#5 Why Being Me is Scary for People with Robert Hensley

In this episode, I get to talk with Robert about so much from the wheel of consent, to body drumming. Yep – body drumming. It is the most sensational experience EVER!
He shares from his experiences why there is this subtle feeling of discomfort in some interactions and in others it feels so natural and organically comfortable. Hint: Consent of the intention 😉 He shares some great practical tools on how to communicate what might seem difficult and scary. He shares about a very open and perspective-shifting view on the giving – and – receiving concept.
“It is very fulfilling for the giver when the receiver helps them to be their hero and heroine”
One of Robert’s very unique gifts is drumming. Not only drums and percussions. But also bodies. Listen until he talks about “We have eyes in our palms.” aahahha… I’m melting. Speaking of melting: I was also melting when he said:
“Receiving and appreciating the person – that brings me the joy of touch “
You may be able to tell that I am a very somatic person.. 😉 So is Robert. And maybe you too. It takes effort to find the setting we can feel safe to fully express ourselves the way we are in and with our bodies.
Robert points out the importance of creating a safe space – stepping into the provider of safety role as the masculine so that the feminine part (men, women, trans) can fully let go and surrender.
