    Rain and Cross changed my kinky life! I attended “Defining Your Role as a Submissive” with my Master in May and it has been a tremendous help in our understanding of our dynamic together. We also went to “Submissive Training and Development” in August, which was equally awesome. The portion about submissive attributes was a great review of the previous class and the rest was all interesting and useful. I loved how they came at it from so many different angles. I would recommend either one of these classes to doms and subs alike.

    “Defining And Refining Your Role As A Submissive”

    Saturday 21 August 2010 at Northern Exposure [Anchorage, Alaska]

    This class was well put together and cohesive. In seven years of reading and attending classes/conferences, I had not heard this particular take on submission and slavery, and it enriched the information I already possessed, filled some of the gaps I didn’t know existed for me. When I followed the directions of the self-evaluation, it lead me to the solid conclusion that I am, indeed, a slave; it was nice to see others who identify as such with the same graphs as myself.

    Thank you very much Mr. Cross and Rain for opening my eyes just a little bit more to the wide range of manifestations in this awesome lifestyle! 🙂

    Respectfully,
    rajih

    Defining And Refining Your Role As A Submissive
    Saturday 21 August 2010
    I found that the class was well put together. It was informative and had a great perspective. I have always been told that I have to be a slave, submissive or bottom; it is good to know that i can be all of that and more. Since taking your class I have been looking into more about me and who I am. I am not placing myself in a box.

    Thank you for showing me that I can be all the parts of me.

    I attended the class at the Raven on your last night. I have to say I loved the look on her face when she was in pain.
