Consent is a newer word circulating in mainstream and originates from a conversation around sexual contact. However, the cultural shift around consent impacts everything from handshakes to psychedelic spaces. With more and more abuses being reported about entheogen retreats, it is important to develop a personal and community understanding around the nuances of consent and the effects on society.
In this course, we will discuss the major aspects involved in creating a consent culture in your community and get you familiar with the cultural shift a consent focus provides. This is an intro to consent conversations and will cover common questions people have about consent.
What is consent culture and why the old culture wasn’t working.
Where consent affects the psychedelic movement.
When and how to get help with consent violations.
What are the elements of a healthy consent culture?
**Please note that while the focus in not exclusively on sexual consent, it will be covered in a mindful, trauma informed, and sensitive manner.**
