Student Testimonials

"To be perfectly honest, it has taken me months to write this review of the Academy because it is incredibly difficult to put into words the impact the Academy has had in my life over the course of the last year. Looking back on my experience with the Academy, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I was honored to have been accepted into the Academy, and now having graduated - I hold that honor in higher reverence. 

Mistress Damiana holds an immense depth and breadth of knowledge, and the beautiful desire to share that knowledge. The thoughtful course structure created by Mistress Damiana provides a strong foundation to grow alongside each of the weekly coaching calls. She has taken an incredible amount of knowledge and has distilled it down in a way that is manageable and memorable, communicating both the craft and art form of becoming and growing as a Dominatrix. 

One of the most unique experiences of the Academy was the opportunity to learn from the sub coaches. The direct feedback was incredibly valuable - I am so grateful for the trust and vulnerability the subs extended throughout the entire course. This course would not be the same without their contributions.

The course also would not be the same without the amazing community that Mistress Damiana has curated. I felt so incredibly alone not only in my search for knowledge, but also in finding a space where I felt like I belonged and could show my true full self before I found the Academy. Mistress Damiana has created a beautiful space for community - for each of us to express ourselves and be vulnerable throughout our learning experience.

The Evolutionary Dominatrix Academy is ever-changing, ever-growing. Mistress Damiana continues to respond to the changing landscape of our world and the BDSM community with compassion, creativity, and hope. To have been accepted into her community is an honor, one that changed the course of my life in absolutely wonderful ways.

In short, I can’t recommend The Evolutionary Academy enough. You will get more than you bargained for, in the best way imaginable."

"The Evolutionary Dominatrix Academy has been more than I could have ever imagined! Life changing!
Mistress Damiana Chi is phenomenal and brilliant. She is very knowledgeable in her craft with a true passion for it. Certainly, a legend in the industry! Her knowledge and transparency with the students brought so much to the table.

The sub coaches are the absolute best, you could not hand pick better ones. Everyone in the Academy shared so much valuable information and being so open brought so much knowledge, information, help, answers, and guidance.

 Without the Academy I don’t know that I would have had the confidence to put Myself out there to start advertising and taking on clients as a Professional Dominatrix. When I decided I wanted to go Pro I knew I needed help transforming Myself into the best Pro Dominatrix I could be as well as focusing on proper practice/training and safety. Verbal was always a bit lacking for Me and I was so happy to find that the Academy had sections solely focused on verbal skills and language. Through guidance from the Academy, putting together scenes and the flow of scenes became so much easier for Me instead of struggling with what to do or where to go next. My skills and arsenal grew tremendously and I found new love for things I may not have found without the Academy.

Whether the goal is Pro, Lifestyle or just Empowerment as a Woman, The Evolutionary Dominatrix Academy is a must!! It is not just a course to learn from, it is a FAMILY with so much support it will blow your mind!

With Love and Many Thanks!"

"I have been graciously blessed with the knowledge that Mistress Damiana has passed along to her students in The Evolutionary Dominatrix Academy.

This course was top notch and every woman deserves to take it.  The Academy has helped me in so many aspects of both my personal and professional life.  It has helped me gain my confidence back, empower me in many ways and enrich my life.  I have never taken a class that was more fulfilling and so much fun.  Mistress Damiana is so passionate about the Dominatrix craft and a wonderful mentor to those going through their own Domme journey.  I am so proud to call her my “Domme Mother”.

The Chi Temple subs are world class, they are just as passionate in helping teach this craft.  It has been an honor for me to have learned  from the Chi Temple subs as well; they have a wealth of knowledge to share.

Mistress Damiana has created a wonderful community within her Academy.  I believe her calling is to leave a legacy of the true ethical and consensual Dominatrix craft and to teach the rest of the world about what BDSM is really all about while trying to make this world a better place for all.

My heartfelt gratitude to you always. 

With much love and virtual hugs,

"Mistress Damiana is a gracious, insightful, and skillful teacher. Her vast knowledge of psychology and her passion for BDSM is evident. It was her educational background and years in the profession that attracted me to her coaching offerings and lead me to this workshop. She clearly developed a unique dominatrix program that is highly comprehensive and includes both instructional and practical education. This immersive online workshop was attended by a variety of students that ranged from novice BDSM lifestylers to pre-professional dominatrixes of all ages and backgrounds. It was clear that each one of us gained deeper knowledge and understanding of BDSM and a greater appreciation for the dominatrix art form. It was particularly helpful to hear the feedback from Mistress Damiana's submissives. They were extremely kind, thoughtful, and engaging. Additionally, they were so willing to offer their deep feelings on what BDSM means to them and how it makes them feel. They added an invaluable component to the coursework and practical skills demonstrations. If you want to go pro or just want to explore this side of yourself with a partner, please consider taking this workshop. You will learn an extraordinary amount of valuable information and practical skills training during this weekend workshop. I look forward to continued professional coaching with Mistress Damiana.!"

"I discovered Mistress Damiana’s Dominatrix Archetype Workshop online as I was searching for a mentor to assist in my transition into becoming a Pro Domme. Mistress Damiana’s professional demeanor, credentials and experience confirmed my desire to attend the workshop.

From the onset, it was evident that Mistress Damiana is a charismatic, highly intelligent and encouraging woman with a gracious energy and passion for her craft. Her meticulous attention to detail and supportive nature were demonstrated throughout the course as she continually engaged with everyone to ensure all group members had opportunity to participate and felt safe and inspired to do so.

The workshop is perfectly organized with a balance theoretical knowledge, practical skills, engaging demonstrations and individual practice with submissive participants and helpful feedback.  The members of our group were positive, encouraging and provided insightful comments and discussion throughout. Mistress Damiana has designed the course with consideration of all learning styles so that it can benefit everyone who has the desire to deepen their knowledge of BDSM.

One of the most powerful aspects of the experience was witnessing the deep admiration and sincere respect that each of our group members have for each other. Mistress Damiana and the Chi Temple submissives’ established dynamic most certainly contributed to this energy which created a non judgemental, progressive environment for everyone. The diversity of our group members experiences gave an amazing opportunity for perspective and I feel that it enhanced the learning opportunities beyond the course material. It was incredibly beautiful to be a part of everyone sharing their personal stories of their journeys of navigating life with the kink lifestyle. This openness enabled us to connect and served to strengthen our peer communication.

The Chi Temple submissives that were chosen by Mistress Damiana to assist us were absolutely first class, experienced and exemplary model subs. Their dedication, commitment, and continued support in our growth as Dominants is amazingly kind and admirable. It was a pleasure and privilege to work together. This served as another testament to the care that Mistress Damiana has taken to ensure the quality of our education.

Overall, I felt that the value of the D.A. Workshop far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this workshop with confidence to anyone with an inclination or curiosity about becoming a Dominatrix. I look forward to the advanced workshop in the future and in the interim will continue to practice the skills learned in this workshop!

"When I signed up for the Dominatrix Archetype workshop I was expecting to brush up on skills that I thought I already had a good grasp on. What I got was much more than I expected. This intensive hands-on workshop is suitable for any woman looking to gain confidence in their personal, professional, or kinky life. In my case, a budding pro-domme, I gained a polishing of my innate abilities, a better awareness of the psychological aspects of domination, and a refinement of technical skills. Most importantly, and unexpected, was a lasting feeling of camaraderie and closeness with my wonderful classmates and the outstanding subs that were there to give feedback and answer any and all questions. Mistress Damiana Chi is extremely knowledgeable and a very good teacher. I can attest that my time there was an experience I will never forget and I cannot wait to go back for the advanced workshop!""
