~Discussion Panel~ The Darkside of the Light: BDSM and Kink as Sacred Sexual Practices

At The Sacred Sexuality Round Up, New York City
Sunday, October 30th 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at Reflections Yoga, 250 West 49th Street, 2nd floor, NYC

Topics to include: Where the tantric and the kinky overlap, ecstatic states, the use of ritual space, the movement of sexual and erotic energy, myths about BDSM not being spiiritual vs myths that Tantra can’t be kinky.

In the spiritual world where the higher energies, especially around the 6th and 7th Chakras, are celebrated, there can sometimes exists prejudices towards the lower, “more base” Chakras and sexual desires. Similar biases often exist in sacred sexuality communities around whether certain sexual practices are spiritual, or “spiritual enough” to be sacred.

This special panel will consists of amazing individuals who have been exploring and tinkering with the energetics and dynamics of BDSM and Kink as forms of spiritual practice.  Join us for what promises to be an eye-opening and Chakra-opening discussion!

With Moderator Richard Anton Diaz from SexySpirits.com, and panelists Rev. Fisher from SpankingforWellness.com, and Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson from TantraPM.com.
