Lightworkers who play in the Dark

Lightworkers who play in the Dark

Lightworkers are healers who transmute darkness into light. They are those who walk among us who make you feel better, just from being in their presence. Can a Dominatrix really be a Lightworker? Yes - if she is playing consciously, in service to the well-being of her submissives. If a Domme can see and accept her subs for all of who they are, if she can meet them in their darkness and celebrate it with them, she can transmute pain into ecstacy, shame into acceptance, fear into love. This is the role and mission of The Evolutionary Dominatrix™. BDSM is an artform, healing modality and energy exchange relationship that is widely misunderstood and misrepresented in the media as abusive, comical or sick. People judge or ridicule that which they do not understand. Representations of kink for the purpose of entertainment don't do justice to the beauty and totality of this unique connection, based on trust and mutual respect. In this podcast, Mistress Damiana Chi, Ph.D., provides a glimpse into the real world of BDSM, kink and erotic domination and the intricacies of the lives of people who live in it. These are usually intelligent people with a high level of self-awareness and psychological health. They are professionals, parents, artists, technicians...people you know and talk to on a daily basis. Here, they will have open and honest conversations about why BDSM is such a big part of their lives and how they benefit from this unique lifestyle. Mistress Damiana is a professional and lifestyle dominatrix who has held a full-time practice for over 2 decades at her elegantly-appointed BDSM studio in Los Angeles, the Chi Temple. She holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, a Masters degree in counseling psychology, and a Bachelors degree in behavioral sciences. She is also a certified sexologist, specializing in kink-centered life coaching. Mistress Damiana is the founder The Evolutionary Dominatrix™ Academy, in which she personally mentors pro and lifestyle Dommes, in all parts of the world online, in the art of Conscious Female Domination with her self-developed psychologically-based methodology. The marriage of her psychological background and passion for the BDSM arts and D/s dynamics gave birth to her evolutionary teachings, taking FemDom to a new level of excellence, connection and joy. Mistress Damiana is also the creator of Conscious Kink Community – a private social network that is exclusive to personally-vetted members only who are a right fit for this special community. These are kinksters who share a like-minded consciousness about being respectful and supportive of one another, in a safe container where we can share and connect about anything kink related. Connect with Mistress Damiana Chi, Ph.D. at and on most social media platforms at @damianachiphd. Her lectures and interviews can be seen on YouTube.

The following is a recorded interview that I did with 6 sub coaches who staff my Evolutionary Dominatrix Academy. I call them sub coaches because they are submissives who work alongside me in the Academy to coach my students to teach them about the submissive mindset. Submissive psychology is a huge component of my unique FemDom training program, and the personal insight that my sub coaches bring to the education is invaluable. The...

In this episode, I have a conversation with my slave, little dickie. The D/s relationship that I have with dickie has been one of the most unpredictable and fulfilling ones I’ve ever experienced. It really taught me how little I knew about how deep and diverse D/s relationships can be. If it weren’t for kink, I probably would not have the good fortune of knowing and appreciating the many beautiful souls who have touched m...

Golden showers, water sports, piss play, and golden nectar toilet training…these are all different names for basically the same thing – urine play, which is such a hot and sexy topic, and a super popular fetish!  In this interview with 4 of my personal subs, we break down why this is so hot for each one of them personally, and how does it make them feel dominated.  I chose the 4 of them specifically because they...

This interview with a recovering paypig (also called a finsub or a financial domination addict) is a really important one, and the first of its kind. We hope that everyone in the BDSM community will listen to this episode and have it be a real wake up call to what is happening to all these people who are being damaged by the people who are exploiting them for selfish gain. This interview will help to humanize paypigs, make FinDomme...

“I was just wondering what advice you might have for someone who has trouble expressing their kink side for a number of years and doesn’t really think they are going down the right avenues and just wants to delve a bit deeper into the BDSM community but doesn’t really know where to start.”
