Past sessions covered introduction to shamanic practice, relationship to plants, and death and dying.
These lectures are free but donations for The Resiliency Institute, a non-profit, are appreciated. Size is limited and pre-registration is required 24 hrs before the event by emailing Allison at wildwomaninthesuburbs@gmail.com. Zoom details will be sent out within 12 hrs prior to the event.

The Pleasure Project, Reclaiming Female Pleasure, will explore what pleasure means; what brings participants pleasure through meditation and journaling; our ability and comfort with accessing pleasure; how being disconnected from joy and pleasure leads to a less embodied, less holistic life; and the social justice/feminist issue of pleasure.

Participants will be assessed for goals and outcomes prior to and following class. To register, please call NextSteps at 708-467-0657.
