This Valentine's Day, join us for for an evening of conscious connection with our yummy community of Tantrikas, opening to the Beloved residing in each of us. In this ceremony, we'll be calling Eros to work through us, stirring our sensual energies and opening together into a field of sacred loving. Using Tantrik practices to embody your sexuality while remaining aligned with the heart, we're inviting awakened singles to come celebrate our nature as sexual beings, initiating one another into a higher octave of authentic expression. This evening promises to be a safe space for you to connect and explore your own energies and desires, and a powerful opportunity to cast a love spell into the universe, calling your own sacred Beloved into your life.


Our ceremonial medicine will be raw cacao, which opens and activates the heart, inviting us into deeper intimacy. Cacao has been used ceremonially by the Mayan, Aztec, and Olmec people for millennia, and today our cacao is grown by their indigenous descendants in Southern Belize. Drinking cacao directly into our heart space creates an alchemy for powerful intimacy to emerge.


Puja is the Sanskrit word for Worship. Drawing on Tantrik practice, we will enter into a Ritual of divine play between the masculine and the feminine. Anointing each other and calling forth our highest selves, we will embody Shiva and Shakti in their infinite dance of love and attraction. Our Puja will guide you to open your heart to receive the Beloved in us all, and to be witnessed in your heartfelt desire to call that precious being into your life.


Following the Puja, we will have time for relaxation and snuggles, ensuring everyone gets fully loved up this Valentine’s Day! This will be a clothing-on event, with no direct sexual contact, but sexual energy is more than welcome between enthusiastically consenting participants.

Is this for me?

Embracing the Beloved is a ceremony for singles (or a poly couple) to invoke the sacred in intimate connection. We're co-creating a safe container of like-minded souls for authentic union to blossom. This is a space where you can embody your full sensual radiance. It's an invitation into deeper intimacy.
