Our relationship to our bodies and the food we need to fuel ourselves is at the foundation of our well-being. When we aren't eating foods that nourish us, it is hard to find harmony within our bodies. 

To reclaim our power, and step into our fullness we have to take back control of the narratives we have around food, and the body we call home. Lets dive in and make that happen! 

Notes from Show:

Coming back home to our bodies is a BOLD step on our journeys back home to our wholeness. The body is the one home we have on this planet, and we have been taught to feel ashamed of it through advertising and media since we were young children. At the root of the constant battle with food and the war with out bodies is the worthiness wound. The belief that who we are, how we look, and how we show up isn't good enough. 

In this episode Sam Skelley gives us the tools we need to become aware of the beliefs that stand in the way of our self-acceptance and connection to our bodies. We talk about the emotions that drive our disordered eating habits, and the ways we can stop the patterns of destruction and instead FEEL and heal.
