Mental Mastery: slayvhood As A Gateway to Spiritual Affirmation

Class Description

Much discussion is lent to the topic of submission, yet where do the nuances of slayvhood surface in those discussions? In this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of the slayv mindset and orientation, how M/s can perpetuate and embody transcendent and ritualistic spiritual connections, and the potential effects on the mental health functioning of slayv-identified beings, with an inclusive focus on sociocultural identity.
