Body Pride is a 3 hour workshop where women, or anyone female-identifying, come together for a facilitated conversation about body image, sexuality and relationships. The goal is to de-sexualize nakedness and to heal body shame, thereby empowering us to enjoy the pleasure we have the capacity to feel. Done in the nude, the event culminates in a naked dance party and (optional) photo shoot.
In This Workshop, We Will:
We will gather together in a safe and sacred circle of sisterhood to talk and to share and to heal. Some of the questions we will cover are: what messages have you received about sexuality over the years, what was it like to grow up as you in regards to sexuality, what is your relationship to your body? This event will be joyful, playful and honoring.
The evening will culminate with a naked dance party and photo shoot. This feels GREAT after all the stories and sharing. The photo shoot is completely optional but super empowering! We each have the power to transform ourselves into healthier, authentic and loving beings.
Body Pride will help you normalize nudity and ditch body shame. Learn to accept your body exactly as it is! Mark your Calendar and Join Us in a sacred Loving Circle!
