Body Image/Body Confidence:
a workshop for women
complementing
The Century Project
April 7-9

When is your body going to be "good enough"? What does it take to feel good about your body, regardless of its size or shape?

Inspired by the Century Project, this workshop offers you simple yet powerful breathing, movement, and writing exercises to make peace with your body and receive the many gifts it's ready to give you.

This event is for women who want to boost their body confidence as well as for counselors, health care providers, yoga teachers, and bodywork therapists.

Eat only lightly before the workshop and come dressed to move!

The Century Project, the work of photographer Frank Cordelle, is an exhibit of nude portraits of women and girls from the moment of birth to nearly a hundred years of age.

The series of photographs presents women of many shapes, sizes, and life experiences. Moving personal statements, written by the women themselves, accompany the images.

The exhibit takes place at Western Carolina University in the University Center's Multipurpose Room from Monday, April 7 through Wednesday April 9. The exhibit is open to the public from 10 am to 8 pm each day; admission is free of charge.

The photographic portraits are also presented in Frank Cordelle's book, Bodies and Souls: The Century Project (Heureka Productions, 2006).
