Food & Body Freedom Support Group

July 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

$150

I hear you. I hear your questions and sorrows and frustration and humiliation and failure around food choices and body image. A group has been  created for you get support around these constant feelings.

  1. Are you constantly searching for just the right eating plan (finally!) that’s doable and lets you lose weight for good?
  2. Do you have a history of Weight Watchers, Overeater Anonymous, Paleo, Whole 30, Keto?
  3. Do you know why you’re still searching?
  4. Would you rather be doing something else?

We live in a culture that is preoccupied with changing our body to fit an ideal created eons ago, one that disregards the body diversity we’ve lived with and celebrated for centuries. For many, truthfully most of us, the striving for this ideal is unrealistic. The continuous loop of restriction followed by weight restoration is devastating to our physical and mental health. Meaning that every time we make our body smaller using strict and rigid protocols of deprivation and restriction (aka diets and vigorous exercise plans), and our body rebounds to ‘get back where it was,’ we create internalized fat-phobic shame and once again feel “othered” and like we failed again. This shame puts the next doorknob we reach for within arm’s length, so we begin again. And again. And again.

Sound about right?

This monthly group uses the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model with an intention to ease the struggle inside of you and to create caring relationships between the polarized “dieter” and “f*ck it” eater¾and you. And, to create harmony within that lets you rely on your inner core wisdom and less from parts of you entwined with diet culture and industry.

The monthly IFS Food and Body Freedom Group is one of a collection of folks learning what we can from each other and finding support and camaraderie in our connection and learning. These groups require a 3-month commitment. You’ll experience the support of guided meditations, experiential exercises, and dyads plus large discussion in a setting with others who share similar journeys and stories as you do.

Fee:                 $150 for 3-month series

When:             Monthly on Friday 10 – 11:15am
