POWER            SURRENDER            SELF-EXPRESSION            JOURNEY

Curious about BDSM? 

Maybe you’ve already had a taste of D/S magic in your sex. 

Maybe you’ve read about it and its transformative possibilities. 

Maybe a friend has shared with you their experience of the healing power of consciously exploring one’s taboo desires.

In this 2-day immersive experience, you will take a journey into the realm of BDSM.  This course is designed for beginners.  We will start with the fundamentals of the Dom & Sub archetypes and how to embody them in our own systems and in our partnerships in a conscious and powerful way.

You will acquire basic rope bondage skills and proper safety training for doing impact play, and much more.  You will explore some more advanced topics such as Humiliation Play and Consensual Nonconsent.  You will learn what it takes to make the d/s dynamic sustainable and pleasurable over the  long term in a relationship, as well as how to introduce this dynamic into an existing relationship.

This course is for couples as well as singles.  This is an experiences-based, exercise-based course.  If you are coming with your partner, you are very welcome to just partner with them for all the exercises.  If you are coming singly, you will partner will your fellow students for the exercise and scenes.

YOU ARE ALWASY AT CHOICE.  Learning to speak our desires and boundaries in real time is a crucial aspect of d/s play.  Even in the class you will be completely at choice as to how much you want to participate and how deeply you want to go.  If you feel like you want to sit out a particular exercise or scene, you will be absolutely at choice to do so.

TANTRA meets BDSM with LAURIE HANDLERS & OM RUPANI

Tantra & BDSM - Image.jpg

In this weekend journey, Laurie Handlers and Om Rupani will create a permission field in which the participants can discover a greater YES for their being, their desires, their Eros.  No aspect of our being has been more shunned by society, more relegated to second class status than our Eros—especially the so called darker aspects of our Eros.

 

The art of Dominance & Submission / BDSM expertly plays with the darker side of our Eros.  In this journey we will take the participants through solo practices of release and self-acceptance, as well as partnered exercise and SCENES in which they may give themselves permission for their desires around POWER, DOMINANCE & SUBMISSION, the giving and receiving of CONTROL and the deeper experience of SURRENDER.

 

We invite you to come explore and deepen your Spiritual and Erotic journey. Integrate the various aspects of your psyche, discover new levels of turn-on in your relating and sexing.  Say YES to life, to your desires, and to your BEING.

 

Course is open to singles & couples

TAKING THE SEXUAL PATH TO AWAKENING

Kandinsky.jpg

YOU CAN TAKE THE SENSUALITY PRINCIPLES AND THE TECHNIQUES PRESENTED HERe AND JUST ENJOY THEM, CREATE BETTER SEX WITH THEM AND LEAVE IT AT THAT.

The statement I just made above is false!  I wish I could say that you…to let you off the hook, to keep sex simple for you.  But the deeper truth is this:  The better you get at sex, the more skilled you get at generating and moving sexual energy in your partner, and the more receptive and surrendered you become at allowing your lover to move your sexual energy, you will not be able to avoid the spiritual component of sex.

This is due to laws and principles that are as simple and direct as the laws of plumbing!  Energy moves!  The more you move that energy, the more you clear your system and allow passage to that energy, the more that energy is going to travel throughout your system.  And energy traveling throughout our system and hitting all the centers is essentially what spiritual experience and advancement is.

So, there is no getting away from the bind that to have good sex is to have spiritual sex, and in order to use sex as a spiritual path you need to acquire skills to give and receive good sex.

Your only out is this:  If you don’t want sex to become a spiritual path, then just keep having bad sex.
