BDSM & Healing

Class Description

Many of us have had the experience of conquering shame and building confidence through BDSM play and dynamics. While each individual experience is unique, there are some common aspects of BDSM dynamics, connections, and play that foster and facilitate healing, growth and personal development. This class will provide an overview of trauma and how it expresses itself in the body. Discussion will focus on identifying key healing aspects. Come share your experiences and learn more!
