The Wheel of Consent has more to offer than what you might think on first introduction.
The reason the Wheel of Consent works so well is because, as humans, we all have the same potential for connection in our nervous system. When playing the 3 Minute game, where the Wheel of Consent originates, a few hundred times the nervous system learns to relax. We learn that we have a choice about what happens to us, and this is liberating to our nervous system and social conditioning beyond comprehensiveness.
An organic alignment of the social engagement system opens the truth, what we already feel but didn’t have words for. The combination of the Polyvagal Theory and the Wheel of Consent unravels a revolution of connection, intimacy, integrity among lovers, family colleagues friends and peers.

A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is a thousand pictures combined. But nothing can replace the empowering experience of embodying the four quadrants of the Wheel of Consent.
