Power, Surrender & Intimacy for All Genders
with Al Waddell and Alex Jade

September 28-30, 2012 in Oakland, CA

This workshop explores techniques of BDSM practice, using the circle of all genders as a grounded, respectful container in which to discover and clarify edges of empowerment, liberation and embodiment.

Learn to recognize aspects of yourself that are continually engaged in power dynamics, and hence become more choiceful about how you can share power with compassion and skill. Learn ways that power and sensation can be wielded for a healing intention, and experience the intense fire generated by a surrender to trust. Expect heightened awareness of your body’s capacity for sensation, a greater sense of personal empowerment, and appreciation for the connection between the divine energy of power and the human energy of surrender.

If you've wanted to explore eroticism, archetypal energies of the masculine and feminine both in yourself and with a variety of other bodies and genders, then this is your chance.
