Evoluntatry Dynamics – Kruella and Cat

Kruella and Cat’s primal dynamic begins from the idea that every person in the Pride must undergo constant personal evolution to adapt and overcome repeated power struggles to prove that one has earned their place in the dynamic. As the Pride Alpha, Kruella earns the right to rule the dynamic through force of personality, ethics, intellect, and will. The Pride operates on a “power with,” rather than a “power over” model, meaning that while the dynamic contains elements of traditional Dom/sub power structures, their dynamic centers around the Pride Alpha pushing each member of the Pride to grow individually and as a part of the relationship.

This class will be an exploration of how different dynamic types can be blended together with primal dynamics to create a customized dynamic to fit you!

Puppy Hierarchy and Its Discontents– Pup Aechus

You’ve heard of the Alpha male. You’ve probably heard of the Alpha dog in a pack. How well do those monikers relate? How well do those roles hold up to scrutiny?

In this class you’ll learn the psychology behind these personality types, how they work in the human world, how they work in the world of human puppies, and then (perhaps most importantly) how they can be misused, misapplied, and misunderstood.

Your instructor, who identifies as a gamma puppy, will explain the various ranks found within a puppy pack and show how those labels can both help and harm individual identities and interpersonal relations.

This class isn’t just for pups and humans. All species are welcome to learn and discuss.

Power Exchange with an Experience Differential- AJ Renard

Many Power Exchange relationships involve partners with differing levels of experience and involvement with the lifestyle. One partner may have a tremendous amount of play experience but is new to a PE dynamic, or one partner may be introducing the other to the lifestyle in general. How do you navigate these disparities while keeping the Power Exchange in tact? If the s-type is the one with the larger knowledge base, how do you maintain the dynamic, if the D-type has more experience how do you keep expectations realistic and not take advantage or overwhelm the s-type? We will explore how to navigate these potential issues, how to discuss them, and ways to work around and avoid them.
