Ann Saffi Biasetti
Description: People who struggle with disordered eating find themselves in an unrelenting cycle of harsh self-judgment, painful emotions, and harmful behaviors. The body is seen as an enemy, something to struggle with, and they may withdraw from life and become isolated. This holistic approach by Ann Saffi Biasetti focuses on two key areas of growth shared by people who recover successfully: self-compassion and embodiment. This insight, informed by yoga and mindfulness meditation, views the body both as something to be healed or restored, and as a source of great wisdom and knowledge. Biasetti guides readers through nine phases of recovery, with experiential exercises, including yoga-based movement, body-awareness practices, meditations, and reflections (journaling prompts). -- From statement provided by publisher.

Description: "How mindfulness can restore the healthy relationship with food we were meant to have--with striking effects on disorders such as overeating, anorexia, and bulimia--an extensively revised edition of this bestseller that includes important new data. Apply mindfulness to your relationship with food and you may be surprised to find that eating becomes a source of joy--instead an angst-ridden activity haunted by nutritionally based guilt, calorie-counting, and even more serious problems like eating disorders. For nearly a decade, Jan Bays's guide to eating mindfully has been transforming people's relationship with food--and based on her continued work with those people as well as new data emerging on the topic, she has created this significantly revised and refined version of the original, which contains even more essential information on mindful eating, as well as inspiring new examples from her workshop participants. She shows how to: Tune into your body's own wisdom about what, when, and how much to eat; Eat less while feeling fully satisfied; Identify your habits and patterns with food; Develop a more compassionate attitude toward your struggles with eating; Discover what you're really hungry for. The 75-minute audio program of exercises from the original book has also been revised and will now be available as an audio download"-- Provided by publisher.

Sonya Renee Taylor
Description: Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies. [This book] offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world--for us all.

Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively.
