It IS Possible to Feel Less Crappy About Your Body Image

Negative body image plagues most women and many men.

It’s a truth that makes me sad but an issue I care deeply about because negative body image threatens our capacity to follow our passions, feel connected to and accepted by others, and experience joy. Negative body image is not a matter of vanity because it alters the very core of our identity and represents our greatest fears as humans – are we acceptable, can we be loved, are we safe?​​​​​​​

I can imagine that if you are reading this, you have already worked to feel differently about your body. You’ve read books, you’ve cultivated an awesome Instagram feed, and you are trying to be more positive. Perhaps some of that has helped and perhaps you still feel disappointed that your body image remains such a thorn in your side.

Learning to work with negative body image is SO VERY HARD and is precisely why I teamed up with the inspiring Deb Schachter, LICSW, to create our upcoming, day long body image workshop. Together we have crafted a day of healing to give you a new language of relating to your body, a new paradigm to use when you are hit with those bad body image moments, and more tools to employ when you feel like junk! We teach you how to decode the meaning behind those terrible body image feelings and how to work through them with greater compassion and hopefulness.

We would love to invite you to our workshop. And we totally get if the word “workshop” makes you want to runnnn!!!!! Don’t worry – you’ll be in the best of company. This stuff is vulnerability inducing but you won’t be asked to do anything you don’t want to. You can take what you want and leave the rest. This is a no pressure space of curiosity, support, and growth.

If you’d like to learn more, head on over to my website. You will find a link to the registration on that page. We hope you’ll consider spending the day with us!
