Sara Avant Stover Text Excerpt

Sara Avant Stover
Once I was in Thailand, I started delving into yoga more deeply. I’d been studying already for four years, but really embracing it as a self healing tool rather than just as another form of exercise. Started studying intensively Buddhist meditation, traditional Chinese medicine, energy healing like Reiki, Ayurveda, and mixing and matching all these things and seeing what worked for me, what didn’t.

And finally developing a way of life that really allowed me to come back to health. Come home to a sense of self love that I had never had. And eventually, as I think is usually the case, when we learn a lesson ourselves, then other people come to us with those same problems, with those same lessons they need to learn.

So women started coming to me and I had answers for them. I’ve been teaching this for the past ten years. Now the culmination of that whole stand, of everything I learned is now in my book The Way of the Happy Woman.

If we can help, especially the women in the audience today, of course. If we can help them towards self love, we have a successful show. It’s so big in life. And in our culture, is it more challenging, culturally, for women to arrive at self love than it is for men?

Sara Avant Stover
Yes, I think so.

Tom Park
Please talk to me. This is what I think too.

Sara Avant Stover
Yeah, the media, it has such a deep impact. And I know we hear this again and again and again. It has such a deep impact on our psyches. Even now, even though I’m so aware of it and been working with it for so long, it still has an impact.

Tom Park
How so? I want you to tear it apart a little bit please.

Sara Avant Stover
By comparing myself. By having these standards of beauty all in body size, all around me, all the time. Always feeling kind of in contrast to those. Or like I’m moving in the opposite direction to those. But I fell the pull of “oh, that’s what everyone thinks is beautiful, that’s what men think is beautiful.” And then taking that on myself, a certain part of me.

And then realizing, no, what do I think is beautiful. How do I look when I feel my best. And having to take a real conscious stand in my own definitions of beauty. But it’s challenging when the rest of the world doesn’t always reflect that. I hope that over time we start to have images around us of more empowered feminine bodies and feminine lives…….
