ABOUT The Art of Self-Nurturing:

Begin the adventure of a lifetime by nurturing the most important relationship you will ever have—the relationship with yourself!

The Art of Self-Nurturing was written to empower you to become the artist of your own life and see self-nurturing as an art form. Rather than living from obligation and overwhelm, you will learn to cultivate a life filled with self-compassion and self-love.

The practice of self-nurturing is not about being perfect or completing another thing on your “to-do” list, but rather nurturing a relationship with yourself. It is about recognizing what is nurturing in any given moment and allowing your practice to evolve accordingly. The more we nurture ourselves, the more we know ourselves allowing us to reveal more of who we are in the world.

This field guide is designed to make your journey easier and to support you by breaking down the process into three parts: The Foundation of Self-NurturingCultivating a Self-Nurturing Practice, and Integrating Self-Nurturing Practices into Your Life.

Each section is broken into chapters and provides inspiration, best practices, examples, reflective questions, and self-nurturing practices to support you on your journey.
