Home: Belonging in the Body

"We all inherit stories and traditions from our families. Is it possible to honour our heritage whilst releasing traditions that harm rather than heal?

I grew up in a house where women would not - or could not - be at home in their bodies. Happiness happened to people inside thin bodies. Thin bodies had to be fought for. To belong together was to be at war together.

This is a story about pulling out of battle. It is a story about digging around in the thick undergrowth of family life and finding hidden treasures. It is about traditions of reverence and rebellion - how they might bring us back to our bodies, and back to one another."
