early memories and images • 

Our second salon about our early memories took place on Sunday, NOV 21, 2010. Different set of salonistas for the same topic as last month, and another GREAT conversation! Thank you all who attended!

the topic was:
early memories and images: what were you told? what did you see?

some questions on my mind:
  • what messages were you given directly? that is: what did your mother, father, family, friends & teachers say or not- say to you about your vagina, vulva, or your body, or female bodies in general?
  • what messages did you receive indirectly via advertising images, tv, movies, other media & institutions?
  • what expectations, beliefs, fears and hopes did any/all of the above this set up in you?
  • how did you feel, think, believe then? and now?

the salon program schedule:

3:00 - 3:30 pm: We say hello, view the v-book, check out what I'm painting. Each in our way, we settle in.
3:30 - 3:40 pm: I introduce the topic.
3:40 - 5:00 pm: We discuss, debate, consider, delight, get disgruntled, listen, question <- your choice.
5:00 - 5:30 pm: We wind down: So, how was that? What do you think? How do you feel now? Did we come to any conclusions or consensus, I wonder? Do we want to take this further and how?
5:30 - 6:00 pm: We disengage, float, exchange contact info if you like, say good-bye & thank you for participating!

what some of the salonistas had to say after Sunday's Afternoon Salon:
"I loved the talking - so affirming and so interesting."
"It was very intriguing and thought provoking."

Me, too! Thank you all for participating in conversations we don't usually get to have!
