KINK DISCUSSION GROUP Monthly on Saturdays 1:30 -3:30

For people wanting to learn more about themselves, kink & BDSM.  The group welcomes people who identify with any role preference, gender identity, sex, presentation, and experience level. Come share your experiences, questions, struggles, and insights in a supportive, non-judgmental environment with other folks who identify as kinky or as BDSM practitioners, are curious about kink, or are considering whether kink and/or BDSM are labels that works for them.

The group meets at Tribe Healing Arts Center. Facilitated by Rami Henrich, LCSW and Cindy Trawinski, Psy.D.  To find out more, click here for upcoming dates.
