Book Study

If you live in the Las Vegas area, come and join a motivated and powerful group of women on a journey of empowerment.

Empowering Women Book Study is an opportunity to connect with like-minded women to form friendships and a support network, to clear up areas in your life in which you may be struggling, to create a different vision for your future, and to commit to taking action to make that vision a reality.

Each session will be led by me, Nadia J Charles, transformational life coach and hypnotherapist and each session will guide you using the books we read to make real and impactful change in your life, relationships, career, finances, and emotional and spiritual well-being.

Book Twelve - Starting Mar 3rd, 2021

Weeks: Wednesday March 3rd, 2021 - Wednesday June 9th, 2021, we will be studying Discovering The Inner Mother: A Guide to Healing the Mother Wound and Claiming Your Personal Power and the eBook can be purchased here or by clicking the image.

Sure to become a classic on female empowerment, a groundbreaking exploration of the personal, cultural, and global implications of intergenerational trauma created by patriarchy, how it is passed down from mothers to daughters, and how we can break this destructive cycle.

Why do women keep themselves small and quiet? Why do they hold back professionally and personally? What fuels the uncertainty and lack of confidence so many women often feel? In this paradigm-shifting book, leading feminist thinker Bethany Webster identifies the source of women’s trauma. She calls it the Mother Wound—the systemic disenfranchisement of women by the patriarchy—and reveals how this cycle is perpetuated by wounded mothers who unconsciously pass on damaging beliefs and behaviors to their daughters.

In her workshops, online courses, and talks, Webster has helped countless women re-examine their lives and their relationships with their mothers, giving them the vocabulary to voice their pain, and encouraging them to share their experiences. In this manifesto and self-help guide, she offers practical tools for identifying the manifestations of the Mother Wound in our daily life and strategies we can use to heal ourselves and prevent our daughters from enduring the same pain. In addition, she offers step-by-step advice on how to reconnect with our inner child, grieve the mother we didn’t have, stop people-pleasing, and, ultimately, transform our heartache and anger into healing and self-love.

Revealing how women are affected by the Mother Wound, even if they don’t personally identify as survivors, Discovering the Inner Mother revolutionizes how we view mother-daughter relationships and gives us the inspiration and guidance we need to improve our lives and ultimately create a more equitable society for all.
