Ganesh Presents: Meditating on What Matters: Body Talk

  • Merge New York 128 Lafayette Street #Suite 202 New York, NY 10013 (map)

As we say goodbye to summer, can we also say goodbye to all the body shame that came with it? Join us in our next #meditatingonwhatmatters gathering BODY TALK.

How can we stop harmful internal dialogue we might have around our bodies, and transform it into a more loving and kind narrative? With a powerhouse, expert panel of body positive advocates, we talk through key methods on how to eradicate feelings of body shame, tools on listening deeply to your body, and ways to celebrate every part of it.

This event is for anyone of any size, shape or form who is looking to reconnect with their bodies in a kinder, deeper way through the practice of breath, movement and reflection.

This #bopo program will include:

  • Meditation, led by Roque Rodriguez

  • Panel discussion with Cathleen Meredith, Founder of Fat Girls Dance, Sarah Chiwaya of Curvily, Lisa Samuels, founder of Happie House and Roque Rodriguez, founder of Suryaside Wellness. Moderated by Melissa Rosenfield, founder of This Vibe Life.

  • Guided Movement by Cathleen Meredith

Note: Please come in comfortable clothing and be prepared to move, shake and maybe sweat a bit.
