Blessings, Sacred Kink, Switching, and Silliness

Hello beautiful beings, What a whirlwind of a week, wow! I taught 4 classes, was interviewed for a documentary on kink community, saw coaching clients, had the first meeting with my new personal assistant, and managed to get time in to see a friend. I’m tired just writing about it. No, actually I feel really blessed and energized, able to take on some challenges that life is presenting right now with more patience and calm (plus having friends be game to talk with me during an anxiety moment helps too). This week I also had a chance to do something…

Transformation, Disabilities, Leather, Teaching Skills, and Sacred Transness

Hello beautiful beings, Remember how last week I talked about how the Wednesday series can sometimes be draining? Well, thank you universe for blessing me with this past week! Wow. For those who missed “Mythologies and Beliefs About Transgender and Non-Binary Experience”… what an adventure. We had a mix of non-binary, trans, and cisgender attendees with a wide variety of experience and the passion was electric. I want to specifically thank the brave person who asked for permission to voice their anger about how they interact with and have (or don’t have) connections with queer and trans communities… and the…

Trans Experience, Embodiment, and D/s Resources

Hello beautiful being, Last week I started a four-meeting series with a coach, helping me examine a lot of the things in my life. I’m a big believer that therapists should see a therapists, spiritual leaders should seek counsel with other spiritual leaders, and coaches should work with other coaches. One of the things she and I discussed was my Weekly Wednesday series. It is so incredibly satisfying, and yet sometimes challenging because its different every week, a new adventure, and often new material. How awesome, how beautiful, and occasionally how draining. Then, when that moment hits, spirit catches me.…

Sacred Sensuality, Patreon Changes, and Ikigai

Hello beautiful being, It is beautiful here in Denver, around 50 degrees, crisp and clear. This amuses me though because less than a week ago there was a blizzard that shut down the city, and this coming week snow is expected once more. This area is beautiful but fickle – towering peaks and rich greenery buffered by the heat of the sun that reflects so much more a mile up. I have felt the same way about life recently. The shadow of anti-trans hate speech in a double-burst yesterday, balanced out by the beauty of friends holding space for me…

Musical Time Travel, Dirty Talk, and Food Play

Hello beautiful beings It’s late at night and Lou Reed is playing over my living room speakers. Dancing a fine line of inspiration and desperation, the lyrics of Dirty Boulevard dance their way through the air. It turns songs and Walk On The Wild Sidetakes its turn, memories coming back to me of 1995 sitting in a café with bottomless coffee and creamer in Portland as I talk with sex workers and queer punks about life, love, hope, and trying to find places to crash away from a home that was toxic. That amazing 1972 single whose A-side was “Perfect…

Trans Allyship, D/s, Ethics, and Sacredness

Hello beautiful beings! I write to you from my wonderful new desk chair, having spent the morning attending a class at QueeRope, a queer and rope bondage crossover event hosted by Karada House in Berlin. One of the silver linings, the delights, the points of beauty out of this year that has caused such hurt, harm, and heartache has been having events like QueeRope become available worldwide. True, I’m having to be online by 8am to attend the 3rd class slot (if I want to attend live), let alone 330am for the first class slot… but compared to having to…

Travel, Primal Play, and Authentic Teaching

Hello beautiful beings! I write to you tonight from Denver, Colorado. I’m all moved in, with just a trip to IKEA (this weekend) needed to unpack the boxes that are stacked up. It’s as if your intrepid instigator owns a lot of books! The smooth trip with my friend Gay Sunshine was such a gift from the universe, though driving through small towns in Texas found us in many places where everyone was unmasked, so we were glad to be double masked and having brought enough food for our entire journey. Gay even gave me props for mad snack magic…

Sacred Sensuality, Power, and Online Teaching

Hello beautiful beings, I am still on an intellectual and emotional buzz from last weekend. Having 19 attendees, two crew, and myself dive into a three-day journey into our personal desires and the practical tools to make them happen concerning power exchange, authority transfer relationships, dominance, submission, and so much more. Each Delving Into Power is unique because on the Friday night I sit down with everyone and go over their intentions, desires, and interests for discussion, and format the weekend as a balance between what was scheduled and what the realities are for the people in the room. This…

Poetry, Passion, and Queer Age Play

Hello beautiful beings, Amanda Gorman’s amazing performance of her poem “The Hill We Climb” at the Inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris was a stunning piece of art that is going to echo in my heart for some time to come.  When day comes we ask ourselves, where can we find light in this never-ending shade? This weekend I am leading called “Delving Into Power,” where 19 amazing adventurers will be going on a journey into exploring their dominance, submission, and desires for power exchange or authority transfer relationships. This notion to me of finding light and the…

Dark Roleplaying, Weekly Wednesdays, and Inauguration

Hello beautiful beings, The past two Weekly Wednesdays have been absolutely delicious, and I’m feeling such gratitude for folks who showed up this week for the discussion on body modification for trans bodies. We had planned for an hour and a half, but about half of us went for another half an hour before I called it. This could honestly be a 4+ hour class/discussion.  I need to really consider for this Wednesday series how to narrow down my focus again, because January discussions both ran out of time! Because of this, I promised the folks who attended the teaching…
