Thank You Body Festival

We are so excited to be hosting ‘The Thank You Body Festival’ on Friday the 12th of July from 10am – 4pm at the Forum, Norwich.
This is a FREE event to celebrate body diversity, inspire self-acceptance and build community.
 The festival also marks the launch of the new ‘Pocket Book of Hope and Transformation – #EmergingProud through disordered eating, poor body image and low self-esteem’. A collection of stories of transformation to inspire hope in overcoming eating difficulties and body image challenges. This is the second book of the Kinda Proud Pocket Books of Hope series.  
 
It will be a body positive gathering of people, to inspire change, challenge social norms and empower people to love and accept the skin they are in.

It’s an interactive and fun day, packed full of embodied movement sessions, story telling, inspirational talks, an ‘Inner Worlds’ art installation, a ‘Wild Woman’ photographic exhibition, well being practitioners, body art  and of course a flash mob!!!

The aim of the day is to create a safe space to honour and empower our relationships with ourselves, our bodies and our food. We will provide opportunities to explore beliefs about body image, the relationships we have with food and also our connection to our well being.

With guest speakers such as Katie Mottram, founder of the #EmergingProud campaign and Sylvia Mac, founder of the Love_Disfigure campaign. Wholesome nourishing food, and a few little extra surprises thrown into the mix, it’s going to be a nourishing and uplifting day of connection!!

SoulShine is a new social enterprise passionate about creating a healthy body image culture in its home town of Norwich. There has been a huge increase recently in the number of people who struggle with their body image, resulting in increases in self harming, eating disorders and depression. SoulShine is tackling the issue of negative body image and its consequences through empowering workshops,  confidence building ‘Body Positive Photo Shoots’ and events like ‘The Thank you body Festival’ that help people to make peace with their body, feel comfortable in their own skin and confident to be who they are.
 
We would be very grateful if you could help spread the word, so we can reach more people and help them transform their relationship with themselves and their bodies.
