How much do you enjoy your body? If you’re anything like me… Even the question itself would make me shut down and want to crawl under the covers. What do you mean, how much I enjoy my body? If I lost 10 lbs, I would enjoy it more. For years, my love for my body… Ahem… Not “love” — my tolerating of my body was completely conditional on whether that said body complied with and conformed to the expectations that I had of it. Which were really, really simple. Staying at the same constant...

Ancestral, cultural, and personal trauma keeps women from having it all

9/6/2018
More
It's never been safe to be a woman in the world. For generations, we've learned to survive by keeping a lid on our desires and hiding our light under a bushel. There's so much unexpressed pain around 1000s of years of that trauma that I call Patriarchy Stress Disorder™ (PSD). To cope, we compartmentalize and move on. We put the blinders on and take care of business. We succeed in one area, but we pay the price in another. We get blindsided with a crisis in our health or relationship,...

Then he turned around and said: "I find it fascinating. Here you have all these books on mindfulness, yoga, meditation, all this self-help... And you just can't help yourself.” It...
