Introduction to the Wheel of Consent®
Introduction to the Wheel of Consent®
Sunday, April 26, 2020
1pm - 6pm

There lies a tremendous amount of confusion around the nature of consent what it actually is  and how we consciously or unconsciously traverse in or out of the boundaries of it with our own bodies and in our relationships with others.

The Wheel of Consent offers a model of interaction that is based on exchanges of touch but applies to much more. It sheds light on troublesome and confusing interactions and clears them up. It turns out to describe the fundamental dynamics of most human relating.

The Wheel of Consent distinguishes between who is doing and who its for. With this distinction four kinds of touch become possible, opening a rich and varied possibility of experience. It shows you how to notice what it is you want, how to trust that, value it and communicate it.

Many people have found this workshop and the Wheel of Consent to be life-changing. The Wheel brings clarity, ease, freedom, gratitude, and generosity in all your interactions.

Using the Wheel as a framework, in this workshop we will map the landscape of consent through Giving and Receiving touch with the intention of mindful awareness, honoring, trust and communication. With a deeper understanding and practice of embodied consent you will...

...learn how to trust both your boundaries and your desires

...gain greater fluency in asking for what you truly want from others

...identify common reasons why people operate out of consent (including habitual patterns, held religious trauma, institutionalized systems of oppression and power)

And, ultimately

...gain access to more choices for yourselves in your body and in our relationships.

This workshop offers an opportunity to fine-tune your relational skills through somatic (body-based) explorations into the more radical and nuanced aspects of consent.

***This is a clothes-on workshop, and participation in any of the somatic practices is completely optional. This is not about sex, but certainly can be applied to all relationships, including and especially your intimate and sexual ones.

Through solo and partnered embodied practice and discussion, participants will refine their understanding of consent by:

-Gaining a more nuanced understanding of giving and receiving touch

-Differentiating between the act of giving versus doing, and between active and passive receiving states

-Increasing ones ability to fully receive (and why thats important!), recognizing what brings us out of a place of receiving and how to get back there

-Decreasing the risk of harm created by consent injuries and providing a common language for communicating consent

This class has been developed by Dr. Betty Martin who is a former Chiropractor and currently a sex and intimacy coach, sacred intimate and sexological bodyworker. Check out her free video resources on her website: bettymartin.org
