September News: AK, KS, Australia, and possibility models

Hello beautiful beings! I write to you from Anchorage, Alaska, having just finished a week-long Alaskan cruise with family. Though I lived in Alaska for over five years, I never had the opportunity to head further south than the Kenai Penninsula, so the chance to see Skagway, Juneau, and Sitka was a delight, as well as see a variety of glaciers up close.  In Alaska, it is not possible to ignore climate change. The Mendenhall Glacier, which had been retreating at a pace of 100-150 feet a year for a while, retreated over 800 feet this year according to folks…

August 2019 Newsletter: BC, KS, Melbourne, and beyond!

Hello beautiful beings, Today I feel deeply blessed. I am sitting poolside in Dallas, enjoying quality conversations and time with people I appreciate. The heat in Texas is intense though, with sweat beading up on brows and gratitude each time I change into a new tank top.  Later this month, I’m looking forward to visiting Vancouver, British Colombia, where I will be teaching “Power Exchange, Energy Exchange” on at Metro Vancouver Kink (MVK). This will be on the way to a cruise with my father and two of my cousins up to Alaska, before heading back through the Kansas City Area.…

June Newsletter (Coming to MD, CO, BC, and KS)

Hello beautiful beings! Summer is firmly upon us, and I am happy to be writing from my secret hideaway in Texas, gearing up to head this weekend to the Mr., Ms., and Mx. Great Plains Olympus Contest Weekendin Dallas, Texas.  I’m excited! I haven’t gotten to explore the Dallas kink scene or leather community, and it will be good to attend with those dear to me. Last week was Camp Crucible, which was a delight to be part of again. Human puppies, age play, pony camp, hook suspensions, sexy casino night, deep conversations with old friends, and so much more. Coming up in…

May Newsletter (HI, MD, TX, Philly, CO and beyond)

Merry Beltane, Happy May Day, and International Workers’ Day! This May Day finds me in Kaelakekua, Hawai’I, just south of Kona. I’m visiting family, and it has been interesting getting to see my cousins as time goes on – I am the oldest of my generation at 39 years old (eldest child of the eldest brother), and my youngest cousin is 9 (youngest child of the youngest brother). She has sprung up like a weed, and her siblings are both over 18 now. Quite a shift from when I last saw them. The week has held lots of time for…

April Newsletter (Denver, Houston, and Spring Joy)

Hello beautiful beings! Spring has sprung, and the sun is tickling the air waking flowers from their slumber. Having just gotten back from Austin, I can say that the blue bonnets are in bloom. Their violet, royal blue, and white are covering hillsides leading to Dr. Robert Rubel (author of “Master/slave Mastery: Updated handbook of concepts, approaches, and practices”) and the impeccable Goddess Indigo to drive all over the region to find beautiful places to take photographs together the day before I taught a weekend of power exchange and gender classes in the area. We’ve also left Mercury in Retrograde, which is…

March Newsletter (AK, TX, MD, and beyond!)

Hello beautiful beings, Merry March! The first two months of 2019 have zoomed by. In January I relocated to living on my own in Denver, Colorado, and I feel so spoiled by my new space. Plenty of space with windows and altars everywhere, a few blocks from the capital building, and lots of amazing food within an easy walking distance. Being back in the center of the country has also set me up for doing a lot more teaching on the road this year. My exciting lineup is listed further below. The last two months have also featured some personal…

November is #NaNoWriMo!

November is National Novel Writing Month, also known as #NaNoWriMo. Though I have been a passionate writer for many years (it’s hard to believe that the first edition of Shibari You Can Use first came out in 2010 and I’ve been blogging since 1998), I’ve never participated. This year, I have decided to change this. I have a few partially written books, and I’m using #NaNoWriMo as an opportunity to work on my book on self love, tentatively entitled My Partner, Myself: Becoming Your Own Friend and Life Mate. It all began with me hearing about the notion of getting…

Healing, Gender, and Spirit with Tommie StarChild

Spirit worker, witch, artist, and educator Tommie StarChild joins Lee for a previously unpublished podcast. Recorded at the end of 2017, StarChild shares their life journey that led to their call to authenticity, a path that goes beyond the boxes that spiritual and sexual communities find themselves locked in. Exploring “ecstatic bliss and ecstatic fear,” they look at the nature of our inner spirit, and how self-awareness allows for an exploration of gender that lay beyond the form we are given at birth – including the revelation of our inherit inner fruit and inner/outer Jell-O essence. Dive in deep and…
