If you’re in USA and willing/able to travel in November, you might want to attend the 2008 Abundia Retreat.


Abundia is a community of plus size women that was started in 1990 “to meet to discuss ways to live fully, joyfully and abundantly in a culture that does not appreciate large women.”


Retreats have been organized ever since 1994, and this year’s retreat is to be held at the Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center in Zion, Illinois through November 7, 8 and 9, 2008. Thousands of BBW women have said attending the retreat has filled them with confidence, and given them a new perspective of life.


This year the retreat will be featuring well-known size-activist Marilyn Wann; who most recently has been in the limelight for her 1000 Fat Cranes Project to protest the new anti-obesity legislation introduced by the Japanese. She will be emceeing the event and is also the keynote speaker for the event.


For further details on the retreat, check out their brochure.

I wish I could go but sadly I can’t. Maybe next year! But I thought some of you might be interested and may even be able to attend. Let me know if you’re going, and of course, if you do attend, let us know what it was like.
