On Thursday, November 7th, AVP and the UVic Gender Empowerment Centre will be offering a workshop called “Simple Tools for Skillful Boundaries” facilitated Hannah Harris-Sutro, a workshop facilitator from tio’tia:ke (Montreal).
In this workshop, participants will learn a simple, practical, body-centred process for figuring out their boundaries, articulating those boundaries to those who need to know about them, and maintaining those boundaries. Boundaries exist to structure our lives so that more of what we desire and need gets in, and more of what drains and hurts us stays out, and our bodies are a deep well of up-to-the-minute accurate information about our needs, desires, and capacities. Developing our skills around setting boundaries allows us to take better care of ourselves, have more mutually nurturing relationships, and ride the up & down ferris wheel of life more smoothly.
This workshop is dissociation-friendly & trauma-informed. Participation is a spectrum & nothing is obligatory. Snacks, bus tickets, and water/tea will be provided.
