This group is for womxn, femme-identified and nonbinary adults in the Denver area who would like to discuss and explore Body Positivity, Body Acceptance, Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size and Joyful Movement, and maybe we'll just smash the patriarchy along the way. Whether you’re a seasoned BoPo Warrior, or just starting to question Diet Culture, we’d love to have you! I imagine this group will host a wide array of events, from readings and discussion, to dinners and dance classes.
• Come with an Open Mind
• Be Kind to Others (and yourself!!)
• Be Respectful
>> No racist, homophobic, ableist, fatphobic, or any other hateful behavior is welcome in this space.
>> We respect people’s varied levels of what they feel comfortable sharing or doing in this group.
• Know Our Limits
>>We recognize that none of us are here in a professional capacity (meaning that anyone here who might be a doctor or therapist in profession, is not working in that capacity in this group and is simply a member of this community just like anyone else in the group) and therefore any need for professional help will need to be explored outside of this group.
Lets go stand up paddle boarding and then get down on some good food!
Bring your own paddle board (or kayak/canoe/whatever) or rent one from Colorado Water Sports for ~$20/hour. Reservations highly recommended - I'd suggest the 11:00-1:00 block for this event. Rent from the Roxborough Cove location: https://www.coloradowatersports.com/product-category/roxborough-cove/
After paddle boarding we'll picnic and relax. I'll have a cooler in my trunk if anyone needs to keep any food or drinks cold while we're on the water.
Note that it costs about $10 per car to get into the park unless you have an annual state park pass, so carpooling is encouraged. I'm driving from Capitol Hill and happy to give anyone a ride!
