The Magical History of Body Loving Homework

February 13, 2014

I created the first incarnation of Body Loving Homework during the Summer of 2009.

The dream was to cultivate a series of writing prompts that allowed women to experience their bodies in a different way – allowed them to renovate their relationship with their sacred vessel and begin to find peace. 

What began with that dream, unfolded into a ebook several years later. My first product. My first major labor of love.

When Body Loving Homework: Writing Prompts for Cultivating Self-Love, was born, my heart opened and I felt continually blown away by the level of transformation that readers reported. The power of simple prompts, returned to again and again, is simply astounding. But, they were the prompts that I had used to heal my relationship with my body, so their inherent worth was written on my skin, on my bones.

I got an email one day from a woman who asked me to put the book into a class, which of course I did – immediately.

I ran that live e-course twice. Both of those groups where brimming with amazing and powerful feminine energy – women joining together to survey their lives and enact change in their pursuit of joy.

We became greedy in our collective desire for transformation. I didn’t want to just feel peace in my body – I wanted to feel peace in my life. I wanted a life that reflected me, a life supported by ease and self-trust. My teaching naturally unfolded – from the body to building the relationship with our spirit.

And, because I wanted those teachings to impact as many women as possible, I created a self-study version of the live class – all of the lessons, worksheets, and prompts, but without me and without the community.

I have been more proud of Body Loving Homework than I have of anything else that I’ve built. 

The connections with the hundreds of women that have moved through these circles is the backbone of my business – my inner circle and my heartfelt tribe.

I’m ready to expand. I am ready to shed Body Loving Homework and create something new. I am ready to move into a new phase of my life and business.

But, not without giving you one last chance to dance and circle and join in on this body-loving (life-loving) action.

This step fills me with equal parts of sadness and exhilaration. I have loved this work, truly. I cannot even find adequate words to describe the impact that I have been privileged to witness during this process.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to share the history of this material, the backbone of much of the first couple years of my business.

I can’t wait to share the next incarnation of my work with you.
