Join best-selling author Geneen Roth as she and Eileen Fisher engage in an exciting deep dive into what lies behind our tendencies toward self-criticism. Inspired by Geneen’s new book, This Messy Magnificent Life, the afternoon discussion will explore the personal beliefs, hidden traumas, and social pressures that shape not just women’s feelings about their bodies, but also their confidence, choices, and relationships.
Inspired by her own dark night of the soul — plus years of teaching workshops on weight, money, and other obsessions — Geneen has come to understand what keeps so many women stuck in their unhappiness. She uses her own experiences and those of her students to reveal the paradoxes in our beliefs and emotions — and show how to move beyond our past to build lives based on love, joy, and self-acceptance.
This latest book is also loaded with a wide variety of powerful reminders to help us break the trance of discontent, embrace our unique and often unsung potential — and finally be at home in our minds and bodies.
