Boundary


Workshop testimonial: "You know how yoga is a body bend? This workshop was a mind bend!" 

Okay, let's admit it, at one time or another we've all said, yes when we wanted to say no, no when we wanted to say yes, and maybe when we really didn't mean it.


At one time or another, we've pushed someone's boundaries, invaded their personal space, went in for the hug without waiting, accepted a lukewarm yes, when we knew they didn't mean it. Also, you might have been taught that if a man really wanted someone, he would pursue them past their objections, and if a woman didn't feign disinterest, she was likely a slut.

In light of #MeToo, the question is WHY is this SO common in the United States? Why are we so bad at consent and this kind of communication? And what can we do differently?

This interactive workshop, led by sociologist and sexologist Dr. Jenn, leads with a personal consent violation she experienced, and then follows with lecture, reflections, interactive activities, and discussion. You will definitely leave this workshop with a new view on consent and communication, in our society and for yourself. Arm yourself with tools to feel better about yourself and more respectful, compassionate, and in-tune with others.

*Out of respect for our facilitator and the host, please arrive no earlier than 1:40 pm and no later than 1:55pm. We plan to start promptly.
