Courageous Body Acceptance - The Discussion
Friday, July 13, 7-9pm

Courageous Body Acceptance - The Interactive Experience
Thursday, July 19, 7-9pm

Are you often uncomfortable in your own skin? Do you feel like your body will never measure up to the unrealistic standards by which you and others judge it? Do you feel like your body has betrayed you?

Our bodies are indeed under attack! Judgment, perfectionism, and look-ism are at an all-time high in the media. How a person looks and what a person wears can be criticized instantly to millions in a single tweet. In this virulent climate, can anyone hope to ever feel good about their body?

Without a doubt, what we believe about our bodies is what we believe about ourselves. These beliefs can have a definitive effect on not only our daily lives, but for the rest of our lives as well. Feeling actually good about our physical state seems almost impossible.

Join Dr. Rix in a lively discussion and workshop while he visits New York from California and he addresses the struggle men can have enjoying and celebrating their bodies. In these consensual safe spaces, you will take tangible steps towards a courageous and positive body image, regardless of shape, size or age. Build a stronger sex-esteem and body image. You might be closer than you think to breaking through negative beliefs and stepping into deeper body confidence and self-love, so join us!

July 13: Courageous Body Acceptance - The Discussion

This discussion provides you plenty of body positive content, tips and tricks to move your perspective into a more compassionate approach to body acceptance and enjoyment. We benefit from each other’s experiences, so your stories and struggle are valued, too. You will come away with lots of new angles and helpful ideas to enjoy a stronger body positivity.

July 19: Courageous Body Acceptance - The Interactive Experience

This clothing-optional workshop puts body positivity into action. Not only will we talk about more accessible models of self-love, we will practice them in consensual interactive exercises and surprisingly fun experiments. Do you want to feel good about your body? Then join us and experience greater body freedom like never before!
