Power Exchange Unconference

Date: Dec 07, 2019
Location: The Columbus Space, Columbus, Ohio

A full day of power exchange classes and workshops, presented by the participants.

Cost: $29 for all day

Power Exchange relationships is a consensual relational dynamic when a partner decides to either give up or get control of authority. 

Master/slave? Dom/sub? Owner/property? Gorean or Taken in Hand? Or something you have defined yourself? No matter what your style of Power Exchange, they count.

Unconferences are attendee-driven conferences where content for sessions is driven by participants. Since attendees both propose and present content for the unconference, the material is relevant to what attendees want to hear about and discuss. An unconference looks like organized chaos at the beginning but by the end of the unconference you understand that there is really no chaos at all.  It is simply a different way to organize and present information that is relevant to the attendee.

Request topics and workshops on issues that you want to hear about, or present something – either a facilitated discussion, a workshop on a specific skill, or a lecture on a topic you are familiar with. It’s up to you! And don’t worry, even if you’d prefer to sit in the back rows, you still get to help decide what topics get covered, so the workshops are sure to be relevant to your interests!
