Description

Off the Wilson L Stop

Introducing a new event combining rope shibari harnesses and meditation.

Curious about using rope bondage for meditation? Intrigued about the idea of letting go? This class may be for you!


Question and Answer Session

What kind of harnesses will be taught and used in the meditation sessions?

Harnesses may include both decorative or restraining.


How does it feel to wear ropes in meditation? How will it be different than regular meditation?

Rope Bondage can be a powerful experience for some but the range is wide to inconvenience for others. People can choose to wear restraining or non-restraining/decorative ties, the latter of which are recommended for newcomers. For myself, wearing ropes polarizes the mind away from wherever it wanders be it insecurities or whatever irks you. The brain may release oxytocin - the love hormone that has been shown to promote social bonding - because the feeling of the ropes can simulate that of being hugged.


Who will lead the meditation session? What it will it be like?

I have been exploring guided meditation from multiple practitioners and studying it and will be leading the sessions. Before the meditation session begins I will give a talk on safety and consent as well as a brief lesson on how to tie rope harnesses. There will be time to practice on each other before the session begins. The meditation session will last 45 minutes to an hour.


Will people be naked at the sessions?

Nudity is not allowed.


Will people be having sex at these sessions?

There will be an opportunity for intimate touch between partners but for the comfort of all participants we ask that clothes remain on and no sexual activity progress. The meditation is about surrender to the feeling of restraint more than sexual arousal. Although if you feel aroused that can be a healthy and normal response that is ok.


Testimonials about using rope bondage as a meditative practice

"Being tied up is not something most people would think would be synonymous with being relaxing, but to me, there is a freedom in restraint that I have not felt anywhere else; not at yoga, not during traditional meditation, she says."

"I think what makes rope bondage different is that it is pure connection. It's connection between your mind and your body, and your body and your rigger. It is relaxing, challenging, meditative and intimate, whether you're tying yourself or being tied by someone else - even when you're tying someone else."
