temptPleased to announce my upcoming workshops at the Celebrating Sexuality Conference  just outside Melbourne in Feb 14-16.  It is a two-hour introduction to my more in-depth 2 day workshop on this topic.   If you are interested in attending the more extensive version of this or other workshops, be sure to join my mailing list to find out when they are being held.

Artemisia de Vine Goddess of Conscious Kink & the Erotic Arts presents: Embracing our Erotic Shadows through Fantasy & Role Play.

Professional dominatrix, switch & practitioner of the conscious erotic arts, Artemisia brings her expertise and passion for entering into the deeper realms of kink play to life in this workshop.

In this workshop, Artemisia introduces the idea of consciously using role play to engage our vulnerable, hidden, erotic shadows and “forbidden” sexuality in a way that benefits ourselves and our loved ones and allows us to form a deeper, more aware relationship with our shadow selves. She guides you through fun but potent exercises and provides practical tools for creating role play scenes and rituals. There is no nudity and you do not have to share your personal erotic fantasies. Engage in the practical exercises only to whatever level you choose to.

Fantasies often get a bad rap amongst tantra circles as something that takes us away from being fully present and embodied with ourselves and our lovers. Sexual fantasies are toted as acceptable in popular culture but very rarely is their potential to access healing, personal growth and spirituality ever talked about or explored. Often our sexual fantasies are different to our lovers and it can be quite scary to share them. We quite often don’t want to admit we have them ourselves because the nature of fantasy is that of strange dream-like desires, images and urges that drift up from our unconscious mind only when we are aroused. In fantasy we act in ways towards ourselves and each other in way we may not really want to in everyday life. This can be confusing and a source of shame. Artemisia presents an accessible but powerful ways of embracing our shadow selves through fantasy, erotic role play rituals.

Artemisia is a professional and lifestyle kinkster, sex worker, somatic sex coach, workshop facilitator, public speaker, blogger and aspiring author. Trained in sexological bodywork, various forms of neo-tantra, lomi lomi bodywork, BDSM and draws on various esoteric erotic traditions. Her whole life is dedicated to passionately exploring and sharing the erotic arts in aware and delicious ways.

Should you enjoy this introductory workshop and want to explore deeper, Artemisia offers more in-depth one-on-one sessions and lessons and a far more in-depth 2 day workshop on this topic.  Join her mailing list to hear about upcoming opportunities and browse her Conscious Erotic Arts and Conscious Kink websites for current offerings.

Artemisia de Vine

Artemisia de Vine

It’s always so lovely to get feedback from my clients.  I especially love working and playing with those on a journey of erotic awakening who are open and willing to explore and discover just what is possible.   After a consulation together P and I decided on an erotic lomilomi massage based session with drawing on aspects of tantra and kink.   P had already seen a three of my friends and colleagues who also approach sexuality from a conscious or tantric perspective.  We all approach things in our own unique way and have learned from some of the world’s conscious sexuality pioneers. He had learned a lot from them and it was time to explore something new.  This is what he had to say.

“I’ve been on a Tantra discovery journey during 2013. On my Tantra journey, my research frequently spoke about this spiritual massage referred to as Lomi Lomi, which I understand comes from the Hawaiian culture, so it was of interest to receive a great recommendation from the incredible Zoe Montana that Artemisia de Vine, was the Mistress of Lomi Lomi practitioners. Zoe warmly recommended and suggested making contact with Miss de Vine.

As chance had it, Miss de Vine was visiting and an appointment made after a preparatory conversation. After further exploring desired expectations before our session started, another talent of Tantra ladies was reinforced – they all listen and remember these personal discussions – I know this to be true because of the way they weave so much more into the sessions and experiences of the Tantra traveller. Artemisia did this very effectively during the very relaxing and oily Lomi Lomi massage – combined with some erotic kink play and a touch of spanking.

One of the many great experiences in my Tantra journey includes the generosity of spirit, skill and intelligent conversation provided by wonderful guides such as the thoughtful and elegant Olivia ~ Tantrawoman, the delightful and creative goddess Electra Amore, the gracious, accepting and sensual Zoe Montana and now the skilful artisan Artemisia de Vine. In all experiences from Olivia, Electra, Zoe and Artemisia – there is a great sense of pride in ensuring that the experiences they offer, are not just a standard formula of sensual pleasure. They all want to understand the expectations of the Tantric traveller and what they hope to achieve by sharing time together. On viewing the comprehensive web sites offered, the range of skills and experiences offered – but all hark back to the Tantra principles of breath and life.

 Thank you one and all ~ I regard you all so highly as trusted travel companions.

 My thanks to you Artemisia, I clearly enjoyed a wonderfully sensual and exhilarating experience enjoying  fully the skills, explanations, ideas and company that you shared.” – P
