Why is exploring body image important?
How we feel about ourselves and our bodies shapes our self-esteem as well as how we interact with others and the world around us. For this reason it is important to explore how we have come to feel the way we do about ourselves and create the opportunity to challenge and transform any limiting self-beliefs.
In what way can participants hope to benefit?
The aim of the workshop is to facilitate a felt-sense of self-value and body-acceptance, providing women with the resources to build a healthy relationship with themselves and their bodies, to emerge from the workshop with the foundations on which to continue to develop being comfortable in their bodies and as such, more comfortable in the world.
