Katie Spataro

I am a somatic sex educator, doula and certified facilitator of the Wheel of Consent, practicing on the unceded lands of the Duwamish people otherwise known as Seattle. I study and practice at the intersections of birth work and sex work, drawing upon the embodied wisdom of these two lineages to support healing of the personal and collective cultural body. I'm continually struck by how a somatic learning of consent offers a transformative experience. I'm really excited to be a part of this learning journey with you!

and Corinne Diachuk

.I am a mother, partner, lover, fierce friend, Yoga TherapistSomatic Sex Educator, lifelong erotic adventurer, and a survivor of sexualized violence. I live on the un-ceded territory of the Coast Salish First Nations peoples, colonially known as Victoria BC. I am passionate about creating safe enough spaces for folks to have conversations with their bodies about pleasure, and offering practical tools for negotiating consent from this empowered place. I have a dream, that the healing work we are doing here and now in our bodies, we can send down into the earth to the ancestors of this land, and we can send forward to future generations in peace and reconciliation

Some words from our past students:

– Kendra Hamilton, Vancouver

“This workshop offers a deep dive into a topic I believe has been overly simplified in media and mainstream culture. I so appreciate having the knowledge and skill to approach consent in a novel dynamic and influential way. Many thanks to Corinne and Katie and Betty for their genius and effort.”

-Nicolas Revals - San Diago

"A weekend spent with Corinne Diachuk, Katie Spataro and the Wheel of Consent is essential for people who want to dedicate themselves to somatic sex education or sexological bodywork. They are, first of all, perfectly matched to engage with people who have diverse learning styles, making sure that everyone in the group feels welcome, has fun and learns a lot. But they also approach the four quadrants of the wheel in a way that evolves beautifully and naturally for all the participants so that by the end of the workshop you're well versed in the meaning of touch and able to hone in on the most valuable learning of the experience: "who is this touch for?" In my own somatic sex education practice, I begin every client session with exercises, games and experiences based on the Wheel, Corinne's and Katie's core work. That work has proved to be deeply meaningful for me, my clients and even my lovers as I have applied these learnings to the practice of human touch in my life."
