Conscious BDSM: A powerful tool for radical transformation.
Our existing ego structure - that which binds us to the perception of who we think we are - consists of polarities. Freedom comes through integrating these polarities. One extreme, but highly effective way of catalyzing this integration is through full immersion in one or the other side of a polarity.
In my sexual healing work, I focus on Desire and Fear as a key polarity awaiting integration. I follow the client's erotic Desire as a gateway to Gnosis, or deeper realization. One powerful field of my work with eroticism occurs when clients are drawn to domination and power play in sex. I find BDSM to be a powerful tool for radical transformation.
My aim with BDSM sessions is to immerse the client in the essence of their desire with such totality that it simultaneously overwhelms them with the greatest fears associated with these desires. When desire and fear clash with full intensity, the polarity structure can no longer maintain itself and collapses, or merges.
My methods include intensely psychological enactments; that is, I use intuition to track the neurological and emotional pathways that the desire-fear complex follows in the client's consciousness. I also have a very clear way of using petitions to initialize and frame BDSM sessions. In this workshop, I will share with you my methods, modus operandi and some case studies of what has happened with clients through this conscious BDSM work.
