In this episode, we sat down with Ann, a woman who struggled to find her truth, but now speaks with a voice so clear and articulate that it's hard to hear anything but wisdom in her story. We made space in this interview for her story of living in a thin body. She laid out some great structure for the connection between weight and health, making way for a new understanding... one that is defined by the way our body FUNCTIONS as opposed to the way our bodies appear. We also talked about roller derby and burlesque and how we can only find our body by literally FINDING OUR BODY. She's a courageous genius, this one.

She wants all of us to understand that fat is something she has, not something she is. This woman, and her words, are a gift.

As a massage therapist and body worker, Kim offers compassionate touch to her clients, accessing their healing by way of her own.
