PassionAndSoul April Newsletter

PassionAndSoul and Lee Harrington April Newsletter

Wow- it’s April already? I’ll be putting out the next few months worth of class announcements shortly, but I wanted to make sure to announce a few great classes before prices go up (the Beltane Intensive) or before they sell out 😉

April 11-13
Beyond Leather
Ft. Lauderdale, FL

I will be presenting two rope bondage classes and performing in the Nawa Nights show at Florida’s first really big kink conference in ages. Full registration passes are sold out, but basic registration and day passes are still on sale until the 5th.

April 13th, 6pm
Rope for Sex at Sugar
Baltimore, MD

Join me at Sugar, Baltimore’s Women and Trans run sex shop, for Rope for Sex. Rope bondage is a wonderful tool for spicing up your sex life- from binding legs open for access to the loins to turning a bed into somewhere a lover can’t escape from, giving into their desires. We will learn how to make simple restraints for spread-eagle poses or binding lovers to chairs, as well as exploring ways to bind limb to limb, body to body, crotch ropes (and how to convert them into pieces that can be fucked through), and more. Let’s explore and think creatively about techniques for adding bondage to your style of sensuality and sex. Bring at least one 25-30ft piece of rope, and a dildo if you have one, for hands-on play, though limited supplies will be available to borrow from the instructor. Register in advance to guarantee your place!

30 April – 4 May 2007
Sacred Sexuality Beltane
Northern Maryland

I’ll be presenting a brand new intensive at Free Spirit’s Sacred Sexuality Beltane. Each year nearly 300 pagans, polyamorists, swingers, tantra practitioners, members of the leather community and other people with a passionate attitude towards life gather together in Northern Maryland to celebrate Beltane with a variety of rituals, workshops and experiences. This is my first time at Beltane. I’m looking forward to an amazing time!

The Ties that Connect Us
an 8 Hour Rope Bondage, Intention and Magic Intensive

Join internationally renown rope artist, human sexuality and spirituality educator Lee Harrington in an exploration not only of the art of rope bondage, but how to use it for connecting with our partners and for doing magic. Feel the fibers echoing your desires through your fingertips and wrapped around the body of your partner, feel the fibers trace you towards divination techniques you may not have explored before, feel the fibers teach you another way to explore the universe at large. From fun and playful hands on practices brought to you by the author of “Shibari You Can Use,” to intense conversations about the ethics of rope bondage magic and how it applies to a variety of the eight-fold paths (rope bondage is not just about ordeals after all). Feel the fibers in your finger tips, and find the ties that connect us.


I will also be teaching at BodyBound this weekend ( and Ohio SMARTFest in Cleveland the first weekend in May (, but both are already sold out!
