Betty Martin and Marcia Baczynski and have been learning and teaching consent together for over 16 years. They met through Cuddle Party (a consent workshop) and cheered each other on in the development of their own work – Betty’s Wheel of Consent, and Marcia’s Asking for What You Want. And now they have written their own books, which they will read from!
Marcia’s Creating Consent Culture simply and clearly describes what consent is, including clarifying some misconceptions, and outlines a 3 hour workshop for youth and teens. Co-authored with Erica Scott.
Betty’s The Art of Receiving and Giving: the Wheel of Consent re-defines receiving and giving and shows you how to fall in love with both of them, completely and equally. The Wheel of Consent has been called the most important and cutting-edge model for these times.
Together these two insightful books open up new understandings of consent, how to use it, and what it makes possible in your life.
In some cities, they will read and lead discussions.
In some cities they will join forces for an 8-hour workshop exploring the nuances of consent, as two of the foremost experts in the field. Using a combination of embodied practice, fun games, discussion and Q&A, this workshop promises to be powerful, playful and full of insight and laughter.
