Details

There is something magical that happens when women gather in circle to dance. We have the opportunity to let go of roles, responsibilities and masks we wear in the world, and drop in to the power of authentic, vulnerable connection. We fall in love with ourselves and each other.

You are invited to gather in an intimate circle of women for an afternoon of dropping deeply into the intuitive wisdom of your body as a powerful tool for self-healing. We will boldly engage in experiences including touch, contact, ritual, prayer - and of course dance - to inspire deep, meaningful connections with ourselves, others and the world around us.

LOCATIONS

OCT 28th 2017 | Private home in Travis Heights neighborhood

What Did You Eat? Mothers, Daughters and Diets
with Dr Anita Johnston

women's movment meditation

Sunday January 17th, 2016
2:00 to 3:15 pm

Girls these days are faced with intense pressure to look perfect as unobtainable images of the “ideal body” are promoted everywhere in the media. How do we insulate our girls from the lack of body confidence and
low self-esteem that is the inevitable result of such pressure?

This talk addresses how to:
> Understand and deal with thoughts and feelings about physical appearance
> Explore/discuss influences on body image, with particular focus on media
> Practice listening to and appreciating our female bodies
> Create body trust, and become aware of the dangers of dieting

How can mothers help? What do daughters need to know?

Dr. Johnston is a recognized international workshop presenter, lecturing widely to professional organizations, universities, medical institutions, and the community at large. In her work, she uses metaphor and storytelling in addition to her training as a clinical psychologist to explain the complex issues that underlie disordered eating behavior.
