Friday, Feb 20th – 8p-2am: Spanking for Wellness Workshop and Party! For so many of us, spanking can act as a direct gateway to our emotions, sexuality, happiness and well being. Yet this practice has gone unrecognized as the powerful healing modality that it truly is.

Find out how this practice can help you release blocked emotions, reduce stress and foster a deep and balanced partnership between you and those you love while adding a healthy dose of joy and playfulness to your life.

Sunday, Feb 22nd – 2p-5pm: MAsT Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting! Sponsored by: MAsT Washington DC, MAsT DC Pan, MAsT Baltimore, MAsT Hampton Roads, MAsT Richmond, MAsT Frederick, MAsT Laurel Women, MAsT Towson, and MAsT Salisbury. The topic will be on Building the Team: Non-Adversarial M/s with Raven Kaldera and slave boy joshua, Northeast Master/slave 2014!
It seems like so many written models of M/s feature the angry Master continually punishing the disobedient slave, while the flow of information is deliberately choked off. This class is for people who aren’t interested in a power dynamic that’s one long series of takedowns, but becomes a smoothly-running system where both parties work together to achieve goals… and the s-types are encouraged to be honorable adults responsible for keeping their promises. We’ll concentrate on being the power dynamics a Team rather than as adversaries, and discuss methods of useful conflict resolution that reinforce the power dynamic rather than putting it aside.
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM – Social Pot Luck
(Bring a dish to share)
3:00 PM – 5:00 PM – Presentation
