Class Description:
The great Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh asserted that “to love without knowing how to love wounds the person we love,” To love another, we must first love our Self. To love our Self, we must stop carrying the baggage of “should” and instead listen and disclose our authenticity to our self, so we can do so with others. This class clarifies that journey and offers tools to live in con-fidence (con - with, fidence - our truth).

Master SG often speaks of the importance of authenticity in his Foundations classes: the Big Life, Spiritual M/s, Integrity, Consent, Old Leather Values of Honor and Respect, etc. Being your authentic self is critical to doing your authentic life, living in integrity, giving valid consent, taking care of your Self, and serving your Self and others with grace and joy.
Presenter Bio:
In the late 70's, Silver Gryphon (SG) discovered the San Francisco leather community and sought education the only way that was available then, by apprenticing to a gay leather couple. Since then, many others have contributed to his education, notably including several dozen who have served him over the years. He graduated from the Journeyman 3 Academy and has been the HeadMaster of LeatherQuest in San Francisco. He created and has been facilitating HumanAlive for 10 years, a weekly program that supports authenticity in authority-exchange relationships.
