About the event

Whether you’re single, dating or in a relationship, if you desire to thrive in life this workshop is for you!

Connection and relating rely on consent and communication. But..…

– Have you ever found it difficult to express yourself?

– Do you ever feel stuck or frozen when it comes to expressing your needs and desires, or asking others about their needs and desires?

– Do you find it hard to have the conversations you know you need to have for the level of relationship, connection, and understanding you truly desire?

– Have you ever found it difficult knowing whether you want to say yes or no, or felt unsure whether you or the other person, were consenting during or afterwards?

Welcome to the How to Be Humn Series. This is the first workshop of many designed to showcase tools and practices that when implemented can support living a happy and fulfilling life. Covering topics from conscious relating to holistic health and wellness and all in between we are excited to share the knowledge that has helped us in our journey to becoming better humans, for ourselves and the planet.

We use the power of intention, journaling, breathwork and meditation alongside practical exercises run by experts in their field to guide your upleveling process in life. All to help you build more self-awareness and compassion for yourself and all others.

In this workshop, participants will be offered Somatic (body awareness) tools to explore. Participants will work with a simple framework to practice making embodied decisions and express themselves confidently and comfortably. Participants will be empowered in feeling and embodying what works and feels good within their body.

We anchor this work in curiosity, compassion, and self-accountability.

This workshop shines a light on what’s missing within dating and relationships to create new levels of understanding, communication and pathways to fulfilling and empowered connection.

In this workshop we’ll explore:

– Embodiment

– Conscious relating and dating

– Full body consent – Enthusiastic “Yes” and “No”

– The importance of Desire

– Embody the Wheel Of Consent – Give/Receive Take/Allow

– Embody the skills needed to express your needs and desires

– Empowered communication

– Understanding yourself and others

– Somatic Practices for meaningful connection,

– Somatic Practices to recalibrate relationship dynamics

– Somatic Practices to heal Co-dependency

– How exchanges affect the biology of the body – hormones/health

– Embracing “Flow” and “Structure/Ritual”

This will be a space where talking about sex is welcomed, however, embodied consent and empowerment are not only about sex, and neither are the skills and activities we’ll be working with.
