Engaging consciously with edge play as a tool to get the life you want!
All of us desire abundance in our lives, but we’re constantly frustrated, angry, or devastated that for some reason, it remains out of reach for us. In this workshop, we will explore the concepts 1) that we must expand the capacity of our nervous systems to be able to receive all that goodness, and 2) that playing with our edges through kink is an incredibly powerful tool for expanding that capacity. Our ability to stay present and feel safe in our bodies while we experience high sensation and engage with the unknown translates directly to how much abundance (aka the unknown) we can tolerate receiving in other parts of our lives. But if the goal is to push beyond the edges of what we know, how can we be sure to keep ourselves safe?
This workshop provides participants with frameworks, brain hacks, and experiential exercises to understand the critical importance of nervous system capacity, as well as how the window of tolerance works, what it feels like in their bodies, and how to use it during edge play to keep themselves safe. Participants will leave with the tools they need to go forth and use kink consciously to expand their capacity to receive all the goodness and abundance they so desire and deserve.
Ev (they/them) is a white, Jewish, trans and non-binary person who works in anti-oppression education. Ev is deeply grateful that their kink-community journey has been almost exclusively in queer and trans spaces, starting in New York and New England more than nine years ago. kink helped teach Ev not only how to trust another person, but how to trust themself. As a trauma survivor, they believe in the possibility for kink to teach, transform, heal, and foster a damn good time. Ev lives in Denver with their two scruffy dogs.
