Restore, Recalibrate, Reconnect A HAES ®ProfessionalRetreat with Dianne Bondy and Fiona Sutherland at Good Commons Plymouth Vermont August 25-29th
Join friends and colleagues in a spectacular location for four days to reconnect with the community and re-energise your passion for doing meaningful, body-inclusive work in the world.
Breathe In – the warmth and energy of a like-minded community who get it
Breathe Out – the challenges of living & working in diet culture.
Feel held by experienced retreat facilitators who love to both dig deep into the tough stuff, AND have fun.
Who is this suitable for?
Health professionals with a sound understanding of, and commitment to, Health At Every Size ® principles Folks who wish to connect with, and be in community with others who share a commitment to equitable, body-inclusive care. People who want to explore how yoga intersects with HAES® and social justice – taking your practice from the mat into your communities.
What can you expect?
This will feel less like formal “training” or “workshop” style and more “sit on comfy couches, and have meaningful discussions with others who want to do the same.” There will be a mix of organised sessions (including yoga) & less formal time where you can really feel into what YOU need (and actually respond to it!). Once places are filled, we’ll be communicating with you to fill in a few gaps in the program so we can find out about what YOU need and want
