Program Description

A healthy body includes a healthy mind. Learn to heal from the inside out and grow into your whole, full self in Katie H. Willcox’s one-of-a-kind, inclusive workshop. In this powerful weekend program, you will identify the impact and detriments of the media’s harmful beauty ideals and evaluate how its messaging has effected you.

Take home the tools you need to undo years of harmful, unhealthy exposure while making progress toward realizing—and living—a healthy and authentic life.

Through lectures, a multimedia presentation, group discussions, and journaling, you will be guided from the superficial to the spiritual, and supported in gathering the tools you need to promote self-improvement through self-love.

You will explore:

  • A guided self-love discovery course to create a healthy mind, body, and soul from the inside out
  • How to identify the beauty ideal, discuss the individual and societal costs of pursuing the ideal, and evaluate modern examples of media manipulation
  • How to think critically about creating habits for an authentically healthy life through self-love
  • How to become aware of, and challenge, negative programming—an essential step toward healing and achieving your health and wellness goals.

  • Why Attend
    • Learn to protect yourself from media manipulation as well as ways to begin living authentically with a new sense of what “being healthy” means.

    • Katie H. Willcox draws on psychology associated with our conscious and subconscious desires to discuss how media advertising uses this to destroy our sense of self in order to sell products.

    • Gain inspiration from Katie's story and insight about body image and health, fueled by 13 years of experience in the modeling industry: “As a ‘model' I am not a person, I am a product. One day I woke up and realized my soul was not okay with that.”
