Beyond Eggplants and Peaches: Relationship Communication IRL
Join us as therapist and author Rahim Thawer of Sherbourne Health & Ryerson University will be facilitating an interactive workshop, Beyond Eggplants and Peaches: Relationship Communication IRL.
Popular culture likes to remind us that the key to a successful relationship is communication. But what does that look like at the moments when you’re feeling ashamed, self-conscious, avoidant, worried about loss, jealous, attracted to multiple people, or feeling trapped in domesticity? This interactive and experiential workshop will begin with an exploration of some of the unique experiences queer guys face when seeking both casual sex and long term relationships. We will then delve deeper into our own attachment styles, approaches to open relationships, experiences of jealousy, and the nitty gritty of relationship communication.
Date: Saturday, November 10, 1 PM – 4 PM
Location: The Junction
1138 Davie Street
