Food, Bodies & Liberation - Book Reading and Talk with Syd Yang

An Intersectional Approach to Healing Toxic Relationships with Food for All Bodies.

An adult survivor of bulimia, Syd Yang is a mixed-race, queer/non-binary writer, healer and intuitive counselor who has been creating one of these support spaces through her work at Blue Jaguar Healing Arts.

Syd’s most recent book - a memoir — Release: A Bulimia Story (creative non-fiction) shares the importance of bringing an intersectional, anti-oppression lens to eating disorder recovery.

She shares energetic healing practices that help to shift and reweave these relationships in our bodies — rooting out the ways internalized sexism, racism and homophobia have created harm.

The College of Social Work (through the Social Justice Innovation Initiative) is pleased to host this event.

This event is free and open to the general public.
