WORKSHOPS AT CELEBRATING SEXUALITY
Non-Verbal Communication Touch Ritual
Consensual Touch is a hot-button issue and this workshop gives you the tools to support yourself and others in navigating touch and consent with confidence.
While verbal consent is very useful and important it often fails to address issues that can be better understood and explored non-verbally. While people may have different understandings of other’s words and agreements, we can all be responsible for our own choices when another touches us.
We can also utilise the Touch/Pause/Breathe/Feel/Respond/Notice sensitivity sequence when we feel the desire to touch another. This workshop will help you to transcend fear, guilt and shame around touch as we understand that we all want love, pleasure and safety.
