NB - All our 'in person' workshops are dependent on the coronavirus crisis. We have booked provisional dates with venues in June, September and October, which will be confirmed or otherwise nearer the time. If you sign up to our newsletter we will keep you posted.
In the meantime, we are now offering an online workshop: 'Consent and the Nervous System - Self-Care and Community Resilience in the age of COVID-10'. See details here.
Payments are 100% refundable with two weeks' notice. After that we can only refund you if we are able to fill your space. In the event that we need to cancel the workshop, you will be offered a choice of a full refund or deferring your booking to a future workshop.
If you prefer, we also run a 'touchless' version of this workshop in which there is no opportunity for shared touch with other participants.
Our workshops cover a wide range of material and can be presented in a variety of formats. Contact us to join our mailing list and we'll keep you informed of all the events we're running.
Alternatively, we can present a workshop at your event or organisation. We'll teach you to get really good at consent, so life can become richer, more authentic and more enjoyable for everyone.
What is the Wheel of Consent?
Dr. Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent is a cutting edge model of consent based on, but not requiring, exchanges of touch. It 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
