Have you ever wondered what you could accomplish while worrying about your body or appearance? In a society overwhelmed with messages of how women should be and appear, it’s easy to internalize these ideas and become our harshest critics. It’s time for a change. It’s time to stop squashing ourselves into painfully tight “should-be” boxes and celebrate our bodies for what they are—divine tools to reach our highest aspirations and experience the full fabulousness of life.
In this podcast, you’ll find a practical program for healing body image dissatisfaction using a unique blend of wisdom—from yoga to Buddhism, Taoism to shamanism. Weaving the author’s experiences with tools for putting lessons into action, this empowering book will help you examine your thoughts and feelings about your body and learn how they affect how you relate in and to the world.
With this unflinchingly direct and honest book, you’ll learn to release years of negative conditioning to see yourself as the fiercely authentic woman you are. So, stop wasting time and energy hating your body and start moving toward a life that celebrates your body’s unique strengths and capabilities for experiencing health, happiness, and true radiance.
