During this 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’. This approach can lead to personal empowerment, greater depths of self-love and personal healing. Plus it can be a lot of fun.

We will:

* 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

Tickets available here:

Seani Love’s workshops have a heavy focus on consent and boundaries as the basis for all interactions and we’ll do what we can to ensure we have a common language around consent and boundaries before diving into more explicit techniques. For those new to his work, you’re in for a treat as these essential consent, boundaries and communication skills 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

* Conscious Kink and BDSM skills including power exchange, impact play and the techniques of surrender

* Explore how Conscious Kink skills can be used in a ritual context

* 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


This is an intermediate level workshop. This means you’ll need to already have some experience with one of kink, BDSM or Tantra. We will give a refresher of these subjects but this workshop is aimed at people who have already experienced some conscious sexuality, and are already proficient at recognising and expressing their own boundaries. If uncertain, please contact the organisers to discuss.

This is an all-genders, queer-friendly workshop, open to individuals and people in relationships 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.

Many exercises are partnered. We do not match partners based on gender in this workshop. There is always something to learn about yourself.

If you are easily triggered in spaces with a high level of sexuality or if you have significant sexually-related trauma, please speak to the organises about your suitability before booking your ticket.


The workshop will take place at a fantastic MWilds studio at 245 W 29th St, Floor 11 (look for the “Wild” sign), on Saturday February 29th and Sunday March 1st 2020, from 10:00am–6:00pm each day. Please commit to staying for the whole duration of both days.


Included in the price of the workshop is a 3 hour ritual play party taking place on the Saturday evening (2/29) from 7:00-10:00pm. We will start with setting safety rules and then ritual intention and practice some of the skills in a more freestyle way. The team will be on hand to ensure a beautiful and powerful evening is had by all. A great chance to explore the yumminess of Shadow Tantra!
