A somatic practice for giving and receiving from Cassie
My work with touch is deeply informed by the work of Dr. Betty Martin, and I offer guidance for exploring a touch exercise she teaches in the downloadable PDF below. If you'd like to dive deeper into Betty Martin's work on the Wheel of Consent, this page is a wonderful resource.
The file is an edited excerpt from my e-book for couples, but this exercise can be practiced by any two people who want to explore touch together, and does not require erotic touch. You can explore both giving and receiving touch in the ways that feel like a "yes!" for you. So round up your neighbor, your lover, your housemate, your local touch professional, your friend...and have fun!
