      Description
      “Radical and revolutionary.” —Jonny Sun, New York Times bestselling author of Goodbye, Again



      A collection of powerful interconnected essays and affirmations that follow Mimi Zhu’s journey toward embodying and re-learning love after a violent romantic relationship, a stunning and provocative book that will guide and inspire readers to lean into love with softness


      In their early twenties, Mimi Zhu was a survivor of intimate-partner abuse. This left them broken, in search of healing and ways to re-learn love. This work is a testament to the strength and adaptability all humans possess, a tribute to love. Be Not Afraid of Love explores the intersections of love and fear in self-esteem, friendship, family dynamics, and romantic relationships, and extends out to its effects on society and the greater political realm. In sharing their own intimate encounters with oppression, healing, joy, and community, Mimi invites readers to reflect deeply on their own experiences as well, with the intention of acting as a guide to undoing the hurt or uncertainty within them. In this heartrending and revolutionary book, Mimi reminds us, be not afraid of love.

      Praise for Mimi Zhu and Be Not Afraid of Love

      “Zhu has found a way to lift the veil on the feelings and phenomena we experience but haven’t figured out a way to articulate to ourselves—let alone to the world—and uses their writing as both a mirror and a doorway: reflecting these parts back to us and inviting us in to process them together.”
      —Los Angeles Times

      “A radical and revolutionary act of love, transcendently written. Mimi Zhu writes about love in a way that is tender and caring and healing—they contextualize love not as an abstract sentiment but as a grounded and spiritual act intimately tied to every aspect of what we fight for.”
      —Jonny Sun, New York Times bestselling author of Goodbye, Again
       
      “Tender, insightful, and deeply affirming. These precious chapters are a nourishing constellation of hope, truths, new light, and the words on love and fellowship that we need; have always needed.” 
      —Yrsa Daley-Ward, poet and author of bone, The Terrible, and The How
       
      “Zhu conveys their story with such honesty and clarity that it forges connections to your heart straight through the page. With incredible strength they lay out not only the darkness of their experiences with assault but also their path to love, to full acceptance of their past, of their emotions, and in the end, themself. Be Not Afraid of Love brings forward wisdom teachings like impermanence and the law of karma in a way that is accessible and relatable to a new generation. This book is bound to help those who are ready to reclaim their power.” 
      —Yung Pueblo, New York Times bestselling author of Clarity & Connection
       
      “Poetic, luminous, and expansive, Be Not Afraid of Love guides the reader on a vital journey towards healing. Pulling from their own experience and their keen understanding of the systems that distort our collective understanding of love, Mimi Zhu writes with stunning honesty. This book is a moving meditation on what it means to move through shame, fear, anxiety, grief and so much more in order to truly find and accept love—from our community and from ourselves. Be Not Afraid of Love is both a question and an answer, beckoning the reader to interrogate the power of love, the utility of love. In this deeply wounded world, anyone and everyone thinking about how to improve our collective futures should read this book.”
      –Zeba Blay, author of Carefree Black Girls
       
      “Mimi Zhu’s Be Not Afraid of Love is the kind of book that is effused with such candor and care that the words themselves become a salve. Zhu’s generosity to delve into their own life and circumstance to speak to the necessity of investing in love, in finding it in oneself, is such a tender and ripe offering. This is a book written for the community in an effort to help us all tend to ourselves in a deeper and more honestly profound way. This book will sit close to my heart for a long time. I am so grateful for Zhu’s words, mind, and existence.” 
      —Fariha Róisín, author of Like a Bird, How to Cure a Ghost, and Who Is Wellness For?

      “The author’s bracing candor and perceptive insights into the psyches of abusers and the abused make for an unflinching and heartening account of recovering from intimate partner violence. Powerful and unique, this offers a nuanced perspective on what it means to love others and oneself.”

      Description
      An at-home mindful movement practice—cultivate resilience, dispel emotional blockages, and live your best life with the power of movement.

      When we talk about movement, most of us think “exercise.” But the way we move our bodies—how we walk, roll, dance, stretch, connect, and take up space—is about so much more than physical fitness. Our movements impact our mental and emotional health…and when we change the way we move, we can change the way we live.

      Licensed clinical professional counselor and board-certified dance and movement therapist Erica Hornthal—aka “The Therapist Who Moves You”—takes readers on a step-by-step journey, showing how a mindful movement practice can:
      • Help ease symptoms of depression
      • Build a greater sense of connection and intimacy with loved ones
      • Slow down thoughts to lessen anxiety and panic
      • Impact how—and what—we feel
      Readers will learn to identify where they physically hold their emotions; understand and interpret their body’s unique language; explore bodily sensations; identify emotional blockages; and upgrade harmful thought cycles to patterns that instead foster resilience, emotional regulation, and productivity. With a chapter on disability and movement diversity, Hornthal’s guide begins to move dance therapy to a more inclusive, non-prescriptive space, helping each of us discover the kind of movement that works best for us.

      Broken into three sections, “How You Move,” “How Movement is a Catalyst for Change,” and “Transforming Your Life Through Movement,” Body Aware is a revelatory transformational practice and an easy-to-use introduction to the mind-body power of intentional movement.
