If it be your will

And my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more

--Leonard Cohen

From The Oxford Dictionaries:

Serve (2): to be of use in achieving or satisfying Submission (1) : the action or fact of accepting or yielding to a superior force or to the will or authority of another

While many of us yearn to be of use in achieving a goal for, or in satisfying another, common issues like ego, pride, and self-desire can often prove as profound barriers to deep submission. Conversely, these same matters–ego, pride, and self-desire– can provide an incredibly solid foundation for graceful service (and training gracefully!) when wielded affectively. This workshop will explore the deeper calling to serve, as well as some of the very real barriers that get in the way–and how we might be our best, most graceful selves in those moments of service that are most challenging. As with most matters in Dominance and submission, service is both a matter of heart and mind, and a subject quite close to the hearts of Mister Goldberg and girl kim, who are pleased to be able to offer these magnified discussions regarding submission and service for The Exiles. This workshop will include learned lessons from both Dominant and submissive perspectives, plus scenarios, discussion time, and Q+A.
