SPLA Presents Black Diamond Puja
Mon, April 24, 2017, 6:30 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
Join Caroline Carrington & Charlie Glickman for their Black Diamond Puja to sample the sweet, savory & spicy delights that the fusion of Tantra and Kink has to offer. This evening will tantalize your senses, show you new ways to embrace the heart, expand your intimacy and connection skills, all while getting high on energy itself.
Caroline & Charlie will guide you through an evening exploring your heart, energy, sensations, desires, and a deeper connection with yourself and others. We combine the energy & breathwork of Tantra with the dance of power & surrender in Kink/BDSM.
The Black Diamond Puja is an interactive experience where you will have the opportunity to enjoy guided exercises including breath work, energy play, and conscious touch with a a variety of partners through the evening.
You’re invited to explore this modern version of an ancient Tantric ritual as a couple or join as a single to enjoy this Tantric version of speed dating.
This is the perfect place to come and explore Tantra whether you're dipping your toes in for the first time or a seasoned pro!
"On a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being very experienced) - in Kink, I’d give myself a 4. In Tantra, maybe a 1.5. It’s also been a long time since I was deep into the kink scene, so when the prospect of this “Kinky Puja” came up, I was more than a little intrigued. While bdsm always felt like a sacred practice to me, I’d never consciously married it to Tantra, mostly because I’d never been exposed to or involved with Tantric practices. Caroline and Charlie are a dream team, as facilitators. So present, so grounded, so knowledgeable, so heart-centered, so HOT. They weaved and held such a lovely container for our group to drop into — invoking both a sense of sacred devotion but also play and pleasure! And Caroline’s VOICE! It’s not just the accent (♥), but the clarity, the cadence, the timbre - was all so wonderfully hypnotic, like we were being guided into a group trance. Such a great group of people, too. I felt like anyone could have “lent a hand” at any time and the respect and honoring and playfulness and kinkiness and attention to safety protocols was so present that I was even able to switch from my usual Top role! The energy was intense and real and sweet and CLEAN. I arrived feeling exhausted in body and spirit, but left feeling revitalized and human in the best way. Already bought my tickets for the next one in Sept! Much gratitude for you both and what you bring to the world." - Carmen, San Francisco
"Thanks so much for the lovely puja. It was just what I needed! I've been a bit "out of the loop" since my divorce and felt awkward going to events alone. The ability to sign up and go to this class as a single woman was just perfect for me. And you two held the space exquisitely. Just the right balance of sacred and spice, and completely, completely safe. Perfect!"
~ Dawn Davidson, San Leandro, CA
