Just what I needed to hear.
Thank you so very much Oprah! It truly is so simple. Kindness is a perfect start and it begins with yourself.

In the Body of the World
- By: Eve Ensler
- Narrated by: Eve Ensler
- Length: 4 hrs and 15 mins
Playwright, author, and activist Eve Ensler has devoted her life to the female body - how to talk about it, how to protect and value it. Yet she spent much of her life disassociated from her own body - a disconnection brought on by her father’s sexual abuse and her mother’s remoteness. “Because I did not, could not inhabit my body or the Earth,” she writes, “I could not feel or know their pain.” But Ensler is shocked out of her distance.

If you could sum up In the Body of the World in three words, what would they be?
Profound, beautiful, and inspiring.
What other book might you compare In the Body of the World to and why?
Jane Fonda's My Life So Far. Another strong female with balls.
Any additional comments?
I am in awe of this woman's courage, strength, and love of life. I feel so privileged, honored and lucky to be a recipient of this awesome gift that this beautiful warrior had the courage to cronicle and narrate for us. She has given me inspiration, validation and guidance to dig deep and not be afraid to face what I encounter along the way, for that is exactly where our truth lies. This is surely one, if not 'the' scariest thing we'll ever do for owerseves, but once a glimpse or a taste is absorbed, it's the only game in town. Thank you Eve Ensler, you are one of the most amazing people I've ever come across.
This book in my humble opinion is a must for both men and women.
