Boundary Setting (2 hours, $50)

This 2-hour workshop deals exclusively with verbal boundary setting. Personal boundaries are the limits we set with other people about what we are and are not comfortable with physically, emotionally, or mentally. Defining and holding your boundaries protects your space in the world and helps you move with confidence and clarity and engage with people in healthier and happier ways.In this class, you will learn to recognize when your boundaries are being crossed and then learn effective ways to ask that your boundaries be respected. Students have the opportunity to practice individualized scenarios. As with all of our classes, the Boundary Workshop is taught in an emotionally safe and supportive environment.

We currently are not offering any Boundary Setting workshops for the remainder of 2014.
