This 3-day (22-hour) immersion workshop delves into the study of how to be a Dominatrix through the teachings of archetypal, psychological, mental, verbal and practical aspects. Having the right equipment, toys and physical skills is only part of being an effective Dominatrix. There is a certain air about Her.  A Dominatrix needs to speak, behave, and carry Herself evocatively in order to command the attention and obedience of her submissive.  BDSM is about power exchange—or energy exchange. A submissive feels dominated by a Woman who exudes dominant energy. This energy can be channeled, practiced and emanated.

This course is taught by Mistress Damiana Chi, who holds a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology, M.A. degree in counseling psychology, and a B.A. degree in psychology with an emphasis in behavioral studies. She is also a certified sexologist specializing in BDSM life coaching.  Her educational background and clinical training in psychology and post-graduate studies in Jungian and archetypal psychology is at the heart of her understanding and teachings of BDSM dynamics. It has been said that BDSM play is 70-80% psychology. Damiana has had a full-time practice as a professional dominatrix in Los Angeles since 2000 and holds one of the most highly-regarded reputations in the pro domme community. Classically trained in BDSM techniques by legendary Dominatrices, Damiana has incorporated the art of domination along with a self-developed methodology of female domination that is very psychological in nature.

Mistress Damiana welcomes 6 powerful and inspired Women to explore and cultivate the Dominatrix within. Practicing or non-practicing, experienced or newbie, lifestyle or professional dommes can benefit from the teachings of this course.   The 6 student maximum format is designed to create a learning environment that is conducive to receiving individual attention and feedback so that personal goals be met. The small group size also creates an intimate, supportive environment that encourages exploration and growth around a subject matter that is usually very personal and private.
