After three years of visioning, dreaming, writing, collaborating, and working on bringing this project to fruition, I am thrilled to share that the Reclaiming Beauty Journal & Wisdom Deck is now available! In my decade of work as a counselor and eating disorder specialist, I have identified the movement from self-criticism to self-compassion as one of the most challenging and transformative journeys a woman can make. With a strong belief in the body-mind-spirit connection and the importance of spirituality in the healing process, I created this beautiful, inviting, and inspiring aid for all women willing to step on the Reclaiming Beauty path.
This unique resource includes an elegant journal and a corresponding deck of colorfully artistic cards, each with an affirmation about beauty and self-love. Also included are engaging ideas for exploring these affirmations, such as writing reflections, making collages, practicing yoga, meditating on memories, and creating healing rituals. Suggestions for its use include working through the cards in order, alone or with a circle of friends, at one’s own pace or throughout a year, or drawing cards at random for inspiration or an intuitive reading.
The Reclaiming Beauty philosophy approaches body image as an externalized reflection of how we feel about ourselves: body image mirrors self-image. My hope is to inspire women of all types, ages, sizes, and shapes to heed the call to their personal Reclaiming Beauty walk and courageously step forward on their journey. I believe inner beauty is the greatest gift we have to offer ourselves, each other, and the world.

This month there is much to celebrate!
Reclaiming Beauty will be the beneficiary of a donation from The Different Strokes Performing Arts Collective‘s performance of their upcoming show “The Shape of Things.” I am humbled, honored, and inspired to create a service/giving back aspect to the Reclaiming Beauty business model. I will be there for the performance Friday 9/4! I’d love to see some familiar faces.
Join some of my favorite colleagues and me for a talk on finding balance with your relationship with food, movement, body, mind, and spirit, right in time for the Fall Equinox! This event will happen at the Hendersonville Community Co-Op on September 17th. Register here.
Reclaiming Beauty Journal & Wisdom Deck Book Release Party November 7th! I’m so excited to share that my dear friend and artist collaborator for the deck, Leah Joy, will join us from California for the celebration!
So what dreams and visions are you carrying within your heart? I would love to know. Be forewarned… a most likely side effect of taking the Reclaiming Beauty journey is once you clear away obstacles that have prevented you from owning your true beauty, you just may bring your dreams to life.
I honor the beauty in you from the beauty in me.
