Mediation for consensual culture

Raised by 21 people in 10 months
Hi all, my name is Katie and I'm running this campaign to support an awesome friend who wants to take their work on to a new level.

Joris has been working as a workshop facilitator promoting sexual consent for several years now (since 2009). Instead of just promoting verbal consent they dive deep into trusting yourself, body language and also unlearning all the deeply-learned shit that keep us from being authentically ourselves.

What they are teaching is not just a method but creating a whole atmosphere in which consensual interactions can easily happen. This is a totally different mindset from the usual culture of making compromises that most of us grew up in. It's an atmosphere and mindset in which people work together to create the maximum well-being for all. Much of the feedback that Joris receives says that their work is healing and/or eye-opening for the participants, so they decided to go further into that direction and get a degree as a non-academic psychotherapist.

But what Joris notices over and over again, is that this approach does not only apply in sexual interactions and relationships. They recently started writing more about the ideas behind it and the work itself. For three years, Joris has been looking to do a mediation training, because their heart is really in working with groups and relationships. This would definitely be the next step in spreading the ideas and also for Joris' career. Unfortunately, Joris as a single mother has so far not been able to afford this training and this is where you come in: Please join the efforts to make it possible for this awesome person to take the next step.

Wonderful people! An update from Joris:

"Hey people, i am so very grateful for all your help! Let me give you an update on the fundraiser for my mediation training:
You donated 546,- through gofundme, 410,- directly to me or Katie and the eu gives me 500,- as a "Bildungsprämie" That already makes 1426 Euros!!!Almost half of the money is in!!! Even the school decided to support me and give me two seperate contracts, so i probably can get a second Bildungsprämie for the second part. But: I still need more help! Next weekend there is the introduction weekend and I have to sign the contract for the whole year. Right now i don't dare yet :( It is so difficult to ask for help again, but could you please continue to support me by donating and spreading the word? Please? And special thanks to all the anonymous donors, as I can't thank you in person..."

Katie here again: this campaign is restoring my faith in human nature. Please consider donating even 5 Euros! Two even. If we all do that we are home free

Very exciting news to share: thanks to the amazing generosity of friends, Joris's first weekend is paid for! Not only that but we've found that a Bildingsprämie is available too. With just a bit more help from anyone who is able, no matter how small a contribution, we can definitely make this happen. We have a very happy, very grateful and very motivated Joris over here who can't wait to get started. Please consider throwing a few Euros this way, in celebration of Joris' upcoming birthday if you need an excuse Once agsin, thank you!
