Seat of Power: Sub Skills & Switch Empowerment
Switch it up with us! No matter what side of the slash you are on, there are ALWAYS skills to be learned, re-learned, un-learned, expanded, honed and challenged along the journey of conscious BDSM play. Discussion topics will include consent practices, communication and negotiation, and a brief overview of the psychology of different approaches to power exchange (including top/bottom, D/s, M/s, service, pet play, big/little, and mentorship). Hands-on practice with pain management and breath exercises, meditation, and position training is intended for all players to develop self-awareness, self-discipline, and unearth their warrior heart - you can harness these skills to bring back into the bedroom, dungeon, as well as food for your own personal path of growth. Class is dedicated to a focus on accessibility for all bodies as well as the mind and spirit and reflects on therapeutic benefits of BDSM as well as concerns for long term self-care and corrective exercises. The impact of trauma, disability, and socialization of privileged and marginalized communities is examined while fostering mechanisms of compassion for self, and empathy for others. Explore your curiosities and question internal assumptions while using somatic techniques, theatre drills and primal expression as access points for the seasoned and uncertain switch alike. This class also introduces concepts surrounding self-collaring, service switching, and nonbinary relationship structures. Leave with new and revived grounding and empowerment skills, release from socially engendered shame, and intuitive insight to human experiences of both vulnerabilities, and victory.
