Announcing the Female Sexuality Workshop in the Community

This just showed up in my in-box. It’s a little last minute, but if you’re in the San Francisco area and want to take an amazing workshop on female sexuality, this is a wonderful opportunity.

Past participants say…

“If you are at all curious about sexuality, identity, power, privilege, pleasure, health, communication, and community… go toFemSexComm!  If you want to challenge your ideas, go to FemSexComm.  If you want to get more comfortable talking about sex, sexuality, and pleasure, go to FemSexComm.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.  I wish every person could have the opportunity to take this course.  It’s changed the way I think and the way I show up in the world.”

 

“One thing that was affected was my relationship with my disability. My invisible disability was always a part of my life that was really sheltered from my close friends and often my family. It wasn’t something I ever wanted to discuss or talk about. Early on in FemSexComm I decided that I wanted my time there to be as truthful and open as possible, so I made the decision to reveal information that I consider very confidential to a group of, at that point, strangers. This was a huge step for me and came out of the desire to have an authentic and honest experience with the people in the workshop. In the workshop, I had an accepting community that wasn’t constantly fixating on my invisible disability. They both respected it and allowed me the space to process and also made me feel really loved. It really moved me forward in my process of owning and being fully present with my disability.”

 

“I sometimes have the tendency to disintegrate different aspects of my life, like sex and love, work and play, romantic relationships and friendship, etc. I don’t think this is always a negative thing to do, but it sometimes makes me feel as if I am not allowing others to truly see me and I am not able to truly see others. It hinders the depth of some of my relationships. FemSexComm challenged me to talk openly about issues that I often shy away from. Because of this, I learned to become more assertive about showing my true self in many different types of spaces (not just with friends). I have gained very valuable communication skills and a much greater knowledge or myself, my desires and my ability to express them. These changes have allowed me to become closer to people who I didn’t know well before, and have emboldened me to be brave and honest in my current romantic relationship. I feel much closer to my partner and others in my life because of this workshop.”

 

“I carry what I have learned from this workshop with me always. It has allowed me to become a better ally, an improved communicator and a more compassionate human being.”
