She unbuckled her belt and trousers and finally stood there completely naked. She felt freer than any other moment in her entire life…She could dance freely, and nothing impeded her movements. Every atom of her body was touching the air, and the air was generous; it brought with it, from afar, secrets and perfumes to clothe her from head to toe.

Brida, Paulo Coelho

Yes, she was proud of her body, and no one could criticize her for that: even if she were seventy years old, she was still proud of her body, because it was through her body that the soul could do its work.

From the book Brida by Paulo Coelho

I have this sticky note on my bathroom mirror so I see it everyday and say it out loud when I look at myself. I find I’m a lot sweeter to myself when I do this. Try it for yourself! #dancenaked #selflove #selfieconscious

Thank you Monica Lewinsky for being so utterly courageous in telling your personal story while focusing on the culture of humiliation that exists online. If we feel humiliation more strongly than happiness or even anger than I recommend we all really consider the next time we want to post something unkind about anyone. I much prefer a culture of compassion and empathy rather than humiliation. http://bit.ly/monicalewinskytedtalk #monicalewinsky

Reading Hamlet again to prepare for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at Folger Theatre. I’m almost POSITIVE Ophelia was dancing naked in her madness over her lost love Hamlet and also how terrible her family treated her. That’s just my interpretation of course 😜! Dance it out Ophelia! #dancenaked

Every day is a miracle, so we should dress for the occasion! Paulo Coelho is one of my favorite authors. He encourages individuals to really look deep and inward and asks the hard questions about why we are here that challenge us spiritually. I highly recommend starting out with “The Alchemist”! #dancenaked
