Publisher's Summary

Maybe you've been made to feel ashamed of your body or like it isn't good enough. Maybe your body is riddled with stress, pain, or the effects of trauma. Maybe you think of your body as an accessory to what you believe you really are - your mind. Whatever the reason, many of us don't feel at home in our bodies. But being disconnected from ourselves as bodies means being disconnected from truly living and from the interconnection that weaves us all together.

Psychologist and award-winning researcher Hillary McBride explores the broken and unhealthy ideas we have inherited about our body. Embodiment is the way we are in the world, and our embodiment is heavily influenced by who we have been allowed to be. McBride shows that many of us feel disembodied due to colonization, racism, sexism, and patriarchy - destructive systems that rank certain bodies as less valuable, beautiful, or human than others.

The Wisdom of Your Body offers a compassionate, healthy, and holistic perspective on embodied living. Weaving together illuminating research, stories from her work as a therapist, and deeply personal narratives of healing from a life-threatening eating disorder, a near-fatal car accident, and chronic pain, McBride invites us to reclaim the wisdom of the body and to experience the wholeness that has been there all along.

Narrator did not connect

This book was difficult to get through because of the narrator. When there were quotes in the narrative, she altered her voice, even lowering it like she was pretending to sound like a man. It wasn’t necessary and even distracting. Her style of reading was inauthentic and insincere, like a polished news anchor reading a prompter, or a voiceover for an ad. The personal and intimate nature of this text requires something more raw and intimate- like I could imagine the author’s voice would have been.

An absolute must-read for anyone with a body

I cannot thank Dr. Hillary McBride enough for this book. I have never before read something so encapsulating of all of the nuance that comes with embodiment. This book has been life-changing for me and an integral part of my own spiritual awakening and coming home to my body. What a gift to the world. Thank you thank you thank you.
