Event Description:

What does it mean to fit in? How do we do so when who we are conflicts with the community in which we live? When—why—do we decide that trying to fit in (or not) helps us grow spiritually? In this series of three conversations, you are invited to explore how friction points that exist in personal and community (r)evolution can help us grow spiritually has human beings. (Learn more about the Nov. 3 and Nov. 5 conversations.) 

During the third and final conversation on November 6, Ellise Antoinette Smith will put the body shamers to shame! As the creator of Fatness Fiction and the award-winning podcast Plus Size Magic Radio, she will explore the journey to embrace, rock, and celebrate one’s vivacious curves in a society that worships thinness. Smith will share her spoken pieces and invites community to bring their own pieces around body imagine. The event will include a community discussion, Q&A, and art activity making affirmation mirrors.
