In April, I'll begin offering my first round of Body Liberation Basics classes FREE OF CHARGE to anyone curious about what this whole Body Positive/ Health at Every Size/ Intuitive Eating/ Anti-Diet Movement is all about.
With almost 25 years of experience teaching adults in a college setting, I am creating a course for you that will pull together many of the essential elements of the entire Body Liberation Movement. Through engaging lectures and active discussions, we will answer questions like: Why don't Diets work? What is Diet Culture and Feast Culture? How do we find Authentic Health? What is Fat Phobia? What is Body Diversity? Is Intuitive Eating really just about eating donuts 24/7, 365 days a year? How can we learn to trust our bodies? What is "gentle nutrition" and "joyful movement"? And, what are the long-term emotional, mental and physical benefits of being a bonafide, badass health rebel?
It IS possible to find a lot of these answers online. You could waste many endless days scrolling through facebook and instagram feeds. But at the end of all of that scrolling, you might feel more confused than ever. As a long-time college professor, what I know for sure is that face-to-face instruction, discussion and opportunity to ask questions of a knowledgable facilitator is SACRED and simply cannot be replaced by memes, click-bait and the comments of internet trolls. Small groups of people gathering together around a well-researched topic about which they are all curious creates TRANSFORMATIONAL learning. This kind of learning does not take place in most online formats.
I've been told many times that when you offer something for free, people think it must not be worth a dime. Well, I can assure you that the information provided and the life-changing education you will receive in these classes will be priceless. I've seen many classes like this online for a pretty penny. For me, this series is a pilot in which I can launch the framework for my Body Liberation Training program. I don't think I will offer the entire series, in this wide of a scope, for free again. So, if you're worried you're getting a free golden ring that isn't worth a dime, rest assured this opportunity is much more like a golden ticket to a priceless experience that will have long-lasting transformational consequences on how you live your life.
Since these classes are designed to be an entire 6-week course, they will build on one another. But, registration is open for individual sessions if you find that some of the dates conflict with your schedule. Just know that to receive the full education and experience, attending all 6 sessions is highly recommended. If you're interested in registering for all (or some) of the series, go to our schedulicity site (by clicking on the green box below) and looking under "workshops."
Space is limited to just 10 people so if you think you're interested, reserve your spot today! This is going to be an amazing experience. I can't wait to get started with you!
