Self-Regulation Skills During a Crisis: How to Calm Yourself Down: Facebook Livestream Monday at 10am

I will be offering a brief talk on Facebook Live on Monday at 10am PST on self-regulation skills during a crisis. We will talk about mental health and stress during this moment and offering some tools that have been helping me. We will also do a brief meditation together to help move the body out of the stress state and into the rest and calm state so that our bodies can relax, rest, and heal when appropriate during a difficult time.
All you have to do is tune in at 10am PST at the Ocean and Crow Facebook Live link:

The Anxiety Show: F&*k Rape!

See Julie read from her new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault at the Anxiety Comedy Show on March 1st

The Anxiety Show is a hilarious comedy show that focuses on busting up difficult subjects like depression, mental illness, and, on March 1st, rape! Yay!
I am going to be reading some of the funnier excerpts from my new book about recovering after sexual assault, and I think you should come. The show often sells out, so get your tickets early!

See you there!

Evolve: Yoga Teacher Mentorship with Paid Practicum

Do you want to evolve in your career as a yoga teacher? Do you want to know how to cue effectively, offer hands-on assists, learn about trauma-informed yoga, and figure out the business aspects of teaching yoga so that you can actually make some money and have a career that supports you?
Work with me privately in my new mentorship program. If you successfully complete all the pieces of the practicum, you’ll get a paid class, so the program nearly pays for itself. Learn more and find out if this program is for you here:

Best Feminist Books to Bring to College

My new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango 2019) was chosen for Pretty Progressive’s list of the 14 best feminist books to bring with you to college! My book is aimed at sexual assault survivors, but it’s also for anyone who wants to learn more about it, and it’s filled with useful information about consent and holistic sexuality, so it’s a good pick for anyone heading to college, whether they’ve experience an assault or not. I’m thrilled to be included in this list. See the whole thing here:
