Better Body Image Conference 2019

Sunday, February 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $40.00

A day full of body-positivity, resources for healing your relationship with your body, and community building.

About this Event:
Do you struggle with negative self-talk and body image? Are you already body-positive and looking for others who share that view? Are you ready to reject diet-culture (or learn what diet culture is and how it’s all around us)?

No matter where you are on your body-acceptance journey, we have something for you. Buy your ticket for a day full of community building, information gathering, healing, and embodiment!

You will leave with broadened perspectives, expanded resources, and new friends!
