Own Your Darkness with BDSM

We all have baggage that we have to manage in this journey of life. Some of it's fairly manageable with a little self help, some good conversations with friends, a good workout, or perhaps counseling sessions. Sometimes there's some baggage that needs a little more attention and might have a sexual nature to it. There might not be a lot of satisfying pathways for learning how to work through this stuff in a healthy, nondestructive manner. BDSM can, interestingly, offer a way of dealing with some complicated issues in a way that provides safe rules, boundaries, and control. DiAnna and Kara will be discussing how BDSM role play can be used to integrate the parts of us that we try to keep suppressed but can pop  out in ways that can be destructive. This will be a challenging and thought provoking discussion open to those that are complete BDSM novices or are experts.
