Wheel of Consent

in-person introductory workshop

This is a 2-3 hour introductory workshop to Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent, in which we will focus on the key teachings of the Wheel:


  • An understanding of the Wheel as a cutting edge communication tool, based around asking the questions: 'Who is doing?' and 'Who is it for?'.  This creates four dynamics or quadrants of experience, each of which has a different flavour, and requires a different type of consent agreement

  • A solo practice called ‘Waking the Hands’  which enables us to bring more awareness to our own sense of touch, and the feelings and embodied responses which arise from it.

Who is this workshop for?

  • Anyone wanting to learn methods for clearer communication in all areas of life.

  • Anyone interested in techniques for self-regulating the nervous system.

  • Anyone who would like to take part in our 'level 2' workshops who has not yet done a workshop in the Wheel of Consent.

  • Anyone who would like to learn about the Wheel of Consent in a setting where there will be no shared touch.

What is the Wheel of Consent?
Dr. Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent is a cutting edge model of consent which distinguishes between the ‘doing’ aspect of an interaction - who is doing; and the ‘gift’ aspect - who it is for. This creates four dynamics or quadrants of experience, which occur all the time in human relating, and are of particular importance when we interact physically.  


The Wheel is also an embodied practice, which uses breath and awareness to bring us into a deeper noticing of our feelings and our bodily impulses.


Our workshops last anything from 1 hour to 3 days.  Please contact us to find out more
