a transformative 4-week program for women
Loving your body is hard to do:
we live in a world that tells us to "just love your body," while simultaneously showing us that our bodies are too much, not enough, unruly, and not to be trusted.
if you, like me and so many other women out there
have spent a lifetime
counting calories and drops of sweat
tugging at your clothes in the mirror
pasting pictures of other women's bodies to your vision boards,
it's time to start your own Project Body Love.
Because our world needs its women committed to revolution and sovereignty and joy, not eating more salad.
The Project Body Love program is a place to begin your journey back to yourself
to feeling like you belong in your own skin.
And I want to be real with you, because I know Diet Culture has been feeding us promises of instant transformation for a loooong time:
Body love is a practice, not an end goal, but beginning your own Project Body Love will give you the tangible, research-based tools you need to start.
Will you look in the mirror and do a happy dance after doing this program? Maybe. But what I believe is more important is that you begin to be in relationship with your body. That you become attuned to its many languages, and become skilled at attending to its needs. That you uncloak yourself from the shroud of shame you've been hiding behind, buy yourself some clothes that fit...and have a fire ceremony to burn the ones that don't, alongside all your beliefs that your nowbody (yeah, the body you have NOW) is anything less than a vehicle for you to experience JOY.
The Project Body Love program is also a place to feel less alone. To receive guidance along your path, and the support of other women who get it, and are living evidence that your experience of living in your body is real + meaningful, and that you belong here - in all your unruly, messy glory.
Here's what you'll experience during the Project Body Love program...
A powerful four-part process
The four-part process that you will be guided through during Project Body Love is rooted in adult development psychology, neuroscience, and anthropological knowledge about what it takes to change our lives. Unlike so many other programs, Project Body Love explores not just behavioural change - the changes to things you DO - but on shifting your idea of who you are. This work isn't based in accountability measures, fancy wordplay and to-do lists: you will be given the tools to begin deep, meaningful and sustainable change to your life that you can't do wrong, not enough, or fail at.
Four interactive video sessions
You'll receive each week's module and practices via a 90-minute interactive video. You will be guided to begin to explore the week's topic, and to dive right into the transformational practices and reflections that will support you to shift your relationship with your body.
Ongoing online support
You'll get access to a private, supportive Facebook community to receive support, ask questions, and find inspiration. Additional links and resources will be posted here regularly to support you along your path.
Hands-on, practical guidance
We know that most adult humans learn best by DOING, and that the absolute last thing you need in your life is more screen time.
The Project Body Love program is full of hands-on, tangible practices for you to use, every day, in your real life. This is how sustainable change happens.
You will begin your own personal Project Body Love by taking a fearless and searching inventory of your relationship with your body: because you have to know where you are before you can know where you're going. You will dive into the history of your relationship with your body, and begin to reignite your sense of body connection with journal prompts, hands-on practices, and simple ritual.
You will be supported to explore what beliefs, ways of being and even ways of identifying you might be ready to release in order to move forward on your journey toward accepting, respecting and maybe even loving your body. Letting go and grieving the woman you once were - a smaller woman, or a woman who diets, for example - is an important part of the process. Powerful journal prompts and meaningful ritual will guide your process.
It's time to explore! You will be guided to create your own "tiny experiments" in accepting, respecting, and maybe even loving your body. You will learn about joyful movement, explore your relationship with rest, learn the art of "self-tending," dive into the juiciness of "authentic intimacy," re-engage with your intuition, explore intuitive eating...you decide: what is calling you? This is a rich, fun, curious and well-supported process of finding your way back to you.
It's time to host a reunion between you and your body. You will integrate all you've learned, start to explore what it means to be in relationship with your body and what your purpose for your body is. You'll also set your intentions for the path ahead, because being in a loving relationship with your body is a practice, not an end goal.

Hi, I'm Jessie.
I am a women's mentor, doula, wilderness quest guide and author of the book Project Body Love: my quest to love my body and the surprising truth I found instead.
I hold a degree in Neuroscience, a Masters of Health Promotion, and I'm a certified professional life coach from the Centre for Applied Neuroscience and the Centre for Narrative Coaching and Design.
After I wrote the book Project Body Love, I had so many people ask me how they, too, could embark on a journey to accept, respect, and maybe even love their bodies. This program, which uses the same research-based methodology I used in the book, is the result of those requests.
I am honoured to have the opportunity to support you on your own Project Body Love quest.
"Project Body Love is a fierce, honest, + necessary read for all women ready to transform their relationship with their bodies. Jessie’s honesty moved me + her vision of healing is inspiring.”
- Molly Mahar, Founder of Stratejoy
"While reading, I lost count of how many times I whispered, 'just like me...' The truth in this bookwill illuminate and validate. Not in that 'rah-rah-rah' style of affirmations simply reheated and served up again. No, this is poetic and raw and wise. This book belongs on your bedside table with your body positive authors, your poetry books, your treasured essays. This book gets read more than once.
- Amazon review
"Thank you for your incredible book. You are one hell of a courageous woman to write this book. I am full of admiration for your honesty and candor in how you have written about such deeply personal feelings. In doing so you have done a huge service to the masses and masses of women (me included) who are dissatisfied with and/or even hate their bodies."
- Amazon review
“Jessie’s words feel like a homecoming. Having wrestled with the same weight issues and body love challenges all my life, I felt like this book offered a safe place to land in a world that doesn’t always make our bodies feel welcome.”
- Heather Plett, Coach + Holding Space Facilitator
