What does someone’s size have to do with spirituality? Well to be perfectly honest with you it shouldn’t have anything to do with it – but the world we live in that is steeped in sizest and fatphobic rhetoric and messaging – makes it so. My truly wonderful guest on The Priestess Podcast today is Andrea Westbrook, a life coach for fat, curvy and plus sized women. Andrea shares with us about the necessary reclaiming of the word fat, how exclusionary spiritual spaces can be of people who are fat and most importantly of all – what we can all do about such things to make a spiritual path of life exploration open to us all. I know you will find Andrea inspirational and heart opening in her messaging about this topic which is not just relevant in spiritual spaces and our work – but indeed in our lives in general.
Andrea is a Mindset and Confidence coach whose mission is to guide fat, curvy, or plus-size women; women whose bodies don’t fit society’s notion of “ideal” to befriend their fears so that they can connect to their inner power, their intuition, and fully embody the life they truly want to live. As a plus-size woman, Andrea has overcome years of weight stigma, fat-phobia, low self-belief, and disconnection from her body wisdom to move into her full potential and achieve her career and life goals. Andrea couples her personal experience with her nurturing and encouraging style to help her clients live the life of their dreams too.
