Event description
Join us for an evening with educator Shafia Zaloom, author of "Sex, Teens & Everything in Between"

About this event

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, adolescents are exposed to 14,000 references to sexuality per year. Do those references communicate healthy sexuality that is safe, responsible, pleasurable and grounded in authentic connection? Or do they communicate negative gender roles and dynamics and emphasize performance sex?

If you're not talking to your kids about sex, you're the only one not talking to your kids about sex. Join us for a conversation on how to approach these challenging and courageous conversations. Learn how to discuss safe sexuality practices, the importance of consent, and the value of relationships grounded in authentic connection through the conscious practice of care and dignity

Shafia Zaloom, veteran sex educator and author of the newly released book, Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between, will guide us toward a deeper understanding of how to encourage our children to embrace a healthier, more joyful, and responsible understanding of sexuality.
