- Are you ashamed of your plus-sized body, or always putting things on hold until you lose weight?
- Do you wonder why you can't just lose the weight or keep it off?
- Do you feel out of control around food, or like you're always “falling off the wagon”?
- Are you curious what body positivity, Health At Every Size, and intuitive eating might look like in your life?
In this two day workshop taking place Saturday December 9th and Sunday December 10th, 2017, we will take some time to thoughtfully unpack the way our culture and the diet roller coaster have impacted us as people in larger bodies, and explore ways to foster freedom and joy living in our bodies right now.
We’ll help you explore your current beliefs about weight, diets, food, and movement and reflect on whether they’re serving you well. You’ll then learn practical strategies for cultivating a more peaceful and satisfying relationship with food and your body.
Expect space for feelings, individual and group work, and a bit of art (no drawing skills necessary!). You’ll leave with inspiration and knowledge, ideas for finding non-diet community, and a concrete plan for incorporating these new ideas into your life.
(This workshop is intended for people with a history of chronic dieting, but it isn’t right for you if you’re dealing with an active, clinically diagnosed eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or binge eating disorder.)

We have two scholarships available for those with marginalized identities who would not otherwise be able to attend. Contact us for details.
