Embrace Screening

body positive Embrace movie screening

We need to talk. About body image.

It’s a struggle that women of all sizes face and I’m on a mission to help women learn to love themselves more, to stop the negative shame cycle and ditch the comparison mindset.

The event will feature:

  • Movie screening of “Embrace”
  • A panel discussion on body image 
  • A safe environment to openly discuss body image issues
  • An opportunity to pledge to be more kind to oneself and others
  • Experiential activities to help demonstrate self-love


Panel Moderator – Lauren Parsons, Wellbeing Specialist, Lauren Parsons Wellbeing Specialists

My goal is for you to leave with a more positive mindset and feeling of pride in who you are, no matter what you look like.

** There is limited seating and this event WILL sell out, so get your ticket fast!! Bring a friend and both of you SAVE! **

Proceeds from the event going to Hopewell Eating Disorder Support Centre.
