Be Your Own Beloved Online Classes
Are you ready to see photos of yourself and smile at the person looking back at you?
Are you ready to change the story that you are photogenic or that you aren’t beautiful and see photos of yourself that feel like they tell the story of YOU.
Are you ready to reclaim your personal power, reclaim your voice back from your inner critic?
Are you ready for a tool that can help you step into a kinder relationship with yourself?
Are you ready to Be Your Own Beloved?
The Be Your Own Beloved E-Courses are programs to help you support you on your path to seeing yourself with compassion. To help you learn and put into practice new ways of learning to treat yourself with the same kindness and reverence that you would a beloved one.
In these programs we use the tool of self-portrait photography aka selfies as a doorway to making a change in the way we see ourselves, our bodies and our lives. We are reclaiming and redefining how we see ourselves, outside of the lens of self-critique we may have become accustomed to. We are creating a new lens to see ourselves through, one that sees us with kinder eyes.
There are a few different online programs to suit your readiness to explore self-compassion through selfies. All are beginner friendly and designed for folks who aren’t presently comfortable in front of a camera but feel drawn to shift the way you see yourself in images and in the mirror.

SELF-PACED (always open for registration):

This online class is self-paced so there is no pressure to share your photos as you’re beginning to get comfortable with seeing yourself in photos.

We often hide our potential to see ourselves with compassion in the way we curate our photos. We hide parts of ourselves from photos (or apologize for them) when if only we were to let ourselves out of hiding, body compassion just might await us. We’re also going to ditching the goal of the ‘perfect body love selfie’ and reclaiming our uncurated everyday body love. Let’s get uncurated!

October 2nd-13th, 2017
We don’t want to ‘hate’ our bodies anymore so we swing the pendulum the other way and aim for body love. But trying to always LOVE ourselves is a lot of pressure and can be as consuming as self-hate, having us feeling like we’re ‘failing’ if we have a tough body love day. But there is another option in body neutrality. In this class we explore tools for finding body neutrality through the camera lens.
