-Trixies Salon XOXO
As women, so many of us love freely, but put conditions on our worthiness and ability to be loved. We think thoughts like "I will be loveable when I lose weight" or "I will be worthy when someone finally chooses me." These are beliefs and thought patterns that we have learned throughout our lives, but they are not true. We will not be worthy or loveable WHEN… We are worthy and loveable NOW.
This weekend will focus on loving and appreciating yourself and your body now, feeding and nourishing your body (without guilt), and connecting with yourself through movement and meditation.
Celeste Watson, Life & Relationship Coach, will lead a self-love workshop in which you will identify the false beliefs you have about yourself and your body, and how those beliefs manifest in life and your relationship with yourself and others. Through these exercises, you will form new beliefs and habits around self-love that inspire you treat your body, mind, and spirit with the love and respect they deserve. By the end of this retreat, you will have the tools and confidence to continue your journey of self-love and body acceptance.
Several local female business owners have been invited to assist and support us on our journey of self-love and body acceptance (no additional charge for these services):
