Why The Breast Archives Matters

When a woman has a positive attitude and connection to her breasts - the life-giving source for nourishment and pleasure - she is more apt to respect her natural self, listen to her inner wisdom and, ultimately, achieve healthy mental, physical and spiritual development.

Unfortunately, studies show that as many as 85% of women have discontent or shame around their breasts.

The Breast Archives explores this complex relationship in a unique and thought-provoking manner. Nine women bare their breasts and boldly reveal their memories of puberty, experiences of shame, sexual tensions, and the influence of media, religion, and culture on their self-worth and development. By exposing their breasts and expressing their fear-based emotions, these women begin to rid themselves of beliefs that are untrue and limiting. They are moved to express a desire to embrace their inner splendor and learn to listen to its wisdom.

The Breast Archives was produced in order to raise awareness about anxiety and depression so many women and girls experience in regard to their breasts. This powerful documentary creates a new conversation about how women perceive themselves, and it awakens a new consciousness for the instinctive capacity and knowing we carry within us.
