The Art of Giving and Receiving

A deep dive into relating, authenticity, boundaries and Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent.

We run workshops in London, online and across the UK.Next workshop dates

When we engage with others, whether it is a family member, friend, colleague or romantic partner – are we doing what they want us to do, or what they allow us to do?

 

What is the difference and why does it matter?

At this weekend workshop, we will learn the Wheel of Consent, a powerful tool to help us understand the unseen dynamics which guide the ways we relate to each other. 

We will learn to make clear agreements and get in touch with what we want and how to ask for it so we can create satisfying connections with ourselves, partners, family members and colleagues.

This Workshop is about 

  • Gaining skills of empowerment and communication – noticing, valuing, and trusting desires, having the courage to ask for what we want, and feeling safe enough to receive 
  • Waking up our ability to feel and notice what we want 
  • Making choices – learning how to choose for ourselves
  • Understanding the dynamics of Receiving and Giving and taking them apart 
  • Understanding who is doing and who it is for – because they are different

Four kinds of relating within clear agreements

Taking 

for our own benefit – doing what we want – while respecting the giver’s boundaries

Allowing 

another to take from us – they do what they want with our permission – while maintaining our boundaries

Serving

another for their benefit – we do what they want – within our boundaries

Accepting

the gift of another’s service – they do what we want – while maintaining their boundaries

 
Unless you take apart and experience each of these four aspects, it is impossible to know what they really are.

 

 
Understanding and embodying the Wheel of Consent happens best through a somatic experience – you have to feel it in your skin. Therefore, learning the Wheel happens through touch exercises.
 

Over 2 days we will

  • Learn what ‘Receiving’ and ‘Giving’ really are – and why knowing the difference is crucial for creating authentic connection and intimacy
  • Find out where we are clear (or not) in Receiving and Giving
  • Learn the framework of the Wheel of Consent® and the four Quadrants as a foundation for connection
  • Experience pleasure and sensation in your skin that you can access any time you choose
  • Access parts of yourself that have been hidden away that are ready to be seen, appreciated and healed
  • Gain skills to bring awareness to your hands so that all your touch is rich and satisfying
  • Become exquisitely aware of your desires and limits and how to communicate them
  • Practice Receiving, Giving and experience each of the four Quadrants
  • There are many opportunities for exchanging touch as part of the learning, but there is no intimate touch and clothing stays on in the workshop. 

Who this is for

  • Learn how to give and receive more satisfying touch

About your facilitator

Adam Wilder is a connection and boundaires coach, comedian, and founder of the Togetherness movement.

He is an experienced facilitator, trained counsellor and has studied multiple modalities including the Diamond Approach, Circling, Authentic Relating and clowning. 

Adam has a natural gift for using humour and his own authenticity to create warm and inviting spaces that support people to let go of old ways of being to stay sovereign and discover new parts of themselves, enabling nourishing and transformative connections for individuals, teams, and organisations.

Adam is currently training to become a certified facilitator of the Wheel of Consent.

Shaun

This course has taught me to respect my boundaries and those of others. I also feel that I have been seen truly and deeply like I have never been seen before.

Emma

This course has taught me the importance of recognising feelings, accepting that I have choices and above all that I can just say no. I loved Adam’s facilitation and voice. I already notice that I am happier and less angry/resentful.

Karin

Working with Adam has helped me to dare to ask for what I want, and shown me I am not alone.
