Embodied Consent



Sex, intimacy, and play require consent–but have you ever found it hard to know whether you consent, or felt unsure afterwards? In this workshop, participants will be offered tools to learn and recognize what yes, no, and maybe feel like in their bodies. I will offer a simple framework participants can use to make decisions about consent, and to continuously add to their knowledge of what works and feels good for them. My approach is based in mindfulness, curiosity, self-compassion, and self-accountability. While this will be a space where explicit sex talk is welcomed, consent and bodies aren't only about sex, and neither are the skills and activities we'll be working with. If sex is not something that interests you, you may still find this workshop interesting and relevant! Please bring your favourite blanket, hoodie, shawl, or other similar cozy item to put on your body.
