What would your life be like, if you finally ended the war between you and your body?
What would be different for you, if you loved yourself deeply: all of you,
every curve, every inch, every so-called “imperfection”?
Through your BodyLove Affair, you will experience...
Welcome. I'm so glad you're here.
I'm Lisa Carmen, and I'm honored to guide and support your BodyLove Affair.
You're embarking on a love affair that will change you forever.
Your body has so much to share with you, and has been waiting for you, for a lifetime.
The relationship you have with your body affects every single area of your life...
...and everything else in between.
Yes, this BodyLove Affair is that important.
This is no casual fling. This is the love affair of a lifetime.
Well, considering 91% of American women hate all, or parts, of their bodies, chances are pretty good you struggle in one way or another with a loving, healthy body image. So do I.
For more than fifteen years, through my programs, The Burlesque Experience, SacredSexyU, and as a Life Coach, dance instructor, speaker and author, I've worked with thousands of women of all ages, shapes and sizes, on a very similar journey of learning to love themselves and their bodies better.
Yet, even through much of my working with others, I was oftentimes secretly harboring my own increasingly toxic body shame and self-image issues.
Body loving was something that others could have, I would help them get it, yet I was withholding it from myself, as if I didn't deserve that very same freedom.
The dissonance between what I presented publicly and what I hid deep inside became toxic, and it was my secret battle. I was ashamed of my body. And I was ashamed of my shame. So I buried it, hid it, numbed it. And it festered, like a deep infection.
It affected every other area of my life.
That's the way body-loathing works. It's subversive. Secretive. Isolating. And it affects everything and can even destroy us, if left unhealed.
So many of us share this battle, yet we don't talk about it. We keep it secret.
It's a lonely world, inside our heads. Very rarely will we even share with our closest friends how dark it gets in there.
For me, it got pretty dark.
On the outside, I projected confidence. On the inside, often I was hating my body, saying cruel things to myself, things I would not say to my worst enemy.
I became my worst enemy.
Until I decided I was ready to be done with this vicious, painful and toxic way of living, of feeling, of being.
I wanted to love myself fully. Finally. I wanted to come home to my body. I needed a BodyLove Affair.
I am healing my relationship to my body, as we speak.
It doesn't matter what size you wear, how many pounds you weigh, what image your project,
or what other people tell you.
My own personal journey has led me here.
I'm still journeying, in fact.
I want you to join me.
BodyLove Affair is my most personal work yet.
The women I work with and I are courageously asking an important question.
How do we move from body-loathing to body-loving?
The conversation has started. The work is underway.
We are transforming our self-loathing,
self-abuse and self-sabotage into loving, compassionate, healthy and HOT relationships
with our bodies.
The relationship you have with your body is the only 100% truly-guaranteed "til death do us part." relationship. It's as intimate as intimacy gets!
Through coaching, live in-person events, movement, authentic expression workshops and titillating virtual events, I'm inviting you to have your own BodyLove Affair.
This is brave work. Perhaps some of the bravest work you'll ever do.
But on the other side is freedom, true, deep, profound freedom, and it's waiting for you.
We're in this together.
