This week I attended Dr Katherine's No Bull$shit body confidence talk and panel discussion and from the second I walked in the door I was blown away.
Dr Katherine is a highly qualified and very well respected body confidence expert based here in Perth. Hailing from Canada her approach to the subject is refreshingly honest as she has lived through the body confidence struggles that some of us face today. Her personal experience coupled with her academic knowledge has allowed her to help women (and men) to accept and love themselves and begin to forge a path to the happiest life that they can possibly live.
Greeted with a hug from Dr Katherine I immediately felt at ease and that I was in a safe environment. Her positive energy was infectious and her genuine care for all of the people in the room was clearly evident.
Body confidence has been a struggle for women all through the ages but now in the age of social media I personally think it has hit its peak. We are constantly bombarded with imagery, both in mainstream media and on social media, of somewhat unattainable beauty and I can only speak for myself here but it can be exhausting and frankly damaging to your mental health and your every day happiness.
As part of the panel discussion Dr Katherine invited two women who had previously taken part in her 2 day body confidence retreat. The women spoke about how their lives had been impacted by taking part in this retreat and how what they had learned about themselves had changed their outlook, not only on life, but more importantly their relationships with themselves. Again, I can only speak for myself but I was greatly moved by their words and motivated to take action in my own life.
Dr Katherine is running her 2 day retreat again in the amazing setting of Perth Zoo on the 23rd and 24th of September 2017.
The early bird tickets are now available from her website here and the investment is $395. There is an option of reserving your spot for $150 and paying the balance before the retreat.
Over the course of the two days you can expect 17 hours of exclusive content to improve your relationship with your body (9am to 5.30pm over 2 full days).
I have already bought my ticket and I am counting the days.
