    Your Body Manifesto (TBYB Sneak Peek Ch 5)

    Your Body Manifesto (TBYB Sneak Peek Ch 5)

    If you've ever found yourself in a silent war with your body, or comparing yourself to everyone around you as soon as you walk into a room -- trust me, you're not the only one. But, here's a thought: what if it's not about changing what's on your plate, but rather rethinking how we consume these pervasive cultural stories that mess with our heads? In today's episode, we're going to chat about a chapter from my book that's all about how our patriarchal society shapes the way we see our bodies -- and how to reclaim our bodies as ours and ours alone, and appreciate them for the incredible vessels of life they truly are.

Life-Changing

I’ve done a lot of therapy and coaching, yet Kara always surprises me with nuggets of things I didn’t know before. Or that I didn’t see due to my socialization as a woman.

Once was great but now it’s just a marketing tool

This used to be a very helpful podcast, but now it’s just marketing for her new business and asking people to sign up for something or buy a book. I understand that she needs to monetize the podcast, but I wish there was a variety of ways for those of us who don’t want to purchase the whole program.
