Get in Touch With Yourself Aug 2017 @ Nr Chorlton Metrolink Station. Location details will be provided on sign up. | Manchester | England | United Kingdom

In this workshop we will work with platonic touch in a safe and nurturing obligation free environment which supports you to connect with yourself and others from a heart opened space.  Being able to connect with touch without sexualising it allows us to go back to a state of innocence and bliss of just being in our bodies.  In addition this allows us to learn about what is there for us in our relationship dynamics.  The environment that we work with is one of open-heartedness, fun and healing.

The workshop starts by working with boundaries (ours and yours) to promote confidence and allow you to authentically connect with what feels right for you and what touch you want or don’t want from others.  You will also have the opportunity to experience touch which you might not otherwise be able to have in a safe platonic obligation free environment, and to connect with the art of receiving.  There will be further opportunites to ask for other touch that you want.  This can be anything from a hand or a foot massage, a back rub or a cuddle, as long as it is within the boundaries of the others and the rules of the workshop.  Throughout the exercises you will be guided and supported to connect with yourself.

This workshop will be useful for those who want to learn to:

• Work with their boundaries

• Say “No,” without guilt

• Find their “Yes!”

• Connect with what they want and ask for it

• Obtain the benefits of platonic touch

• Improve their communications and social skills

• Build their confidence

• Be able to receive

• Work with self-acceptance

Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development. It is also critical for our mental and social development.  We will work with the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection.  Did you know that it’s a proven fact that just twenty seconds of physical contact can lift your mood for the whole day as it releases oxytocin?  Find out more about oxytocin and its potential healing power here .

Our aim is to leave you feeling relaxed, empowered, with your heart opened and soul nurtured.

We will do our best to gender balance this workshop but we cannot absolutely guarantee it.

This is a pre-book event only.

The doors will open at 1.00 pm with an opportunity to meet your fellow participants over non-alcoholic drinks downstairs in the bar. The workshop proper will start at 1.30 pm after which there will be no admittance.

Alternatively if you want to arrive for 12:30 pm and join us to eat at the bar at the venue, then message us and we will reserve a table for those who want to attend.

The experiential elements will include working with breath, movement, sound, eye and some gentle physical contact. You will be supported throughout in connecting with your boundaries and to use them in meeting the other attendees from an embodied heart-felt space. Our aim at the end of the day is for you to take away some practices and learnings into the outside world.

Conscious Touch Day – Wheel of Consent Day & Conscious Cuddles – Manchester @ The Wonder Inn
Oct 8 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 pm
We are delighted to be bringing to Manchester two wonderful experiential workshops that we have run successfully elsewhere which, when combined together make them even more powerful. You are very welcome to attend both but if you prefer you can attend each as a standalone workshop and still get a lot from them.
 
During the day (9:30am-5:30pm) we are running our Wheel of Consent workshop: Tell Me What You Want What You Really, Really Want. In this workshop you will learn about how you relate to others in a clear way through the medium of platonic touch, which will allow you to explore, understand and express your authentic consent with clear communication. We devised this workshop together with the originator of the Wheel of Consent, Dr Betty Martin (www.bettymartin.org).
 
In the evening (6:30pm-10:00pm) we will be running our signature conscious cuddles workshop Get in Touch with Yourself. In it you will experience and explore the benefits of platonic, nurturing touch and, if you attend the workshop earlier in the day, it is a great opportunity to practice and embody all that you have learned.
 
These workshops are:
• Clothed.
• Experiential – you will have the opportunity to practice and explore in a safe environment. It is only within the experience of touch that the Wheel of Consent theory makes sense.
• Respectiful of your boundaries – you never have to touch or be touched by anyone or anywhere you don’t want to. In fact, you will be shown how to be clearer about that for yourself and learn tools that help you to express your boundaries.
• Confidence boosting, allowing you to say “No” and “Yes” without guilt and from a place of integrity.
• Supportive in improving your confidence and to strengthen communication and social skills, particularly in asking for what you truly want.
• Accepting. Allowing you to start wherever you are, whether you are new to the idea or wildly experienced, it doesn’t matter. Wherever you start, you will find a new level of awareness and self acceptance.
• Fun. Giving you games to take home that allow you to play within your boundaries which you can make sensual, playful or any other quality you wish to bring to them.
• Enablers that allow you to receive the benefits of platonic touch – see here for some of these benefits: http://www.sacredlighttantra.com/oxytocin/
 
So come and join us and find out, amongst other things, what you want, what you really, really want!
 
We welcome all genders over the age of 18, any sexual orientation whether you are single or in a relationship. These events have no nudity or intimate touch.
 
This is a pre-book event only.
Registration starts at 9.30 am for a 10.00 am prompt start and finishes at 10.00pm for the combined day/evening.   Also please bring a blanket.
Registration starts at 9.30 am for a 10.00am prompt start for the Wheel of Consent Day.
Registration starts at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm prompt start for the Conscious Cuddles Evening.
 
Our aim is to leave you feeling relaxed, empowered, with your heart opened and soul nurtured.
