Ecstatic Heart Puja

~Presented by Ritual~

Wednesday, March 22nd, 7-10pm
The Center SF Teahouse, 548 Fillmore St, SF
Purchase Tickets: https://goo.gl/7aS2kT

Description
A Puja is a Tantric Ritual of worship where we gather to share connection, celebrate life, and tap into our own divine life-force energy. At this Ecstatic Heart Puja, we will be creating a safe space to call in the sacred, open our hearts and tap into our juicy sensuality and sublime presence. It’s a celebration of love through a series of heart-opening partnered experiences. You’ll be guided into your senses through sacred poetry – connecting with your own body through movement and breath and to others through eye-gazing and healing touch.

This Puja is based on the poetry of the Radiance Sutras, a modern interpretation of the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra, an ancient Tantrik text. Through an series of meditations, Shiva offers his consort, Devi, practices that lead into “joyous union with the life of the universe.”

This is a fully clothed event. You are welcome to participate at exactly the level that feels right for you.
Open to singles, couples, triads, etc… and people of all genders.

“I feel like before Tantra, I was able to clearly see the Divine in others and through Tantra I’m now able to see my own.” ~M.S.
