The mission of this site…
…to help readers reconnect with their bodies, minds, and spirits and begin to appreciate themselves as truly, uniquely beautiful. This isn’t an easy task in a culture that promotes unhealthy and unrealistic ideals – and not just in size and shape, but in other areas as well. There are so many pressures on all of us to achieve success, remain unfulfilled in our relationships with others and ourselves, and stay disconnected from our internal wisdom. I believe that this is why, as a society, we experience so much mental and physical illness. I hope that Nourishing the Soul plays a small role in encouraging its readers to develop a healthier and more respectful relationship with themselves.

“Weightless…a blog about body image, the skinny fad and freedom from numbers”
Weightless is about well-being, not weight; about fostering body image, regardless of your size. It’s about exposing women’s magazines, other mediums and so-called experts when they’re touting unhealthy tips and promoting restrictive standards.
The goal of Weightless is to help women develop a better body image and work toward accepting themselves as they are, while being healthy and happy (fad diets and skinny-mini standards prohibited!); and to become informed consumers, who can pick apart a commercial or magazine article and know which advice is helpful or harmful.
An online community where youth and emerging adults can access info, resources and tools during tough times. Help yourself. Help each other. Share what you live and know.
