Our bodies are our best friends. You may not know it, but it’s always leading us to what’s best.

Activist, artist, and thought leader Sonya Renee Taylor shares her journey of listening to and practicing compassion with her body. This physical vessel we have never does us wrong, and the wealth of knowledge it provides us once we start paying attention creates so much joy and ease in our everyday lives.

Tune in to this episode: Radical Self-Love with Sonya Renee Taylor

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Our bodies don’t need language to understand energy.

Before you can even make a bad decision, your body can prevent you from making it. It would take longer for your mind to process.

✔️ Your intuitive relationship with your body is a gift. Honor it.

Your body knows better and is looking out for you. Symptoms don’t mean you’re broken. It’s your body lovingly communicating to you that something needs to change.

✔️ Think about your relationship with your body.

You’re on the same team. Let go of old conditioned beliefs about your body. Practice self-awareness to combat those thoughts and do things differently.

✔️ Radical self-love involves generosity.

It’s knowing that there’s so much in the world for all of us. Nothing is completely ours. We have the sacred obligation to share the good that comes through us.


Sonya Renee Taylor is a world-renowned activist, award-winning artist, transformational thought leader, author of six books including The New York Times best-selling The Body is Not an Apology, and founder of the international movement and digital media and education company of the same name whose work has reached millions of people by exploring the intersections of identity, healing, and social justice using a radical self-love framework.
