Transition from Body Conscious to Body Confident
A five-part workshop series to restore body acceptance, make peace with food and connect with a supportive community
What's in Each Embodied Workshop?
Over two hours of different therapeutic support groups per workshop with varied curated topics. Make friends and talk about body image with people who get it.
Creative Arts Activities
Calligraphy, clothing embellishment, meditation, improv, and acting! Different ways to get creative and make space for your exciting life outside of focusing on your body image led by local professionals.
Make peace with food with the support of those around you and learn how to connect with others over a shared, catered meal. Cara will also be providing a sneak peek with recipes from her upcoming cookbook!
The Embodied workshop series is on the last Saturday of the Month from 2-8pm, January – May 2019. That’s 6 hours of intensive therapeutic support groups for an unbeatable price, with the coolest workshop leaders around. Come find who you truly are!
Embodied is for me if:
I'm looking for a community of people who understand what it's like to struggle with body image, disordered eating, or chronic dieting
I'm struggling to accept myself and feel overwhelmed with body conscious thoughts
I like the idea of combining talking about my issues with doing therapeutic activities as well
I'm motivated to make changes and I'm looking for some intensive support
I'm struggling with disordered eating and/or chronic dieting and I want to make 2019 the year that I break free
What is Embodied?
It is a series of 5 intensive workshops (once a month for 5 months) that will help you heal your body image & relationship with food.
Each workshop includes a Mind, Body, Spirit holistic approach:
Mind: A welcoming, fun and fresh group therapy session to connect with others who understand what you’re going through
Body: A shared meal to face triggers together with the support you need to regain the joy of eating a meal with friends
Spirit: Develop new interests and hobbies like yoga, dance, improv, crafts, astrology, calligraphy, and poetry to refocus your purpose!
