About the Event

In Your Body, Your Friend, Erica Mather offers a blueprint for embodied body image work. Very different from typical cognitive body image work, Mather offers exercises and prompts to inhabit your body differently, to feel into the parts of yourself you might currently feel are scary or off limits, and to develop a new perspective of the purpose of and your relationship with your body. This webinar will be a discussion between the author and moderator Jenna Hollenstein, MS, RDN, and will encourage plenty of interaction.

Learning Objectives

  1. Define the difference between embodied body image work and typical cognitive body image work
  2. Identify three triggers for negative body image thoughts
  3. Identify three forms of embodied self care

She was trained to teach Shamatha meditation by Susan Piver, creator of the online meditation community, the Open Heart Project.
