traumababe4traumababe: a relationship workshop

no matter how crazy, traumatized, or neuroweird we are, we deserve love, care, and support

AND

sometimes our madness, trauma, and neurodivergence can make being in relationships kind of messy and hard, especially in conflict. in conflict, things can speed up and go deep real fast. we and our friends, roommates, lovers, partners, and family members can have a rough time sorting out whose shit is whose, which patterns & dynamics might be able to shift, and how to harm-reduce the sticky stuff that isn't going anywhere anytime soon. this is a two-part workshop for you, created with love from someone who's lived a lot of hard, fucked up relational shit, and who's spent the last decade practicing and studying mad pride & body-based frameworks for healing and being in relationship. 

PART ONE: DEEP DIVING
SATURDAY 17 MARCH NEW MOON, 2:00 - 5:00 pm

when we go in, we go deep. in this half of the workshop, participants will map their deep dives into conflict, skillshare to build personalized dive kits to take with next time, learn somatic grounding & containment practices suited to their own bodies, and deshame these deep, swift dives by recognizing & honouring how deep diving keeps us alive & offers invaluable wisdom. in rough seas with big waves, deep diving is actually the safest way to swim.

PART TWO: SURFACING
TUESDAY 20 MARCH WAXING CRESCENT, 6:00 - 9:00 pm

the thing about going deep is, it's hard to see & hear clearly down there. sometimes this means that when we emerge from conflict, we've made some messes: said something shitty, crossed someone's boundaries, dropped the ball, or missed an opportunity. in this half of the workshop, we will focus on tools for accepting, grieving, and repairing what has gone wrong. participants will skillshare around re-orienting after surfacing, learn self-accountability tools for moving with & through shame towards self-forgiveness, and explore ways to come back into & repair relationships that may have been damaged while we were under.
