A step-by-step holistic approach to eating disorder recovery, using self-compassion and embodiment practices to reduce symptoms, increase body awareness and acceptance, reconnect to others, and step back into an integrated life.

Those who struggle with disordered eating often find themselves in an unrelenting cycle of harsh self-judgment, painful emotions, and harmful behaviors. Seeing the body as an adversary, these patterns can lead many people to become withdrawn or isolated. Ann Saffi Biasetti’s powerful holistic approach to liberating people from disordered eating focuses on growing self-compassion and embodiment. This insight, informed by yoga and mindfulness meditation, views the body not just as something to be healed or restored but as a source of great wisdom and knowledge.

Dr. Biasetti offers yoga-based movement, body-awareness practices, meditations, and journaling exercises to help release long-held habits of self-criticism and perfectionism. Her step-by-step program will rebuild self-compassion, self-care, body awareness, acceptance, and connection to the self and to others. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • Ann Saffi Biasetti, like all the best teachers of self-compassion, shares her teaching through her loving connected presence. You can feel it when you are in her presence and you can feel it in the pages of this warm, supportive, and encouraging book. Drawing upon the latest science related to self-compassion and its role in well-being, wellness and health, Ann weaves this knowledge and wisdom into a practical guide to finding a new relationship between you and your body: the most important (and often the most conflicted) relationship a human being can have. Ann teaches how having a warm and encouraging relationship with ourselves can then allow us to make change, not because we aren’t good enough as we are, but because we long for something better. Reading this book is motivating, encouraging, inspiring and most of all, compassionate. You’ll be glad you followed this path with the author. Steven D. Hickman, PsyD., Associate Clinical Professor, University of California at San Diego, Executive Director, Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, Founding Director, UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness
  • Dr. Biasetti’s work hits the sweet spot where self-compassion training and eating disorder recovery intersect—the body—and she shows how compassionate, embodied awareness heals. Christopher Germer, PhD, author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion
  • Befriending Your Body is a valuable resource for creating a new relationship with your body and with food. Full of meditation, yoga, and self-compassion practices, this wise and loving book will be a much needed antidote to body-shaming and self-loathing which plague so many women. This book is a healing gift. Dr. Susan Pollak, co-author of Sitting Together: Essential Skills for Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy, President, Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, co-founder, Center for Mindfulness and Compassion, Harvard Medical School.
  • This book could become a treasured friend to those in recovery from any sort of eating disorder. New Spirit Journal
