Description

Yasmine Galenorn presents a nurturing guide for loving the body and allowing it to become a more expressive vehicle for the spirit within. Offering personal revelations as well as interviews, rituals, exercises, visualizations, spells, and practical tips, she helps readers achieve balance in their physical and spiritual self-perceptions.

Beginning with the author’s insights on body image, self-esteem, and soul, CRAFTING THE BODY DIVINE presents health and beauty tips geared to radiating a positive self-image, and looks at how society defines beauty and how individuals can liberate themselves from the restrictions of such ideals. The second part of the book focuses on movement as ritual, and exercise as the experience of spiritual energy. Finally, Galenorn explores body modification, such as tattooing and piercing, as personal expressions of spirit.
