Abundia Retreat 2016: Call for Speakers!

Greetings from the Abundia Board!

As we plan our 2016 retreat, to be held on November 11, 12, and 13, 2016, we need your help. We seek presenters and speakers who can equip our attendees with the tools to thrive in a culture that criticizes fat women. We are looking for inspiration to live fully and boldly. We also like to have fun!

We are open to workshops of any type-provided they focus on positive fat acceptance, Health At Every Size, or self-esteem for fat women. Following is a list of possible future presentations we seek:

• Intuitive eating
• Movement and exercise for fat women (yoga, Tai Chi, NIA, etc) • Body-positive meditation
• Art and crafting
• Writing workshop
• Fashion, hair, and makeup
• Fat-positive poetry, songs, prose
• Massage therapist


Abundia is a non-profit organization. We offer negotiable compensation for speakers; but we cannot cover traveling expenses separately.
