Balm for the Troubled Soul; Beginning to recover from a history of toxicity

Class Description

Many people who come to toxic relationship recovery because of a recent relationship or experience often recognize that they’ve been in and out of toxic relationships.  Some of us have even heard the highly toxic and victim-blamey saying that they are the common denominator in all their failed relationships and may feel like it’s their fault that they keep ending up with toxic people. That simply isn’t true!!! Many of the seeds that cause us to take on abusive and/or victim tendencies start in our earliest childhood, even in our infancy.  Arriving at adulthood without knowing how to self-validate and keep healthy boundaries is an experience had by about half the adults of the United States. While our infancy is far in the past, *you* are in the present, and there is a lot that you can do to heal those wounds. The good news is that only you can heal yourself.  You don’t need to find the right relationship, religion, job, or diet to finally be made whole. Of course, the bad news is that only you can heal yourself.  How do you get started?  How can you begin to change in a world of constant attacks? In this peer-education event, we’ll go over the wounds of the inner child, the 4 F’s of the traumatized response, and discuss fighting our inner critic. Please join us!

Fawn Panel

Panel Description

The panelists will discuss fawning behavior / reaction. Yes, as in "fight, flight, freeze, fawn", but focusing specifically on the fawn part. We'll be discussing what that might look like from the outside, what it might feel like from the inside, and possible ways to deal with it both as the person experiencing it and as a person who caused it. Also, because we are perverts, we will probably discuss eliciting the fawn response for fun (with consent!) during play!

Inspiring Submission: Trauma Informed and Emotionally Intelligent D/s Dynamics

Class Description

A lot of domination revolves around the idea that submission is gained through force and aggression. The wants, needs, desires, and traumas of the submissive are often dismissed. This workshop combines research in social psychology, interpersonal communication, and organizational leadership to model dominance that uses humility and emotional intelligence to deepen D/s dynamics. This domination recognizes the power of vulnerability wherein learning, growth and success become a collaborative process that empowers all involved. The class will include mock D/s dynamic orientation conversations.

Put Your Practice Where Your Mouth Is: Consent and The Art of Effective Communication

Class Description

In the kink community, we talk a lot about consent and negotiation. However, consent violations occur frequently because we talk very little about effective communication. In this class, we discuss effective communication strategies to employ before, during, and after negotiation to facilitate consensual encounters. This class will answer questions such as:
• What is consent?  Consent violation? Consent Accident?
• What questions to ask during a negotiation? 
• How does effective communication mean planning for conflict?
• How does accountability factor into effective communication?
