David Bedrick, JD, Dipl. PW is an author, speaker, teacher and expert on the topics of shame, night time dreams, weight loss and body image, diversity and social injustice, and alternative psychological paradigms.
David on Shame...
“To be a loving witness, for me, is to reteach a thing its loveliness; to find the seed of becoming in each thing and shine upon it the light of my heart and mind until it has even one moment of knowing itself as worthy, beautiful, intelligent, moral, and true.”
David on Psychology’s Calling…
“Psychology has fallen prey to serving, accommodating, the status quo. In so doing, it whitewashes our pain and suffering, empties itself of any spiritual footing, and fails to recognize our most important life project—to be authentic human beings following our own authentic paths. It promises ‘success,’ but not truth or real love.”
David on Weight Loss…
“I reject any weight loss strategy that doesn’t help a woman love herself more even if she never loses a single pound.”
David on the Soul…
"What if the soul were like an inner activist—
creating imbalance, finding sustenance in
illness, moving you not only into the light
but also into the darkness, and leaving you
unsure of your most cherished beliefs?
Would you still follow her?"
