Happy HAES Holidays Workshop | Dances With Fat

Whether you celebrate a holiday or not, this time of year can be a really stressful for people who practice Size Acceptance and/or Health at Every Size. Tons of mixed messages around food, dealing with family, trying to set weight neutral resolutions and goals while everyone else is starting their new diet. I’ve put together a group of speakers to give you information and ideas to support you having a happy holiday season.

The HAES® Master Class, Sept 20-21

HAES Master Class

Welcome To The HAES® Master Class!

I received my Body Love Wellness email from Golda Poretsky the other day & in it was an announcement about the upcoming HAES Master Class, a two day online workshop with numerous speakers from the HAES-sphere.

In this HAES® Master Class you will meet the experts at the forefront of HAES® research and practice. Collectively, we’ve worked with thousands of people just like you, who have implemented HAES® principles and no longer face a daily battle with food, weight, and the scale. In this engaging two-day event, you will discover simple ways to improve your health and well-being without the stress of dieting.

Along with Ms. Poretsky, the list of speakers will include Ragen Chastain (Dances With Fat, Fit Fatties Forum), Marilyn Wann (Fat!so?, pictured above), Linda Bacon, Anna Guest-Jelley (Curvy Yoga), & Jeanette DePatie (The Fat Chick, Fit Fatties Forum).  There will be sixteen leaders of the HAES movement speaking in all.

Tickets are $97, or you can pay in two installments of $48.50.  I can’t do it, but if anyone does I would love to hear how it goes!
