Taryn Brumfitt is a Belly Buddy
Taryn Brumfitt’s body positive film “Embrace” is now on screens in the United States.
Her book, Embrace: My Story from Body Loather to Body Lover, came out in 2015. Now, with this film, the Australian woman’s going global with a comprehensive Body Image Movement for women’s empowerment through body confidence.
I’ll be seeing the film — produced with $200,000 raised through a Kickstarter campaign — in Asheville on Thursday, September 29. Click here to find screenings near you; meanwhile, you can see the trailer here.
According to Taryn,
The Body Image Movement teaches women the value and power of loving their body from the inside out, supporting health and happiness at every size. Advocating natural ageing and natural beauty, the movement aims to uncover the true beauty that lies within each and every one of us…
But wait, there’s more.
As I’ve been watching Taryn’s YouTube interviews and reading up on her doings, I came across a recent Huffington Post article about her, Mom On A Mission To Change The Way Women See Their Bodies. The photo below appears toward the end of that article — complete with her revelation that “My stomach used to be the part of my body that I loathed the most.”
Click on the photo or here to see the image full size and read the rest of her statement — which makes Taryn an honorary Belly Buddy, wouldn’t you say?
