Rituals for Play
Ceci Ferox & Nana Quinncoon
Rituals are an important part of BDSM practice. They help us get into the mood and mindset of play, build the dynamic of roles and focus on the present moment. They also help us let go of roles and the moment of play, and ease us back to reality with softness. Rituals are about repetition, awareness, and personal significance.
This workshop is held in Finnish/English
What happens in the workshop?
We will focus on building our own rituals for before, during, and after play. We will do hands-on practice and work with finding a way that is meaningful for each of us.
For whom is the workshop?
For anyone who is interested in building a more mindful way of playing and doing BDSM. You don't need any prior skills, but be prepared for physical and/or mental power exchange. You can come with a partner or find someone at the workshop.
Will I need to bring something, is there a dress code, how do I prepare?
Bring any tools that you might want to use, like candles, rope, floggers, amulets etc. (not mandatory to bring anything).
