Building And Breaking Boundaries (with Sarah Casper), June 9, 2024 11 am PT 2pm ET 7pm UK

“Boundaries” is a buzzword. But most frameworks for teaching and talking about them are rigid and don't take context into account. How you navigate boundaries with your boss will be different than how you do so with your child. How you approach boundaries with one partner might even be different than how you approach boundaries with another partner. 

 

In this 90-minute workshop by Sarah Casper (@comprehensiveconsent) and Laura Boyle (@readyforpolyamory), you’ll learn practical strategies for setting, respecting, and negotiating boundaries across situations. You’ll also learn how conversations about new boundaries or broken boundaries can create stronger and more fulfilling relationships.

 

Join us in conversation and learn how to navigate boundaries with all those people you love.

Bottoming Safety 201: Negotiating Edgeplay as a Submissive or Bottom, June 19, 2024, 6pm PT 9pm ET

Presented online for Wicked Grounds - Sliding scale priced class covering some of the common (and a few uncommon) ways that people play that aren't in a Negotiation 101 class - questions to ask to find out if a top is actually experienced in some of these types of play; common triggers to look out for and disclose in oneself; types of play that are not always regarded as edgeplay but have a high risk profile that the class should perhaps consider risks before engaging in with new partners and how to be more cognizant of what additional risk one is taking on in a scene.

The Ready for Polyamory Podcast and Classes

It can be challenging to find clear information about non-monogamy in formats we internalize well. The Ready for Polyamory Podcast is available on all major podcast services and includes overviews of big current topics in non-monogamy as well as important basics. The guests who come join me on there are a wonderful cross section of non-monogamous life, education, and creativity.

Some of my most popular classes are being made available as downloadables on my ko-fi shop. If you can't make the live classes, or the fact that many of the organizations I partner with don't allow for recording means you don't have time to process information fully, making a purchase of a recording might be for you. If something isn't available yet, send me an email - I'll let you know if it's one of the ones in preparation, or when I'm teaching it next.
