Exploring Intimacy Through Rope Bondage
Bondage, from the verb ‘to bond’, means that we form a bond or a tie with another person. It is the act of becoming one with the rope and your partner, helping one overcome one’s ego and resolve into a state of Nirvana. By binding and releasing one another, both partners are able to maintain a present, mindful & meditative state, not dissimilar to Japanese calligraphy or tea ceremonies.
There are many reasons why one might submit to being tied or why one might wish to tie another. In this workshop we’ll explore creating intimacy through bondage and how we might reach states of inner freedom induced by exterior immobilization. How through surrender we gain the ability to intensify the emotional bond to ourselves and our partners, which can have profound effects on our psyche.
