The Growth Arc Presents: Alec Lossiah on  Masculinity and Self Pleasure
Jun

The Growth Arc Presents: Alec Lossiah on Masculinity and Self Pleasure

Join Alec Lossiah, a non-binary & trans feminine Sexuality Educator, for a workshop about masturbation and the penis. It will center how methods, materials, and attitudes about self pleasure affect social relationships and the relationship with the self.

This workshop is intended to fill a gap in the current landscape of sexual healing for cis men, people with non-binary identities, and transwomen. Most modern sexual education around masturbation focuses on people with vulvas, and this is a chance for people born with penises and for those socialized to be masculine to have space to learn and share about their own experiences. People of all genders and bodies may attend.

This presentation has a suggested donation of $15 a person however, we will not turn anyone away! Please donate as you can to ensure programming like this can continue in our community.

The Growth Arc Presents: Reclamation Collective on Religious Sexual and Relationship trauma

The Growth Arc Presents: Reclamation Collective on Religious Sexual and Relationship trauma

Reclamation Collective is an expanding group of folks who identify with religious trauma and are seeking space to process, deconstruct, and reclaim! Our collective holds to the definition of religious trauma as defined by Dr. Marlene Winell, Ph.D. and founder of Journey Free, as follows: It is the condition experienced by people who are struggling with leaving an authoritarian, dogmatic religion and coping with the damage of indoctrination. We may be going through the shattering of a personally meaningful faith and/or breaking away from a controlling community and lifestyle.  You can get connected with us and consider attending our events, retreats, or support groups by following the Reclamation Collective on Instagram or Facebook!


One of the themes we have focused on is reclaiming intimacy and sexuality through various routes towards sexual liberation! So many of us have come out of communities that emphasized sexual repression and shame surrounding desire and non-traditional partnership.  We invite anyone seeking space to deconstruct some of the patriarchal and toxic monogamist expectations spoken into religious communities to join us for a conversation at the first collaboration between The Growth Arc and Reclamation Collective on Thursday, June 20th from 6:00-8:00pm.
