We end with an experiential Temple party for the sensually adventurous. A beautiful unstructured time where YOU get to decide how to play in all of the yummy energy we have cocreated throughout the evening.
This special evening welcomes ALL and is very gender friendly. This is an invitation to dive deeply into yourself and each other in ways you may have been afraid to do in the past. This is the play party you want to come to even if you’ve never been to one before. We create an expansive, feeling-full environment charged with electricity, sensual, and sxxuality, yet warmly grounded and earthy. A safe and sacred container for exploring kisses and hugs in a relaxed space. This party encourages your curiosity about taking your own sensuality to the next level. The evening is a celebration of imagination and curiosity, so you may experience as many flavors as you dare. Come dressed in something that makes you feel sacred and feeling good about yourself!
Next let Peter, and Monique 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/sexxuality 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!

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.
