Class Description

Ordeal path workings using torture tie techniques. Hand-made rope collars for intentional acts of submission. Transformational rites using rope for rites of passage or deity invocation. Bondage positions for yoga, trance workings, and divination. We will explore how this powerful tool can create amazing art on the canvases of our lovers' bodies, or be used for transformative rituals of intimacy and healing. This simple concept of wrapping lines around a beloved (or ourselves) can tap into the power of our sensuality, mindfulness, passion, and delight. Kink scenes can challenge us into cathartic ordeals, emotional transformation, and dancing between the worlds in transcendent scenes. Rope has the power to be used as a diverse energetic, spiritual and magical tool, and in this class we will dive into historical applications of rope magic and turn to the present in a discussion full of storytelling exploring how this amazing tool can be explored no matter your path.
