About the Event
JAN 19 WORKSHOP SOLD OUT
NEW DATE FEB 3rd (will be held at a studio in En. Yoga, Northbridge and not at Mind, Body, Heart)
The Sensual Rope Temple is a shibari intensive workshop which focuses on intimacy, connection, ritual, sensuality and play while working with the versatile medium of shibari rope.
The workshop is great for various levels, whether you’re a beginner or someone with some experience who is seeking to deepen their practice and add intimacy and soul to what they are communicating. We focus on simple and effective rope techniques as well as communication tools, bodywork and energy so that you can create a safe and intimate experience for your partner without the need for years of study and complicated ties. A lot of classes focus on just the rope techniques and people leave without really knowing how to take the skill into their bedroom, this workshop aims to give even beginners the confidence to guide their lovers and friends through a really beautiful, blissful, sensual experience they won’t soon forget.
Shibari is a martial art turned bodywork practice/creative and connecting outlet from Japan. Originally used for capturing prisoners, this artform has morphed over the years to be an amazing tool for partner communication and creative expression. From the unique art of decorative knotwork and designs to the intimate connection created when we create a space for surrender, there are so many ways to use rope.
Many of us struggle to surrender in our life, and using this practice with a strong foundation of safety, trust and consent, we can experience a unique type of letting go which has powerful effects on the psyche. Often after a rope class people will share that they feel very much in their body, connected, trusting, blissful and at peace.
With solid safety and communication tools taught in the workshop, you will feel safe to communicate your wants and desires so that you can have the experience you desire!
We use Cacao before the rope ritual in the evening as cacao is a heart opening, energising plant medicine. Cacao has been used with sensuality, romance and love connections for thousands of years and it is a beautiful addition to rope play. We use ceremonial cacao from Bali.
