Womyn & Desire: What and Why We Want

March 28, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm

Womyn & is a series of monthly workshops that supports the modern adult in detangling and addressing relevant challenges, by intentionally gathering with others who are interested in enriching their lives through connection.

In this series, we will explore a range of topics and ask ourselves how we can know, and then honor, what we want in a culture bent on shaping, defining and controlling our desires.

This 3 week series is guided by Lia Avellino, LMSW, a relational therapist who supports individuals in getting in touch with, and expressing their authentic selves. She specializes in such areas as LGBTQIAA+ concerns, women’s health, and modern love. In organizing this series, she has focused its aim on helping you identify what you are truly hungry for, learning strategies to reconnect with these basic wants, and assisting you as you begin to address challenges in expressing your wants and needs to relevant others on your journey toward fullness and fulfillment.


This workshop will take place every Thursday for 3 weeks, beginning in mid-March. The dates of attendance include:

Thursday, March 14th 2019, 6:45PM EST – 8:00PM EST
(Please choose this date, if you plan to purchase all 3 sessions in this workshop series).
Thursday, March 21st 2019, 6:45PM EST – 8:00PM EST
