Embodied Consent Workshop
Feel What You Want So You Can Ask for What You Want
Many workshops explore the principles of consent or talk about how to improve your ability to communicate your “Yeses and Nos” to partners. Often overlooked is how challenging it is for many of us to really feel our “Yes” and our “No”, our desires, in our bodies. What if you aren’t sure what you want?
In this playful workshop we’ll use interactive, somatic exercises to deepen your connection to your own body and desires. By the end of the workshop you won’t just have more insight into what you want (and what you don’t), but also an increased ability to feel into your “Yes” and your “No “in any situation! You have to be able to feel it before you can communicate it. Get intimate with your nervous system and increase your capacity for pleasure!
We will practice:
· Recognizing what “Yes” and “No” feel like in your body
· Recognizing habitual ways of saying “Yes” and “No” embedded in your nervous system
· Asking for what you want
· Saying “No” to what you don’t want
· Welcoming your lover’s “No”
This workshop is open to people of all genders and sexual orientations. Touch is not required for any of the exercises.
