In this second part of our series from the archives with Celeste Snowber, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, she explores how we actually “bully” our bodies.  She points out that we regularly berate our bodies for not being what we think they should be, in a way that we would never treat a friend or a child. She says we need to learn to love our wrinkles and our less than perfect stomachs.

She also talks about her book, Embodied Inquiry – Writing Living and Being Through the Body and how she hopes that her message of loving our bodies can reach a wider audience and help bring more people in touch with the “vastness of our body’s call to us”.
