Block 1 – 3pm to 4pm
Newbie Track – At First Glance w/Sir Gethan & his Roseblu
This class goes over the basics of interacting with various dynamics. You will learn what to look for, how to address those people, and some basic etiquette surrounding the scene. while this class is geared for the new people to the BDSM community it is also a good class to take if you are just not sure what you are seeing, how to act, or if you just find that you are always the awkward one that puts their foot in the mouth at the drop of the hat. At first glance teaches the methods and cues so that you can interact with at least an educated guess of what to expect when you see some and you know “Hey something is going on there”.
Concept becoming real – Spirituality, Religion, Mastery, and slavery w/ Master Icedog & slave ravyn
Religion is one of those topics that can be a risky, challenging one to discuss. One person’s spirituality is another’s religion, and it is often said that what we do in our kinky lives can be spiritual moments. Coming from different childhood backgrounds, Master IceDog and slave ravyn have different perspectives on religion, yet are able to have a thriving M/s dynamic nonetheless. We will give insight into the religious portion of our lives and dynamic, along with a discussion on parallels between teachings of religions and how they relate or conflict with a Master/slave dynamic.
Starting Play Track – Dungeon Essentials & Negotiations w/Lady Leigh
This class explores the etiquette and protocols of public play spaces. What to expect when you visit a dungeon. How should you dress? How do you meet others? Do you have to be part of a couple? What are the rules for play and socializing? What about negotiations? All of these questions and many many more are answered. This presentation is an open discussion.
Relationship Track – Strategic Polycule Planning w/ Dr Patty
Why? The Invasion of Normandy was a less complicated plan then arranging date nights in a polycule.
Dr. Harmony will show you the essential tools, skills, and outline for a successful Annual Polycule Strategic Planning Meeting. These meetings are essential in the development of trust, collaboration and maintaining the top three levels of the Harmony Relationship Community Center/ Gottman Sound Relationship House.
Block 2 4:15pm to 5:30pm
For the newbie Track – Welcome to the Dark Side. What I wish I had been told when I came into the public / semi-public scene. – w/Master Alan
Everything you should know, BEFORE you decide to join the “semi /public” community. Just a short refresher course on everything you were taught in kindergarten. Then we’ll touch on the “7 deadly Sins”, Anonymity, and what Consent actually means.
Concept becoming real – Danger Will Robinson! Warning Signs & Red Flags w/ Master Blue & slave sheri
Warnings signs and red flags are often there to see, but we ignore them for various reasons. Intuition, your gut, sixth sense, these are all warning signals our brains and hearts try to send us. We will discuss how and why you should heed these signals.
Starting Play Track – FPE Dungeon 101 – How we do it here w/Trance and Jarg
Come learn how we handle our dungeon from two of our own where they will cover our common rules and expecations of attendees. You can ask questions about what is and isn’t allowed so that you can plan your fantasy scene while keeping things in line with reality.
Relationship Track – Power Exchange?! w/ Ava & Meredith
A lot of time and discussion went into forming this class. Within an M/s, O/p or D/s relationship one usually assumes the Top/ Dominant/ Owner & Master is top dog, head honcho etc. with the balance of power in their favor. Others disagree and say the bottom/ submissive/ property/ slave holds all the cards. What happens if the power is actually equal? Is it still a power exchange dynamic? Who has authority? Who takes care of whom? This is an open classroom discussion and we look forward to giving you our combined perspective, as well as hearing yours.
