Hey friends! Lots of us have been talking about wanting to have more informed conversations about Consent. Perhaps you've been subject to some kind of interaction that has been uncomfortable. Perhaps you've been negligent in your own actions or have been the recipient of such behavior. How would you like to improve how you relate to other people AND have more fun in your interactions?
We've contracted with Sar Surmick, Director of Consent Academy, to create an educational workshop customized for our Burner community.
Note: This workshop will have similar curriculum to the Consent Academy/Ignition NW workshop held in February, which was sold out. Seating for this workshop is limited, and you must be registered to attend. Reserve your spot today!

"Understanding Consent": A facilitated evening of education and conversation
What to expect:
We all need to be able to talk about Consent. Most of us have learned the idea that No means No, but Consent goes way beyond that. It is present in our lives every single day. Explore with us how to move beyond simply giving or accepting a No. Get some tips, tricks, and tools for talking about Consent, whether it's about a new relationship, sex, a first hug, or a quick spanking. Learn how to move towards an informed Yes and a better understanding of what it means to live in a Consent Culture.
Consent can be sexy. More than that, it can help us create mutually beneficial connections and a stronger, safer community for us all. Join us to learn these essential skills, and help build the expectation of a Consent Community we can all be proud to participate in.
