“You Are Not A Before”

This workshop will focus on finding ways to break the cycle of self-hate, boost our ability to appreciate our bodies, and combat negative self talk. We will cover topics ranging from the body positive movement, “before and after” diet culture, and building up unconditional self worth. Come with an open heart, and leave with a more grounded sense that all bodies are good bodies, including our own.

Bio: Jocelyn is a passionate spoken word artist who uses her voice as a way to find healing through self reflection, as a catalyst for activism, and as a means for reclaiming autonomy. She is a member of Sunrise Movement in Grand Rapids, a teaching artist with the Diatribe, and she’s the current holder of the Drunken Retort’s “Soul of the Show” trophy. She’s all about community and finding joy in local art. Her main goal in life is to empower those without the ability to do so themselves, and to always give as much love to herself as she gives to others.
