welcome to the body positive!

We are creating a world in which people value their unique identities and are liberated from self-hatred so they can optimize their energy and intellect to make positive changes in their own lives, communities, and beyond. Since 1996, The Body Positive has been re-connecting youth and adults to their innate body wisdom for more balanced, joyful self-care and a relationship with their whole selves that is guided by love, forgiveness, and humor.

Our Model

The Be Body Positive Model is comprised of five core Competencies, the fundamental skills we can practice on a daily basis to live peacefully and healthfully in our bodies. When we become proficient—competent—at using these skills, we are able to care for our whole selves from a place of self-love and appreciation, which allows us to act on our purpose and life goals.

We teach our model by training professionals, educators, student leaders, and community activists at Be Body Positive two-day trainings, and through our book Embody and public events.

THIS IS BEAUTY

A radical reimagining of what beauty is, where it can be found, and how each of us can welcome it into our lives.
