Product description

Review

"Ann Saffi Biasetti, like all the best teachers of self-compassion, shares her teaching through her loving connected presence. You can feel it when you are in her presence and you can feel it in the pages of this warm, supportive, and encouraging book. Drawing upon the latest science related to self-compassion and its role in well-being, wellness and health, Ann weaves this knowledge and wisdom into a practical guide to finding a new relationship between you and your body: the most important (and often the most conflicted) relationship a human being can have. Ann teaches how having a warm and encouraging relationship with ourselves can then allow us to make change, not because we aren't good enough as we are, but because we long for something better. Reading this book is motivating, encouraging, inspiring and most of all, compassionate. You'll be glad you followed this path with the author."--Steven D. Hickman, PsyD., Associate Clinical Professor, University of California at San Diego, Executive Director, Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, Founding Director, UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness

"Dr. Biasetti's work hits the sweet spot where self-compassion training and eating disorder recovery intersect--the body--and she shows how compassionate, embodied awareness heals."--Christopher Germer, PhD, author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion

"Befriending Your Body is a valuable resource for creating a new relationship with your body and with food. Full of meditation, yoga, and self-compassion practices, this wise and loving book will be a much needed antidote to body-shaming and self-loathing which plague so many women. This book is a healing gift."--Dr. Susan Pollak, co-author of Sitting Together: Essential Skills for Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy, President, Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, co-founder, Center for Mindfulness and Compassion, Harvard Medical School.

"This book could become a treasured friend to those in recovery from any sort of eating disorder."--New Spirit Journal
