Consent work is liberation work. It’s a method of fighting all systems of oppression that work through us, starting with ourselves. Having a strong consent practice is a path to healing, a path to abolition, and a path to collective growth.
Are you feeling burnt out by the constant need to create, advocate for yourself and your friends, and communicate and hold your boundaries? Are you running into the same recurring kinds of conflict? Are you struggling to start stuff that you're pretty sure you actually want to do? Are you looking for a community of people who also want to do these things so they can have more easeful and aligned relationships in work, play, and romance? Come build a consent practice with me so you can move through the world with a strong internal sense of safety that allows you to explore.
This course will support artists, healers, practitioners, activists, organizers, and self-employed folks who feel burnt out by their work. In order to play, explore, and be creative we have to feel safe. Consent work can give you the internal sense of safety that allows you to move through the world with less friction, find flow, and express yourself creatively.
- You’ll learn vocab that will help you express yourself more clearly.
- You’ll learn to feel your boundaries and communicate them.
- You’ll practice saying ‘no.’
- You’ll begin to feel your capacity and not go beyond it.
- You’ll learn breathing techniques and practice exercises that you can share with others.
I’m a consent educator, writer, speaker, podcaster, creative and certified Intimacy Coordinator for TV + Film. After spending ten years in New York working in theater and visual art, I returned to my hometown of Los Angeles in 2018. My BA in Philosophy, and my academic background in gender studies, ethics, and neuroscience informs my work. My practice is my own. I found the magic of consent through working with and training in various modalities including Non-Violent Communication, multiple consent frameworks, somatic work, and intimacy coordination. I’ve developed a holistic and embodied approach to consent that takes into account the gut-brain axis, polyvagal theory, trauma, and neurodiversity. I am not a mental health professional.
