IN POST PRODUCTION
A short BDSM documentary that explores the workshop culture in Berlin and focuses on conscious BDSM practitioner Caritia.
Ritual + Worship is a character study that tracks the practise of Caritia as she prepares for her upcoming workshop, ritual and worship. We learn about her journey through life and how her various disciplines coalesce into the perfect symbiosis of spiritual, ritual and mindful practice.

The Workshop in Detail:
From the website:
We participate in routines every day. We consume, waste, devour, take, tease, abuse, wear, tear, talk, break rules, as well as follow instructions. We are constantly in the manner of doing. Whether this is habit formed, socially pressured, peer expected, the reasons are many and varied, with little time to consider the ‘why’ of an act. Would we perhaps look at each of these parts of our day differently, if we valued the essentiality of these elements in our lives.
This work is about reclaiming rites of passage. A moment to pause. Honouring the beauty of simple task. The worship of a passion. Surrendering into receiving. The pursuit of giving. Discovering the meditation in the menial. Respecting rules and following of a guide. The jubilation of a body content in it’s chosen place. Our bodies have much to share, often we are too busy doing, rather than listening. So it is in our lives and connections.
In this time we will work together with the aim to reignite the value of each moment. We will explore the essence of tasks requested and undertaken. What supports each of us through the mundane? A smile from one whom we admire, perhaps. The approval of a job well done. Acceptance of an act not favoured, for the chance to gaze in the eyes of the tormentor.
We will dive into what our natures, cycles and biorhythms, attending to what is waiting to be expressed or exposed. What are our wants. Dare we speak our inner truth. Inflaming our devotion to live in the beauty of now. Seeking the pleasure in the details without religious dogma or dictatorship. Without guilt or shame, embracing what we love (our quirks and kinks). Invoking our personal alchemy and delving into those things which bring us to life. The erotic pleasure of serving (giving) and being served (receiving). Fearlessly demanding, courageously taking, unquestioningly accepting, continuously committed to reaching our core. Discovering the joy, self confidence and self belief those acts can bring.
Through experimentation with ritual, honouring and worship we will ride to other levels of ourselves. Appreciating the structure, as well as the restructuring of our boundaries and personal limits. Giving way to the freedom to truly breath and be our authentic selves, supported and without judgement. The essence is self exploration with your follow participants being your mirrors.
This workshop can include exercises in meditation, breath and vocal work, icebreakers, movement and grounding exercises. Primal play, explorations into power and energy exchange, acceptance and surrender, sensation play, gender dynamics, gender fluidity, open attention, presence and listening. BDSM elements will also be introduced and can include D/s, role play, pain/pleasure play, sensory deprivation, bondage, humiliation.
This workshop will work with R.A.C.K principals and an open dialogue regarding consent.
Morgana Muses will be making her co-presenter déébut in this work. Together we aim to provide a safe, supportive and fun space to experiment and explore the boundaries of ritual and worship.
