Love Your Belly
Sing a Proud Song
Amazing Grace, my belly is round.
It contains my soul's delight.
I once was lost, and now I'm found
In the truth that my belly's all right.
Don't try to make my belly thin!
Don't try to make my belly flat!
You better believe my belly's beautiful.
Don't you ever call me fat.
Because I'm built for creation.
I ain't built for speed.
Well, my belly's got everything
This woman needs.
From: "The Woman's Belly Book" by Lisa Sarasohn
"Nature does not intend a woman to look like a ten-year old boy. In fact nature designs a woman's belly to shelter and nurture new life. A woman's belly holds and protects her womb promoting the survival of the human species.
.......Our ancestors considered a woman's belly to be sacred, not shameful. Maybe our ancestors got it right."

We can retrain ourselves to breathe as we did at the beginning.
Choose your breathing, choose your mood. Here's an opportunity to discover how the Centering Breath affects your own experience of body and mind."
