In this book, written by our founder, Christine Marie Mason, and beautifully illustrated by the artist Ouvra, we look at our bodies, especially the usually ignored parts, and how we love and care for them.
In this book, written by our founder, Christine Marie Mason, and beautifully illustrated by the artist Ouvra, we look at our bodies, especially the usually ignored parts, and how we love and care for them. We learn more about our parts and how they interact. We have a conversation on touch, relaxation, strengthening, nourishing and nurturing them. We look into how our intimate parts rest in the pelvic bowl, which rests in the body, which is infused with blood and all the good and bad materials circulating therein. Our bodies live harnessed to our thoughts, inextricably tied to our environment.
We hope this book will spark a deeper awakening to all the ways you might be in wonder at the miracle of your own body, and cherish yourself more.
