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 women becoming their most authentic and radiant selves.
Have the women in your audience ever wondered what they could accomplish with the time they spend worrying about their body or appearance? In a society overwhelmed with messages of how women should be and appear, it’s easy for them to internalize these ideas and become their own harshest critics. It’s time for a change. It’s time to stop squashing women into painfully tight “should-be” boxes and celebrate their bodies for what they are—divine tools to reach our highest aspirations and experience the full fabulousness of life.
In this book, women 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 the audience examine their own thoughts and feelings about their bodies and learn how they affect the way you relate in and to the world.
With this unflinchingly direct and honest book, women will learn to release years of negative conditioning to see themselves as the fiercely authentic women they really are. It’s time for women to stop wasting time and energy hating their bodies and to start moving toward a life that celebrates their body’s unique strengths and capabilities for experiencing health, happiness, and true radiance.
