The Art of Choice, Connection, Communication and Consent
The Art of Choice,
Connection, Communication and Consent:
“Foundations of Somatic Consent”
You are invited to join an exploration into a system of engagment which guides you to engage with yourself and others on a richer, deeper level.
Practising the engagement system brings you into connection with your feelings and the sensations derived from your sense of touch in a transformative way.
It provides a neurological upgrade of your cognitive and emotional intelligence, somatic capacity, ability to feel and be authentically you.
This practice is both personal and collective, both scientific and spiritual. It allows you to become present and attentive in a deeper way than ever before. Somatic Consent guides you to consciously connect to yourself, others, and the world you live in. This is truly life changing work.
The Human Need for Intimacy
As human beings, we all need intimacy. We all want meaningful connection with those that are dear to us. But how many of us are actually keeping ourselves from this because of our conditioned ways of relating?
Shadows and Programmed Beliefs
We all developed unconscious survival strategies in order to feel accepted.
Most of us have the neurological patterning that, “I do something to make you feel happy, so that you’ll love me and I’ll belong”.
We’ve been conditioned to believe we’re better people if our actions focus on giving for the sake of others—and that receiving through our own action is connected to selfishness, violation, abuse or other shadow behaviour.
But what if we’re also allowed to go into action for our own benefit—to receive pleasure—and that this isn’t at all selfish but greatly adds to the benefit of all involved?
Communication – The Pathway to Freedom
Somatic Consent offers engagement and communication tools to break old patterns, and learn how to respond to the world around in authentic ways. It helps you to establish the organic balance between desire and boundaries. You learn how to ask for what you really want, and how to go into an authentic action for your own benefit while respecting the limits of others.
Weekend Immersions, and/or
Six-week Ongoing Explorations
The core embodiment of Somatic Consent is making empowered choices and communicating consent.
These foundational teachings will guide you into the base of Somatic Consent, where the main focus will be to activate your hands, improve the quality of your touch, explore consensual touch, and learn how to separate doing from giving and discover deeper layers of receiving. This workshop will teach you how to embody the Somatic Consent Engagement System.
This workshop includes many interactive games and exercises offered to help you learn in an easy, playful, and conscious way. These exercises can then be taken outside of the course structure and applied in your personal or professional life. No prior experience is necessary for this workshop. Both beginners and professionals are welcome, as we can always find new levels of awareness.
What you will learn:
~ The difference between giving and receiving, in relation to who is doing the action
~ How to activate your somatic inflow
~ Follow a step-by-step process for waking up the hands and playing the 3-minute game
~ To gain access to your own physical joy and pleasure, and the ability to take action towards the experience of these states
~ Radical self-ownership and self-responsibility
~ The structure of the Somatic Consent Engagement System, and how to use it in daily life
~ How to enhance all relationships, stop bypassing yourself, and communicate with more awareness and personal responsibility
~ To be present with and communicate vulnerable feelings
~ To stop relating in old survival strategies like manipulations and shadow games, and how to enhance your capacity for authentic connection with friends, partners, lovers, family and colleagues.
Participating in this training is creating the foundational groundwork for an empowering journey into yourself and your personal integrity. It invites a new paradigm in personal choice and ways of authentic relating that will keep deepening as you practice your embodiment of it. As we learn to take radical responsibility for ourselves and what we take action to create in our lives and our relationships, then we can also remember we can have choice in and impact in what we choose to participate in, what we choose to go along with, and what we choose to create in the world at large. This is essential during the current times we are living in!
