Live Free Collective Meditation
This week we are releasing a bonus episode that we usually share only with our Live Free Collective Members.
In the non-diet world, it’s hard to get personal support and community on a regular basis. Like when you’re eating dinner and everyone is talking about their diet. Or at a baby shower and your great aunt is giving the mom to be tips for how to lose the baby weight. It can feel like you are the only one in the world who wants to stop dieting.
It can be hard to take action after listening to our podcast because change doesn’t happen in isolation. Change happens with a community of support.
You need community because the community you are coming from is stuck in diet culture. You need a support system that is moving forward in the anti-diet world. You need to know that there are others working to stop weighting and show up exactly as they are.
When we do this work in community, we actually get results. That’s why we are launching the Live Free Collective, a membership where you can get the support and strength you need to leave diet culture behind and LIVE FREE.
Each month members have access to:
An exclusive meditation they can access right on their phone Desktop and phone wallpapers that will keep you encouraged A downloadable workbook with journal prompts and mantras Access to group discussions Monthly Coaching call with Q & A Don't "WAIT" another moment to Live Free!
