Wheel of Consent - Regan Pryor

Become aware of the energy dynamics when you meet someone and have an interaction. Who is taking, who is allowing, who is serving and accepting. These dynamics occur in every personal interaction and can be measured with the Wheel of Consent model created by Betty Martin. Explore gratitude, surrender, generosity, and integrity.

Foundational work in tantra, bringing to presence the energy and action dynamics of interactions. Who is giving to whom and for who’s pleasure is this being done. Is anyone taking?, and this must mean someone is allowing. Discovering the pleasure zone - the place where two people meet and make the most from a connection; an encounter that truly fulfils and does not leave feelings of resentment or depletion.

Suitable for: adults only

Duration: 90 minutes

Presenter: Regan Pryor


Regan is a passionate facilitator of people meeting their potential through discovering their edges in a safe way. He has been a facilitator for 15 years now, starting in Permaculture, then 5 years in youth development work in the outdoors, loving mens work with Mankind Project and mens circles at Prana.

Regan is an ISTA faculty member, International School of Temple Arts, an organism that is taking Tantra and conscious sexuality to many parts of the world. He has been organising their events with Ellie Wilde in New Zealand for the last 4 years.
