A quick summary…

This guided journal offers a genuinely uplifting way of looking into body image – avoiding turning ‘self-love’ into another way to sell beauty products or another thing you are failing to tick off a to-do list. Fariha Róisín addresses Disability, racism, size, trauma, ageing and the complex, conflicted feelings many people have about beauty and bodies. Being in Your Body offers compassionate, inclusive and life-enhancing questions and points for consideration, with space for your responses, and beautiful illustrations by Monica Ramos.
