Power & Presence Mentorship Programme
This is a mentorship programme for people who are interested in exploring their Dominance - for the purpose of engaging in D/s play and/or more broadly building a healthier relationship with power in their lives.
My style of Dominance draws upon what’s already within me - you might like to think of these as traits, desires, archetypes, or energies. This is in contrast to creating an external, separate character that I roleplay. I like to think that we all have the capability to step into Dominance in a way that is uniquely authentic without needing to act!
To ethically approach power dynamics in this way, it is essential to do our own inner work first - that includes, amongst other things, looking at where you have blocks, shame, resistance, unmet desires, and the strategies you use to get what you want. My learnings here have created shifts across many different aspects of my life, and so I place a heavy emphasis on this over teaching the “technical skills” of kink - it’s less about the activities we do and more about having the ability to invite certain felt states in others through our presence, embodiment, and language.
Theory, embodied enquiries, core skills practice, ongoing support, and accountability are offered through blended learning i.e. via a combination of online and in-person sessions.
The structure is designed to provide you with ongoing support as you learn to embrace and integrate the different parts of yourself that might be called upon to empower you.
My work is influenced by the Wheel of Consent, conscious kink, archetypes, the psychology of dominance and submission, some aspects of Sexological Bodywork, unpicking implicit and conditioned power dynamics, and skills that I've been taught and have gone on to develop such as verbal domination.
The programme runs for 3 months and will be delivered as follows:
6 group zoom sessions of 90-120 minutes (fortnightly) - each with a different topic and including theory, embodied enquiries that can be done solo or with others, plus space to ask questions and share experiences
Weekly home practice - you will receive weekly prompts for research, self-reflection, or practical exercises, which are optional but will of course enhance your learning if you engage fully!
Community - you will have the option to join a private group chat with other mentees where you can share the outcomes of your weekly home practice, receive input from me and your other peers, build connections with others, and find people to practice with!
One in-person gathering - this will be scheduled for the end of the 3 months as a space for us to get together, deepen our learning, get more practice, and celebrate our progress! This will be a 4-5 hour workshop, location TBC depending on where students are based.
The next programme will begin on Monday 14th November.
Weekly home practices will be sent out via the group forum every Monday.
Group coaching calls will take place fortnightly on Wednesday evenings between 7 and 9 pm via Zoom. The dates will be as follows:
Wednesday 16th November
Wednesday 30th November
Wednesday 14th December
(we will then take a “half-term” break for the festive period)
Wednesday 4h January
Wednesday 18th January
Wednesday 1st February
The in-person gathering will take place on either the weekend of 25th/26th February OR 4th/5th March. The date and location will be confirmed at the beginning of the programme based on where participants are based.
There will also be an option (as people have already asked!) to add extra 1-to-1 sessions with me online or in-person at a discounted rate while the program runs.
The cost for the 3-month programme is £897 or £299/month. This includes the group coaching calls, ongoing home practices and support, and attendance of the in-person gathering. You may need to allow extra in your budget for travel and accommodation costs, if needed.
** If you are keen to take part but feel that the price is the only limiting factor to attending, please get in touch and we will see what we can do to make this more accessible! **
You oozed kindness and acceptance and a desire to support people breaking free of societal shackles, thank you for sharing so much of yourself in the demos, they were so essential for the whole group to feel able to explore.
