Roisin has a simple trauma-informed approach to exploring embodied erotic power. In taking this workshop you will learn incremental steps, leading you towards a transformational experience of shared erotic power, your power in collaboration with another. 

Playing with Submissive and Dominant states of attention can be deeply satisfying, extremely pleasurable and incredibly touching: it brings us achingly close to ourselves and the other we are playing with. We begin with foundations, you will learn to acknowledge and befriend your experience and speak this out within a pair. 

From the outset, we will begin to illuminate and bring into awareness the status play that is naturally happening, through the simple framing of ‘in’ and ‘out’ states of attention. Together we build strength and allow our beauty to emerge from there. Learn in a fun, relaxed and experimental environment the building blocks of the sub/dom dynamic, gain an embodied experience of what the states of submission and domination feel like in your body. Maybe you have always wanted to know what it would mean to be in a Domme role, but never had the tools to take that position with confidence and integrity. Or perhaps you would like support in exploring what Submission could be for you, how you might access this pleasurable experience, whilst feeling safe and powerful. 

We emphasise pleasure over performance and help you to relax into authenticity with this exploration. The stripped back nature and gentle pace of our work, lets your nervous system explore the reaches of internal and external awareness allows us to drop into and experience the true pleasure of both states. 

One of our dear teachers Leticia Nieto describes power as anything that lets us move from our genuine centre, in this workshop we work to recognise your core power and use that power to play with status. There is nothing intrinsically wrong about being in a ‘high’ or ‘low’ (dominant/submissive) status position. Both positions have the potential to be useful, pleasurable and pleasing there is also the potential for destruction. In bringing our awareness more fully on the dynamic in its constructive form we look for insights into the destructive possibilities. 

We like to think of this work as a safe and fertile ground to expand your experience of sensation; and these are real exercises that can elicit true emotional responses. We will put in place a container that will hold you and us safely, if you would like to join and have some questions about this being right for you at this time then please contact us to discuss anything. We ask people to come in a pair with a person that they are happy to work with, someone you trust to explore with, a friend, lover, partner etc. If this is not where you are at please get in touch and lets see what we can do. This workshop is not explicitly sexual; however, you may find yourself playing with erotic energy and status. The exercises will be fully clothed, you will not be required to give or receive touch. We also include an awareness of how oppressive conditioning affects the process of playing with status. 

There is one extra date added on Friday 1st July, if you have been before there is new material to cover and an updated syllabus. 

 

About Roisin Green   


Roisin works at depth in a gentle, simple and to the point manner. Through ongoing mentorship with private teacher and coach Elle Rosenthal for three years, she has learned the delicate dance of cultivating psychological and spiritual power simultaneously. In working with Roisin, you will learn to be precise, slow down become deeply compassionate as you build your temple of awareness and gain the capacity to hold yourself in your experience. Roisin has facilitated retreats, workshops and on-to-one sessions of the embodied sub/dom syllabus, she created with Molly Spokes. Through Roisin’s own transformational experiences of embodying this work she has come to know fully the pay offs of this autonomous empowerment. Her understanding and care of this subject reaches into her work with Domestic Violence Survivors, where is brings her attention to situations where the status dynamic has moved into destruction. In 2022 Roisin began training to be a psychotherapist and is happy for this training to be further underpinning her dedication to rigour and safety in this field. 

Roisin also spent many years training with the circus, she fell in love with clown and making theatre which inspires her style and skill in the Domme world.
