Join the Book Club!

Welcome to the club.  Our Book Club is free to join.

Thinking differently is an act of courage.

The Courage Tribe’s public book club meets every other month at Crows Feet  Commons* in Bend, Oregon.   The folks behind the counter will point you to our meeting spot.  In warm weather you’ll find us just outside.  [A limited amount of each selected title will be available for purchase locally at Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe in downtown Bend.]
We’d love for you to email to let us know you plan to attend.  Thanks!
*Crow’s Feet Commons purchases not included.

The why of our book club:

We meet to discuss thought provoking titles as a community (non-fiction) that aim for the heart of us humans as we elevate in life.   Titles are selected to purposely shine a new light on societal norms for personal heart-centered reflection.  You may/may not agree with what’s between the pages of a particular title, but we encourage your thoughts/discussion either way as we dive into the concepts.  The idea is to get people’s juices flowing among a compassionate, courage-centered community of participants.  Join as we discuss life together!  Feel free to bring a friend.
Want to come, but you haven’t finished the book?  Come anyway!  Enjoy insights as you participate in the community.

Book description from

“An extraordinary book that will dramatically change the way you experience life.
Finite games are the familiar contests of everyday life, the games we play in business and politics, in the bedroom and on the battlefield — games with winners and losers, a beginning and an end. Infinite games are more mysterious — and ultimately more rewarding. They are unscripted and unpredictable; they are the source of true freedom.
In this elegant and compelling work, James Carse explores what these games mean, and what they can mean to you. He offers stunning new insights into the nature of property and power, of culture and community, of sexuality and self-discovery, opening the door to a world of infinite delight and possibility.
“An extraordinary little book . . . a wise and intimate companion, an elegant reminder of the real.”
— Brain/Mind Bulletin”
