TAKING UP SPACE is an e-course for WOMEN.
On the surface? It’s about BODY IMAGE.
But really? It’s about BODY LOVE and LIKING OUR BODIES AS THEY ARE.
It’s designed for women who struggle to FEEL BEAUTIFUL IN WORLD WITH AN UNREALISTIC AND UNATTAINABLE FEMALE BEAUTY IDEAL.
Largely through the media, society has a narrow view of feminine beauty and women who do not embody this are perceived and more importantly perceive themselves as unattractive and less than. Girls grow up hate their bodies and grow into women who punish their bodies through a never ending cycle of deprivation and bingeing.
I want to challenge this ideal of feminine beauty.
I want to challenge and explore the social constructs we know as beauty, thinness, fatness and sexy.
I want women to stop hating and punishing their bodies.
I want women to listen to, and begin having conversations with, their bodies because …
… loving everything about ourselves and our bodies, even, including and especially the parts we find unacceptable, is an act of personal power and the beginning of healing.
I want that for every single woman.
In TAKING UP SPACE, we explore the following topics:
Messages we tell ourselves about our bodies ~ what are they and where do they come from?
Nourishing and nurturing our bodies ~ physically, mentally, and spiritually?
Getting and staying connected with our bodies.
Connecting with other women who also struggle with body image and body love.
