Annual Body Image Day
at Sunward Naturist Park
(Date to be Determined)
“After 35 years of body loathing, depression & dieting,
learning to love my body has changed everything.” ~ Sara Hardy
If you are a woman struggling with body image issues, this women-only event may be for you. The Seventh Annual Body Image Day at a Nude Lake will take place on a date to be determined from 9:00 to 5:00 at Sunward Naturist Park, 90 minutes northwest of Ottawa.
Your host is Sara Hardy, a naturist since 2009. For decades, Sara hated her body. She was chronically depressed and lived on a rollercoaster of diets. Learning to love her body helped to change all that.
“I will never forget my first visit to the naturist park. I was terrified of going (it was on my husband’s bucket list) but when I got to the lake and saw bodies for what they are, I was shocked to realize that there was nothing wrong with me. I was okay as I was. That experience changed me forever. My depression lessened, I stopped dieting, I threw out the scale, and I started living a much fuller life. Seven years ago, I asked myself how I could offer a similar experience to other women who were not happy with their body -- just like I used to be. And so, the Body Image Day at a Nude Lake was born.” ~ Sara Hardy
During the morning session, at which all participants will be dressed, women naturists will share the fears and insecurities that 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.
This is what past participants have to say about the Body Image Day:
"Best day ever!"
“What an awesome event!”
" Life changing!”
“I’m going to carry this forever as being one of the best experiences I have ever had.”
“The most liberating, freeing thing every woman should experience at least once in their lifetime.”
“This was my second (and glorious!) experience here!”
The cost is $45, which covers the park’s entrance fee and incidentals. An option to camp overnight is included in the cost.
