OUR STORY

The True Body Project was created by Stacy Sims in 2005 as an intensive summer program for teen girls. That 6-week, daily curriculum married art, writing, movement, mindfulness, activism, media literacy, gender studies and holistic wellness and encouraged girls to deepen their own exploration of what it means to be a human in a body and to share their experiences truthfully to advocate for the wellness of self and others.  The girls created a literary journal that summer and a short film.


Today, the True Body Project (TBP) features Leadership Trainings and workshops so that individuals can bring this award-winning trauma-informed, social-emotional, mind-body work to schools and organizations in their area. While TBP still serves girls and women, the curriculum (available for purchase through our sister-site, City Silence) has been up-dated to be gender neutral and has been implemented with boys and girls, men and women from K-80+.


TBP work is also designed to work across cultures and has been experienced by individuals and groups from around the world.
