“A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, but an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one.”― Naomi Wolf. No wonder women are in a constant argument with our bodies. No wonder we are disconnected from our bodies–and we see them as “other.” And yet, the relationship with our bodies is the most important relationship we have. Nina Manolson brings so much love, compassion, wisdom, and soul to the conversation we are having with and around our bodies. What becomes possible when we feel Body Peace? What become possible when we set ourselves free from the chains of patriarchal beauty norms? If you’re like me, it is actually hard to imagine. But for certain this conversation is crucial to our wellbeing. I cannot wait to hear what you think of this profound episode.
What’s my passion?
I’m passionate about helping women end their food and body struggles because I was at war with my body and food for much of my life. I was always trying to lose the extra 15 to 25 pounds I carried. Food was my reward, my consolation prize…my response to any uncomfortable feeling. Diets always ensued. I tried every diet under the sun. Nothing worked until I stepped into the approach that I want to offer you.
