Body Trust is repair work. We are healing our relationship with food, our bodies, and ourselves. Just like when you’ve lost trust in any relationship in your life, it takes time to get it back.

When it comes to Body Trust, this trust is reciprocal—you are working on trusting your body and your body is working on trusting that it will get enough to eat consistently.

We cannot heal our relationship with our bodies with a plan to make them into what the dominant culture thinks they should be.

What is Body
Trust?

Body Trust is a radical revisioning of what it means to occupy and care for your body.

It is a pathway to acceptance of the body, an alternative dialogue to the conventional paradigm of food, body image, and weight concerns in our culture.

Body Trust is paradigm-shifting work that invites bravery and fierce body compassion.

CENTER FOR BODY TRUST GENDER POLICY: This retreat is intended for those whose lives and bodies have been most marginalized while living in a patriarchal, capitalist culture. For this reason, we invite all folks who identify as female, femme, trans, non-binary, or genderqueer to participate. If you have any questions or concerns about our gender policy, please feel free to email us.

Community is powerful.

Sharing space, your story, and your process with a community of people who support your liberation is a powerful catalyst for change.

Learn to reclaim the trust you once had for your body with those who share your journey.
