2nd Annual Body Love Revolutionaries Telesummit

Remember the kindred spirit we met during our snorkeling adventure in Mantigue Island, Camiguin last year? Liza and I reconnected in the blogosphere and talked about body acceptance. Imagine my delight when she sent me an event invite to the 2nd Annual Body Love Revolutionaries Telesummit. Very interesting!

The details below are copy-pasted from the event page and the image is obtained from the official website.

Attention: Plus-sized people (and allies) who want to change the status quo!

We are bombarded with messages about our bodies and our health every day. We're told to diet, no matter what that might do to our bodies. We're told to wear clothes that "look slimming" no matter what that might do to our self esteem. We're told to wait to be thinner before we do what we want, no matter what that might do to our lives.

And yet, there are lots of us who are working to change the status quo. Whether we do it through activism, or fashion, or exposing diet industry politics, or just finding ways to live our lives outside the boundaries that we're supposed to accept, we are part of something bigger than ourselves. It is a revolution in the truest sense.

So Golda of Body Love Wellness has assembled a group of 20 (!) amazing people who are at the forefront of this revolution for this free telesummit.

We’ve got Dr. Linda Bacon talking about the science of Health At Every Size (R), we've got Paul Campos talking about diet politics, we’ve got Marilyn Wann talking activism, we’ve got IGIGI founder Yuliya Raquel talking fatshion and that’s just the beginning.

You can register for free and get free access to the live calls and access to the download of the call for 24 hours, or you can get a sliding scale all access pass to the downloads through March 30th.
