What is a ConsentLab?

ConsentLab is an experiential play/workshop to practise the dynamics taught in Somatic Consent.  The evening starts with an introduction and consent games, which leads into the Lab itself; a guided circle structure where people make requests based on consent and agreements. You will learn:

* Communication tools
* Consent skills
* Asking for what you want
* Making clear requests
* Being seen in your desire
* Creating agreements
* Tuning into your authentic ‘yes’ and ‘no’
* Speaking up for your limits and boundaries

What happens in a ConsentLab?

The introduction is a playful and fun way to get to know each other. In preparation for the Lab, participants learn about consent and communication tools for expressing limits and desires.

In the Lab itself, we sit in a circle and practice making real requests. This anchors an understanding of the power of desire and the value of limits when making agreements. It is important that everyone takes responsibility for themselves, both in making a request and responding to a request.

For example, if you would like to receive a back massage for 10 minutes, you express your desire and make a request to a person of your choice: “will you massage my back for 10 minutes?” If the other person is willing to do so, you both go to the side of the circle and carry out the agreement, not more than that, but maybe less if one of you chooses to. After the agreed time is over, you both come back to the circle and continue to make or receive requests.

We complete the workshop with a closing circle for people to reflect on the experience and talk about what they discovered about themselves.

Who is the ConsentLab for?

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in learning more about themselves and improving the quality of their communication in relationships – personal or professional, with lovers, friends, parents, children or colleagues. No prior experience is necessary, and all genders and sexual orientations are welcome. This workshop is also a practice space for anyone who has previously participated in a Somatic Consent foundations workshop like “The Art of Choice and Touch” or “Foundations of Somatic Consent”, or anyone who has started a journey into practising the art of embodying consent.

This is a safe and confidential space. Nobody has to participate in anything, but you do have to be okay with others following their own desires in a consensual way. For those who choose to participate and respond positively to a request, they will be able to do so from an empowered place.

But most importantly, you come to be you and to learn that you get to choose how, when and where you engage – maybe even not at all.

Self Connection and Pleasure Ceremony

For many of us self pleasure equals a certain way we touch ourselves, commonly with some sort of goal. You are not listening to what your body really wants moment to moment and more focussed on what you think you should be doing or experiencing. 

Being stuck in this loop you miss out on a buffet of exquisite experiences available to you in every moment. Most of us have forgot how to access these, but the good news is that your body remembers so you can reconnect. This really changes everything!


Connection, Consent and Choice

This is a part-workshop, part-holiday, part-community experience at Kalikalos community, located in the natural paradise of Greece’s Pelion Peninsula.

‘Simplicity in nature,’ the Kalikalos centre is nestled in a wild chestnut forest surrounded by magnificent nature and just a short drive from beaches with crystal turquoise waters.
With the mountains, sea and lush green landscape around us, nature will support us in dropping more deeply into connection with ourselves.

When we awaken our senses, we awaken our capacity to feel and experience sensuality and life.
