The Art of Touch and Choice

Foundations of Enhanced Pleasure

You are invited to join an exploration into a system of engagement 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.

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 and give permission for your own physical joy and pleasure, and learn 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 helps you to remember that your pleasure is your birthright. This training 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!

What some previous participants have to say after participating in this training: 

Ross, UK:

Lisa is a genuine and caring person which makes her an excellent teacher; always going above and beyond to help and to make sure people in her groups and workshops feel safe.  She is passionate and enthusiastic about this work. She always listens exactly to what the members need and is there to help first and foremost.

I have found working with Lisa invaluable.  It has helped me realise how hard I find it to say “no” and, furthermore, to even know what it is I want.  However, thanks to Lisa and her embodiment of the teachings of Somatic Consent, I have a new direction with which I can develop and lead a more satisfying and peaceful life.

 Dawn, UK:

Working with Lisa has been so transformational, the consent work especially. Understanding how to work with your body and not to ignore its subtle signs. If it’s not a completed yes it’s a no – has been some of the most profound wisdom and I use it day to day to make decisions.

Thank you Lisa for all your work from the bottom of my heart!

 Karen, UK:

I have experienced the work Lisa offers on Somatic Consent both in a workshop setting and one-to-one. She holds a warm, safe and inclusive space whilst supporting and encouraging participants to open to curiosity and exploration.

I would highly recommend working with Lisa. In a gentle and non-judgmental way, she guides participants to listen deeply to their inner voice and connect deeply to their inner knowing in order to find their absolute ‘yes’ or absolute ‘no’.

From day one, I started to apply the principles I had learned in my everyday life. The work has helped myself and my partner to explore what gives us pleasure and to open to greater intimacy with each other. I have also found the teachings beneficial in non-intimate settings i.e. I’m far more able to witness and acknowledge when something feels like a ‘no’ to me when previously I would have over-ridden or invalidated my feelings.

Mark, UK:

After attending Lisa’s workshop I was very impressed with how she was able to guide us in a gentle and loving way to both understand and experience my deeper seated beliefs around connection with myself, others and the world I live in.

I felt engaged, inspired and expanded by the time we finished and can only say that if anyone were to have the chance to work with Lisa and experience her work, they’d be very fortunate.

Thank you for your work and total dedication of assisting people on this journey of self-discovery Lisa!
