The Magic of Boundaries

Thursday, 7 March

Boundaries are the place where you and I can meet with love, safety, and respect. In this workshop, we will explore boundary setting, self-regulation, and conflict transformation with assertive communication practices, awareness tools, somatic movement, and voice activation. 

Find your No to live your Yes.” When we identify, define and communicate what doesn’t feel good, what we don’t want, we also begin to define the interpersonal relationships and experiences we ​​really want to have. When we free our NO, we also free our YES.

Toby Israel, founder and lead facilitator of Mujeres Fuertes Autodefensa (Women Empowered Self-Defense) will facilitate this dynamic, engaging, and powerful introduction to the communication pillar of the Empowerment Self-Defense (ESD) ‘methodology.
