What happens in a ConsentLab?
A confidential space – What happens in the ConsentLab stays in the ConsentLab.
We start with an introduction and consent games which are a playful way to get know each other, and yourself. In preparation for the Lab, participants explore the consent dynamics and communication tools for expressing desires and limits.
In the Lab itself, we practise making real requests. This anchors an understanding of the power of desire and 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.
Bas my co-facilitator and I am there to support you throughout the workshop.
For example, if you would like to dance and be observed in a breakout room for 3 minutes, you express your desire and make a request to the person of your choice: “may I dance while you watch for 3 minutes?” If the other person is willing to do so, you both go to a breakout room and carry out the agreement. After the agreed time is over, you both come back to the main room and continue to make or receive requests.
We complete the workshop with a closing for people to reflect on the experience and talk about what they discovered about themselves.
Saturday the 25th of February 7.30-9.30 GMT.
We will send you a zoom link before the event.
