Erin Brown is unafraid to be big, in presence or in thighs.
This line sums up this woman beautifully. She is strong, powerful and exudes a presence that makes you want to tell her your story -the real, honest story with all it’s dark and crazy bits. If you tell her your story you know that she will hold your space with compassion and love.
Erin is a writer, speaker & activist whose work focuses on women, healing and autonomy. She utilizes authentic narrative to promote empathy and compassion toward ourselves and others. She is a feminist, an intuitive, a firm believer in radical self-care and a coach.
Her story begins at 4 years old when she first experienced concern with her weight. From there her weight issues and low self esteem affected every part of her life, which lead to obsessions with dieting, poor relationship with her body and food and eventually depression.
She used to think that if she were smaller, more beautiful, skinnier than she would be happy.
When she found out she was pregnant with Lola she was terrified. It was then that she made a promise to herself and Lola – that she would do whatever it takes to be a healthy role model for her.
With small steps and goals Erin started to change.
“I embarked on this journey to be a positive role model by loving myself and being healthy. But it was a journey back to myself. This story was once about weight loss, now it has nothing to do with that at all”
Erin is one of the most well articulated and interesting women I have ever had the pleasure of chatting to, and in this juciy episode we delve into some fascinating topics. She totally changed my perspective on some key topics that I have been mulling over lately and it also challenged some of my own stories and beliefs!
– What the words Feminism and Activism mean to her
– Removing Expectations
– The sexualisation of the empowerment industry
– Challenging the system and not the individual
– How it felt to write her book Letters To Lola
Erin also shares some powerful practices that she personally used to help her heal her relationship with her body.
