The Art of

Who is doing the action and who is it for?

"Re-wiring our Capacity to Respond"

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 respond. The end result is a container of consent for the benefit of all involved.

"So simple that the mind cannot deny it,
so profound that the heart never will."

~ Matthias Schwenteck ~

This is a practice that is both personal and collective, both scientific and spiritual. It allows us to become present and attentive in a way that is deeper than we have ever experienced before. Through Somatic Consent, we can consciously connect to ourself, others, and the world we live in.

The 4 Pillars of Somatic Consent


Somatic Embodiment of Sensory In-flow

To give others permission to feel us needs the embodied base of being trustworthy to our limits.

Permission Line

We don't need to give anything to touch another person what we need is their permission to feel them.

Agreement Line

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

Interpersonal Being a Gift, Love and Care for Others

Where integrity meets surrender and generosity gratitude.



Permission Line

your action, for you | their action, for them

Agreement Line

your action, for them | Their action, for you

The Pathways to 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 the tools to confront our own discomfort, break our old patterns, and learn how to respond more authentically to the stimulus of the world around us. It teaches us how to ask for permission, and how to go into an authentic action for our own pleasure and receive pleasure in a way that benefits everyone involved.
