WOO-WOO WTF: Scene Energy for Skeptics
When it works, kink and BDSM can be a profoundly moving experience, sometimes described as “touching the divine.” But if “the divine” is not part of your worldview, you can be left wondering what the hell it was that you touched! Graydancer uses this class to explore non-spiritual contexts for understanding “scene energy,” from neurochemistry to Eastern medicine to neurolinguistic programming and evolutionary models. More importantly, the class will help you develop strategies for dealing with that energy when it happens in a constructive way for both yourself and your partner. You don’t have to ignore it when the woo happens, nor does it have to freak you out. Knowledge is power, and learning how to get what you want out of the weird shit that happens in a scene can add a powerful tool to your kinky skillset.
