Want to Come See Us? Here’s Our Workshop Schedule for 2019 (& there’s a lot!)

rife and I are excited to be teaching more M/s classes throughout the year.

Many are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, where we live, though we are willing to travel elsewhere to do classes, too. It’s especially possible to add workshops on when we’re already planning to be somewhere (like Albuquerque, Atlanta, or Seattle, where we already have plans to travel).

The Academy of D/s Confidence is the online home for our webinars and online offerings. We host monthly webinars through a membership fee on Patreon.

We are currently booking more workshops!

We are offering classes focused on relationships and power exchange. Other classes are possible by special request & arrangement. Our schedule is getting VERY full, so if you want us, reach out soon.

Check out our full class list, and make requests if there is something you don’t see.

Rates for the classes are variable, depending on how we have to travel, timing, whether we’re already in the area, etc. rife & I have a fair bit of travel planned in 2019, so there could be a gig or two tacked on to where we’ll already be. Email me about where you’re at & what you’re thinking, and I can get you more details. [email protected]
