Sharing her experience as well as telling personal stories, Tomo will examine obedience, compliance and alignment of will during this exploration and discussion.
Inspired by her navigation device (Garmin at the time) on the drive to an M/s event many years ago, Tomo will describe her thoughts during this discussion on obedience, compliance and alignment of will. As the Master, do you seek obedience or do you prefer your desire is aligned to? As the slave, do you obey or do you align with the will of your leader? Does the need for obedience or alignment change given the issue? Does this shift, deepen, or change over time? Sharing her experience as well as telling personal stories, Tomo will examine obedience, compliance and alignment of will during this exploration and discussion.
