Service with Power
A powerful person may be influential, independent, straightforward, and assertive. We will examine personal power, how it can be a tool in our service as servants, and look at the misconceptions that one with a strong will cannot surrender it. Discover how to serve and yield while embracing the power that is within you. Whether you are powerful and struggle with the concept of combining power and surrender or you seek to find your own internal power, join us as we look at many sides of this issue.

To Serve - The Basics
You know in your heart you are meant to serve, to kneel, and to surrender. The feelings are deep and perhaps you cannot even grasp or define them, however you know they are there. You wonder though, what is the next step? How do I do this? What do I need to know? You have feelings of wanting to do the right thing, and you don't want to make a mistake, but don't know what that right thing is. Come learn the basics of service, and surrender. Tomo will provide slaves, submissives and others who serve with an outlined path to help you define for yourself what the right thing is for you and for the person you serve. We will discuss the basic skills that every servant should have, along with practical applications.
