Among the many Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls that you don't want to miss:
1. It's Possible to Love Your Body (Today. Now.)
2. You Can Train Your Brain to Play Nice
3. Your Weight Is Not a Reflection Of Your Worth
4. Changing Your Tumblr Feed Will Change Your Life
5. Salad Will Not Get You to Heaven
6. Cheesecake Will Not Send You to Hell
If you're a person with a body, this book is for you.
Discussion on April 1.
Psychoanalyst, poet, and keeper of old stories Clarissa Pinkola Estes points out that wolves and women share many qualities: playfulness, strength, curiosity, bravery, they are adaptive, and each care deeply for their young. But both wolves and women have suffered a similar fate of being hounded, harassed, exhausted, marginalized, accused of being devious and of little value. Estes retells ancient myths and fairy tales from around the world and in doing so shines a light on a path which leads us back to our natural state -- and help us restore the power we carry within us.
Discussion will be on April 29 at 3:30.
