Have you ever had that feeling that a person or situation was going to be bad for you, but you ignored that feeling, got all into the person or situation,
Have you ever had that feeling that a person or situation was going to be bad for you, but you ignored that feeling, got all into the person or situation, and then later found yourself saying “I KNEW IT! I KNEW THAT WAS GOING TO BE BIG PROBLEMS FOR ME!”?
Just like animals, our bodies are wired to be on the lookout for trouble, but so many times we ignore those signals and find ourselves in uncomfortable or potentially dangerous situations. In Intuitive Safety 101, we’ll talk about intuition (what is it and how do we know when it is talking to us?). We’ll practice verbal de-escalation techniques and learn how to kick some ass if we ever need to!
As a survivor of sexual assault, Heather’s top priority is teaching from a trauma-informed perspective; focusing on empowering, proactive strategies rather than the tired, unrealistic, victim-blamey “safety tips” that we as women/persons presenting as female are bombarded with daily. YOU are the expert in your personal safety and this class will teach you how to tap into that expertise. Appropriate for ages 13 and up.
