Healing, health, whole and holy all come from the same root words: the Saxon "hal" - to make whole, to bring the parts together, to resolve differences. In the multimedia presentations, facilitated workshops, and the repetition of the affirming music, The Real Women project expects to:
• Explore belief systems about beauty
• Examine whether belief systems have a positive effect on well-being
• Explore the uses of time, money and energy to create well-being
• Challenge individuals and groups to come up with definitions of beauty and choices, which are inclusive of all
• Broader definitions of beauty are not only more inclusive, but enhance and affirm one's own sense of health, of body, of mind and spirit.
• Reach behavioral contracts and action plans, which excite commitment from women.

If you're interested in bringing the Real Women Project to your area, or sponsoring a facilitated workshop for your organization, please send an email to [email protected] for more information. These workshops incorporate the Real Women sculptures, video, music and personal stories to empower women and assist in our collective and individual redefining of beauty.
