This introductory workshop from The Proper Lady – a local group that uses a consent-based education model to offer discussions about sexual, mental, physical, and spiritual health for young women – includes education on consent and its cultural history, sexuality, and mindfulness. Unlike the traditional sexual health educational setting, The Proper Lady community workshops are held in small groups with intentional guidelines encouraging vulnerability and safety. This free event is an open workshop for all ages 18 and up.
