Tara Teng

Tara Teng (she/her) is an Embodiment Coach who works in the intersections of spirituality and sexuality.

Her debut book, “Your Body is a Revolution: Healing Our Relationships with Our Bodies, Each Other and the Earth” was published June 2023 from Broadleaf Books and Dundurn Press and is available in print, e-book and audiobook everywhere books are sold!

She also has spent ten years working to advance the socio-economic status of women, diminish sexual violence and end human trafficking alongside collaborative work with community stakeholders, lawmakers, and some amazing organizations. Her advocacy work has helped to pass new laws in Canada that protect victims of human trafficking and she has established Canada’s first Municipal Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking.

Beyond her work, Tara is a TEDx Speaker, a former Miss Canada and was named Canada’s “Woman of the Year” in 2011. She is one of the Globe and Mail’s “Top 25 Most Transformational Canadians”, received an International Heroes award from the Joy Smith Foundation, as well as the Diamond Jubilee medal from Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of her vast human rights work.
