ONLINE: Sex Magick for Kinksters
The traditional definition of magick is "the art and science of changing consciousness in conformity with Will." We could also say it's a way of moving and transforming energy and perception. In terms of our life work, magick is a set of tools that allows us to get out of our own way to more effectively do our work in the world.
The magickian's tool kit includes techniques such as ecstatic trance, symbolic ritual, polarity work, breathing techniques, sensual immersion, and more. The sex magickian specifically works with the energies raised in solo or partnered play as fuel for their spellwork or life Work.
Those tools should seem very familiar to us kinksters. You may not be a magickian, but most of us are playing around in the magickian's tool kit.
This class will explore some basic information on how to understand the potent energies invoked in D/s and S/m. We'll talk about the nature of the soul, how to engage the deeper mind, creating a safe container for a scene, and what one can do with the energies we raise in BDSM play. Whether you believe in magick, want to believe in magick, or think this is all just a fun metaphor for how the mind works, you are sure to gain new tools and perspectives on BDSM play by attending this class. Join us!
