A Body Story

Arla Patch's first book received 2006 OUTSTANDING BOOK OF THE YEAR Nomination for "MOST LIFE CHANGING." It was honored with finalist status and Honorable  Mention by Independent Publisher. (IPPY Award)

In a culture where most women are unhappy with their bodies and misunderstand the body's true divine nature, this book shows, in breathtaking visual terms, backed with a powerful story, how we are all sacred.

This spare yet compelling book commingles three tracks in the author's life: her healing from trauma, her spiritual life and her artistic expression. Nineteen images serve as visual metaphors for the connection between nature and our bodies.

These visual prayers also celebrate a woman triumphantly reclaiming herself after a life time of challenges.
