In case you haven't heard, Abundia is a weekend retreat for fat women that takes place annually in the Chicago suburbs. The retreat features a number of size-positive workshops and events - including a keynote from Marilyn Wann this year.
While I obviously haven't gone to Abundia, I know people who have and I've always seen a positive change in people who have gone. I think that removing all of the stereotypes and limitations around size, and just letting people be as they are, really goes a long way towards liberation.
This year's event is from November 7-9 in Zion, Illinois (far north suburb.) Registration for Abundia closes next Wednesday, and you can sign up today via PayPal. If you're in the area, I highly suggest you check it out.
