Who is it for?

This is for you if you are wanting to learn how to improve your relationships with your self and others through learning your dynamics of giving and receiving touch through the embodied experience of Betty Martin's Wheel of Consent teachings.

The workshop is clothed and you will never be asked to touch or be touched by anyone you do not want to be.

  • In any instance of touch, are you giving or receiving? How can you tell?

  • How do you know what you want when it comes to touch?

  • How do you ask for it?

  • How do you negotiate so that you can clearly articulate what you want and do not want - from moment to moment?

This workshop will guide you to discover how to trust your body, including but not limited to, when you want to be touched and how to discover and negotiate how you might want to touch another.

You will learn the neurobiology of your body's responses to stress which leads to reduced trust in giving and receiving and how to increase your receptivity to pleasure and relaxation.

This is an embodied learning environment were you will learn through your body.

The workshop is clothed and you will never be asked to touch or be touched by anyone you do not want to be.

About Part 2 October 28-29 (pre-requisite: Part 1, Like a Pro or The Wheel of Consent workshop).

For October 26-29 in Glastonbury, we have extended this event from 2 days to four - you can choose to attend for Parts 1 & 2 or if you have taken the workshop previously, or Like a Pro with Betty Martin, you may arrive for Part 2.

We have both taken Like a Pro 5 times so far and been involved with playing and practising the quadrants in many other ways. Every time is fresh and there are always revelations and realisations. The Wheel of Consent is not a concept that you “get” but a practice. These four days are an opportunity to immerse your self in the practice and the enquiry of how it is for you to be in the different quadrants.

What does being “advanced” mean???

Some people imagine that genital touch is more advanced than non-genital touch for example. However, as Betty Martin and Kimberley Ann Johnson have articulated beautifully, what makes something advanced is not the activity, it is you - your ability to navigate your yes and your no in every moment.

The advanced class is not about where we touch but about how authentic can you be in your yes and your no in every moment, whatever it is you are choosing to do or not do.

International / transport

There are some direct trains to Dawlish from London Paddington (3-3.5 hours travel time) as well as from Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester. UK train times can be checked and booked here.

If you are travelling from Amsterdam, Ireland, Paris or parts of Spain the closest airport is Exeter. There is one bus stop, buses 56 & 56b make the 25 minute journey from Exeter Airport to Exeter St David station, from where it is a 20 train journey to Dawlish (note: not Dawlish Warren!). You can look at train times here and bus journeys here.

For most European travellers the closest airport is Bristol. There is a bus to Bristol Parkway station then a 90-120 minute train journey.

Transcontinental participants will probably fly to London in which case London Heathrow is about 30 minutes closer than London Gatwick.
