The Flawed Master and the Imperfect slave: Elevating Your Dynamic Through Vulnerability

The Flawed Master and the Imperfect slave: Elevating Your Dynamic Through Vulnerability — (Open Attendance)
We speak about wanting and needing transparency in order to succeed in our dynamic.  As Masters, we feel driven to be omnipotent, omniscient, and all-powerful.  As slaves, we want to epitomize perfection in all things.  The idea of making mistakes, being flawed, imperfect in any way is anathema.  We don’t wish to show our “ugly parts.” How can we truly have an authority-transfer environment when we don’t entrust all of ourselves to our partner (or show them who we truly are)? How long can we pretend to be “perfect?” How does one serve an “imperfect” and “flawed” Master? How do you serve from a place of disappointment? How does a Master lead from a place of disappointment?

Becoming a fully-faceted self-actualized individual requires having integrity.  Integrity is defined as “knowing and accepting one’s self.” To the extent we hide who we are, we cripple our own capacity to become wholly immersed in our dynamic. “Acceptance” is a two-way street. And, it begins by having the courage to be seen.
