Connie Sobczak is the author of Embody: Learning to Love Your Unique Body (and quiet that critical voice!). She is an educator, speaker, filmmaker, and co-founder of The Body Positive, a non-profit organization where, for the past 20 years, she has skillfully and lovingly reconnected people to the wisdom they inherently possess to make choices that lead to more balanced, joyful self-care and a relationship with themselves that is guided by love, forgiveness, and humor. Connie’s experience with an eating disorder in her teen years and the death of her sister Stephanie inspired her life’s work to create a world where all people are free to love their bodies.
In Connie’s talk, she will bring to life two core Competencies from the Be Body Positive Model: Cultivate Self-Love and Declare Your Own Authentic Beauty. Through storytelling, readings from Embody, and engaging activities, Connie will introduce participants to a way of living that allows for more peace with one’s body and life.
