SFE (P)– Empowerment Self Defense (5:45 – 7:30 pm MT) -- CANCELED

Violence can take different forms—emotional and verbal as well as physical. In this presentation Alena Schaim will discuss how what we were taught about safety might contrast with the way violence happens most often.

She will help us explore our relationship with conflict, since conflict avoidance can lead to situations of disempowerment and defenselessness. And last but not least, she will lead the group in hands-on exercises that can help the group be more prepared and feel more empowered that can work for everybody—regardless of ability

Open to members and non-members. Bring a friend!
