I’m happy to announce that I’ll be presenting at Leather Reign, the Puget Sound area’s Leather and BDSM conference, November 8th-10th. Leather Reign is a particularly great conference if you’re interested in authority transfer relationships. Registration opened today, so now’s the time to get the lowest price on tickets!
I hope you’re registered for KinkFest, because they’ve sold out again! I’ll be teaching New to the Scene, Drawn to the Edge and Slipping Into Hypnosis there this weekend.
I’m also offering a special deal on private instruction, if you want to learn in more depth or you find yourself wishing that I were teaching different classes at KinkFest. This weekend, you can book a lesson for $60/hour, with a one hour minimum rather than my usual two hour minimum. For more details, you can read my private intruction page, then contact me!
Which would you like to do first: learn to improvise more effective hypnotic suggestions, or practice delivering pre-written suggestions in your own confident voice? In May, both choices lead to the same results! We’ll be discussing and practicing Ericksonian double binds, powerful ways of phrasing suggestions to create a sense of choice.
Afterward, we’ll try out the “Koala Box” method for arranging group practice time, as pioneered by the BEHIVE hypnosis study group in Boston.
Let’s play with pokey things! Join us to learn the basics of needle play, then explore ways to use temporary piercings to create devious restraints or inventive predicaments. You’ll learn about safety and skin anatomy, gain palpation skills to inform your needle placement, and practice piercing the uncomplaining (citrus) needle bottoms we’ll provide. Then, you’ll have time to try out these skills with a friend, or bring your curiosities & scene ideas to an interactive demo where you can see how your suggestions play out!
