Is Body Tolerance Realistic?
In this video Dr. Jennifer Kreatsoulas proposes there are three stages in being liberated from body hate: HATE, TOLERATE, LIBERATE. This does not mean you always love your body, but you can learn to "neutralize the charge of hate, feel your mind quiet down, and feel more in sync with your body."
Kreatsoulas discusses how the use of yoga can get you closer to that place of tolerance and liberation. It is not a once-and-done experience, though. We must learn to go back again and again to neutralize the negativity whenever it tries to pop up. We have to become more accepting before we can appreciate and make peace with the particular body we are given.
