Follow what truly brings you pleasure, and it will naturally expand
One of my passions is The Wheel of Consent, a tool developed by Dr. Betty Martin, which explores the nuances of consent as an ongoing agreement that actively inquires into and supports authentic expression and mutual understanding for everyone involved. I'm currently a facilitator-in-training for this work.
The workshops I offer are an introduction to the Wheel of Consent, and include a blend of theory, experiential practices, and self-reflection. Topics covered include noticing our desires and limits, a simple practice for increasing access to sensation and pleasure, asking for what we want, creating clear agreements, and discerning between 'giving' and 'doing'.
I offer workshops in Nelson, BC throughout the year. Join my mailing list to be notified of upcoming workshops, or reach out to me directly to discuss hosting a workshop in your community. I am also available for individual sessions.
What is the Wheel of Consent?
The Wheel of Consent is a simple yet profound concept that distinguishes who is doing the action and who the action is for. It emerged from a body-based practice, yet is applicable in all areas of life - from intimate relationships to workplaces to broader societal movements.
The Wheel understands consent as a dynamic, ongoing agreement that at its core requires each person involved to be attuned to, trust, value and express their desires and limits.
My first introduction to Wheel was through the collection of free videos on Betty's website. To really understand it though, it's important to have an embodied experience - which part of why workshops are so great.
