Boundaries and Self

A deep dive into the theory and practice of boundary-setting, and how this crucial life skill intersects with identity, worth & femme trauma

In this workshop you will: 

 

Share an intimate and in-person space with other delightful women and femmes.

Participate in experiential practice designed to flex the physical, mental and emotional muscles required for setting boundaries.

Examine the cultural and family contexts that condition our experience when it comes to personal needs, intuition, the body, desire, pleasure, and communication with ourselves and others. 

Learn about the human nervous system and trauma: how fight, flight and freeze operate, and how these states cause chronic issues and intersect with oppression.

 

Understand the dynamics of fight, flight and freeze's lesser-known relative: Tend and Befriend.

Engage in practices designed to strengthen the relationship to your own impulse and intuition, and why this is important.

 

Journal, share, lie on the floor, snack, and generally have a great time (for a class on something so challenging!), with room for all the feelings.
