Apr 1 @ 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm
[Consent Academy] Transformative Accountability: Part 2 @ Gallery Erato
Consent Culture is growing and evolving in many ways. With more people speaking out about their experiences, how do we react? How do we hold those involved accountable? This workshop addresses those questions and more. Designed specifically for leadership or people supporting others in crisis, this workshop will go deep on secondary trauma, how to prevent retraumatizing those involved, techniques for taking reports, and how to design an accountability process that makes sense for you and your organization. We all make mistakes, but it’s the outcome that makes a difference. This class will take place over two days. Part one will be held on Monday, March 30th. Part two will be held on Wednesday, April 1st. There are no tickets available for just one day. Prerequisites: Completion of Consent for Leadership or permission from the instructor. To purchase a ticket, email Sar at [email protected] 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 bottle or cup. Open to all 18+ Attendance is limited to 20 people. Questions may be directed to: [email protected] About the Educators: The Consent Academy is a group of dedicated educators and activists who provide quality consent training and consultations. We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage.

Will that Hold Me: Assessing Hardpoints for Suspension Bondage 1:00 pm
Will that Hold Me: Assessing Hardpoints for Suspension Bondage @ online via Zoom
Apr 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Will that Hold Me: Assessing Hardpoints for Suspension Bondage @ online via Zoom
The most catastrophic accidents in suspension bondage are caused by hardpoint failure. Yet for most of us it is the one thing in our suspension play we have the least control or knowledge about. This class is for both tops and bottoms with an eye toward giving you the skills you need to look up and decide “will that hold me” (or the one you love). We will discuss in layman’s terms how things actually fail and what signs to look for that a hardpoint has been poorly maintained or is too weak. I will show examples of things done right and things done wrong as well as demonstrate some failures in the class. This class is a must for any top or bottom who wants to play with suspension. There will be time for discussion of class examples as well and students are encouraged to bring their questions. Although the official end time for the class is 3:00pm, the instructor will stay online to answer more questions if needed. *Please note that at the present time we are utilizing Zoom for our online events. We are aware of the security concerns and are taking all necessary precautions on our end, including not recording this session.

The Pleasure Practice @ online via Zoom
This Month’s Practice: Feel the Earth kissing back Awakening at the intersections of eco-sex and eco-philosophy. A series of guided meditations punctuated by songs, strengthening our connection to our living Earthbody. Experiencing ourselves as an intrinsic part of the universal web of wonder that surrounds us and abounds from within. Why Pleasure? We honor Pleasure as resistance to apathy. Where trauma restricts, Pleasure opens. Attuning to the self healing power of pleasure as our birthright. A space to revitalize, listen to and attend to our own needs and desires; a place of self discovery. Pleasure as the source of sacred sweetness, we embrace the nectar of our own unfolding. Why solo? Our Pleasure is our own. Pleasure is an experience we cultivate from within. Why together? We practice in community to strengthen our sense of belonging, offer witness to each other and experience our interconnectedness in a brave, vulnerable and receptive space. We intend to create community that supports the unlearning of shame, dismantling of heteronorms and affirms queerness. We welcome all gender expressions. The Practice: Simple and profound. Each workshop offers a specific invitation to engage with pleasure and can be taken as a stand alone workshop while the series intends to build community. Each practice allows 15 minutes for arriving, 15 minutes for setting group agreements and intentions, an embodiment invitation and song leading into one hour of our special activity, and concluding with 30 minutes of savoring, mingling and imbibing something seasonal and delicious. *Please note that at the present time we are utilizing Zoom for our online events.

[Consent Academy] Consent Discussion Group for Men @ online via Zoom
                ***This month’s meeting will be an online session via Zoom. Please still RSVP at [email protected] Instructions will be emailed to you. We all want to do our best and support each other when it comes to consent and consensual behavior. There are lots of discussions about consent going on right now, but engaging in them comes with its own challenges. To help support everyone’s efforts in moving the discussion forward, the Consent Academy is starting a new discussion group for male-identified folk to talk about issues around consent; both sexual consent and every-day consent. We’ll have space to share ideas, understanding, and concerns in a male focused space. The group is open to all male-identified folk who want to engage in this important conversation. The group is free, but you’re welcome to bring snacks,drinks, or information to share. If you’d like to attend, please contact [email protected] to RSVP and receive the address. Feel free to reach out with any questions as well!

[Consent Academy] Transformative Accountability Part 2 @ online via Zoom
              Consent Culture is growing and evolving in many ways. With more people speaking out about their experiences, how do we react? How do we hold those involved accountable? This workshop addresses those questions and more. Designed specifically for leadership or people supporting others in crisis, this workshop will go deep on secondary trauma, how to prevent retraumatizing those involved, techniques for taking reports, and how to design an accountability process that makes sense for you and your organization. We all make mistakes, but it’s the outcome that makes a difference Please note: Completion of either Consent for Leadership or the Consent Educator Retreat, or permission from the instructor is required to take this workshop. Tickets are non-refundable. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions. Details: Purchase advance tickets here! Workbooks will be provided.

We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage.
