6-9 WHITE TANTRIC DEEP FEAST
6-7 Dragon Room "Deep Feast Warm Up" (dinner guests only)
Dinner ceremony starts at 6 with energetic ice-breakers and guided meditations as we gently drop into an ever-opening heart space. Dinner will be served from 7-9.
THE WHITE TANTRIC DEEP FEAST is a sumptuous celebration and exploration of the senses. A magickal dining ceremony for communion, connection and loving through the sharing of delectable delights that make our taste buds dance, and our hearts open.
The Deep Feast involves sharing gourmet food with the other souls present, one by one, as everybody feeds others instead of themselves, experiencing the food every so slowly with all five senses as we deepen our connection with those around us, and with our own hearts, through giving and receiving. Communication is non-verbal. The vibe is playful, sensual and innocent, non-sexual, as we experience nurturing one another with love and sweetness and joy. Relaxing music, sacred poetry, and gentle facilitation all help to create a magickal experience of sacred bliss. Couples may chose to experience the dinner as a twosome or couples and singles may chose to mingle in community.
Mystery schools have been participating in intentional feasts as sacred rites for millenarian - the idea of the Christian Eucharist comes from these rites. Ania Fizyta, love coach and director of the Institute for Optimal Living (www.optimalliving.us) will guide the ceremony in the heart-opening style passed down to her by her teacher.

DJ SOL RISING fuses many influences; global electronic beats, Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, Reggae, and many forms of electronic dance music. He loves to bridge cultures, linking underground hip-hop artists with traditional Eastern Vedic wisdom to his mix. The purpose of making music is to uplift humanity’s vibration, transcending mind and emotions to create the remembrance of the ultimate truth of who we are. A journey to India in the company of saints as old as 300 years connected him to his soul and a passion to create music with both positive energies and messages for uplifting the planet. Sol Rising moved to the Bay Area in 2008 and produced his debut album, I AM SOUL. His stint as a DJ landed him in articles by major newspapers such as The Washington Post, in magazines such as the DC based InnerLoop, and in TV appearances on stations like Fox Sportsnet. He became a YouTube sensation, drawing around 980,000 hits. www.djsolrising.com
DULCE VITA has held down numerous DJ residencies based in San Francisco. In 2006, she was proud to be selected as the first female to be affiliated with ‘OPULENT TEMPLE’ (the infamous large-scale sound camp at Burning Man featuring global talent on over 250,000 watts). In 2009, she was invited to wobble out with ‘CALIFORNIA DUBSTEP REPUBLIC’, a collective of performers who provided the first ever Dubstep float in San Francisco’s equivalent of a large scale EDM festival like Love Parade. That year also debuted her solo event production alias, under the apt pseudonym: ‘DVANT GARDE’. DV created a new breed of event (known as ‘Womper Womb’) showcasing dubstep, glitch, and breaks with all female DJ talent from Burning Man. In 2010, she gained a new monthly residency with ‘BELOW ZERO’, featuring downtempo, chillout, trip-hop, and IDM. www.dulcevita.dj
DJ JOCELYN (Club Exotica) By communing with the vixen within, Jocelyn channels this energy, adds some sub-bass and creates a gypsy infused sauce of luscious whomp. Like a soft caress down the back of your neck, delicate twinklings of sultry highs lull dancers into a sonic womb, only to be enticed back into throbbing convulsions by yet another one of her glitched out gypsy/latin and tropical infused bassy beats. Increasing the chance of your evening’s coupling with that of sheer wild fun and yum, her sexy, guttural, grinding, liquid-lithe mixes, driving your consciousness deep into your hips, while you move with her to an entrancing beat. http://soundcloud.com/dj-jocelyn-1
ERIC MONKHOUSE is one of the Bay Area's leading conscious beat Djs mixing dubstep, breaks, hip hop, progressive, tribal and tech house into his sets. If music is the Universal language then London native, Eric is surely multilingual. It is this universal appeal that has allowed him to speak to so many people without ever having to say a word. His ability to capture sounds and emit them so expressively is a gift. Music has always been a priority in Eric’s life; anyone who witnesses him gracing the decks can attest to this. He can turn a careful observer into a delirious dancer through the raw emotion and passion in his music. Music is a language; it is a means of connectivity, intimacy and communication and he has brilliantly captured and shared this with his fans. Eric is creating quite a stir amongst the conscious dance floors and yoga studios on the west coast and in Europe. www.ericmonkhouse.com
MIKEY LION's life revolves around dancing and making people dance. It all began with Wu-Tang & Daft Punk. What started as an obsession with underground Hip-Hop, turntable scratchin', and quick fingers at the age of 13, shit flipped the script for Mikey Lion during a trip to the top of the Daft Punk Pyramid. Heavily influenced by a 4 month DJ residency at super club Sala Razzmatazz in Barcelona, Mikey's style has evolved into a ride of tech-house grooves, deep tribal drums, and everything that makes the booty shake. What moves people is the name of the game. Determined to bring the European sound back to the Southern California scene is what spawned the creation of Jungle, a forward thinking deep-tropical-tech party focused on pushing the dankness to the masses. www.soundcloud.com/mikeylion
