Humans crave belonging, it’s even smack dab in the middle of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. This week, Dixie De La Tour of Bawdy Storytelling tells us about her years of building community. We learn how acknowledging your authentic self through community changes your self-perception; self-talk transforms from “it was all my fault, I’m a horrible person” to “I'm ok, I did the best I could, I’m not alone.” We touch on the power of vulnerability, cultivating empathy, and finding the courage to tell the stories people really want and need to hear. You’ll learn how to find community in unlikely places no matter where or how you live and why connecting with others in a non-sexual way is essential in sexual subcommunities. A supportive community is not only life-changing, it can also be lifesaving. Dixie also shares a powerful story about how the community she built and her use of the word “vagina” in that community not only healed trauma for an entire family but stopped a habitual abuser from continuing to commit unthinkable crimes.
