WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: We get to center ourselves and our needs when we consider the lovability of our own bodies. This is a heavily biased, totally sex positive starter kit for an ever-evolving journey towards radically loving the self.
How do we dismiss crumbs and demand a catered feast of our own design? How do we not use weight as an excuse to wait to have a life well lived? This is a delicious reminder that you are the altar upon which your needs and desires can be manifested and maintained. Come and embody all the voluptuous practical and magical power of living in a sovereign body.
This class is open to all bodies and centers sister fatties, bbws and babes of size.
