Happy Holidays!

There are many things people consider when buying holiday gifts for the special people in their lives. We wanted to highlight some talented people’s work and offer some ideas, in the spirit of supporting marginalized communities and working toward a more just and equitable world.

Some Favorites…

We fell in love with Jennifer Price Davis’s angel series, and we commissioned a Body Trust is My Birthright angel that we have available in our shop as high-quality, full-size (10″ x10″) prints and five-packs of (3″ x 3″) stickers.

Desiree Adaway is a fierce writer and leader in the fight for racial equity and social justice. Her newly updated Dear Sister (not just cister) card deck has liberatory messages, reflections, and writing prompts that will deepen your inner liberation work and justice-doing. The original Dear Sister deck is also still available!
Nalgona Positivity Pride focuses on intersectional body positivity, eating disorder awareness, and cultural affirmation. Their Etsy shop has some of our favorite tees, posters, and pins. NPP’s founder, Gloria Lucas, has a Patreon Page where you can support her work and emotional labor through a monthly donation.
We love Substantia Jones and The Adipositivity Project Calendar she puts out every year. Put images of fat bodies where you see them regularly to increase your own body acceptance.
Books we reach for again and again…
CLOTHING

Bombsheller leggings come in sizes up to 6X.

Fresh Out The Cocoon and Decolonizing Fitness both make awesome body positive hoodies and tees.

Shop Fat Mermaid has super sassy fat-positive tees, sweatshirts, and pins and more.

Eryn Amel makes sex-positive, body positive tees that we love!

Fat Fancy is a radical fat fashion boutique located in Northeast Portland, Oregon offering new and used items in store and online.

Alice Alexander sews to order beautiful clothes up to size 28. You can also make requests for extended sizing.

ART & MUSIC

Thistle Farms makes handcrafted body care and home products and supports survivors of sex-trafficking, prostitution, and addiction by providing housing, meaningful work, and lifelong support services.
Shoog McDaniel’s art is “inspired by Florida flora and fauna and the beautiful fatties they photograph.”
The Body Love Box is a brand new body-positive, fat-positive and intersectional monthly subscription goodie box that features artwork by fat and marginalized artists, body liberation books and zines, self-care items, and more!
Ground Up makes delicious nut butters and provides job training to women overcoming adversity in the Portland area.
Viva Las Calaveras makes beautiful “Heart to Hand-made” jewelry.
SUPPORT THE IMPORTANT WORK OF OTHERS
The most revolutionary work is often done for free. Consider donating to these organizations who need our support.

We have a variety of products for sale in our store to support your Body Trust practice. Here are some of our favorites:

 

Reclaim Body Trust card decks and pendants. (Or grab a bundle with both!)

Weight-inclusive zone poster or door hanger.

We’ll be donating 20% of our holiday sales from the Be Nourished store to Nalgona Positivity Pride.

 

We have Reclaiming Body Trust Retreats in early 2019 (Check out dates here).

Help someone outwho’s hoping to attend. Get them a gift certificate to:
Breitenbush Hot Springs
(West Coast)
Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health
(East Coast)

 

100 for 100!

On January 7th, we begin a new session of our beloved six-week e-course “No More Weighting”. We have a New Year’s Tradition of offering a discounted rate of $100 (regularly $125) to the first 100 people who register for the course.

 

We have a feeling this will go quickly so be sure to jump in now! Give yourself or a loved one the gift of exploring a new way of being.

Wishing you peace this holiday season,

Center for Body Trust Equity Pricing Structure

The Center for Body Trust embodies values, policies and practices to create access to the resources we offer. Black, Indigenous and People of Color, trans and non-binary folks, queer people, super and inifinifat folks, and people with disabilities are disproportionately impacted by barriers to healthcare and wellness services due to systemic and institutionalized systems. We wish to address this impact by offering a three-tiered pricing structure: equity, standard and standard plus.

Be Nourished Becomes Center for Body Trust

It was 17 years ago that co-founders Dana Sturtevant and Hilary Kinavey met, not really knowing each other or much about the work they wanted to do beyond a deep craving for new language and a far more real and healing conversation about bodies, eating disorders, fatness and food.
