Body Positive at The Beach


The Body Positive teaches people how to overcome conflicts with their bodies, so they can lead happier, more productive lives. We are dedicated to inspiring youth and adults to value their health, unique beauty, and identity so they can use their vital resources of time, energy, and intellect to make positive changes in their own lives and in the world.

The Be Body Positive Model is comprised of five core Competencies, the fundamental skills we can practice daily to live peacefully and healthfully in our bodies. When we become proficient—competent—at using these skills, we can care for our whole selves from a place of self-love and appreciation, which allows us to act on our purpose and life goals.

Body Positive at The Beach is a safe place for students to come together in a supportive environment and consists of 8 sessions:

  • Session 1: Introduction to Your Body Positive Group
  • Session 2: Body Messages and Stories
  • Session 3: Reclaim Health
  • Session 4: Cultivate Self-Love
  • Session 5: Declare Your Own Authentic Beauty
  • Session 6: Beauty Stories
  • Session 7: Practice Intuitive Self-Care
  • Session 8: Pleasure, Shame, and Intuitive Living

"The Body Positive Group has helped me tremendously to work through the continuous process of trying to be at peace with my body and with food."

“At the time I had very few spaces in my life where I could go and actually talk about these deep rooted issues, but it made me feel like I wasn’t alone.”

“At the time I had very few spaces in my life where I could go and actually talk about these deep rooted issues, but it made me feel like I wasn’t alone.”

“It has the power to change lives and I would love for that opportunity to be available to everyone on campus who wants to try it.”

“For the first time in my life, I look into the mirror without judgment. Instead of pointing out my flaws, I compliment myself.”

“My experience in The Body Positive has been nothing short of life changing.”

“I have seen myself and many members of our group positively develop since the time of our first meeting. We all seem to be growing and are in better places in life than when we first started the program.”

“I have taken so much from this program. I believe this program works well and I truly hope that many people get to have the same great experience that I have.”

Comprised of various representatives from the campus community, The Health & Wellness Core Action Group provides support and referrals to our mind and body wellness programs.

If you are staff or faculty member on campus and interested in joining the Core Action Group, please contact us at SHS-BodyPositive@csulb.edu.

The journey continues...
