Heart of Winter - Dark Love 1 day Tantra and Shibari Workshop with evening illicit play temple including Shibari suspension demo.

Option to do both events or just one. The Workshop runs from 9am-4.30pm and Temple runs from 6pm-10pm.

A collaboration with Louise Claire (Tantra Teacher & Priestess) and Scarlet Darling (Dominatrix & Rope Queen).

In the heart of winter it's the perfect time to drop into the depths of ourselves, visit the underworld to uncover our hidden darkness; our shadow, dark power, desire & our dark Love. Delving into and exploring different archetypal energies and how to express them in a connective and playful way. Consciously releasing, activating and sharing your darkness. Dipping into Shibari rope play for at home and in the bedroom.

-Dark Serpant embodiment - accessing primal, base serpant kundalini energy, moving & connecting energy with others in a transpersonal way through contact improvisation movement & dance
- Exploring dark masculine & feminine energies and how to utilise these powerfully through heart in relating, sexual expression and life.
- Delving into Shadow & illicit play; shamanic journey to release inhibitions and access hidden desires, fantasies, archetypal energies and primal power
- Shibari: Learning some iconic Japanese style rope patterns while also exploring the ins and outs of negotiating from a kinky space. We will discuss
- How to create a scene and how to use rope bondage to enhance your relationships through connective energy exchange: Surrender and Domination.
As shibari involves the process of removing a person's physical agency (in the form of restraint) it is important that these tools are used consciously and from a place of cultural, spiritual and energetic understanding.
- If there is time we will delve further into surrender and the Japanese concept of “shame” - playing with the release of sexual inhibitions and access to the darker self.

About Scarlet Darling:
After stumbling into BDSM in the UK 13 years ago, Scarlet has been teaching Shibari (Japanese rope bondage) in NZ since 2011 and now runs Auckland's only dedicated shibari dojo. After a short career as a piano and ballroom dance teacher, she decided that kink was the life for her and became a full time Dominatrix, devoting her time to the study of human sexuality, anatomy and shibari. She has worked with many of shibari’s ‘big names’ in Australia, Japan and Europe and regularly arranges workshops with international presenters to help progress the Auckland community’s exposure to this art form. Passionate about kink education, Scarlet runs weekly shibari workshops and monthly BDSM workshops from her dojo in West Auckland.

Rope work is her first love in the kink world, closely followed by sadomasochism and energy exchange. In her personal play she most commonly uses connective rope, ‘semenawa’ (sadistic rope bondage), hojojutsu (the martial arts of rope), and suspension, but is comfortable teaching and answering questions on all things rope and kink related. Equally happy tying or being tied, you can usually find her with rope in her hand.
