Publisher Marketing: "I don't trust myself and I'm always worrying about what others think of me"... Does this sound familiar? With astounding clarity, Chapman identifies the gender conditioning women receive from the moment the doctor shouts "It's a girl!" Offering a feminist perspective on how women are culturally conditioned to disconnect from their authenticity and power, the book guides the reader through an intimate journey in applying mindfulness to cultivate connection with authentic self and gain the freedom to live with unshakeable confidence. This warm and practical book explores the ways women lose themselves in relationships and shows how they can regain connection with their true selves through mindfulness. The book is beautifully designed to follow Chapman's popular nine-week meditation class that trains the mind, heart, and body. It builds on "Ownwork" practices the reader can use in formal meditation sits, or informally, in daily moments like sitting in the car or waiting in line. Each chapter includes easy-to-follow Check-Ins and Practice sections leading the reader toward gentle yet unflinching connection with one's own direct experience. UNSHAKEABLE CONFIDENCE is a book for every woman it's about giving yourself loving kindness. it's about gaining self-confidence through mindfulness meditation. it's about finding steadfast, unshakeable, authentic, lasting change through practice. it's about anchoring yourself in the midst of gender-conditioned 'shoulds'. it's about Mare being right there with you, cheering you on every step of the way!
