The Art of Being a Gift

Tools for Mastering the Terrain of Pleasure, Desire & Consent

What is Somatic Consent?

Somatic Consent is an engagement system in which we learn to drop into our sensory inflow while we are in action. This brings us into connection with our sensations and feelings in a transformative way. It provides a neurological upgrade of our emotional intelligence, somatic capacity, and ability to feel and be. The end result is a transformative container for the benefit of all involved.

The end of pleasing to belong - no request, no action.

Why Somatic Consent?

The Human Need for Intimacy

As human beings, we all need intimacy. We all want meaningful connection with those that are dear to us. But how many of us are actually keeping ourselves from this because of our conditioned ways of relating?

Our Programmed Beliefs

We all needed to develop unconscious survival strategies in order to belong. 

Most of us have the neurological patterning that “I do something to make you feel happy, so that you love me and I will belong”. We have taught ourselves that our actions are about giving for the sake of others and that receiving through our own action only manifests as shadow, violation, or abuse. But what if the opposite was true?

The Pathway to Freedom

Somatic Consent offers us engagement tools to confront our own discomfort, break our old patterns, and learn how to respond to the world around us in authentic ways. It helps us establish the organic balance between desire and boundaries. We learn how to ask for what we really want, and how to go into an authentic action for our own benefit while respecting the limits of the others.
