Step into a world of acceptance and sensation where all of you is welcome. Each person is invited into magical connections to expand your experience/capacity of giving and receiving. The ritual begins the moment you enter as you are celebrated, seen and adored for ALL you are.

This evening’s ceremony is dedicated to all genders. In fact, participants will not know whether they will be in the giving or receiving role until they arrive. We will use movement, sound and the five elements, all given to us with ample instruction, enriching each experience throughout the evening. You may find yourself turning inwards and becoming aware of abundant love and innate beauty that is part of your being. 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 rituals is a very powerful way to reconnect and relate with all aspects of ourselves. 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 those who implemented 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 essence. We welcome you to reclaim your space and powerful place in the world as we unveil your deepest core. You will leave enchanted having fallen more deeply in love with YOU.

With open hearts and deep connection you will be "rebirthed" from a place of complete vulnerability and fullness as you choose to wake up to YOU!

This is a non-sxxual experience and welcomes people of all races, faiths, orientations and is open to singles who will rotate or couples who want to stay together. Love Exchange: $69 a person

"Heart opening, will make you cry, have your energy flow through every pore, try it on "Not knowing" what to expect upon entering this illuminated room, I found myself being honored and revered in the most sacred way. I left feeling most loved. Thank you for the gift of myself""

A very supportive group to encourage claiming our full freedom and outrageous loveliness"

"Don't ask, just go!! Serenity, grace, and fullness await"

"I saw myself as a person capable of loving someone and being loved, realized my mom and dad ARE proud of me, I see in me the person I was always meant to be"

"Sending out big hugs to Monique Darling for hosting such a beautiful Ceremony. You know, we all live in a world in which we are over worked and often under-appreciated. This ritual was an opportunity to have one's heart filled up with unconditional love. It was a transformative event, and I highly recommend it to everyone, whether you are woo-woo like me or not. Together we practiced giving and receiving non-sensual adoration. For example, we bathed each other's feet, fed each other chocolate, and showered words of affirmation on each other. We also opened up our hearts to speak vulnerable truths. At one point, we were invited to let go of something we no longer needed. I lit a small candle, and into it I whispered the words, "I let go of the need to be right." And then with one breath, I blew out the flame and let it go!" ~ Gayle Roberts, San Francisco

"Wow, the Adoration Ceremony was so much more powerful than I imagined. I arrived nervous, shy, and unsure of what might happen, and I emerged filled with gratitude, radiance, joy, and many new friends. Thank you Monique, for this incredible gift"

"Monique's Adoration Ceremony was an experience to remember. Allowing Sacred Space for all to express themselves in whatever ways they needed to heal and come into their own sacred divinity."

"The Art of Adoration Ceremony created a nurturing environment that invited so much release. I feel like parts of my soul have been born again"
