The Art of Receiving and Giving One Day Workshop (CANCELLED)

The Art of Receiving and Giving One Day Workshop (CANCELLED)

This is a 1-day intro workshop on the Wheel of Consent®. The Wheel of Consent® is for people who want to create better relationships, feel more pleasure and joy, develop greater self-confidence to deliver stronger and more effective boundaries, and enjoy meaningful, respectful, and fulfilling experiences with everyone in their life. It is not about techniques or rules but rather a solid theoretical framework and embodied practice to empower your nervous system and develop lifelong skills.

The Wheel of Consent® is like yoga for human relating, intimacy, and connection! Developed by Betty Martin, the Wheel of Consent®  is a framework and practice that supports you to develop an inner compass to understand and navigate tricky and confusing interactions with others.

Have you ever:

  • gone along with what someone else wants when you did not really want to?
  • been confused about overstepping someone else boundaries?
  • felt icky about the touch that was being done to you?
  • felt obligated to give back when you have received?
  • been unable to ask for what you really wanted and instead settled for less or went without?

The Wheel of Consent® clarifies all these scenarios and more and supports you to develop strong and consistent ways of interacting that feel good for everyone involved. Human interactions have the potential to contain wholehearted gifts and the Wheel of Consent® teaches you the art of receiving and giving those gifts without fear, guilt, resentment, or burn-out. The Wheel of Consent® can teach you to feel more empowered in your yes and no, increase awareness in your body around boundaries, wants, and limits, enhance effective communication, and increase agency in all interactions. Embodying the Wheel of Consent® is at the core of knowing it and walking away with this embedded in your nervous system is the most powerful way to apply it and transform your life. It all starts with you and your skin.

Whether you are looking for healing, learning, or improvement, this workshop offers a safe space to self-discover as a natural consequence of playing and experimenting with the activities on offer. Some activities are solo, some can be partnered, and some involve touch within specific parameters. There is NO nudity or sexual touch of any kind in this workshop. This is not a couple’s workshop but if you are in couple, thruple or more you are welcome to play together, or not, depending on what you decide between you. The content is non-gendered and the space is LGBTQ+ inclusive. There will be lots of options to engage with the material in a way that works for you with choice an inherent part of the work and encouraged at all times.

The Wheel of Consent® workshops are a vital part of learning the wheel. Dr Betty Martin who developed The Wheel of Consent® generously shares her work online through and She says, “This is the body of work I have been developing over the last dozen years, which I call the Wheel of Consent. The videos are fine, the ideas are fine – but it’s the experience of it that will change you.”
