Friendships are deeply magical. Our friends can be: family, mirrors to ourselves, bringers of tenderness and treats, deliverers of loving accountability, holders of our deepest secrets, gigglers at our best comedic moments, and offerers of support, companionship, and affection. Friendships are often overlooked in favour of romantic partnerships and we feel this extra hard, especially around valentines day. It can also be hard and nerve-wracking to meet new people and make friends in a busy, isolating world. In this workshop we’ll talk about the radical possibilities of friendship and discuss practical ways to make new friends and develop and deepen relationships. Let’s make room to celebrate the powerful realities of friendship and daydream futures of palship that we all deserve!

This workshop is for all ages and facilitated by 2 non-experts who are pretty good at making friends.
