An interactive, conversational workshop on the power of buying out of the arbitrary physical ideal, the joy of embracing a larger spectrum of beauty, and the truly revolutionary act of loving one’s body. Speaks about beauty as a social construct, the roots of shame as a consumer tool, how shame impacts our daily lives in ways we don’t often instantly recognize, and how shame/pressure of conformance is a weapon of mass distraction. Exercises include word associations exploring our personal definitions of beauty, examining those for hidden prejudice, exploring our childhood definitions of beauty and seeing if we can pinpoint the time in our lives when our personal definitions conformed to societal standards.
90 minute workshop or 60 minute presentation.
