Upcoming Events

Workshops, Labs + Community Gatherings

Self Study Lab hosts integrative, community, and educational events for deepening connection, embodied healing, and intentional intimacy in San Diego, CA and occasionally online. We believe access to connection and community is vital for healing and liberation and our events center education, integration, and connection with self to deepen our connections with others through healing, wellness, rope, and kink. Events are facilitated from a trauma-informed foundation, and strive to begin promptly at the event start time and end on time. This allows us to co-creating a closed container that each guest can find and determine their own sense of safety, comfort, and opening within. Each event holds space for self selected pay-what-you-can ticket pricing and we offer payment plans and relational equity pricing for most of our offers.
