About the program:
Much of what we do in BDSM play creates altered states, whether it be subspace or getting your Dom on, the transformation of pain and pleasure in an erotic context, or the complete focus that a good scene creates. You don’t need to know anything about hypnosis to make these things happen, but knowing something about trance states and suggestion can amplify your experience, sharpen intensely, and create new possibilities of play.
Whatever your style of play, in this introductory level class we will show you how to make your BDSM play better as a top or a bottom through intentional use of trance state and suggestion. We will combine a bit of theory with in-class exercises and demos that will give you the tools you need to start using this powerful technique to your scenes. Some knowledge of BDSM terminology is helpful, no prior experience with hypnosis is necessary. Showing up with a practice partner is encouraged but not required.

Classes are structured as a sequence of practical exercises that quickly build skill and confidence in hypnotists and subjects alike.
