Event description
Join us for a powerful day of discussion around how sex shows up in our faith community and the trauma that can come with it.

About this Event

"SEX, FAITH TRAUMA & RELIGION"

We will spend the day looking at the ideas of 'sex" and unpacking questions that are hardly discussed within the context of spirituality:

  • How does the subject of sex affect one's faith journey?
  • How does one heal when their essence as a sexual being has been violated spiritually, emotionally and/or physically?
  • What taboos exist and how do we arrive at a place of respect even if our faith doctrine disagrees?

Through informative workshops as well as a dynamic panel, we will look at these questions and so much more.

Panelists - Dr. Elyse Ambrose, Rev. Kyndra Frazier, Nala Toussaint, Rev. Charles Lee Watterson.

Panel Moderator - Rev. Susan Webley

Host. Dr. Renair Amin
