⭑ I believe in the sovereignty of every body;
every person has the right to live in their body in a way that feels right to them.
⭑ I believe in body diversity,
that we live in a world that has a huge variety of body shapes, sizes, strengths, and abilities. And this diversity should be celebrated.
⭑ I believe in the wisdom of the body,
that when we turn towards, rather than away from our bodies, we will be led closer to our true selves and our own inner wisdom.
⭑ I believe that health is a continuum,
made up of many factors that play a part in an overall sense of well-being; physical/biological, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, social, and ecological.
⭑ I believe that everybody deserves to live life
and be treated with respect and dignity; free of stigma and bias regardless of size, health status, gender identity, sexuality, race, class, ethnicity, nationality, religion, education, occupation, ability, or age.
⭑ I believe we all have what we need inside of us,
right now, as we are, to begin to heal our relationship with food and our body, and to begin to let go of shame, stigma, and separation.
⭑ I believe everyone’s healing journey is unique,
and each person is the expert of their own inner landscape.
⭑ I believe that healing is an individual and community process; that when we begin to heal ourselves, we also begin to heal the world around us.
