the 2023 Boundless RETREAT: CLASSES WITH michael Sims & Lisa Grace

JD of Two Knotty Boys


Michael has been a professional body modification artist for 21 years practicing piercing, branding, and scarification. Michael was first introduced to body modification in an official way when Modern Primitives came out in 1989, and as a freshman in college it opened his world. From there, he got his hands on all of Gauntlet’s PFIQ magazines and started piercing. His journey met its apex when he found his first Body Play magazine with an ad by Fakir for his piercing school. He studied with Fakir in 1992 and later taught at his school. These early years were the beginning of events that have shaped his life and introduced Michael to a community of amazing people.

Lisa trained for 7 years in Advaita Tantra (non-duality) and has been a Senior Faculty member at The Shakti Shiva Academy since 2019. She combines the wisdom of sexual shadow integration into the modalities of Transformational Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hakomi Somatic Therapy. Lisa is currently passionate about integrating all of the above through The Yoga of Intimacy practice with respect to sacred sexuality and the development of exquisite consciousness in this full bodied journey of being human.
