This method was developed by Midori in the early days of Rope Dojo with the explicit purpose of moving people to tie and play from a deeper sensory and intuitive place ~ and to leave behiind awkwardness and uncertainty. This method is rooted in the Rope Dojo® philosophy - and thus will be presented in a rather uncommon way. Trust the method. It works!
