Join Michelle Belanger, author of the Psychic Vampire Codex, Energy Codex, as well guest star on Paranormal State, in exploring the intersection of Sadoshamanism and kink.
Sadoshamanism is a technique that uses the sensations of the physical body as a tool to push the mind past its self-imposed barriers. By pushing extremes of pain and pleasure, the body goes into a state of sensory overload. It allows the mind to transcend psychological barriers of time, place, and self. Once these barriers are broken down, the subject can be pushed into an altered state of consciousness. When done well, this state can facilitate catharsis and healing on a psychological and energetic level. Bring your questions, bring a partner, or come alone to this intensive demo. Michelle will cover the reasons you and/or your partner might seek a sadoshamanic experience, delve into a number of techniques for achieving shamanic trance through BDSM, and explore pitfalls you might run into along the way.
