Recent trainings (Like a Pro) have been held in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, Victoria, Devon U.K., Copenhagen, Stockholm, Dublin, Prague, Melbourne and Brisbane.  Like A Pro trainings resume this fall, starting with the West Coast – see below!


Like A Pro alumni Monthly Salon

First Tuesdays of each month: 9:30 AM Pacific time

For all who have completed Like A Pro, an open forum to share how you’ve been experimenting with teaching and using the Wheel of Consent. Free. Remaining: Aug 1, Sept 5, Oct 3, Nov 7, Dec 5.


Seattle WA

August 5 – The Gift of Touch – Receiving, Giving, Taking, Allowing ~ When you touch your partner or friend, is it for them or for you? Does it matter? What happens when you know for sure? Come find out! The Wheel of Consent, from its originator (me)!

August 6 – Ritual Play ~ What if, in every interaction, you could be responsively honest, in-the-moment and loving? Or what if you just had a place to learn that and play with it?  Ritual Play is a paired, timed, non-verbal practice that teaches you how to do that. Oh yeah – and is wa-a-a-y fun!

These two workshops can each be taken separately, but the best is both of them (for which there is a significant discount).
