Body Shame, Eating, and Self-Love: A New Year Diet Supplement

Body Shame, Eating, and Self-Love:

A New Year Diet Supplement

Neither shame nor self-criticism will lead to a lasting change in our weight, physical conditioning, or eating habits. Even if it works for a short while, we snap back to our old ways. What’s the magic ingredient? Self-love. But loving our bodies (as they are), loving our eating habits (as they are), loving ourselves (as we are) is no easy task. Yet that is where we must start!

This group is designed to foster in you the serious and powerful loving you need in order to make sustainable change. This is not a diet program; it is a supplement to any program you undertake to change your weight, body, or eating habits.

SAFETY AND VULNERABILITY: Participating in a class like this can be scary for some. I understand that, which is why the first class will focus on our vulnerabilities and creating a safe, shame free, environment for us to go deeply into the learning. Participants of my classes always report being awed by the way I and others create such a loving and judgement-free space to grow in.
