CONNECT TO CONSENT WORKSHOP: Tools To Help Us Discover Our Own Body's Wisdom and Communicate Our Truth
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT? WHEN YOU KNOW, CAN YOU SPEAK IT?
As a professional massage therapist, listening to my clients and their needs is a CRUCIAL part of my job. I have noticed in my work, however, that often times clients do not have the body awareness, communication skills, or simply feel empowered enough to co-create a session with me. Thus, I created this workshop to support and empower people to learn body awareness, communication skills, and emotional literacy. By using what I call "The Consent Timeline," we will practice skills that help us listen to and understand our own physical and emotional experience, so that we can better: communicate with others, set clear and healthy boundaries, and improve the quality of connection in all of our relationships. We will explore as a group a variety of interactive, self-reflective, and collective sharing activities, all to be held in a safe, confidential and supportive container.
PARTICIPANTS WILL WALK AWAY WITH THE FOLLOWING:
- Increased body awareness - Greater ability to identify and communicate feelings and needs clearly - Reflective listening practice and tools - Deeper feelings of connection to self and other - Practice saying "No" and "Yes" from a place of empowerment and truth
A world where people feel deeply aware of and connected to their: emotions, physical bodies, energetics, Earth, and fellow humans. A society that values and rewards programming of social and cultural benefit, and dismantles systems of violence, separation, materialism, and rape culture. A world which measures the vitality of independent art and the creative climate as a barometer for overall societal prosperity. Where individual, collective, and planetary health are seen as imperative to our survival and necessary for all life to thrive.
To provide a variety of interdisciplinary healing experiences that are: enjoyable, affordable, connective and transformational. To increase feelings of connectedness to our; bodies, emotions, creativity, and fellow human beings. Healing happens through a process of: creative expression, body/mind awareness, emotional release, self- reflection, witnessing others/being witnessed, and community support.
