Love After COVID:
Repairing Relationships from the effects of isolation & quarantine
JULY 17 from 10 am-1 pm PST
We’ve been living in a that none of us were prepared for. In particular, most of our relationships were not structured for, or ready to adapt to the impact of the pandemic. For many, the impact became enmeshment- spending every second together in close quarters with little external outlets or connections. For others, it meant more isolation from partners in different cities or countries. As we move into this next phase of transformation during the pandemic, how do we understand the patterns we’ve fallen into, the trauma to our relationships over the last year, and how to build a new way forward? What do you, both individually and collectively, want to shift in your relationship dynamics and what would thriving as autonomous beings, while maintaining deep connection, look like? And beyond this last year, what do you know about yourself and your needs in relationships. Autonomy, personal expression, safety— when do we compromise & when do we fight? Join us for an exploratory conversation inclusive of all gender/ sex and relationship structures, expressions and values.

WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
This class will be focused on perspectives of survivors, inclusive of the experience of BIPOC, LGBTQIPA+, and sex worker specific survivors. We will be digging into the impact of trauma on various areas of life, ways the trauma manifests long term (ie: physical/ social/ relational/ psychological effects) and creating empowerment and healing through ritual, self care, community, and clinical tools. You are more than your sexual trauma, you deserve access to pleasure on your terms.
We live in a world where sexual shame inhibits and controls sexual expression and prevents connection and pleasure. Porn and diverse arousal patterns are often targets for hate and oppression related to sexual expression. In this discussion based workshop we go through activities to encourage unpacking of personal internalized bias and shame and moving towards new opportunities for pleasure and connection in your body.
