Let's Talk About Trust

Trust plays an important role in dynamic relationships... and in any relationship! It is like a sapling nurtured by all involved parties; It strengthen as it grows and may breaks when wounded. Through continuous care, it can become resilient to hurts. However, once broken, it may wither and perish unless we heal it with proper and extra care.

So how do we care for and repair broken trust?

We will be covering topics including (but not limited to):

  • What happens when trust is broken
  • Self accountability and forgiveness
  • Mutual commitment, aligned goals moving forward

All experience levels are welcome.

Our aim is to foster a peer-sharing environment where new kinksters could learn from those with more experience. (Or the other way around, you'd never know!)

This is a FREE event. Please purchase drinks or food to support the venue.

While donations to our group are optional, they are recommended and greatly appreciated. All contributions go towards compensating the facilitator.

Rules & Guideline

  1. Respect the speaker. Give them your undivided attention. Do not talk over others.
  2. Let’s try to all contribute to the conversation. At least give a short input, or… “I don’t have an opinion on this yet” Keep your answer <1-2 mins long.
  3. If talking about potentially triggering topics please ask consent from the group before telling the story. (Ex. Abuse, Self Harm, Etc.)
  4. Respect that others will have differing opinions. Respect their right to express their thoughts. Stay curious and ask questions: Don’t try to convince them to change; instead, try to understand why they believe that. 
  5. “Let’s agree to disagree.” A phase to use when you would like to stop discussing this topic. If someone said that, please respect that and move on.
  6. Safety Signals: Covering your name tag.
