Dr. Betty Martin has had her hands on people professionally for over 40 years, first as a Chiropractor and upon retiring from that practice, as a certified Surrogate Partner, Sacred Intimate, and Somatic Sex Educator. Her explorations in somatic-based therapy and practices informed her creation of the framework, The Wheel of Consent®.
As part of her work with The School of Consent, Betty travels around the world teaching practitioners how to create empowered agreements in their client sessions, in her highly sought-after training “Like A Pro: The Wheel of Consent for Practitioners.”
Originally developed as an offering to teach much-needed consent skills to sex workers and touch providers, this training on the wheel of consent is now attended by somatic therapists, massage therapists, sexuality educators, medical and health care workers, activists, human resources folks and the spectrum of touch-based professional providers – all of whom complete the training with a clear understanding of how consent starts with our own bodies, and then expands outwards into all forms of human relating, with or without touch.
Dr. Kate and Dr. Betty talk about the 3 Minute Game: What do you want me to do to you and What do you want to do to me, which uncovers so much, including how detached we are from knowing what we really want and what we are truly comfortable with.
We learn that until we get in touch with what we want, it is difficult to give and receive authentically.
And until that, we are potentially giving and receiving but actually getting resentful and angry, as it is “acting” as if it is all good.
Learn tools like the Wheel of Consent to discover more about yourself and your sexual or non-sexual giving and receiving with a partner, co-worker, client, etc. It can be a most beautiful
