Embody Justice: Addressing Weight Stigma as Herbal Practitioners
This workshop will dive into the ways that the culture of weight stigma and anti-fat bias impacts herbal practitioners and clients. We are bombarded with overt and covert messages about body size that leads to high rates of eating disorders and body hatred among people of all sizes. For people in bigger bodies, size-based discrimination and stereotyping leads to oppression and medical neglect. This workshop explores what it means to be an herbalist in this context and specific weight-inclusive strategies for conditions herbalists see.
