What is the relevance :
We all grew up with a lot of unanswered questions about sexuality. The rights & wrongs, the dos and don’ts surrounding our questions increased our confusion. It was safer then to push these questions under the carpet. Feelings of shame & guilt is often get associated with natural sexual needs. More than ever before, children today are curious and get flooded with incomplete information on this subject. The two day workshop is about getting answers to the questions that one could not ask when growing up. It is also about gaining the skill to answer children and educate them about this vital & valuable dimension about becoming a man or a woman.

Who is it for:
Parents, Teachers, Counsellors and any adult interested in learning more about this subject.
