* Are you curious about Conscious Kink and BDSM?
* Are you ready to expand your understanding of erotic expression?
* Would you love to deepen trust, connection, communication, and erotic creativity in your intimate relationships?
Then this breathtaking journey into the wonderfully erotic world of Conscious Kink is your best starting point! Whether you are a curious beginner or an experienced player, award-winning sexuality professional Seani Love with his talented super star team invites you to join them for this beautiful day of exploration.
Conscious Kink is the act of bringing conscious awareness and self-enquiry to BDSM techniques. Conscious Kink helps us expand our understanding of our bodies, our subconscious patterns, our sexualities and thus ourselves. With a strong emphasis on boundaries and consent, Conscious Kink gives us a diverse set of tools that allow us to expand our sexuality, be more confident with our lovers and play partners, and become more empowered as self-aware erotic beings.
This workshop is open to people of all genders, sexual preferences and relationship styles; there is no gender-pairing during this workshop. People may choose to come with a partner and do all of the exercises with their chosen one or you may choose to come along and engage with a beautiful selection of other amazing souls.
During this 1-day intensive you will learn about:
* The use of ritual and intention to create safe spaces
* Boundary setting, consent and safety techniques
* Deepening connection through and conscious touch
* Giving and receiving pain and pleasure with intentional BDSM skills
* Service, sovereignty and surrender
* Eroticising the authentic dynamics of domination and submission (D/s)
* Giving, receiving and holding power
This workshop will be paced gently and will include:
* A discussion on shadows, fantasies, the origin of the kinksters’ impulse.
* Discussions on why people would want to explore their erotic shadows and do things like inflict pain or have pain inflicted upon them.
Is this event definitely going ahead?
Yes! We have reached the minimum number of participants required to secure this event and it is now definitely going ahead :-)
Who is this for?
This is an all-genders, queer-friendly workshop, open to individuals and couples of any gender and aimed at those with little or no experience of Kink/BDSM. Those with more experience are welcome to join this day as a warm-up for the intermediate-level event The Rituals of Shadow Tantra (https://www.facebook.com/events/938269626517938/) that will follow on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th October at the same venue. A discounted 3-day ticket is available for those wishing to attend both the beginner and intermediate events (18th – 20th October).
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.

For those ready to dive deep!
On Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th October, an intermediate (level 3 of 5) conscious kink weekender called The Rituals of Shadow Tantra (https://www.facebook.com/events/938269626517938/) will follow this event at the same location. If you feel confident that you will be ready for a further 2 days at intermediate level, you may buy a discounted 3-day ticket for both the beginner and intermediate events (18th – 20th October). Please note, if you are unsure if you will feel ready for the intermediate weekender, please wait to see if tickets are still available on the day as refunds will not be possible less than 7 days before the event.
