life shake-up:

flight ‘down under’, forgive, and let go

Our Co-Founder Barbara went to Australia on a mission to pick up the pieces and find peace amid the start of a new phase in her life - one of singular self confidence and love, following several years of movement.

Presenting,

‘my body’

A visual and poetic celebration of women and their bodies, held sacred in a time of healing and truth-telling.

We’ve chosen this series to enunciate the personal power of resilient women. The My Body series celebrates each individual woman: her unique strengths, beauty, honesty, and reality. The collection of photography and self-curated writing reveals an expressed comfort, connection, and love of her body. These women are unafraid to share that comfort, connection, and love in a creative way.
