupted: Book Interrupted Website  Book Interrupted YouTube Channel Book Interrupted Facebook Book Club Group Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know by Malcolm Gladwell Malcolm Gladwell Books Revisionist History Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari Untamed by Glennon Doyle ...
