Exploring the path to wholeness, one book at a time

Welcome to the Mill Valley Book Club, a free, online community for people seeking a deeper sense of well-being and contentment. Think of this as your virtual home in which to explore with others – through books and conversation – the places in our lives where we encounter challenges, as well as meaning and joy. At MVBC, we believe that life is sweetest when we walk our path to wholeness, sharing and learning from our experiences – together.

Here’s How It Works

The Mill Valley Book Club features a monthly book selection about some aspect of the path to wholeness, which refers to the constant seeking of a consistent state of well-being. Over time, I’ve learned that this really means finding inner peace, an elusive and surprisingly difficult thing to do; for only when I feel peaceful in my heart and soul, can I deeply experience the richness and joy that life has to offer.  That’s when I feel the love around me most activated, and that’s when gratitude springs into my spirit!

For more information, please click About. I’ll blog once a month about my reflections on the current featured book, and I invite you to comment on the blog and on one another’s comments.  Sign up in the box to the right to receive monthly email notifications of new blog posts!

Who Am I?

I’m Angie, a stay-at-home mother and aspiring author in my mid-forties.  I live in Mill Valley, CA with my wonderful husband, awesome two boys, and two big, adorable dogs.  I’ve noticed something important about myself and the other 40-something women around me:  we are searching now for a different sense of meaning and purpose in our lives than when we were younger.  As I sort out my truth as to what we are all doing here on this planet, I hope you’ll join me on the search for your own truth and walk the path to wholeness by my side!
