TBW has been asked to give a workshop at the Blent Trans Festival on 9 January 2016 in Utrecht. The theme of this workshop is "I am myself!". Being confident in yourself. Being proud of who you are. Defining your own space. For many transgender people these things are not easy if you could not be or were not allowed to be yourself, for a long time!
In this workshop we will look at things that make you confident and proud of yourself. We will talk about features and things that make us stronger. Where do we draw strength from? And how we can keep this strength (better) in difficult times?
We will also do physical things. Through meditation and breathing techniques, we will make better contact with our bodies. This brings us closer to our core and helps us stand firmly in the world.
Jochem Verdonk is a transman and trans activist. In May he organised the very successful Trans & Bare Weekend for transmen. In October he gave the very well attended workshop "At home in your body!" at Transgender Group Nijmegen and there followed in December the intimate workshop "My body and I".
