Murphy Blue

Blue-webbed1Always prepared with a smile, a joke, and a length of rope, Murphy Blue has been bringing his kink knowledge and signature style wherever he could since the turn of the century. A self-claimed “American Rigger”, Murphy tries to focus not just on the *hows* of tying, but the frequently forgotten *whys*. The interplay of people and energy through rope and gestures is something that should be passed along, and Murphy does his best to assist with that.

While most well known for his unique ropework, creative performances, bouncy demeanor, and intense love for Transformers, “The Blue” is also a scholar of different kinky paths, a skilled photographer, a budding writer, a practicing energy worker of multiple traditions, and a pretty darn good dancer. He is on a constant search for more information about the art of Rope, experience different fetish environments and learn new skills. Murphy travels the country with the lovely ladies of “Team Blue”, sharing insight, gaining knowledge, and saving the world, one knot at a time. He has been welcomed to speak at various events and locations, including Shibaricon, TESFest, The Society, Albany Power Exchange, Rochester Kink Society, Black Phoenix, Bound in Boston, Wicked Faire, and others.

There is a tale of him being trapped and his only chance to survive was to suspend multiple women to please a dark council. When asked about this, Murphy only smiles.

Binding to the Energy and Rhythm

In ritual space, each of us feels not only our personal inner beat, but the rhythm of a pulsating whole as all of us come into harmony with one another. Sometimes we find cohesion first as small groups, which then join together to form the whole. Each time a group reaches harmony together, it vibrates at a unique energetic frequency. It’s a powerful reservoir of energy that you can tap into to enhance your experience, and the experience of others, if you can recognize and seize the moment.

This workshop will focus on finding that frequency, tapping into it when you desire it, and keeping that frequency from becoming overwhelming. As a way to experiment with these concepts, we’ll learn a few rope bondage ties that are fun to use when letting yourself be part of the whole. Please either bring a partner you are willing to explore this with or a willingness to be paired up with someone and at least 25-30 ft of rope.
