Sunday Surf

I missed Sunday Surf last week because I was getting together the Gentle Discipline Fair materials for May.  Here is some of the great stuff I read this week!  You can always see what I’m reading at my Google Reader Public Page. Visit Authentic Parenting for more Sunday Surfing!

Concentrating on letting go of my notion that the therapist is thinking I”m “gross” is one of the benefits of massage in my opinion. The first few massages I got it took nearly the whole hour to relax and stop worrying about it. Now I only have occasional moments of self-doubt. I really think this moment of thoughtful, human touch has helped me love my body.

Honestly if the therapist IS thinking I’m gross it is more about them than it is about me. But, in my experience I think that a therapist without a reverence for the beauty of the human body wouldn’t be a very good therapist. I almost think you’d know. It is such a – I want to say – worshipful experience to me. I’ve told my therapist before that what she offers is so much more than “relaxation” or “a spa experience.” It really forces me to LOVE my body which has not always been easy for me.
