Many of us have a complicated relationship with our body. Maybe you've been made to feel ashamed of your body or that it isn't good enough. Maybe your body is riddled with stress, pain, or the effects of trauma. Maybe you think of your body as an accessory to what you believe you really are—your mind. Whatever the reason, many of us don't feel at home in our bodies. But being disconnected from ourselves as bodies means being disconnected from truly living and from the divinely created fabric that weaves us all together.

Psychologist and award-winning researcher Hillary McBride explores the ways we inherit a broken and unhealthy understanding of the body and offers a more compassionate, healthy, and holistic perspective on embodied living. Weaving together illuminating research, stories from her work as a therapist, and deeply personal narratives of healing—from a life-threatening eating disorder, a near-fatal car accident, and chronic pain—McBride invites us to reclaim the wisdom of the body and to experience the wholeness that has been there all along. End-of-chapter questions and practices are included.
