April 6 - Seduced By The Kisses of Rope: Building Intimacy and Connection with Rope

An introduction to Kanso's unique Kiss of Rope technique, a simple and intimate form of Japanese Rope Bondage that involve using one rope to caress , capture and seduce your partner.

I share techniques on how to create mental and emotional space for deeper connection with your partner through the Japanese concept of Kokoro, which translates to "letting the rope flow through heart, mind, spirit".

Learn to avoid being too caught up in complex forms and patterns, in order to better focus on sensing and responding through the rope, letting intuition and the subconscious set the flow.

It's all about the journey, NOT the destination!

*No previous rope experience is necessary.
