If you are a woman struggling with the image that you have of your body, this women-only event may be for you. Sara Hardy’s fourth annual Body Image Day at a Nude Lake will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 9:30 to 4:30 at Sunward Naturist Park, 90 minutes west of Ottawa. 

Your host will be Sara Hardy, a naturist since 2009. For decades, Sara hated her body, was chronically depressed, and lived on a rollercoaster of diets. Learning to love her body helped change all that. 

“I often pinch myself in disbelief that I’m a naturist, because I hated and loathed my body for most of my life and now I can comfortably walk around nude. I also suffered from clinical depression, and my first visit to a naturist resort changed the way I felt about myself. Gradually my depression lessened, I stopped dieting, and I threw out the scale. Today I love my body. Four years ago, I wondered how I could offer a similar experience to other women who were not satisfied with their body - just like I used to be. And so, the Body Image Day at a Nude Lake was born.” ~ Sara Hardy

During the morning session, at which all participants will be dressed, the women naturists will share the fears and insecurities they had about their bodies when they first visited the park. This will be followed by a general discussion. After a pot-luck lunch, there is an optional nude swim in the park’s pristine lake.
