Pain Processing and Catharsis:
Going from Owwwww to Ahhhhh! Would you like to increase your ability to process sensation? Do you find yourself beginning to fly but continue to hold back out of fear of catharsis? Are you a Top who wishes to learn new methods of supporting your bottom as he processes sensation, holding space in ways that allow him to really fly? What exactly is it about pain that gives us opportunities for personal awareness and a deeper spiritual connection? In this class we will focus on learning to move energy/pain in ways that create more enriching experiences in our play. Each participant will have the opportunity to practice methods of processing sensation as well as discuss the joys and pitfalls of playing on the edge.
