Sometimes a small number of words are just
what we need...

"When she stopped conforming to the conventional picture
of femininity she finally began to enjoy being a woman."

Betty Friedan


"...when you tune out the critical voices in your head and embrace what your heart is saying, you don't just make your own life better. You make the world better."

Gabrielle Giffords


"The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason."

John Cage


On a cool patch of earth
I curl into myself
Beginning anew
Vowing to accept my body this time
And to return often to this land that nurtures me

Holds me in her wide palm
Cradling me
Whispering to me. . .
Your body reflects my own contours
Curves that mirror
Rolling hills and grand mountains
Dipping into valleys, canyons, crevices
Breathtaking and more exotic than flat lands and prairies.

Joslyn Smith

If you can listen to the wisdom of your body,
love this flesh and bone,
dedicate yourself to its mystery,
you may one day
find yourself
smiling from your mirror.

Marion Woodman

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Eleanor Roosevelt


I celebrate this womanly, emotion filled physical temple that is my body.
I celebrate its often messy, complicated, juicy feelings and all its intense hungers.
I celebrate the joyous process of learning how to nourish, nurture and care for it in an ever more sacred and honoring way.

(more Robyn Posin)
Arms raised, feet planted in earth
standing open to the world
sun kisses skin
wind cradles flesh
ample breasts and rounded belly
remember the moon’s face
power enters through naked soles
and rests inside the center
I am my own sacred space
I approach myself in a sacred manner
let others do the same

In the scenery of spring
there is nothing superior
nothing inferior;
flowering branches
are by nature
some short
some long.

 Zen Proverb

"We cannot change anything unless we accept it.
Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses."

Carl Jung

This is your body,
your greatest gift,
pregnant with wisdom you do not hear,
grief you thought was forgotten,
and joy you have never known.

Marion Woodman

"Fat people are not necessarily lazy or stupid; people who believe in stereotypes, however, are."

Marilyn Wann

"Life's too short for self hatred & celery sticks."

Marilyn Wann

"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations
have been in the making for a lifetime."

Gail Goodwin

"Do people only have value when they are without imperfections?"



How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment to
improve the world”

 Anne Frank
