Join us in sunny San Diego, California for a life-changing weekend with The Body Positive. It's a perfect place to be during the cold days of winter. You'll leave filled with light, not just from the sun, but also from the connections you'll make and the transformational work you'll learn.

“The Body Positive is important to me because I struggled in high school. Disordered eating and negative body image ruined a large portion of my teenage years. If it weren't for The Body Positive, I never would have let go of my negative habits or self-hate. Now, I am in a much better place and have the confidence to reach out and help others. Who knows how long I would have struggled if it weren't for The Body Positive!”

— Hanna Caisse, Be Body Positive Facilitator
