As you journey deeper into the "headspace" involved in BDSM, aftercare is one of the most important parts of making sure your practice is safe, rewarding, and enriching. Dr. Ryan Westrum will lead the group through a discussion of different activities that can be used for Dominants, submissives, and switches to decompress, process, and maintain well-being. This is an interactive group workshop with opportunities for discussion and practice.
