This Puja is based on Tantric principles, a Puja is a prayer. In Tantra a prayer is a way of honoring and adoring the divine that dwells within each of us. The subtle sensual energies residing within our bodies are invoked, revered, and welcomed as honored guests at this feast of love.

This evening’s Puja is dedicated to women. Though the presentation starts off with an introduction to some of the esoteric practices of Tantra to give us a context for the Puja, we will soon switch gears and actually engage in this heartening practice. We will use movement, sound and the five elements, all given to us with ample instruction, enriching each experience throughout the ceremony. You may find yourself turning inwards and becoming aware of abundant love and innate beauty that is part of your being.

In a Goddess Puja, men have the opportunity to express their unconditional love and adoration towards women. This ceremony opens men's hearts in a way that allows them to see the inner beauty and the Goddess within women. They will be instructed in performing an ancient ritual which is simple in form yet very powerful in practice. As women accept the offerings and adoration, they in turn connect with unconditional love and reflect that adoration back to the men with their presence. Taking part in these Pujas is a very powerful way to reconnect and relate with the feminine. 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 Tantrikas who implemented the religious and spiritual practices of Yogis and sages into the Art of Adoration, 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 Goddesses.

Women, Devis, though not required, you are welcome to dress for the evening – perhaps adorn yourself with jewelry you feel most happy in, or wear the scarf you love that you can’t wear to work. It is your evening; indulge yourself as you wish, but please be comfortable.

Men, Shiva, though not required, you are welcome to dress for the evening too. Think of the times the goddesses in your lives had asked you to dress a certain way for their pleasure – well, this may be an opportunity to do just that, but please be comfortable. You may bring flowers, chocolates, or other divinely treats as your offering to the goddesses in the room.

    I'm still floating , and somewhat beguiled by last night's ceremony. I feel like I must have left something behind, like I'm a little more naked than I'm used to being (metaphorically speaking), and I don't mind shedding that baggage. Thank you, Ran.

    All emotions represented through these devotions. Also humbling, inspiring and deeply unsettling at once. I learned how terribly unprepared I was for it but it calls me back so I am looking forward to opening myself to experiencing the next Goddess Puja. Ran was wonderful throughout but his last few words to me showed a depth of care and insight I've rarely seen. I am grateful to Monique and Atia Marie for their silent guidance and heartfelt honesty. It was a rare evening I would wish on anyone.
