Upcoming Seasonal Workshops
Our workshops are free and open to all genders: women, men, trans and non-binary people ages 16 and up, including our clients, community members, families, and service providers. You do not need to have an eating disorder to attend, only a desire to have a more balanced and peaceful relationship with food and your body.
We are now offering virtual workshops! Workshops will be held on Microsoft Teams. A computer, tablet or smartphone is required to virtually participate.
