Celebrating Pleasure

Dive into Magic Touch & Embodied Consent: Notice, Choose, Say and Play.

Wed, August 21st, 6-8:30pm in Hood River, OR at the HR Foundation of Vibrant Living (formerly the Good Medicine Tea House) @ 1029 May Street. Suggested Donation: $25

In this introduction to the Wheel of Consent® we will start exploring the dynamics of receiving and giving. You will practice noticing what it is you want, learn how to trust yourself and your desires, value your needs and gain the courage to ask for what you want. Please know that there are many ways to participate in this workshop and all touch with others is optional. No prior experience is needed.

There is a tremendous amount of confusion about consent— what it actually is, and how we consciously and unconsciously move in and out of its boundaries.

Setting appropriate boundaries with others, and even with ourselves is not always straightforward or easy. But consent is an art that is way more fun than you think, and is the key to relational and erotic freedom. The more clear you are, the more fun you have.  

What would it be like to be gentle, clear and respectful – as you ask for what you want?

What would it be like to feel comfortable saying No or setting a limit, and doing so with clarity and grace?

What does a HELL YES feel like in your body? And a HELL NO?

Many people take this workshop to clarify and enhance their personal or intimate lives. The Wheel of Consent® is great for that! What surprises many is how much it affects the rest of their lives too. It turns out to describe the fundamental dynamics of most human relating.

The Wheel of Consent® distinguishes between who is ‘doing’ and who it’s for. With this distinction, 4 kinds of touch become possible, opening a rich and varied possibility of experience.


This evening will focus on Noticing, Choosing, Saying and Playing. More specifically, this playshop is about :

  • Waking up sensuality - feeling and following pleasure

  • Making choices - learning how to choose for yourself

  • Connecting with, valuing and trusting yourself and your desires

  • Understanding the dynamics of giving and receiving, and taking them apart

  • Understanding who is doing and who it is for, because they are different

  • Gaining skills of empowerment and communication

  • Having the courage to ask for what you want, and feeling safe enough to receive it



    This practice, combined with gaining clarity around your own and others' boundaries for consensual interactions provides a foundation for ease, sensuality, confidence, self-responsibility, and freedom.

    During this playshop, there will be many opportunities for exchanging touch as part of learning, but no touch is required and it is not a sexual event. Through the choice to participate or not in the touch exercises, you will bring clarity and heart into your hands - so that all your touch and relating is rich, juicy and satisfying.

    No prior experience is necessary. For those who have been exposed to the Wheel, and those who have not, there are always new levels of awareness to be found. All genders and sexual orientations are welcome.

    Join me for an introduction and dive into embodied consent: the key to getting your needs and wishes met, but also to relational integrity and spiritual clarity.
