Embodied Connections and Temple Night with Destin, Peter and Monique

  • Hosted by TantraSD
  • Poway, CA -

This will be a very chill, fun, playful event. Come relax. Come smooch. Come play, come watch, all genders, bodies, and orientations welcome

We attach the word ‘sacred’ to any practice, experience, or way-of-being that slows us down and deepens our experience of being alive. Our sensuality is a manifestation and expression-of our vital life-force and creative energy. It can play, move, and be shared and enjoyed in many ways.

Come with your desire to unmask the secrets of your heart.

Come ready to release those energies that hold you back from manifesting love.

Come explore ways to experience more joy fully in your life.

We will start the night with Embodied Connections, moving in the unknown

First let's talk a little but about how NOT moving in the unknown is one of the most costly, invisible limitations that sabotage our lives.

Learning to move in the unknown is the OPPOSITE of being controlling. It’s the opposite of needing to be “Right”. Practicing moving in the unknown is the medicine for holding your body in knots and tension in your abdomen, anxiety in your chest, and clenching in your root.

Have you ever experienced any of those things?

This is the practice of surrender in the most pleasurable way. It can be a daily, weekly or monthly practice by your divine self or with a partner.

After ...let us lead you through a welcome circle where a room of strangers slowly opens up and winds up on the same page, having the opportunity to be seen, heard, and understood in ways maybe you have never even imagined!

What does “temple party” mean?

In short, it is whatever it means to you. We attach the word ‘sacred’ to any practice, experience, or way-of-being that slows us down and deepens our experience of being alive.

Our sensuality/sxxuality are a manifestation and expression-of our vital life-force and creative energy. It can play, move, and be shared and enjoyed in many ways. You are invited to co-create whatever feeds your soul.

Participation with a capital “P” can mean many things and voyeurs are as warmly welcomed as the most actively engaged. It’s a sensual space where participants are encouraged to explore themselves and others in ways that are stimulating, nurturing, exciting, safe and FUN!

This is the party you want to come to if you’ve never been AND this is the party you want to come to if you want to experience how to take generating safe play space for you and your loved ones to the next level.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

You are sensually and emotionally savvy enough to play nicely with others. You’re a good sharer, you take good care of your toys and you use your words. 🙂 You are somebody who knows your own wants and boundaries and can communicate them clearly… and/or you’re someone willing to work and explore these areas for your own growth and enjoyment! You treat yourself and others with respect and kindness.

If you’re reading this, thinking, “I would love to come, but I don’t want to play,” PLEASE COME and enjoy the pressure-free company of like-minded individuals and exit whenever you wish. Really. There will be no pressure for you to do ANY activity at this party at any time.

My biggest request is that you come with a fun-loving, warm, caring, open-minded, generous, thoughtful, compassionate, non-judgmental attitude and that you conduct yourself with the highest level of integrity possible.

This will be a very chill, fun, playful event.

Come relax. Come smooch. Come play. Come watch.

All genders, bodies, and orientations welcome. Come as you are and have a great time!

We especially welcome trans, intersex, queer and other folks living anywhere within the spectrum – we recognize how hetero-normative spaces can be and aim to challenge this through our conversations and actions…

TIME

Doors open at 7 PM and CLOSE AT 7:30 PM. BE ON TIME as it is essential to have everyone present for the opening circle. There will not be anyone admitted after the doors are closed to preserve the safety of our space. The Welcome Circle is what we use to introduce ourselves to one another, craft meaningful conversations, share any boundaries and relationship agreements people should know about and get all comfy and ready to play. PLEASE text Monique at 619 601 8852 if you’re unavoidably running late, but please just be on time! There will be an optional closing circle at 11 PM.

WHAT TO BRINGWhatever food and drink you might want for the evening. No drugs or alcohol please. We like our attendees to be present and capable of connection. Bring whatever clothing you’d like to don and lounge in while we frolic or just throw on your regular weekend clothes for relaxation.
