No body talk week
Join us this for a week this Spring as we encourage our friends, schools, synagogues, and communities to take a break from body talk! Eden Village, in partnership with synagogues, schools, and networks all around the country will be hosting workshops for parents, educators, and kids on how to create kind, healthy spaces that de-center body talk and re-center belonging, inclusion, and loving kindness.
Look out for events in your area or sign up to partner with us.

What is the ``no body talk`` guideline?
The guideline is just one small building block of our “culture of kindness.”
While at camp, we take a break from commenting on our own or others’ appearance or clothes, be it negative, neutral or positive – with caveats for health and safety issues and healthy body-awareness building (e.g. instruction in sports, music and arts; nutrition education), and we do have important conversations about body image, social pressures, gender socialization, puberty, self-esteem, etc.
