Shadow Archetypes of Dominant & Submissive
May 13 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm CDT
About this Event
One can destroy trust and connection – another offers transcendent dark-edged sexual ecstasy.
Our unconscious shadows can wreak havoc on our D/s relationships. They can also offer potent psychological depth to our erotic excursions into the dark edges of BDSM play.
For example, a raging tyrant or an incessant victim aspect of a person may be triggered to life in a moment, that acts nothing like the noble Dom or sub one aspires to be.
But in a consensual, negotiated scene, bringing out the tyrant aspect has the potential to drive the sexual intensity off the charts.
There can also be a shadow behind one’s holding back fully embodying the tyrant in a scene, even when a partner desires that intensity.
Learning about and beginning to resolve our shadows can help build profound trust, enhance the depth and intimacy of our D/s relationships, and allow the deepest expression and ecstatic experience of our personal BDSM sexual personas.
Join us for the Shadow Archetypes of Dominant and submissive and discover techniques for safer play, deeper ecstasy and intimate connection.
