Description: Frustrated by your relationships? Frustrated by your lack of relationships? Want to show up more confidently in your intimate connections? Want a space to explore all of this with other queer women?
Come meet us, learn about the upcoming 4 week group series, and meet other wonderful women!
MORE ABOUT THE GROUP SERIES STARTING IN MARCH:
Who: for queer women who partner with people of all genders and who are interested in exploring alternative relationships. Whoever you like, however you like them, however many of them you have that you like, you are welcome to join us for this series! (gay, bi, trans, genderqueer, monogamous, open, single or in a relationship, etc...)
What/How: Dynamic and participatory group sessions to deepen your capacity and skills in developing and maintaining functional and feel-good intimate relationships. Through coaching, dialogue, activities, one-on-one and group support, you will gain access to both personal transformation and practical tools for blasting forth the kind of relationships you’ve always wanted.
Topics covered include:
getting real in relationships
being open for connection
self love and care
queer identity and sexuality
trust, honesty and intimacy
stepping outside of the traditional relationship paradigm
healing old hurts and letting go!
fun and play in your relationships
Why: Because relationships thrive with the support of community. We believe that having a space to openly and safely discuss and explore your love life will create more freedom, understanding, and play for you!
