Feel In Control Around Food Workshop

DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH EMOTIONAL EATING?

Tired of eating really fast, standing up? Can’t keep snacks in the house? Think you have a willpower problem?

Join me and learn how to manage emotional and stress eating with curiosity, intuition, and self-care. So you can feel in control around food, and end the guilt and shame.

You’ll learn about:

  • The biological and emotional causes of over-eating

  • Why emotional eating has been your solution, not your problem

  • Why diets don’t work and what to do instead

  • How to keep any food in the house (yes, even chips and ice cream)

You’ll walk away with:

  • Evidence-based facts on why diets don’t work

  • Practical tips on how to have a more loving, joyful relationship with food

  • Insights on your biological and emotional triggers

  • A deeper understanding of how to tap into your intuition

This is for you if:

  • You’ve tried #allthethings—paleo, keto, intermittent fasting, celery juice, Whole30, WW—but still feel stuck and frustrated

  • You say things like “I have no willpower”

  • You’re ashamed of your late-night binges (...and the crumbs in your bed)

  • You want to learn how to eat without guilt and shame

What do you need to bring? Nothing! Just yourself.

Paint for Self-Acceptance

NO ART EXPERIENCE NEEDED. you just have to show up and be willing to explore this intimate feeling with me.

Hey Toronto. Here we go. A workshop on this giant & oh so important topic. Self-acceptance is the pillar of our storytelling. The stories we tell ourselves and what we are willing to share with others. It’s an arena we can easily sabotage and just as easily we can slowly bring into our lives.
Join me and my wonderful community on May 11th as we explore self-acceptance. What it means and how we can love ourselves a little bit harder moving forward. ♥️In this two hour workshop we will journal self-acceptance and paint two illustrations based off of the journaling we do. This is such a wonderful practice to tap in and get to know ourselves a little bit better in order to see where our self-acceptance and self-love can improve.

In this space, everyone is welcome. ❤️

Sonya Renee Taylor: The Body Is Not An Apology

Please join NEDIC and Sonya Renee Taylor for an exploration of the debilitating shame that people around the world live with as a result of the psychological attacks that our social and media machines wage against us, leading to eating disorders, addictions, stigma, racism, homophobia, ableism, sizeism, ageism, transphobia, mass self-hatred, and senseless violence as a result of body hatred.

Sonya's revolutionary movement, The Body is Not an Apology, seeks to engage people in the individual work that fosters self-love — and, just as importantly, seeks to dismantle the structural and systemic emotional, psychological, and physical violence that plays out against “different” bodies all over the planet.

Let's heal our shame, love our bodies, value ourselves, and step into our power!

This event is sponsored by Aerie.
