At SOUL Food Salon Brie discussed the many aspects of girl culture she speaks about with young women. She addressed body image, to media hypersexualization of young women and the sexting that follows. We looked at the cultural portrayals of women at large and the impact this has on all of us.
Our conversation landed in the power of interpersonal and intrapersonal connection. With mindfulness and conscious action we can aspire to a place where body image meets embodiment and where presence and bodily awareness meet self-trust. Brie's talk explored how we can come home to rest in our bodies and lead irrepressible, high-spirited lives.
