Nwccc Community Meeting says
We are different from the mainstream culture when it comes to how we view sensuality and touch. Are we living our dream the way we really want to? As we grow into our new culture what issues are coming up that we want to address together?

The meeting will cover issues that have come up for our groups, but will not focus exclusively on boundaries or consent. I believe that those issues point to the larger issues of growing pains for our new culture...for example how we tackle those issues will say more about our new culture than the issues themselves. Who are we and who do we want to be?

A facilitated meeting for interconnected consent and connection based communities in our region. If you care about consent and consider yourself to be a member of consent community, please attend this important meeting. If you aren't sure if that's you, ask yourself whether you attend gatherings that have a safer spaces policy, written or otherwise, in which varying degrees of touch are allowed to occur. (This includes sexual, asexual, and platonic spaces.) Help us work toward transparency within our beautiful community.

We are inviting communities that are dance and other movement-related communities that involve touch, LGBTQ and other sexual minorities; festivals and conventions that have touch-positive spaces or room parties; members of the kink and fetish communities; and members of alternative spirituality communities.

Dawn Menken has been selected as the professional facilitator. She is a professor at The Process Work Institute in Portland.

graduate school at the Process Work Institute and has a private practice where she works with individuals, couples
and families. She is the author of Speak Out: Talking About Love, Sex and Eternity and Raising Parents Raising Kids: Hands on Wisdom for the Next Generation.
