Embody Love Movement

Embody Love Movement Embody Love Movement's mission is to resource everyone to reclaim beauty on their own terms. #embodylovemovement Embody Love Movement was born out of the inspiration from a group of a few young women who, together, found a passion for inspiring and empowering other girls and women to recognize their value and their potential.

Posted @withregram • @beauty_redefined When you celebrate someone for their weight loss or body transformation, are you celebrating *them* or are you really just celebrating the dangerous myth that thinness is best at any cost? Are you celebrating someone’s fitness progress, or are you celebrating their progress deeper into a looks-obsessed culture that doesn’t actually care about their health and fitness at all, just their “improved” body no matter the unhealthy extremes it took to get there? We encourage you to *celebrate* people as much and as often as possible, but celebrate them in ways that honor their humanity, their abilities, talents, and character. Celebrate who they are, what they do, and how they inspire you.
🖤If that includes celebrating their body, do your best to make sure you honor and respect them *regardless of how they look*, and that they know that deeply. Because bodies constantly change, focusing your validation on someone’s body does little to really honor them in a sustainable or impactful way. The compliments that really stick with you go much deeper than your body, and can’t be brushed off nearly so easily. And because weight loss compliments are often deeply painful for people unintentionally losing weight due to illness or stress or fueling disordered eating or unhealthy extremes, it’s best to dig deeper with your compliments. We share many of your examples of the mind-boggling weight loss compliments you’ve received in our book!
🖤In a world that values us as bodies first and humans second, we can remind people of their worth by the way we celebrate them. We are more than bodies. Let’s see more, be more, and say more.

Posted @withregram • @beauty_redefined This excerpt from our book is really resonating with you and we LOVE TO SEE IT. We live in a world that cares more about how everyone else SEES girls and FEELS about their bodies and clothes than how girls SEE themselves and FEEL in their bodies and clothes. That should be 🔥infuriating🔥, but it's usually an invisible norm we all just live with because “that’s just the way things are.”
➕In “More Than a Body,” we describe the dangers of policing girls and women for dress code violations and teaching them to dress modestly as a protection for others. We also lay out the *solutions* for this widespread problem, including examples of dress codes and mindset reframes that allow people their full humanity.
✖️We have all been taught to see women as objects to be looked at, judged, used, and discarded. Where men are clearly seen as more than bodies, women are not afforded that humanity. As their looks are emphasized over all else, girls learn and re-learn to experience their bodies from a sexualized outside perspective – as objects to be looked at. She becomes an onlooker to herself, her own 24-hour body police, joining the rest of the world in enforcing our culture’s arbitrary and unachievable standards of beauty and attractiveness against herself. In the midst of this unyielding cycle of objectification, she is not only held accountable for how she presents herself, but for how she is *perceived.*
✖️We can do better. If we can learn to *see more* in everyone else, and remain accountable for our own thoughts & actions regardless of what anyone is wearing, we can *be more* as individuals and a society. When you objectify someone, you see them and treat them as less human than you. You are more prone to disrespect and harm them. You do the same to yourself when you value yourself for your parts over your humanity. And FYI, we’ve posted on the way the fashion industry sexualizes girls & women in previous posts.

i was ten
when i first heard the term
thunder thighs
and i wondered how to become
the type of woman
strong enough
to hold thunder
in her very legs

the type of woman
loud enough
to make thunder
when she walks

a storm bringer
drowning out words that
call attention
to thighs and not souls
that call attention to guys
and enable trolls

i wondered how to get
legs of thunder
and if i could get a
tongue of lightning
to go alongside

if i could really
shake institutions
with each step i took
and make a reputation
from all the foundations
i shook

my body
rapidly
expanding
to take up the space
i was told i could never have
clapping thunder
into the atmosphere
and the faces of those
hellbent on my silence and
fear

hear me and my thighs
they are more powerful
than the men
who name them
they are more beautiful
than the world
that hides them

and i was ten
when i first heard how women
are hated
how their bodies berated
and their ideas negated
and i was eleven when
men first made me
wary
and thirteen when
when they taught me
storms were too scary

but i’m now
thirty plus four
and my thighs keep growing
asking for more
they’re clapping
and shaking
and making a scene
a bringing a storm
and washing things
clean

Posted @withregram • @drmelodymoore Repost from @ompowerproject via @kyra.haglund

A message from our founder:
Friends, like many of you, I am heartbroken over what is unfolding in Afghanistan. I have been working in Afghanistan since 2005, most recently on programs to support girls education, refugee and IDP resettlement, and infrastructure development and employment. I have many friends right now in Kabul and throughout the country and I fear for their safety and for their future. My thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.

OMPowerment was founded to support refugees and, as such, we can not look away from the global realities that contribute to the refugee crisis, in Afghanistan but also in Haiti, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Yemen, and Syria, to name just a few, as well as larger crises such as climate change. [More info on how to support efforts in some of these countries can be found in our stories]

It’s so easy to get caught up in hashtags – to feel devastated about a particular issue and helpless to do anything about it, and then to move on when the news cycle shifts. Please don’t turn away – we need to come together as a global community to support one another. None of us is free until all of us are free. None of us is safe until all of us are safe.

If you have money to donate, please consider carefully where to send it. What are the priorities right now? Who is on the ground doing the work? Are there any local, grassroots organizations you can support?

And, if you don’t have money, there are numerous other ways to ACT. Scroll through for some ideas.

“Do not look the other way; do not hesitate. Recognize that the world is hungry for action, not words. Act with courage and vision.” -Nelson Mandela

➡️ AND – if you have been working in Afghanistan – embassy and support staff, aid workers, military vets – STAY TUNED for details about a community call later this week. We will come together to process and grieve together, in community.

Stop and look, feel, smell, taste, and listen. What is THIS moment? A pause in your day is a powerful way to embody the moment, ground, and feel centered and powerful. Take a moment and be here now. You deserve time for just you.

I wanted to share this awesome podcast - The Feel Good Effect with Robyn Conley-Downs. It is a really positive podcast on health/wellness that I have enjoyed since it started a few years ago. This particular episode interviews Sadie Lincoln founder of Barre3 and her commitment to be empowered from within and redefining fitness. I am a barre3 instructor in Alexandria VA and clearly this message resonates with me. I do think it is an important message for us all.
Blessed to have the opportunity to work with amazing facilitators and collaborating with Girls Embracing Mothers (GEM). We traveled to a prison near Waco, Texas for women and helped facilitate mothers and daughters activities. It was truly life-changing watching the bonds between them.
'When you are constantly bombarded with messages that tell you again and again that your body is simply wrong, it can make you desperate to control and change it.'-Mikki Kendall is the author of the forthcoming book, “Hood Feminism,” from which this essay is adapted.
I am doing a LISO workshop soon. Does anyone have a sample survey for afterward I can look look at?
If you're in the Pacific Northwest, you won't want to miss this opportunity to become a facilitator. The training is next week and is our only PNW training of 2019. If you've been considering whether or not this work is right for you, but you're not sure you're ready--I assure you that you're already ready! Please comment below if you have questions!
In a world where our self image is being attacked everyday, how can we help ourselves to know whom we are and accept that we are wonderfully and beautifully made. That’s where embody love movement comes in!
Hi all!! Have you been thinking about becoming an Embody Love Movement® facilitator? I've got a facilitator training in San Clemente, CA March 8-10 and would LOVE you to join me if you live in or near the area!! This is some of the most impactful and inspiring work that I get to do and I'm looking for some women ready to join me out here so we can spread this message and bring some momentum to the movement.
"Next time you meet a young woman who is worried about her body fat, maybe tell her this story and remind her that she’s no man’s property, no one’s status symbol, and the best way for her to be beautiful is to be healthy, which isn’t at all about weight" Emily Nagoski
How do I sign up for the Summit in September?!!
Hi all!! If you are in Southern California and looking for the next chance to become a facilitator I am holding a facilitator training in San Clemente, CA June 22-24...would absolutely LOVE to have you join the revolution down here. Learn more and register here:
Important words to share with everyone.
Dear Embody Love Movement- This is an open letter I wrote to the advertising industry, in particular to those companies who photoshop images of women to sell their products, and because I love your organization and what it does for women, I thought this would be a great place to share. I have suffered with my own body issues for years, and found that those altered images were very damaging to my self confidence. I wrote this letter with the hope that maybe someone will read it and realize that they are absolutely not the problem, and that the real issue lies with an industry intent on making money off of our insecurities. Feel free to message me with any questions or comments. Thank you!
