The Magic of Conscious Kink – with Seani Love
Are you curious about kink? Ready to explore a wider spectrum of erotic expression but not really sure where to start? Would you love to deepen trust, connection, communication and erotic creativity & polarity in your intimate relationships?
Whether you are a curious beginner or an experienced player, international award-winning professional kinkster Seani Love from London’s ‘School of Erotic Mysteries’ invites you to join him. Take a journey through the depths and delights, magic and wonder, expansion and exploration, perhaps even pleasure and pain… using the breathtakingly wonderful approach we call ‘Conscious Kink’.
Conscious Kink helps us expand our understanding of our bodies, our subconscious patterns, our sexualities and thus ourselves. With a strong emphasis on boundaries and consent, Conscious Kink gives us a diverse set of tools that allow us to expand our sexuality, be more confident with our lovers and play partners, and become more empowered as self-aware erotic beings.
During this training you will learn about:
• The use of ritual and intention to create safe spaces
• Boundary setting, consent and safety techniques
• Deepening connection through Tantric techniques and conscious touch
• Giving and receiving pain and pleasure with intentional BDSM skills
• Service, sovereignty and surrender
• Eroticising the authentic dynamics of domination and submission (D/s)
• Giving, receiving and holding power
* Darker options such as consensual non-consent
* Erotic archetypes and ritual
With an emphasis on:
• Putting all these things together for the purpose of journeying, exploring erotic sensations and/or deepening understanding.
The weekend will be paced gently and will include:
• A discussion on shadows, fantasies, the origin of the kinksters’ impulse.
• Discussions on why people would want to explore their erotic shadows and do things like inflict pain or have pain inflicted upon them.
• An ecstatic rite where we use all the BDSM and conscious kink techniques developed so far to facilitate deep and wonderful journeys for each other.
Currently being arranged.
It will be somewhere in Melbourne inner suburbs.
Friday April 8th [7-10.00]: Meet Seani Love: Shadow Practitioner
Come one and come all! A fun and fascinating intro to Seani’s work. Check it out if you are new to all this. Also a great social evening for those already familiar with this field. (10-10.30 will also be available for informal hang-out and Q&A time with Seani.)
Intimacy Level: Low. Suitable for the curious and reserved as well as the bold and experienced. The content can be edgy (it’s Conscious Kink after all!) but this evening isn’t about pushing edges.
Sat April 9th [10-7.00]: The Foundations of Conscious Kink
The first day of the journey is about gaining a good basic understanding of the practical foundational skills. We will also explore the expansive, transformational potential of shadow sharings. A mixture of experiential, and rich practical teachings and discussions about the nature and value of this path of self-discovery.
Intimacy Level: Whilst erotic energy may well be part of your experiences, nonetheless this day is focused on practically exploring exercises, experiences and techniques for fun and learning. (Suitable for the somewhat adventurous newcomer and more experienced folk wanting to deepen their practice.)
Sun April 10th [10:30-6:30pm]:
The Deeper Mysteries of the Erotic Shadows
A facilitated archetypal, magical exploration into more of the erotic-esoteric. How to hold and explore these realms as a deep personal journey. Using the tools of Tantra, Conscious Kink/BDSM, and Shadow Archetypes, this day is about creating safe and conscious ritual (intentional/clearly framed) spaces to look within, explore what we find there, integrate this and emerge more whole and empowered. Supporting each other through communication, witnessing, debriefing, and finding and honoring of boundaries. Key teachings and sharings will frame a largely experiential day.
Intimacy Level: Opportunities to explore the erotic self are opened up some more, yet this is a facilitated workshop, not a play party. (No direct sexual contact. plus this is a sexual health conscious environment.) Later in the day some participants may choose to be partially undressed or to dress more ritualistically. Clothing options that evoke an aspect of your shadow or erotic journey are encouraged, as is use of your imagination.
