This is an educational, not therapeutic or healing event, though this type of work may bring up strong emotions and feelings. This often may be connected to previous traumatic experiences. The hosts guarantee a safe space, but by no means are qualified to work with trauma. If you are facing or recently went through a difficult breakup/divorce or have a history of abusive relationships, unfortunately, this event is not for you. In our work we are committed to high ethical standards, such as are safety and consent – we ask the participants to take care of themselves and not participate in exercises that might make them feel uncomfortable and/or unsafe. Some of the exercises might involve physical touch (but again, you are free not to participate).
