Working with Bias, Addressing Body Shame
A day of workshops for anyone with a professional or personal interest in body liberation for health-justice
Venue: Quaker Meeting House, 59 Wandsworth High St, London, SW18 2PT
9.30am – 12.30pm with Kimberly Dark
During this workshop, participants can expect an exploration of unconscious bias and how it influences each of our lives, how it leads us to uphold cultural values with which we may not even consciously agree. Kimberly will offer tools for working with bias—in ourselves and others—so that we can treat all bodies with care and welcome. We’ll also practice with language and approaches that increase inclusion, acknowledge the oppressor and oppressed within and practice compassion for both.
1.30pm – 4.30pm with Kimberly Dark & Lucy Aphramor
A facilitated open-space forum. We’ll start with taught content and use this to move into discussion shaped by participants’ interests and concerns. An opportunity to trouble-shoot challenges as we deepen our shared understanding around how to approach food, health and body respect to promote personal and collective healing.
