“The Journey of a Master”
We do not become Masters overnight. For most of us, it has been a long journey to find our calling, and discover out true heart and spirit. And when we do, then the journey to learn the nuts and bolts of being a good Master just begins and that learning process never ends. But, more often than not, the struggles emerge.
The balancing act between our lives as a Master and the so-called “normal life” become a clear challenge. How priorities are set? How out can we be?
Join Master Taíno in an honest and frank discussion on the journey of the Master. You most likely will realize that you are not alone in your own struggles throughout your journey.
Master Taíno is very active in the Leather Community in general and in the Master/slave and BDSM communities in particular. He has taken leadership roles in several organizations and he travels nationwide. He has been a member of the Washington, DC Chapter for the Defenders Leather Levi Club since 1993. He founded MAsT Washington in April 1999 and he is the longest serving MAsT director in the country. To fulfill his commitment on education, Master Taíno founded MTTA, Inc., a non-profit educational organization that includes several programs: MTTA Academy, an educational program aimed to train Masters and slaves through weekend training events; the Master/slave Conference, held annually during Labor Day Weekend in Washington, DC.; the Mentors Service to match Mentors and mentees in the M/s community, the Master/slave History Project, and the Master/slave Development Center. MTTA also has two MAsT chapters under its organization (MAsT Washington and MAsT DC Pan).
MAsT is a community-inclusive support group for individuals involved, or interested, in Master/slave or other power exchange dynamics. It is intended as an educational resource and forum for like-minded individuals to come together once a month for discussion of issues of concern, to share ideas, and to gain/share knowledge of M/s dynamics. MAsT meetings are not about SM skills/techniques or sex but focus on the relationship of the Owner/property or Master/slave dynamic.
MAsT Metro NY is open to all adults (18+) interested in consensual power exchange relationships. We are comprised of members of all genders and orientations, and we encourage all who are interested in power exchange dynamics to attend and participate in our meetings. There is no requirement that you currently be in an M/s, D/s, or power exchange relationship to attend meetings.
