Body Image – Christine Valters Paintner 

March 22, 2017

“The more we strive to achieve external standards of beauty and acceptability by manipulating our image, the more distant we feel from who we really are. It is our bodies as they are right now, not in some imagined fantasy of how they could or should be, that offer us the path to grace, wisdom, and the divine unfolding of our own unique gifts.”
— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD The Wisdom of the Body: A Contemplative Journey to Wholeness for Women
