“Groundwork for Leadership” 
Instructor: Meghaan Lurtz
Saturday, May 10th at 3:30pm

We all have a capable leader within us and we all possess talents that give way to effective leadership, but the trick is to recognize these talents in order to engage them. 

In this workshop we’ll talk about the five basic steps of discovery in order to uncover your inner leadership style. The heart of the process is to understand your real self vs ideal self and the steps you will need to take to close the gap. We’ll go over available tools, research and share ideas with one another, as well as arm ourselves with an action plan.

This workshop is a perfect primer for anybody looking to grow into a leadership position, whether it be in your personal or professional life.

Bring a pencil or a pen and be prepared to speak up, because very few leaders can inspire in silence.

“Authentic Sexuality”
Instructor: Lea Caughlan of The Rubber Rose
Saturday, May 10th at 3:30pm

This workshop offers tools to bring clarity and accuracy to our self definition of personal sexuality. Those tools range from the empowering sense of self, to tangible weapons of mass pleasure that assert self love does in fact start with self. It will help participants understand what elements of sexuality have been instilled upon them–by media, family values and past relationships–and how to take control to make these elements. The goal is to exhibit an authentic sexuality that reflects our true desires, allowing us to take into our own hands the power of our own bodies and desires, owning our sexuality and self, completely and unabashedly.
