The Wisdom of Your Body: Finding Healing, Wholeness, and Connection Through Embodied Living

May 6 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

SATURDAY, MAY 6, 2023, 9:30 A.M.–3 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall and online via Zoom; registration required for either option

with Hillary L. McBride, Ph.D.

Many of us have, unknowingly, been sold the story that our minds are superior to our bodies, and that our bodies are barriers to “pure” or “true” spirituality. Together, we will examine how these ideas continue to keep us from wholeness. We’ll explore practices that help us repair the fragmentations we care inside of us, so that we can truly remember our bodily selves.

Hillary L. McBride is a therapist, researcher, speaker and writer. She holds a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of British Columbia, with a focus on women’s experiences in and of the body, particularly at significant transitions points. She is the author of Mothers, Daughters, and Body Image: Learning to Love Ourselves as We Are (2017), Embodiment and Eating Disorders (2018), and, most recently, The Wisdom of Your Body (2021).
