June WWS Orientation and Submission Party at Here and Now Healing Center

For those who have been curious to know what a submission party entails, but have been perhaps too shy to attend, now is your chance!

Every 2nd Saturday of the month is a Submission Saturday, and in June we are coupling our usual submission party with a WWS orientation for possible new members.  June’s submission party will be at Here and Now in El Sereno, CA.
