This is a very intimate, sacred Puja, with all the tradition seeped in 1,000 of years ritual, limited to 30 people, hope YOU will join us
Feel free to bring roses, chocolate, sacred elements for our altar and/or anything else you wish to adore and worship Goddesses with!
Tantra Puja is a sacred ancient ritual that has been practiced for thousands of years. It is a beautiful ceremony of honoring and adoring the Divine that dwells within each of us, and brings us into a profound space of connection and universal Love. This evening’s Puja is dedicated to both men and women. In fact, participants will not know whether they will be in the giving or receiving role until they arrive. Men may end up in the giving role or the receiving role, and the same for the women.
Though the presentation starts off with an introduction to some of the esoteric practices of Tantra to give us a context for the Puja, we will soon switch gears and actually engage in this heartening practice. We will use movement, sound and the five elements, all given to us with ample instruction, enriching each experience throughout the ceremony.
You may find yourself turning inwards and becoming aware of abundant love and innate beauty that is part of your being. In a Tantra Puja, participants in the giving role have the opportunity to express their unconditional love and adoration towards women and men alike. This ceremony opens people's hearts in a way that allows them to see the inner beauty and the Divine within us all.
The participants in the giving role will be instructed in performing an ancient ritual, which is simple in form yet very powerful in practice. As the participants in the receiving role accept the offerings and adoration, they in turn connect with unconditional love and reflect that adoration back to the givers with their presence. Taking part in these Pujas is a very powerful way to reconnect and relate with the feminine and masculine. It is through the practice of unconditional loving that we find that any emptiness or longing we feel within us can be filled with a simple act of giving.
This ancient ritual is thousands of years old. It was brought to life by Tantrikas who implemented the religious and spiritual practices of Yogis and sages into the Art of Adoration, the practice of breathing life and awareness through the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether) in offering to the divine within every living being. We will offer fire, incense, roses, water, chocolate and more in adoration and worship of our divine Goddesses.
Women, Devis, though not required, you are welcome to dress for the evening – perhaps adorn yourself with jewelry you feel most happy in, or wear the scarf you love that you can’t wear to work. It is your evening; indulge yourself as you wish, but please be comfortable.
Men, Shiva, though not required, you are welcome to dress for the evening too. Think of the times the goddesses in your lives had asked you to dress a certain way for their pleasure – well, this may be an opportunity to do just that, but please be comfortable.

Testimonials from recent Pujas: "Tonight's event, the most meaningful for me, was hearing the men's message to women. This was so deeply healing for me, I felt it was multi-dimensional level healing and also intergenerational healing, and past life healing as well. It meant so so much to me, to hear men apologize for conquering women and closing their heart due to pride. I've spent most of my energy dodging being conquered by men, with the longing to be recognized as an individual, but this has often come off as defended and with ego. I am gifted now to relax into myself, trust myself, and find safety within. And collaborate with men, instead of defending or trying to overcome them." ~ Maria "The puja was tons of fun and it was a totally beautiful experience where we got to celebrate the feminine divine in our fellow women. It was a wonderful heart-opening evening. Thank you!" ~ Steve

"It was so great to be honored unconditionally as a goddess -- going back to being a mere mortal woman is gonna be hard! This all inspires me to be a goddess every day! Mortals, step aside -- a goddess walks on earth!" ~ Christine
