About this event

In one weekend, you will change the way you relate to yourself, others and the world.  

After the weekend, you will be invited into the Wheel Head community to practice with others at our exclusive in-person events if you so desire.


Get help with sexuality, touch and intimacy. Find the ease, confidence and sensuality that is your birthright. Learn to apply the Wheel of Consent in relating.


Sharpen your professional skills around consent, boundaries and facilitation. Learn to embody the Wheel of Consent and apply it in your sessions and workshops.


Create contracts and agreements with colleagues, clients, communities and the environment that are in alignment with the values of all parties.


is a model of consent based on, but not requiring, touch.  The Wheel brings ease, sensuality, confidence, self-responsibility and freedom to the touch interaction.  Yet these are touch and non-touch dynamics, and the non-touch dynamics may be of greater import.

Using the Wheel of Consent as a framework, you will learn:

  • Clarity around Receiving and Giving
  • Creating clear agreements 
  • Awareness of sensation in the body
  • Connection, compassion and intimacy

You will be invited to create the world we want to live in, where people are connected to self, others and the earth.

After this workshop, you'll have the tools to practice the Wheel in all aspects of your life.

All genders welcome.

AGREEMENTS Entering this workshop means that we all agree to keep all information about other participants, including their identity, confidential. Our other agreement is that nobody will do anything they do not want to do. We remain fully clothed in this workshop, and genital touch is not allowed. This is a safe learning container.

There are many eateries and food trucks around Austin. Lyft and Uber increase your options. Some participants want to eat lunch together with River at a nearby eatery, which is an option.

LODGING We don’t offer lodging, however there are many great places to stay in Austin.
