Negotiation with Flickerflame
Negotiation is a way to communicate clearly about what we want to do and how we want to feel. It can also be intimate and hot. This class will cover negotiation in terms of communicating
what we want to do --- with this person, at this time
what we hope to get out of it
what physical and emotional risks we're willing to take on, together, at this time
Along the way, we'll bust some myths such as "Negotiation means we have to script the scene. It leaves no room for spontaneity" and "Negotiation is dry and unsexy."
In addition to lecture, this class uses readings of actual negotiations and voluntary role playing exercises.
SMART Beginnings - Boundaries with _sandals_
Boundaries are essential building blocks for our everyday lives, and important expressions of consent. You can't practice good consent without first knowing good boundaries! In this class we'll cover what boundaries are (and what they aren't!), go over different kinds of boundaries, talk about how to set them and how to enforce them when they're crossed.
