Classes – Spring Break 2014


Love has everything – or is it nothing? – to do with it

Dan and dawn, Great Lakes region Master & slave (2010), leaders of the House Metta power exchange tribe, and authors of the book Living M/s – A book for Masters, slaves, and Their Relationships, as well as a happily married couple of a decade – lead a workshop on love and M/s. Loving M/s is a style of Master/slave relationship that can bring a number of powerful emotions to the table that can appear to conflict with the power exchange. They give examples on how to navigate through jealousy, a desire to please, fears of co-dependence, and other powerful emotions so that the primary foundation of the relationship continues to be a healthy M/s one – and that foundation in turn feeds emotional solidity.


The most powerful tool of any slave (or Master)

Dan and dawn, Great Lakes region Master & slave (2010), leaders of the House Metta power exchange tribe and authors of the book Living M/s – A book for Masters, slaves, and Their Relationships, lead a workshop on the most powerful and sought after aspect of a slaves service. It isn’t how good you can clean, or how hot you look or how well you suck cock. Instead, it is the mindfulness that needs to be developed that allow you to flow seamlessly as a slave in and around your Master’s needs, while at the same time finding an authentic slave heart. And…it is worth noting that the methods taught in this workshop will assist you in becoming a better cleaner, be more attractive, and give better head.


Becoming a Master is more than just a title

Join Dan and dawn, an M/s couple for the past 10+ years and authors of the book Living M/s – A book for Masters, slaves, and Their Relationships, for an advanced class on the foundation and advanced aspects of what it takes to be a Master (or Mistress) in a full time 24/7 relationship. This class addresses decision making, self-confidence, ego, identifying strengths, becoming vulnerable to your weaknesses, and assisting a slave into transforming into someone completely living up to their full potential. Create in yourself that kind of person who belongs in the seat of power.
