About Our Program:
Attendees at this workshop will be guided into a deep, relaxed, hypnotic/meditative state, during which they will become in touch with their calm “inner being” — uninhibited and blissful. When rising from this transcendent peace, participants will quickly jot out (on cards) a sexual fantasy they might wish to explore and title it but provide no byline/name.

They will also describe 2-3 non-sexual activities they love—e.g. Chinese food, jogging, dogs, etc. These anonymous cards will then be exchanged, read aloud, and discussed within the group.

At the end of this workshop, the cards will be displayed on a table, and anyone attracted to a certain person’s sexual fantasy (or other personality traits) may place his/her name upon the anonymous card, thereby inviting further communion, should the original anonymous writer so choose.

P.S. Workshop includes handouts and a free cassette tape: “How to Meditate” by Nancy Ava Miller.

About Our Presenter:
Hypnotherapist, teacher of Transcendental Meditation, former educator and professional writer, Nancy Ava Miller, MEd, dwells in a remote mountain region of New Mexico where she meanders rugged hills with her dogs, meditates, and pens the occasional poem. Her articles and poetry have appeared in numerous publications, including the acclaimed anthology Some Women (Ed. Laura Antoniou, 1997).

Sometimes labeled the Johnny Appleseed of S&M, Nancy once roamed the land creating S&M/fetish support groups. Today—still in the sex biz, as founder/owner of People Exchanging Power—she describes herself as the proud grandmother of a retired Navy man.

Please note: This is a Janus and not a Looking Glass event. Any questions or inquiries should be sent to Thanks.

Please note: Janus programs are open to all attendees 18 years of age and older who have a personal positive interest in BDSM. You do not need to be a member to attend.
