What is the Dominatrix Archetype™?

An archetype is a universal idea that all human beings connect to.  The Dominatrix Archetype represents the idea of a powerful Female figure that we all feel drawn to.  She can take on many forms, but they all fall into four main archetypal categories: The Authoritarian, The Seductress, The Mother and The Queen.  

A typical Dominatrix character in the media is always portrayed one way: She is usually dressed in tight black clothing and is cruel, mean, and heartless.  But a real-life Dominatrix is complex and multi-dimensional, as Women all are. She is strict, but at other times, nurturing.  She is sexy, yet unattainable.  And She is always unpredictable.  

If you are reading this page, it is likely that it has come time for the Dominatrix within you to awaken and express Herself.  Others around you will feel intimated by you, attracted to you, safe with you, and be in awe of you all at the same time.   That is because when the four powerful female archetypes become cultivated, balanced and integrated within you, you emanate dominance through physical, erotic, emotional, and spiritual energies.  You are channeling the Dominatrix Archetype in connection with the Divine Feminine.

The Dominatrix Archetype™ Academy was founded and created by Mistress Damiana Chi, Ph.D.  She teaches all the workshops within the academy, personally mentoring her the students during in-person workshops and fostering their continued growth in ongoing post-graduate education in a live on-line classroom setting.

Mistress Damiana has been a full-time Professional Dominatrix in Los Angeles since 2000 and has one of the most highly-regarded reputations in the U.S. pro domme community. Trained in traditional BDSM techniques by legendary Dominatrices, Sabrina Belladonna and Ilsa Strix, Damiana has incorporated the art of domination along with a self-developed method of teaching FemDom that is very psychological in nature.

As a Certified Sexologist, Mistress Damiana endeavors to support the BDSM community by way of her 20+ years of experience and expertise in the fields of BDSM and psychology.  She offers kink-knowledgeable life coaching and BDSM psychodrama play therapy to individuals and couples who are in need of support and guidance.

Mistress Damiana holds a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology, M.A. degree in counseling psychology, and a B.A. degree in behavioral studies. Her educational background, clinical training, and post-graduate studies were rooted in depth psychology (Jungian and archetypal) and is at the heart of her understanding and teachings of BDSM dynamics. The marriage of her two long time passions--depth psychology and BDSM--gave birth to what is now known as The Dominatrix Archetype: A Psychological and Practical Methodology Workshop.  Graduates of the Workshop are invited to attend the Advanced BDSM Workshop and receive ongoing mentorship with Mistress Damiana.

The Workshops are held at The Chi Temple, Mistress Damiana's elegantly appointed, fully equipped private BDSM studio in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles.
