About the Healing Circle: It can be overwhelming to navigate a culture as abundant in food as it is moral judgments about eating it. You might feel knocked down by the bombardment of unrealistic body ideals, an abundant and highly-rewarding food environment, body shaming messages, and fat- and diet-talk all around you. On your own, the voice within that says, "I want to be at peace," can seem like a mere whisper. One stick is easily broken. But a bundle of sticks is not so easy to break. Join our online circle where you can be part of an unbreakable bundle of learning and support to help you reclaim a positive body image, healthy eating patterns, and whole-self wellness. Each week, we cover relevant topics that assist you to create the internal conditions for wellness including mindset change, emotion and eating regulation skills, social justice, mindful eating, normalizing eating patterns, and rebuilding a positive body image.
Dress comfortably and bring a notebook or journal for each session. Participation is limited. Facilitated by eating and body image expert Have questions about the group? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
