“Teaching provides me with great joy. I love seeing emotional and intellectual connections made in class discussions. We’ve all contributed to educating each other in many ways. It’s my great fortune to participate in the creation of these moments.”




Seamless Service

Sometimes defensiveness appears in even great relationships. This class explores options of overcoming and getting a new point of view on defensiveness. Time honored charm, understatement and deliberate response allow you to serve seamlessly. We are going to discuss service interruptions and the possibilities to lessen those unwelcome incidents for both tops and bottoms. Expect to walk out with some new tools and perspectives!
