Join us at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in beautiful Natick, Massachusetts for a powerful and transformational weekend with The Body Positive.

“What makes the Body Positive Movement so brilliant in my eyes, is its ability to simultaneously amplify messages of compassion and self-love, while also creating long-standing synergies of support and collective. Ideas such as ‘Reclaiming Health’ or ‘Cultivating Self-Love’ empower individuals, and safeguard their new-found strength with the support of an entire movement behind them. It changes your mindset from one of critical comparison to one that seeks and sees universal beauty, in yourself and others.”

— Delphi Cleaveland, Cornell University Be Body Positive Leader
