Event description

Description

Consent as a life skill hasn't been focussed on in any way within our educational systems, nor was it a real consideration in how most of us were raised. It's time now for us to learn more about and incorporate this skill into our daily lives.

This is a one day introduction into developing a deeper understanding of the power and pleasure that comes from being in consent in all aspects of life.

This day will allow you to:

Increase your consent awareness
Become more confident in the power of your Yes and No
Gain awareness of the pleasure and safety of conscious consensual touch
Become clearer on personal boundaries and how to communicate our wants and needs from a place of strength.

Becoming more consent aware is invaluable in all relationships; intimate relationships, friendships, family relationships.

Being consent aware, from ones own perspective and from that of others, is truly an empowering life skill.

This experiential workshop shall support you in feeling more empowered in your choices, improve your capacity to be clear about what you want and don't want, increase your integrity in relationships and also help you give yourself permission to make choices that are right for you.

We will be using the structure of “The Wheel of Consent” created by Betty Martin (www.bettymartin.com) to develop a deeper understanding of how we and others act and react in relationship.

We spend a lot of time in our lives 'going along with things'. It can be a challenge to stop, consider our choices and make the right choice for us in many moments of life. That's really quite normal - our culture embeds the ideal in us from a very early age that we should often accept and allow the decisions, needs and wants of others to take priority and so it can be difficult to break from that and instead be confident in choosing the option that really feels right.

There will be plenty of discussion and exercises throughout the day that will allow you to explore how you have in the past adapted to others and how to instead move forward feeling more in control of your choices, clearer and more confident in asking for what you want, and also more confidently communicating what you don't want.

Please note – Touch can be part of this workshop and is valued as part of the experiential learning.

It is really very important to realise however, that touching anyone else in this workshop is not mandatory. You can participate in this whole training without touching or being touched by anyone. Everything is an invitation and the most important element is self awareness and the ability to choose what feels right for you.

The exercises and discussions throughout this workshop are in fact not only based on touch and they can transfer to every part of your life.

We invite you to come along by yourself or with a partner or friend, the learning is valuable to all so please offer this invitation to explore consent to all those you think would find it useful.

Investment: €80 per person.

Concessionary/sliding scale spaces available for students/those with low income/caregiving professionals, please contact us for more information.

Private coaching sessions for individuals and couples also available upon request.
