6th Annual Body Image Day
at Sunward Naturist Park
Saturday, July 27, 2019
If you are a woman struggling with body image issues, this women-only event may be for you. Sara Hardy’s sixth annual Body Image Day at a Nude Lake will take place on Saturday, July 27, 2019 from 9:00 to 4:00 at Sunward Naturist Park, 90 minutes northwest of Ottawa.
Your host is Sara Hardy, a naturist since 2009. For decades, Sara hated her body, was chronically depressed, and lived on a rollercoaster of diets. Learning to love her body helped change all that.
“I often pinch myself in disbelief that I’m a naturist, because I hated and loathed my body for most of my life and now I can comfortably walk around nude. I also suffered from clinical depression, and my first visit to a naturist resort changed the way I felt about myself. Gradually my depression lessened, I stopped dieting, and I threw out the scale. Today I love my body. Six years ago, I wondered how I could offer a similar experience to other women who were not satisfied with their body -- just like I used to be. And so, the Body Image Day at a Nude Lake was born.” ~ Sara Hardy
This year’s guest speaker is Talli Osborne (talliosborne.com). Talli is an inspirational speaker, endorsed by Richard Branson. She’s a body-positive expert, an empowerment coach, a mentor for people with physical challenges, a punk-rock optimist and a naturist.
During the morning session, at which all participants will be dressed, the women naturists will share the fears and insecurities they had about their bodies when they first visited the park. This will be followed by a general discussion. After a pot-luck lunch, there is an optional nude swim in the park’s pristine lake and an optional group photo.
Past participants have this to say about the Body Image Day:
"Best day ever!"
“What an awesome event!”
“A lifetime of built-up negative energy has been released.”
“The most freeing, soul-nourishing experience!”
“I was really inspired by all the talks.”
The cost is $75, which covers the park’s entrance fee, incidentals and the guest speaker’s fee. An option to camp overnight is included in the cost.
