How to ask for what you want: A Wheel of Consent Course
March 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$15 – $250
Why is it so hard to ask for what we want? What gets in our way? How can we learn to know what we want, trust in our own desires, and communicate that to others?
Join us for a 6-week guided practice laboratory to learn skills from the Wheel of Consent®. The Wheel of Consent® is a model of consent based on the idea of consent as an agreement between people, with a clear understanding of who an action is for. This practice allows for a much deeper engagement with understanding our own wants and desires and our boundaries and limits.
At the end of this course, you’ll:
- Have a deeper understanding of how to know what it is you want
- Be able to trust and value your desires
- Better know in your body your authentic “yesses” and “nos”
- Be more awake to the pleasure of touch
- Have some tools to communicate your wants to others
This class meets for 2 hours each Tuesday evening, 5:30pm Pacific Time/8:30pm Eastern Time.
It is co-taught by Sasha Lasdon and Max Pearl, who are both Facilitators-in-Training for the School of Consent.
