"You are inherently creative. Yes, you. Even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush before, registered art therapist Ashlee Bennett will teach you how to reclaim your creativity and make amends with your body using art.
In our image-obsessed society, it’s easy to be bogged down by the negative messaging that you’re not enough, that your creativity and self-expression aren’t “right” and that your body isn’t worthy of love and respect. But Ashlee sees the falsehood in those messages and is here to guide you to a place of greater compassion, acceptance and connection with your body and your inner self."
"Ashlee has a gentle way of guiding you toward learning to love and appreciate your body. The activities in this book will help you dig deep and grow in your understanding of your body and self-love" - Nedra Glover Tawwab, LCSW, author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace
"This book, quite simply, is a must read. Not only does Bennett explain complex concepts like internalised fat phobia in an easy to read way, but she also creates meaningful artistic exercises to help you tend to the home inside of yourself" - Jenn Hardy, PhD, Psychologist, creator of @drjennhardy
Thank you so much for your support and I sincerely hope this book becomes a special resource as you work on accepting your body and living a full embodied life - Ashlee
