It’s a focused lesson on whole-person movements with a disciplined structure.
Delve into the pleasures of intimate erotic Japanese rope bondage which has gripped the imaginations of so many sensual connoisseurs. Bring the pleasures from Japan into your bedroom with this style of eros skills. Through the study of this one form, you’ll learn elegant, effective and sensual rope skills that apply to all other forms of rope play. Understand how to tie with smooth confidence and thrill your partner.
The pedagogy of this program is unique and comes from the Head-Heart-Hand philosophy. Everyone will do all the exercises, casting and receiving. By having all parties experience each of the drill procedures, it will help to make you a deeper player with better skills for explorations of your private pleasures.

- I love cotton rope as well. This is great stuff, especially if you're just starting out. Feels great, easy to tie with, great for sex play and very reasonably priced. Midori's Favorite Cotton Rope
Midori has been pivotal in the rise of awareness and popularity of Shibari in the US and the West. She wrote the first English language instruction book on the topic, ‘The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage’, and then founded the Rope Dojo in 2002.
Using her “head-heart-hands” methodology she facilitates tackling challenging topics and creating space where people are allowed individual self-exploration. Her incredible passion is fully on display in her transformative small group intensives, including Rope Dojo ®, ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive and The Wanted Man Intensive.
