She developed her body of work after escaping domestic violence and starting her life over at the age of 30. Unfulfilled in virtually every way, she set out to create the kind of life she’d always wanted - and within a short amount of time, she found her dreams coming true. The shift was so drastic that it led her to her life’s purpose: using the tools she’d developed to help other women move from pain to power, just as she had. Ali writes and speaks on a variety of topics relating to empowerment, including body image, self-love, navigating through fear, dismantling limiting belief systems, and utilizing our intuition. Her first book, Bad Fat Person: A Reflection on Plus-Size Bodies in a Cookie Cutter Culture, was published in February 2019. --- The vast majority of women will struggle with their body image at some point during their lives - and for many of us, those struggles last a lifetime. Existing within a society that places so much value on physical beauty can wreak havoc on our confidence, causing us to limit ourselves in our lives and careers. During this presentation, we will discuss the importance of challenging the cultural status quo and learning to truly love our bodies - just as they are, with no conditions attached. The workshop will include: -Discussion around body hatred as a learned behavior, not a natural one - and how to start the process of UN-learning -Exploration into your limiting beliefs about your body, and the ways in which those beliefs may be holding you back -A set of powerful tools to bring home with you that can help shift your mindset and start building body-positive habits Bring a writing utensil and your vulnerability!
