This interactive workshop tackles the topic of personal shame and the damage that it causes when left unchecked.
Do you experience guilt, shame, and feelings of inferiority around your kinks, sexuality/sexual expression, gender identity, and/or race? Do you constantly compare yourself to others? Do you see yourself as defective? This interactive workshop tackles the topic of personal shame and the damage that it causes when left unchecked. It also gives participants the opportunity to: understand the meaning of shame; learn the difference between guilt and shame; gain awareness of shaming phrases and behaviors; and recognize when someone is shaming them.
Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti has been a panelist and workshop presenter since 2017, beginning with the very first workshop she ever created, "Transcending Shame." And even though she's mostly a presenter, that DOES NOT keep her from learning. For example, when she began researching the topic of shame, before teaching about it for the first time, she learned, among other things, that shame lives in secrecy.
Gloria is currently hard at work on her memoir entitled, "A Different Drum: A Black, Autistic, Polyamorous, Mentally Ill, Former Fundamentalist Christian/Cult Member and Breast Cancer Survivor WHO JUST WANTS TO FIT IN." She lives in Seattle, WA.
