JULIA SAMUEL - HOW GRIEF WORKS

KIM LETIZIA & PHILLIPA G - THE VAGINA WORKSHOP

 

JULIA SAMUEL - HOW GRIEF WORKS (7.45pm approx - arrive any time)

Julia Samuel MBE is a grief psychotherapist who has spent the last twenty-five years working with bereaved families, both in private practice and with the NHS at St Mary's Paddington where she pioneered the role of maternity and paediatric counsellor. She is Co-Founder Patron of Child Bereavement UK, where she continues to play a central role. Grief Works is her first book.

In How Grief Works, we hear stories from those who have experienced great love and great loss – and survived. Stories that explain how grief unmasks our greatest fears, strips away our layers of protection and reveals our innermost selves.

 

KIM LETIZIA & PHILIPPA G - THE VAGINA WORKSHOP (8.45pm approx - arrive any time)

Kim Letizia and Phillipa G are facilitators, educators and community leaders who run workshops that invite new possibilities, growth and empowerment, whilst nurturing a safe and open-hearted space. With a passion for sharing real and vulnerable stories, they are also the founders and editors of Sex+ zine

Suitable and relevant for all genders, this workshop will expand your understanding, appreciation and competency around vulvas. Whilst remaining fully clothed there is much you can do to learn about and expand your competency with vulvas. Vulva drivers can learn how to name, integrate and sense their vulvas in new ways allowing you to recognise and share your desire and find new pathways to pleasure. Others can learn how to appreciate the vulval landscape and confidently help vulva owners to more beautiful pleasure experiences. Knowledge gives you power and in this case it is pleasure power.


Tickets are £5 in advance (£3 concessions) or £10 on the door.
