What do rocks have to do with body image?
With personal stories and actionable steps, body image activist and educator, Teri Hofford helps women reconstruct the relationship they have with their body using geodes as a metaphor. Portraying the harmful belief systems, thought processes, trauma, and past experiences connected with how we view and treat our bodies every day as the gritty, grey, and hardened outer shell of a geode, Teri explains how these things keep us from following our hearts and revealing our true, glittery inner selves. At the end of each chapter, she asks the reader a number of questions and gives them ways to chip away at these outer layers so that by the end of the book, the reader will understand that by embracing their imperfections, developing a positive relationship with their body, and honouring the person within, they will begin to appreciate their authentic self, thus leading them to live a more fulfilling and sparkly life....
