Woher weiß ich, was ich will?

mit Joris Kern

Woher weiß ich beim Sex eigentlich, was ich will? Muss ich überhaupt etwas wollen? Muss ich das wissen? Und wenn ja: Kommuniziere ich das? Und wie? Gibt es einen Willen zum Wollen?

Wir werden uns mit verschiedenen Ebenen von Wollen beschäftigen und mit Wegen, mehr über unser Wollen herauszufinden. Was braucht unser persönliches Wollen, unsere Lust und Begehren, um sich zu zeigen? Statt dem Dogma „Du musst wissen was du willst“ machen wir einen Raum auf, in dem Unsicherheit, Schüchternheit und Experimentieren genauso willkommen ist wie drängende Wünsche und lang gehegte Phantasien.

Embracing Jealousy

with Inna Barinberg

Jealousy is a mystery. We don’t often talk about it; even less often do we try to decode this complex structure, and take it down from its forbidding throne. Most advice books characterize jealousy as a negative and evil “emotion“. As a result, most people feel bad and that they are failing.

Not in this workshop.

By deciphering what is behind jealousy, we can encounter and approach our fears and anxieties. Instead of feeling angry that we still experience jealousy, we can accept it as a part of ourselves and treat it accordingly.

We will look at the positive aspects of jealousy, as well as addressing the parts that we want to find ways of dealing with. Through different methods, including individual and group work, you will have the opportunity to get to know different aspects of your jealousy, exchange with others (of course, only as much as you want and feel good about) and, by learning what lies behind jealousy, develop tools for managing it.

Inna Barinberg hat jahrelange Erfahrung mit queeren und geöffneten Beziehungen, seit einiger Zeit schreibt sie nicht nur Beiträge zu dem Thema, sondern gibt auch Workshops. Sie legt besonders viel Wert auf einen bestärkenden und unterstützenden Ansatz.
