The Art of Receiving Service Workshop
With Andrea Zanin

Some delightful creature wants to polish your boots, clean your house and make you a home-cooked meal every night… without charging a cent! Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Well, it is. But if you’re one of those lucky souls who has inspired the devoted attention of a service-oriented individual, you may have noticed that being on the receiving end requires its own kind of work, and comes with a very particular set of challenges. This workshop will help you get a handle on those challenges—from the inner work of vulnerability, trust and self-knowledge to the practical tasks of developing management skill, protocol and consensual entitlement. Come learn how to cultivate a profound, mutually rewarding relationship between server and served. BDSM experience not required.
