From the founders of a teaching collective focused on embodiment, mental health, and healing comes an inclusive, interactive guided meditation and workbook for reclaiming and appreciating your body's resilience.

My Body, My Home is an embodied, interactive guide to belonging. It is a path to self-acceptance, resilience, and healing the disconnect between body and mind. This book is for those of us who have left our bodies--those who needed to escape from our physical form in one way or another. It is a gentle reminder that you belong and a guide to connecting to yourself.

With a variety of soothing meditations and prompts for reflection, this workbook focuses on the relationship between you and your body. How have you left yourself? What does it mean to feel grounded and safe? To whom, what, and where do you belong? As you reflect on your answers to these questions, write in the margins, draw what you feel, and engage with your inner child, your lineage, and your shadow self.

The authors use each page to encourage self-expression with a variety of prompted exercises, from body maps and drawings to lists and Venn diagrams. Challenge the negative stories you tell yourself. Embrace the ways in which you belong. Practice patience with yourself as you grow, hurt, love, and find your home. My Body, My Home is at once a celebration and a tender reclamation of the miracle that is your body.

About the Authors:

Victoria Emanuela is a creative copywriter, mind/body resiliency coach, and trauma-informed meditation teacher. Their work exists at the intersection of healing, somatic writing, and movement. Victoria's love of stringing words together to create shared meaning encourages a sense of belonging.

Caitlin Metz is a feisty introvert, tender queer, illustrator, and educator. Her work is a blend of art with themes of identity, mental health, and community. Caitlin's emotive and immediate mark-making fosters connection, making the world feel less lonely.
