During this extended weekend workshop, you will be guided through many of the ways Conscious Kink, Fetish and BDSM can be approached in a ritualistic way in a system we call ‘Shadow Tantra’.
* Explore how energy can be moved and shifted using BDSM technique
* Delve into how accessing archetypes through ritual can be empowering
* How ritual and erotic connection go beautifully hand-in-hand
* Look at the potential healing benefits that come about through conscious exploration of kink and sexuality
If you’ve been to Seani Love’s workshops before you’ll be familiar with some of the basic structures he uses (Energy Bubbles, Consent and Boundaries, Communication Tools). For those new to his work, you’re in for a treat as these basic structures can be profoundly life-changing and life-affirming.
We’ll be looking at archetypes, and understanding how we can embody different archetypes in erotic ritual process leading us to greater understanding of ourselves and our relationship to others. This bodes well for super-charging our sex-lives as much as it empowers us to know ourselves much better.
This type of work has many aims including:
* Better erotic communication techniques
* Know and express your boundaries more proficiently
* Hold space for others as you take them on deeper journeys
* Learning the craft of accessing archetypes in erotic ritual settings
* Find ways to have a more beautiful and fulfilling sex life
* Get to know yourself better
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This is Level 3 of 5: You’ll need to already have experience with kink, knowledge of consent, boundaries and energy work to join this workshop. We will give a refresher of these subjects but this workshop is aimed at people who have already experienced some kink, are already proficient at knowing and expressing their own boundaries and who have an understanding of energy work. If uncertain, please speak to the organiser (Natalie) about your experience level.
This is an all-genders, queer-friendly workshop, open to individuals and couples of any gender. Our intention is to create a safe space for all regardless of gender, orientation or relationship status. No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity to work with different people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you come as a couple, you may choose to do all or some exercises with your partner.
