How The Wheel of Consent Invites an Ever-Deepening Embodiment for Intimacy, Pleasure and Relationships
How can we learn, re-learn or deepen our body’s sense of safety for receiving the kinds and quality of touch and pleasure we truly desire, whilst expanding its ability to know and ask for what it really wants? Dr. Betty Martin and The Wheel of Consent offers a safe and clear container for this embodied inquiry. Betty shares her journey of how the subtle yet powerful touch distinctions of giving, receiving, taking and allowing evolved, the importance of waking up our hands to receiving pleasure, and her process of distilling and transmitting her depth of knowledge into the newly released “The Art of Receiving and Giving: The Wheel of Consent.”
