Join us for an evening of enlightenment as we explore and unpack the globalization of the beauty myth. An epidemic of insecurity is undoubtedly present and growing at a terrifying rate. The multi-billion dollar beauty industry saturates our lives with images of unattainable beauty and impossible standards, leaving many of us hustling to find truth in our enough-ness. Our first annual REEL LOVE fundraising event will include a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary, The Illusionists, which pulls back the veil on this very issue and turns on the mirror on the media. The film will be followed by an intimate conversation and question opportunity between the film’s director, Elena Rossini, and our Embody Love Movement founder, Melody Moore, Ph.D.  We will wrap up the evening with an opportunity to network, socialize, and learn more about our organization.
