Wheel Of Consent

It's not enough to just be calling out sexual predators, we ABSOLUTELY need 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, I'm excited to share it with you.

Kind words from attendees at the Seattle, Wheel of Consent workshop.

A 2-day Workshop

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? 

Many people take this workshop to clarify and enhance their personal or intimate lives. The Wheel of Consent is great for that! What surprises them is how much it affects the rest of their lives too. 

The Wheel of Consent is 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 it’s 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.

The real meaning of ‘Receiving’ and ‘Giving’ become clear – and they are not what you might think they are! You learn to tell them apart, learn when to use each of them, and come to appreciate and enjoy each of them. 

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. 

This Workshop:

~ is clothed.

~ is experiential – you will have the opportunity to practice and explore. 

~ respects your boundaries – you never have to touch anyone you don’t want to. 

~ lets you start right where you are. New to the idea or wildly experienced.

~ gives you a game to take home that makes the whole thing easy, fun, and if you like, sensual and sexy.

~ teaches you the 4 Quadrants – how to create them, find them, feel them, and a glimpse into where they can take you. 

~ is fun!

It’s for people who:

~ are seeking the next level of ease, confidence, and joy
~ love and care for each other, but can’t quite find the key to loving your love life
~ know there is something more meaningful in sex, but have no idea where to start looking for it
~ have been experimenting with Tantra but find it awkward and contrived
~ are not comfortable ‘receiving’ and don’t know why or what to do about it
~ want to have more fun!

This workshop is clothed.
There will be options to exchange touch, but it is never required.
You are quite welcome to watch the entire time if you like.
