Transcending Shame

Sat, Jun 1 from 1pm - 2:30pm

This event has passed.

Course Introduction:
Do you experience guilt, shame and feelings of inferiority around your sexuality/sexual expression, gender identity, and/or race? Do you regularly feel inferior, or "not good enough," especially because of your race, gender expression or sexual orientation? Do you constantly compare yourself to others? Do you see yourself as defective? Do you experience tremendous guilt around your sexuality/sexual expression? This interactive workshop will provide you with tools in order to: identify shame, recognize shaming behavior, and transcend shame. 

Course Description:
This workshop tackles the topic of personal shame and the damage that it causes when left unchecked. For participants to create self-safety, it is necessary to interrupt shaming language. This interactive workshop gives participants the opportunity to: understand the meaning of shame; learn the difference between guilt and shame; gain awareness of shaming phrases and behaviors that are commonly used; recognize when they are being shamed; and learn ways to confront others who shame them.


No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Water available. Please bring your own cup or bottle.
Open to all 18+
Attendance is limited to 30 people.

About the Educator:
Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti (she/her/hers) is a breast cancer survivor, whose 2013 diagnosis reminded her just how short life is. This served as the catalyst to help her come out as bisexual, polyamorous and sex-positive, for which she had previously experienced tremendous shame. In fact, until recently, Gloria believed that there was something inherently shameful about her, due to her being a Black bisexual femme woman with mental illness, as well as a former fundamentalist Christian and cult member. She is very much interested in helping others identify shame, recognize shaming behavior, and transcend shame.
