Come experience the power of rope to create and nurture intimacy.
This workshop will not be about complicated knots or mastery. You will learn a few of the technical basics of Japanese bondage, and discover rope as a conscious touch and a loving encounter. Bondage need not be beautiful and perfect for it to feel alive and to give pleasure. For it to go deep, it is not necessary that the rope turn you on.
When tying or being tied, you feel your pleasure/displeasure, fear, anger and all the nuances of the whole rich pallet of human feelings…and you take to heart what is there. And perhaps this has a healing aspect. All experience levels in bondage are welcome. Experience with attentive touch, breath work and tantra is advantageous. (This workshop concept has been adapted from the work of German-based shibari practitioner and performer, Matthias Grimme)
It is possible to come single or with a partner. Ropes are available, although it is also advised to bring your own, if you have.
