Session 7: My Body, My Own: Celebrating our Unique Bodies (Part 2)

This week at the Regent Park Focus Divas Media Group Program, the goals of this session are the following; (1) to make the Divas feel positive about their bodies; (2) to celebrate the difference/unique qualities of their bodies/things society normally doesn’t celebrate; (3) to touch on self care/loving and caring for the body just as it is.

A recap of the previous week was done as the Divas passed the circle rock and described what they had learned through the program and the things that stood out for them so far in the ‘Celebrating our Unique Bodies’ session. This exercise was a refreshing way to begin this session as it made the Divas feel relaxed and set for the day’s activities.

In today’s session the Divas watched and reflected on two spoken word performances; “Body Love” – Mary Lambert and “For the Body” – Ruby Francisco. After this exercise, the Divas were allowed to use their personal reflection of their bodies in writing. The writing prompt says: A love letter to my body “Dear body …”

When the Divas finished with their composition, those who felt comfortable to share did so and it was very exciting.
