Healthism and Nutritionism is Not Helping with your Healing
Sunday November 10th
This workshop is open to ALL people, including those in the health and healing professions as well as those, like us, who have been impacted by healthism and nutritionism in our own relationships to our bodies. We’ll define what healthism and nutritionism is and how it interferes with true healing. You will have the option to meet again for another virtual workshop in 2020 with Ilya Parker (@decolonizingfitness) to delve deeper into this important topic.

This group might be engaging for you if these questions resonate:
Do you find yourself choosing foods based on whether they are good, bad or clean?
Do you inhabit a disabled, fat or chronically ill body that is judged for being bad, weak or lacking in discipline?
Do you work with people in your professional life who negatively judge others who aren’t healthy?
Do you intellectually disagree that health is not entirely in your own hands, but find yourself making decisions in your life that are driven by an imperative to constantly improve your health?
