A panel to discuss queer inclusivity in the sacred sexuality fields and festival and event spaces - a panel of four queer folk considering and sharing around this topic - looking back and moving forward - queer inclusivity from systems, community and individuals.
Consent Workshop (Mandatory)
Eden Festival aims to ensure a consensual space for its participants to explore, play and learn through their unique embodied experiences. Eden provides 2 hour mandatory consent workshops for all people attending the event. Personal sovereignty and self responsibility are essential aspects for safer spaces, which the workshop supports people to practice and embody. Our vision is to offer you the tools to go inward, find your own YES and NO agency, and move forward in your Eden experience in a full HELL YES or NO body experience. These workshops are run by folks that are qualified under Betty Martins - Wheel of Consent model.
