Event description

Description

The Wheel of Consent® is a foundational practice for all human relating. It's for anyone interested in learning more about themselves and improving the quality of their relationships – personal and professional, with lovers, friends, parents, children or colleagues. No prior experience is necessary.

In this #MeToo day and age, we need a new language around all the nuances of consent that includes awareness of embodied and systemic oppression, is trauma-sensitive, and simple enough to teach to 10-year-olds. I believe we have this tool in the form of the Wheel of Consent®, and look forward to sharing it with you. Please join me for a 2 day deep dive into embodied consent! Sat, 5/2 & Sun, 5/3 10am - 5:30 pm at the SomaSpace in Portland, OR.


What is this workshop about?

• Making choices – learning how to choose for yourself

Gaining skills of empowerment and communication

Noticing, valuing, and trusting yourself. This means having the courage to ask for what you want, and feeling safe enough to receive. And being able to both say and hear Yes & No

Understanding the dynamics of giving and receiving, and taking them apart

• Understanding who is doing and who it is for, because they are different

• Waking up sensuality – feeling and following pleasure, because it's healing and we are worthy


Why is this important?

Consent is an art that is way more fun than you think, and is the key to relational freedom. It brings clarity, ease, freedom, joy, pleasure and spirituality to all our relationships. Many people take this workshop to enhance their personal lives. The Wheel of Consent® is great for that! What surprises many is how much it affects the rest of life too. It turns out to be a foundational practice for all human relating! Wow!

There is 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.

Setting appropriate boundaries is not always straightforward or easy to do. What would it be like to be gentle, clear and respectful – as you ask for what you want? What would it be like to feel comfortable saying No or setting a limit, and doing so with clarity and grace?

About participation:

While there are many opportunities for exchanging non-sexual touch with others during this retreat, you do not need to touch anyone. This is NOT a sexual workshop; it is fully clothed. You may choose to exchange touch for the purpose of learning, or you may choose to participate through observation. You are always empowered with choice and voice, and may change your mind as many times as you wish.
