Lee Harrington Sept-Oct Newsletter (MA, MD, GA, BC, OR, TX, OH)

Such a beautiful September… I write to you from a friend’s house in New Hampshire, gearing up for a weekend of ritual workings, bondage events, and visiting folks I adore. It’s been an intense month, *lots* of writing on my next book, and being on the road well over half the time. I my spare time I’ve been collaborating with some different artists on working on my own divination deck that I hope to have out in 2010. What’s the book? “Sacred Kink: The Eightfold Paths of BDSM and Beyond” When will it be out? The end of November, in…

Lee Harrington July-September Newsletter (WA, NJ, WI, MD, GA)

Happy hot July everyone! I am back home in Phoenix, AZ where the temperature outside can literally fry an egg on the sidewalk… it’s around 114F today outside, that’s somewhere around 42C for folks elsewhere in the world. It’s crazy, but I’m glad to be home curled up on my own bed and breathing in my own insence after an intense month on the road. A little while back I had the opportunity to appear on a few great podcasts. The first was with Dan & dawn, for the Erotic Awakenings Podcast. We got together and discussed everything from faith…

Rope, Bondage and Power Anthlogy is OUT!

http://astore.amazon.com/pass-20/detail/1935509020 It’s finally out! About 9 months ago I started working on this project, and talked the publishers up from 7 authors to 12 to what became a whopping 17 essays plus my own by a total of 20 authors. This book is the first anthology to look at so many varied perspectives on how rope, bondage and power exchange interrelate with one another- from gender and bondage to the power struggles of class, Chinese medicine as a model for moving energy to setting intent in your scenes… I was blown away. The 18 pieces in the book are: Forward:…

Happy Winter Greetings! This week finds me in beautiful Peaks Island, Maine, where I am holed up with two dear friends, their two sweet dogs and a cute but cranky cat working on upcoming projects.

PassionAndSoul Student Lounge Opens

http://fetlife.com/groups/1890 I’ve wanted a place for a while to discuss after the class ends the ins and outs of what touched us… to keep the conversation going. This is an opportunity to do just that! I love my Yahoo Group, but its not very well suited for following conversations in my opinion. Finally, a forum has been created for sexual explorers by sexual explorers- and I’ve decided to host my student lounge there. I’ve already started 2 threads- one for introducing ourselves, and one for Denver Bound where I just taught… but my hope is that you will say hi…
