About this Event

CALLING ALL COURAGEOUS SOULS TO THE TEMPLE!

This workshop designed to empower you to re-write your past utilizing the erotic/relational art-form of kink. For the purpose of this workshop, we define kink as the exploration and utilization of creativity, conscious role-play and power dynamics, and (sometimes) erotic energy to create a conscious interpersonal dynamic and lived relational experience. Just like trauma, kink has the capacity to impact us on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, sexual & etheric/spirit/soul.

IN THIS WORKSHOP, YOU WILL:

- Learn and practice 3 tools for clear communication and safety when negotiating a scene (or any relational experience) both within and beyond this workshop.

- Learn 4 different ways to utilize kink to heal trauma and past wounds that hold you back from being more present and at peace with yourself and in your relationships in your current life.

- Have the chance to create and enact a scene for your own personal and relational/relationship healing.

WE VALUE CONSENT, & YOUR LIMITS & BOUNDARIES

Every single aspect of this workshop is consent-based and optional. You may come and do only a few parts of it, observe and take notes, or step out for certain exercises that are beyond your limits, for any reason whatsoever, and with no explanation. Erotic expression or sexual behaviors are welcome but not in any way required. The workshop is clothing-optional, but again, we invite you to keep all of your clothing on if that is what is most comfortable for you. Your limits, boundaries, and "no's" are not only respected, but celebrated.

SOLO OR DUET

You can take this workshop on your own or with a partner, friend, or loved one with whom you feel safe. We will also take the time to create a lot of rules, conscious communication, and safety so that you can have a safe experience as a solo participant in the workshop (you will be paired with another participant of your choice for scene work).

PRE-REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS REQUIRED

Registration will be capped at 10 individuals. Pre-registration is the only way to secure your spot.

CONFIDENTIALITY

All participation is completely confidential. We will go over confidentiality agreements for participants at the top of the workshop and answer any questions to ensure safety and clarity.
