Exploring Your
Body Story
Online Retreat

We need to claim our stories.

We need to hear untold stories.

Join us for a three-day online weekend retreat with daily workbooks, journaling prompts, recommended readings, and videos to support your retreat experience.

This is where you reclaim your story.


What to expect

Meet live on Zoom October 13-15 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. PDT to learn together.

Hear from guest speakers Savala Nolan and Angela Braxton-Johnson.

Certified Body Trust® Specialists will be present to help hold space and facilitate small breakout groups, giving participants opportunities to share their body stories.

Some retreat material will be pre-recorded and provided to support your experience outside of our time together.

Participants carve out time separate from our live sessions to work with these materials.

What is a Body Story?

It’s the story of your body as you experience it.

It is the story about what it means to live in your body.

Your body has been with you through everything. Every breath you’ve taken…every beat of your heart. It has survived your scrutiny, your shame.

It has been impacted by the oppressive ideas that have been fed to you. It has changed with your relationships, your loves, your fears, and your struggle.

It has survived living in a culture that encourages many to act violently upon their bodies in order to try to fit into a narrowly defined standard of acceptance.

It has underscored your very perception of what it means to be you…and to be alive.

And the real story is often made invisible, even to you, by the ideas and prescriptions that are upheld by a culture of domination.


Because your truth is powerful enough to change us and our world.

“I am not the story you made of me.
You are not the story they made of you.
We are not the story they made of us.
Take the stories back.

~Lidia Yuknavitch


Let’s dig deeper

Explore the roots of your coping

This retreat is an invitation to delve beyond the action plan for your body and into the roots of your coping.

To hear stories that expand your understanding of your own narrative.

To work towards building trust where there has been mostly blaming and a well of deficiency.
