The Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ Certificate Course

The Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course is a comprehensive foundational course in female dominance, including history, psychology, practices and know-how, taught by Anne O Nomis. (World-expert in Dominance studies, author of The History & Arts of the Dominatrix book, and founder of Villa Domme.)

The course is suitable for aspiring pro-Dommes, lifestyle Mistresses, kinksters, creatives, and those more broadly who have a keen interest in sexuality and in exploring Dominatrix history, knowledge and arts. Past students have included psychologists, sex workers, performance artists, doctors, creatives, corporate managers, yoga teachers, university students and more.

Upon completing the course and graduating with the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™certificate, students will have gained:

  • An in-depth understanding of the ancient roots of Dominance rituals and history
  • Consent frameworks of SSC and RACK, boundaries, safety, checking-in during play
  • Understanding of the different practices of Dominance, BDSM, kinks and fetishes
  • Enhanced confidence and somatic understanding of the Dominatrix through embodiment
  • Knowledge of psychologies of different roles and identities (including sub, slave, masochist, etc)
  • Skills and practicum of "doing it" across all the Dominatrix's Seven Realm Arts™

Students used to have to fly to Anne from around the world into Melbourne or to Villa Domme in Europe to take her well-regarded course. However during Covid-19 during lockdown, Anne came out from behind her mask for the first time - to film her classes for her students unable to learn in person. A professional videographer and editor were put to work, producing this high quality and in-depth online course. This enables students to be able to benefit from Anne’s deep knowledge and insight from the comfort of their own home.

It is recommended to take the course over a period of 8 weeks. Each week has a filmed class of around 1 hour, 30 mins “ish” (varying in length slightly each week), supported by additional readings and homework to enhance knowledge and practice.

Course commitment: Approximately 3 hours x 8 classes = 24 hours

As a bonus, you will receive a 50 minute Mistress Electra Amore live Zoom Q&As if you so wish to take up this opportunity, to ask any question from the highly-regarded senior Dominatrix (who was Anne's own teacher). Your questions may relate to professional or lifestyle Domination, advanced activities or equipment, practical know-how from someone who has spent a lifetime of knowledge of the Dominatrix.

  • “Me and my husband are into lifestyle BDSM. I have been dominating him for number of years now, and before I’ve met him, I was a dominatrix as well. However, he came across Ms. Anne O Nomis - Seven Realm Arts class and I ended up signing in. All I can say, it was one of the best thing I have done ! Overall, I enjoyed the class very knowledgeable and professionally done! Strongly recommend!! There is no such a thing as enough knowledge, the more the better it is, especially in the BDSM world ! Ms. Anne O Nomis is brilliant in her punctuality, professionalism and easy to communicate with. If you are looking for becoming your best version of yourself in BDSM world, Seven Realm Arts is a must !!”

    - Lady L

  • “Her years of international practical experience plus the thorough and historical research she has done shine through her teachings. Anne can not only reveal to you the hands on skills needed to safely and playfully embody the Dominatrix, but the psychological roots behind the desires the Dominatrix serves. She also highlights the ancient context of this role and its place within society, which lifts the veil on how necessary and sacred this practice really is. Her course The Seven Realm Arts is THE place to start if you are curious to embody power in the bedroom and beyond.”.

    – The Procuress

  • “Anne is a wonderful teacher who presents the material in a structured/academic yet approachable manner. It's clear that she has multi-faced real-life experience in the subjects covered and she's obviously invested serious thought into developing and delivering the course. Anne is an engaging speaker and I found all of the course materials (both core and supplemental) to be very informative. I even enjoyed learning about activities and interests for which I don't have a penchant. This course is well worth the investment of money and time necessary to be an active participant in your own learning. I can't wait to take another of Anne's courses!”

    - Mistress Alejandra Leder

  • “Anne’s Seven Realms Arts course was a privilege to be a part of. Her knowledge is extensive and so interesting. You can definitely tell that she loves what she does and enjoys sharing her experience with others. She was happy to answer any questions to ensure that we got what we needed out of the course. I look forward to doing more courses and workshops with Anne as I really love her teaching style and she makes us all feel like we can own our dominance in our individual ways”.

    – Mistress of Melbourne

  • “Anne is an engaging & generous teacher. As a bit of a newbie, I felt both challenged and held during the course - its depth and breadth has given me many pathways I can now choose to walk down, along with an awesome community I feel supported by! If you’re thinking about taking this course, of course follow your truth, but I promise this teaching is second to none.”

    - Anonymous

  • “I cannot recommend Anne’s courses highly enough. Not only have I gained a rich theoretical understanding that most Dommes only gain after many years of professional experience, but also the practical skills to implement this knowledge in both personal and professional play. My understanding of myself and my own desires is now much greater and I also feel much more confident in meeting the needs of my play partners. You could not hope for a more generous and passionate teacher, it is a delight to learn from Anne. Thank you!”

    - Mistress Ondine

Can I enrol as a male sub / switch / or partner of a Mistress?

In short - yes. Anne practices under a philosophy of "Large Heart, open mind" to all genders and sexualities. Anne just notes the Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course is informed by a Dominatrix tradition which has tended to be more FemDom orientated and for a largely male sub-identified clientele and which has influenced some aspects such as "CBT", and also for women stepping into Dominance coming head-to-head with gendered stigma and language which is discussed in the course. However Anne absolutely adores and welcomes diverse attendees including those who identify as non-binary, male-identified subs / slaves, etc. Anne notes that it must be understood that it is a predominantly FemDom course in terms of the knowledge tradition being taught having been derived from Dominatrix learning and practices. Anne specifically teaches around "Inanna's people" and discusses the people of the Goddess Inanna including people of gender non-binary and transgender, sexual submissives, and so forth.

Can I book Zoom calls with Anne O Nomis directly?

All of the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course classes are taught by Anne O Nomis, and the bonus Zoom Q&As 50 minutes is with Anne's own teacher Mistress Electra Amore .

Anne is filming for TV, appearing on Sky History channel, writing her new book, giving International talks on her new work on the Ki™, teaching Villa Domme in Italy and Portugal, and all the while juggling her young daughter.

In order to offer a Zoom Q&As of 50 mins to teach current and new students, Anne has senior Mistress Electra Amore, who is your lineage "grandmother" (in the sense being your teacher Anne's teacher). She is a lifetime career Dominatrix with vast experience. She is sensual, warm, open-minded, hugely knowledgable, safety-conscious Mistress, and has a wicked laugh. There could be no better person in the world for the role - no exaggeration, from Anne's perspective. She is honoured and grateful that Mistress Electra Amore would come on board, and it keeps Anne's students connected with the lineage line through Anne's own teacher.

Mistress Electra Amore will be the point-of-contact for Anne's students while Anne completes her new book and TV filming, and work for The Ki™.

Anne will continue to teach in-person at Villa Domme and select events, as she is able to work into her busy schedule.

Can I go straight into Domming after graduating the course?

The The Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course is a foundational course, and teaches Dominatrix history, embodying Dominance, psychologies of bottoms, and goes through each of the Seven Realm Arts™.

Some who complete the course go straight into Domming, depending on their degree of confidence and practice, while others seek further training to gain additional knowledge on running sessions, or on particular advanced activities.

Over the years since running the course, the most common path has been taking the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ as the foundation and then supplementing it with some 1-on-1 training in particular activities the Mistress wishes to specialise in, and/or gaining confidence putting the practices together into sessions. Of the women who undertook this option (since 2015) - the majority are practising now still years on, and amongst the top regarded in their craft.

Some also took a different route of undertaking a professional internship in a dungeon house alongside or after finishing the course, and "hit the ground running" with months taken off their normal length of apprenticeship in recognition of their training in Anne's course. (Anecdotally, a graduate was credited with 8 months off her one year internship for recognition of her prior learning in taking the Seven Realm Arts course, and spent the remainder of her apprenticeship in advanced practice of suspension and needle play, etc.)

Many houses are now sending their apprentices to do Anne's Seven Realm Arts™ course, before or simultaneous to doing their house training.

Some existing pro-Dommes have also taken the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™, to supplement their knowledge or for a different lens on their practices, and some flown out to study under Anne at Villa Domme, to learn by Anne's unique approach.

There is no Dominatrix board of authority who governs when someone may practice or call themselves "Mistress". Ultimately it comes down to a personal judgment call of when you feel ready, the degree of complexity and nature of what you wish to practice or specialise in, and ensuring you stay within your level of competency.

For those completing the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ and wanting further advanced training tailored to your individual needs, this is possibly - by routes of 1-on-1 Mentorship, small group training, Advanced courses and Villa Domme.

There isn't a set ending point for learning, and like most craft professions - it is always possible to do continuing education. There's always more one could practice at, learn or add to their skill set or knowledge base, a new approach or lens for understanding.

However the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course is unique in its depth and breadth of learning, and provides an ideal foundation across all the Seven Realm Arts of the Dominatrix's practices.

Is the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course better than _________ (such-and-such's) course?

We would never wish to speculate on some other Mistress's individual approach or course. It's a highly subjective view to rate a person's course or approach, with reputations (and egos) at stake.

What can be said is that we have run anonymous surveys for graduates of the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course, to rate the course and provide feedback and make any improvements. Their feedback has been rating the course as "Excellent", and it has a 4.8 star out of 5 star average review score. Over 300 students have taken the course, and dungeon houses are sending apprentices to take the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course.

For those who were taking multiple different courses, they rated the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course as "better than" other courses they had taken. (Of those who answered the survey question.)

However perhaps the best judges are those who have actually taken the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course. We recommend if in doubt - contacting one of the myriad students of Anne's. You can find mention of them taking her course on their Twitter, Instagram and other socials, as well as other courses, so you can independently check their opinion and comparison.

We are confident you'll find the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course will receive very favourable feedback, and perceived as good value for the depth of learning it offers.

Why is the price cheap / expensive, etc?

The Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course cost some $50,000 to film and produce, using a professional videographer and editor, without Anne's time added in.

The cost of the course reflects the expenses, knowledge, expertise and offers good value for its depth and breadth of offering. Anne O Nomis has been teaching the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course since 2015, and her course and method is well-known and regarded around the world.

We are aware of far more expensive courses and we are also aware of far cheaper courses of lower quality and short flighty 10 minute tutorials.

We believe the pricing is appropriate, fair and offers good value to students, and "just right" in terms of its depth of content, training and pricing for what Anne's students should be learning.

I'm not sure whether I should take the course?

If you are to-ing and fro-ing about whether to take the Dominatrix Seven Realm Arts™ certificate course or not, Anne O Nomis recommends that you don't take the course until you are ready.

In her experience, those who are uncertain or not quite ready, tend to have issues and drop out or stall during their course. Whereas those who are ready, motivated and enthusiastic, do really well and lap up all the teachings and depth of knowledge being passed on to them.

There is an expression, "when the student is ready, the teacher appears".

So when you are ready, then you come and take the course. Then and only then.
