Do you frequently experience guilt, shame, and feelings of inferiority around your kinks, sexuality/sexual expression, gender identity, relationship dynamic/configuration, and/or race?

This interactive workshop, “Transcending Shame,” tackles the topic of personal shame through audience participation and group exercises where you get to delve into subjects like:

An incident (or incidents) in your life of which you're ashamed.
The difference between guilt and shame.
Ways you can recognize that you're being shamed; and
Aspects of mental health that we don't talk about…until NOW.

About the Educator: 
Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti is an autistic published writer, as well as a former fundamentalist Christian, and a breast cancer survivor. In fact, it was the cancer diagnosis in 2013 that caused her to realize how short life is; this served as the catalyst that caused her to come out, LOUD AND PROUD, as sex-positive, bisexual, and polyamorous. Plus, it helped her to set boundaries and refuse to accept shabby treatment (especially shaming) from others. It also helped her to stop caring about what other people think of her. She is very much interested in helping others identify shame, recognize shaming behavior, and finally, to transcend shame. She lives in Seattle, WA.
