Issues Particular to the Transgender Experience
Presenter(s): Ellen Siegel
This session examines the specific nature of what a transperson concerns themselves with on daily basis. You will very quickly understand the kind of support a person in this situation needs. You will acquire knowledge and appreciation of the many issues that are essential to address. We will cover some ordinary issues that become extraordinary for people who are transgender. The ordinary issues are: valuing one’s self, desiring respect from others, dealing with a dysfunctional family, breaking free of addictions (if any), seeking the companionship of others (friends and more intimate partners), gainful employment, creative endeavors, socializing, and recreation.

Do you love chocolate? The luscious, smooth, delicious kind? Do you have a stressful life? Do you need a way to have a small relaxing escape? Learn a calming Chocolate Meditation process that will also teach you the proper chocolate tasting techniques. We will meditate with a variety of good chocolate types.

We will have fun consuming and discussing the best things you will put in your mouth this weekend! Vegan, nut-free, and gluten free chocolate will be available as most fine chocolate is all of these.
