Facilitator

CaritiaAbout Caritia: lives as an LGBTQAI+, gender-fluid, BiPoC (assigned female at birth) individual. Walking a path with invisible disabilities and the living challenges which accompany that life. Educator, creative and ongoing work in process, whose advocacy for establishing boundaries is as strong as the desire to love with truth and honesty. On a quiet mission to destigmatise difference and return power to each individual. Using the language of kink to the point of geeky excitement. Caritia’s fascination with the root/the body stems from a longing too deeply ‘listen’ to (her) body holistically, from the inside out.caritia@karada-house.de

Event Details

This one-day workshop serves as a slow and safe(r) start into suspension work in shibari (Japanese rope bondage). We will take our time to enable you to create a stable and functional upper body tie (takate kote) and allow you to move to your first partial suspension and suspension to give you wonderful opportunities to play and explore rope on your own.

This class is for people who wish to move into suspension under supervision and guidance and for people who have started on suspension work but would like to get a more detailed and in-depth guidance that helps them to work on the finer points of this practice.

 

Here is what you will learn:

• Arrival

• Warm Up 

• Repetition: Single, Double, Tension, Frictions

• Anatomy & Nerves

• Consent & Negotiation 

• Components of an Upper Body Tie

• Hierarchy of partial suspension

. Hierarchy of suspension lines

• Focus on safe(r) suspension practice

• Aftercare

 

What you need to know:

You need to be able to create a stable upper body tie and have knowledge in single & double column ties, tension and counter tension. 

Bring a minimum of 6 ropes. We also sell ropes (please contact us in advance under info@karada-house.de) to arrange your purchase.

You absolutely need to bring a partner that you are comfortable working with in close proximity. This workshop will be held under the new safety & hygiene regulations. That means that only a very small number of people are allowed in this class. You will only touch and work with your dedicated partner and masks will be obligatory. The ticket price is per PAIR.

Due to the new regulations you must also bring your own food and drink and a towel for every person.

 

Who is this workshop for:

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid, queer, intersex, asexual, aromantic, agender.

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self expressions and do not assume, presume or project non consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
