Are you ready to dive into the world of healthy relationships, communication, and consent? You might be feeling both excited and nervous about exploring new connections and understanding boundaries. Not to mention, figuring out how to approach or deepen relationships can be very confusing. We know that whether it’s friends, family, colleagues, or intimate partners, having healthy relationships takes practice and requires its own set of skills. You are not alone if you feel unsure or awkward! With new environments, new people, and new experiences awaiting you, we want you to feel ready to support yourself and others in making great memories. In this keynote with Pleasure and Relationships Educator, Luna Matatas, we’ll explore the challenges and rewards of building healthy relationships. Together, we’ll identify tools for communication and navigating consent, learn about boundaries and making new connections, unpack rejection and shame, and focus on building self-acceptance through a culture of consent.
