Written by: Center for Body Trust

We recorded a video series for our beloved community to help you learn more about the Core Elements and Phases of a Body Trust® Practice. Below is a note and link to Video #5.

“What if it’s a measure of our freedom to reclaim pleasure?”
∼adrienne maree brown

One of the ways we reclaim body trust is by exploring our relationship with pleasure. Many people with a complicated relationship with food also have a disrupted relationship with desire. Reclaiming pleasure is an act of resistance in a culture that has made indulgence a “dirty word”. Pleasure takes up space and says I’m here. It is not a shrinking back, but rather an expansion and expression of ourselves. We believe that pleasure, in the absence of shame and guilt, heals.

In this video that’s part of a series we are creating for you on the Core Elements of a Body Trust® Practice, Dana talks more about pleasure, and why we specifically we chose the words rediscover, embody, and allow for pleasure.

We hope you find these videos helpful to your healing process.
