Overview

For women who’ve learned to be their own worst enemies, this in-your-face guide offers powerful tools to break free from the cultural messages that feed negative body image and stand in the way of becoming your most authentic and radiant self.

Have you ever wondered what you could accomplish with the time you spend 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 own 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 book, you’ll find a practical program for healing body image dissatisfaction using a unique blend of wisdom—from yoga to Buddhism and Taoism to shamanism and more. Weaving the author’s own experiences with tools for putting lessons into action, this empowering book will help you examine your own thoughts and feelings about your body and learn how they affect the way 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 really 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.
