Video: 2010 Facilitator Gathering

Finally! Videos from the 2010 Facilitator Gathering in Oakland CA.

*** This page is private – that is, there is no link here from the menu. So bookmark it!

They are videos – also not listed – so book mark them or return here to find them again. (You won’t find them by searching on YouTube)

Here you will find a little history, updates as of 2010, how we support each other as community, lots about sex and gender as it relates to CP, a new ‘Gateway’ workshop you can take home and use right away, how to coordinate with other Facilitators in your region – so you all get more participants – and a whole hour on promotion and marketing.

These videos are of the presentations – what you don’t see is all the cuddling, discussion, brainstorming, sharing and good food – sorry!

 

First, just for fun – a Teaser! (1 min): (because I was teaching myself how to use iMovie)

Gateway Workshop – 35 min:
