About This Event

March 29th

$10 at the door only

Getting Intimate is an interactive workshop series that explores identity, relationship, self-expression, and intimacy through facilitated activities and open dialogue. Creators Lauren (Ren) Langer (she/they) and Sarah Silverstein (she/her) have a combined more than 20 years of group facilitation experience and utilize creative curriculum delivery methods in the exploration of Self and society. Participants can expect to engage in experiential learning opportunities such as directed small group conversations, movement-oriented self-reflection, and both written and verbal exercises.

 Getting Intimate is a challenge by choice workshop, and participants are encouraged to only share as much as they feel comfortable sharing. Male, female, and non-binary identifying folks welcome. LGBTQ+ inclusive. Come alone or with others. Physical impairments and mobility differences can be accommodated.

Join us for our two-part series on March 29th and April 25th for Getting Intimate: Monogamy and Beyond, featuring guest facilitator Sarah Goleman-Mercer (she/her). In a society that defaults to and is built around the concept of monogamy, exploring different relationship structures can be a vulnerable and daunting task. What does it mean to intentionally choose monogamy, non-monogamy, or polyamory? What makes a romantic partnership sacred? How do shadowy concepts like jealousy, infidelity, and insecurity play a role in our relationship decision making? How can we critically examine social defaults to cultivate our own authentic expression of partnership? 

Through movement-based activities, interactive dialogues, and story-telling exercises, this workshop will unpack our social understanding of partnership and how it can limit or enhance our ability to connect. We hope to create a space of compassionate curiosity wherein participants can look inwards and examine their own relationship with relationship, as well as learn from the experiences of others. This workshop is open to partnered and non-partnered individuals alike.

*Note: While this two-part series will build upon itself, these workshops are also designed to stand on their own. If you can only attend one date, you are still welcome to join!
