Episode details

Welcome to a world of collaboration, consent, intimacy and deep rich relationships based on trust!

Erica Scott is a consent educator working hard to make consent culture a reality. I feel honored to share our converstaion with you. The book launch begins January 21, 2022, so I am going to make our show notes short this week, in order to get this episode out in time.

We discuss the collaboration in consent, the reason a “gatekeeper” relationship limits us, the possibilities that unfold when relationships are interwoven with collaboration and consent.

At the 42:00 mark, Erica gives a gorgeous explanation of the freeze response — there’s a hint of a trigger warning here, but the gist is a wonderfully positive description of what the freeze response looks and feels like — a rare gift.

Thanks, and take care of yourself and at least one other person this week! <= I heard that in another podcsast…maybe Mike Birbiglia’s Working It Out?

Underbelly Project began in November 2019 when, frustrated by certain aspects of modern culture, I began to daydream a world I wanted to be a part of. And, as one does (does one?), I began searching domain names that expressed my intention.

{Quick Note: domain names are like poetry, aren’t they?}

Underbel.li was born — literally from my underbelly. My deepest, most vulnerable, unspoken desire for what I want to see more of in the world.

Because these desires answer the question Mary Oliver asked: “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” I began naming the stuff that was born from Underbelly “Wild + Precious”
