Participants from all walks of life make the courageous decision to be seen. With images and personal stories they reveal their naked truth to themselves and the world.
We’re surrounded by manipulative media messages about beauty that are designed to make us believe we are not good enough as we are.
I created The Embody Project as an antidote to the insecurity that comes from an image obsessed culture. With honest photography and inspiring personal stories, The Embody Project offers a radically healthy perspective on being human.
I hope these examples of personal transformation and healing will touch your heart and encourage you to embrace yourself, exactly as you are.
I invite you to experience The Embody Project and see humanity through a refreshing new perspective.
– ERICA MUELLER
Creator of The Embody Project
But my true desire is for the freedom that is found when seeing my body, not as good or bad, but as my own. The arms that hold the ones I love. The hands that write. The legs that stretch and toes that curl, when everything in the world seems right.
To be embodied, is to believe that what I am is what I’m meant to be. I am milky white, and bourbon on the rocks. I am soft and warm, and notebooks upon notebooks filled with thoughts.
I am freckled. I am a quiet spot by the window. I am wide hips and black coffee. I am full breasts and conversation that gets to the heart. I am red hair and dance, dance, dancing all night long. I am a myriad of flaws entangled with a rapturing, fiery hunger for life.COME HOME TO YOURSELF
"Here, I let go of what once mattered, of things that younger bodies dream of and older bodies fear. No matter what I think about myself and no matter what the world thinks when they see me, somehow I have played a creative part by doing this project."
"I am so grateful for this opportunity to embody my body in this newfound way. I know my process may take days, months, years or maybe my entire life as I learn to fully live and love. To embody is to make a choice, to breathe in the space in between; to soak up stillness with toe curling contentment, as well as wide spread arms."
"My relationship with my body is so real. It's not a love affair all the time. Sometimes I hate my body. Sometimes I wish I had a different one, or I wish this was different or that was different. Sometimes I’m so in love with my body and feel like my body is so precious and so valuable."
“There is a time of being appreciative for what you do have, for yourself and outside of yourself. Being embodied includes the mind heart and spirit. Being black and sothern in america, my self image was carved out by family and community. Everything spoke, even nature and said that you are somebody, that you came here for a purpose.”
"Our ambition is to touch as many people as possible around the world. Your support for the book and project helps us foster a deeper sense of self-love and self-acceptance in the world that naturally leads to a deeper love and appreciation for all humanity." – Erica Mueller (Creator: The Embody Project)
"The Embody Project is here to heal your self image. It will liberate you and those you care about from the harmful impact of manipulative media messages about beauty." – David Bollt (Founder: Model Society)
