Quarterly Temple Weekend

We hold ceremonial temple weekends quarterly. Temples are events that have a specific intention and theme. We include ceremony, practices, experiences, and open play. Temple refers to the ancient practices of various cultures that utilize spirit, heart, and sexuality to transform. This is an extremely powerful, pleasurable, and impactful weekend experience!

Tantra

Tantra is the art and practice of being more present and aligned with all areas of your body, psyche, mind, eros, and heart in order to experience deeper connection with self and others. It involves both sensual and sexual practices.

Kink

Kink has many flavors - for us its celebrating the parts of each of us that feel hidden, repressed, taboo, or shamed and bringing them to life through sensual, sexual, and archetype practices/scenes. We play with polarity and turn-on to enhance experience.

Energy

Energy practice is kind of a buzz word (literally lol) - for us energy is important because it gives us access to deeper, more intimate, more pleasurable layers of our experiences in all areas of life including sensuality and sexuality.

Quarterly Temple
(May 24 - 26):

Activation of Power

Quarterly Temple Ceremony & Ritual Event (May 2024)

Theme: Activation of Power

As we enter this new season of the planet and consider the impact of this year, it is important that each of us access our soul power (spirit and body married in heart). As we access, we are invited to engage in our part to play as we allow life itself to flow through us. This temple will be a curated space to support our natural, soul selves by accessing our inner dragon and taking flight more fully. We will engage in individual and group practices that encourage soul based power to come through - power based on the heart with the service of life itself behind us.

Our Invitation:

We have a desire to create a temple culture that involves co-facilitation, co-leadership, and co-creation. We will use this group field to establish the essence of the Temple as we seek connection with the land, the planet, the cosmos, and additional wisdoms. We are inviting you to be a part of this group to take part in a sort of counsel and co-creation. We would like to hold several Zoom meetings to go deeper and get a feel for others involved as well as ways to participate.

We will also be holding our quarterly temple in ceremony on May 24 - 26 of this year. If you are not able to come, we understand but still invite you to be involved through Zoom meetings when available and other future events.
