Can Your Wardrobe Impact Your Ability to Connect With People? With Liana Chaouli world renowned lecturer and image therapist.Episode 63
In a fascinating interview with Liana Chaouli, Andy Lopata explores the domain of image therapy. Liana believes most people wear clothing as armour when it should be a frame reflecting who we are. She believes we react to expectations, conforming to what we believe society wants and leaving no room for individuality, inner beauty and authenticity.
Clothing should be a tool, bringing out the essence of a person and making them comfortable with themselves. Feeling good about yourself makes it easier to engage and connect with other people. By admitting our vulnerability we can let go of the armour.
