Peripheral Intuitions presents: Workshop: Introduction to the Wheel of Consent with Kiri de Bruin
In #metoo era, consent and boundaries seem to be more relevant and important than ever. However consent is not just about sexuality. Every time an interaction or action does not feel right, it is not in consent with yourself and / or with the other. Consent is about knowing what you need, what you want, what you don't like, what your boundaries are and being able to communicate clearly and openly about it. The Wheel of Consent is a model developed by Betty Martin. It offers simple, playful and in-depth tools for learning to choose, communicate, receive and give. This not only affects your relationship (and your sex life), but your entire life, with all the interactions you encounter in it. And then there’s Ecstatic Dance, which is all about enjoying movement, freeing your mind and connecting with yourself and others. How do you create a clean and safe space and how do you set your boundaries without talking or recognize boundaries of others? In this workshop we combine the Wheel of Consent and experiences from Ecstatic Dance and explore how to make healthy choices from within through communication, coordination and touch. You learn to create a safe space of integrity and express yourself in what you want and do not want. Who wants what, who’s doing what and for whom is it? Feel the difference when you ask ‘how do you want me to touch you’ (give) and ‘how do you want to touch me’ (take). You will discover how sexy boundaries can be, and how much clarity and relaxation it gives to relate to others with consent, to feel your authenticity and own inner truth.
