The ‘Exploring Intimate Touch‘ workshop is for men who enjoy sex and intimacy with other men. It is an opportunity to gather together and take a step into deeper understanding of our erotic, playful and sensual body. Exploring ‘Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent’ we will learn how the hidden dynamics of touch, when unlocked and brought into consciousness can bring powerful insights. Connecting us to our deeper qualities of gratitude, surrender, integrity and being of service to another. When left hidden away, touch can become unconscious, disembodied and even harmful.
During this two-day workshop we will take time to immerse ourselves into the four dynamics of touch; Giving, Taking, Allowing and Receiving. Together we’ll create a safe and boundaried space to work on each other’s bodies and become more skilled at the rich and juicy qualities held within each of these dynamics. We’ll gain a greater understanding of how consent, or the lack of consent always changes our experience of touch.
During this workshop you will begin to:
– Learn how to recognise your boundaries and work within consent.
– Have a deeper understanding of the dynamics of different types of touch.
– Bring new ways of connecting to existing relationships.
– Develop a strong presence in your touch.
– Heal some of the old shameful stories we tell ourselves about our body shape, genitals and erections.
After participating in this workshop you will have a fresh, new, way of bringing touch into your world.
This workshop will primarily be unclothed. There will be full body touch and we will work in the large group, in pairs and individually. It is important that you are able to sit on the floor for extended periods of time with both hands free for touch sessions.
