Virtual Session, 9:30-11am PT

What if your body wasn’t something to fear, perfect, shame, or overcome?

What if your body, in all its beauty and brokenness, was meant to be loved?

In this hour-long workshop, we will begin to explore the stories we have about our bodies with curiosity and kindness. There will be reflection, discussion, and an embodied contemplative practice. If you have a fraught relationship with your body—or no relationship at all—this workshop may be a helpful first step.
