Play Temple Weekend

We hold play temple weekends monthly. 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 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 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.

Golden Chakra


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.


April 26 - 28

We will introduce immersive experiences combined with Tantra to deepen the practice. We will end the night with a guided temple.


Saturday day will include instruction and practice around conscious kink archetypes and energies leading into an immersive kink experience partnered or in groups.


Saturday evening will include guided partner and group experiences leading to curated immersive experiences within a temple environment.

What is a temple?

A temple is a practice that has been used by many cultures throughout the ages to create an intention, space, and set of experiences in order to access the divine within us and others through spirit, heart, and sexuality. Specifically, we will engage in practices and exercises that are sensual and erotic in nature throughout the day and engage in open temple play at night in which all types of sexual practice are allowed within consent. We rely on practices related to Tantra (art of connecting spirit with the body via eros, sexuality, and sensuality) and conscious kink (using polarity and magnetism to create eros and turn-on). You will leave temple with a renewed sense of self, others, and the group and plenty to take home with you and experience with your partner(s).

What are the boundaries?

Everything verbally consensual, voluntary, celebratory of all genders, races, ethnicities, and sexual identities; nudity allowed; sensuality and sexuality allowed within own personal boundaries (STARS talk or equivalent recommended;; abide property boundaries.

Where will the event be held?

We hold this event at Wildfern Grove of the Kaleidescopic Community of Buckley, WA, outside of Seattle, WA. This is a beautiful community with yurts, rooms, a hot tub and 30 acres of beautiful forest landscape. A sex positive, nude friendly environment makes this the perfect place to hold these events.
