BDSM holds many useful tools for healing parts of ourselves, particularly those parts which were harmed in relational spaces and power dynamics. The ability to create and cultivate safe, consensual, clearly negotiated play provides a perfect framework for reclaiming power and redefining our relationship with ourselves and others. However engaging in kink as a tool for trauma healing can also cause more harm if not done well. This workshop will provide some basic guidelines and strategies for beginning the use of kink in healing, as well as precautions to take to ensure more damage doesn’t occur. You’re access to your pleasure, and the full expression of your erotic self, often awaits just on the other side of trauma. We can help you find the entrance to that path.
All classes are held on Zoom and recorded for future purchase. Email [email protected]
