What we're about
Welcome to the grass roots, people-powered, community calendar of events for the Tantra Community in Los Angeles + coastal areas around Santa Monica! Please READ ABOUT TANTRA ON OUR page (https://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Tantra-Community-Calendar/about/).
There are several new, important differences between this and most other Meetups. The most important difference is that from now on ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN CREATE AND ANNOUNCE MEETUP EVENTS, ***AS LONG AS THEY'RE TANTRA EVENTS.***
EVERY SINGLE COMMUNITY MEMBER can post on the Community Calendar - any time you want.
Here is - step by step - how to create a grass roots Meetup event on the Community Calendar:
1. Join the Community.
2. Go to the 'Let's Meetup and...' prompt to suggest and add Meetups on the Meetup Group's home page
3. Members may add Meetups by filling out the 'Let's Meetup and...' form
4. Member-added Meetups with a date selected will appear on the Calendar
5. Member-added Meetups without a date selected will appear only on the 'Upcoming' Meetups list on the Meetup Group's home page
ALL community members can reach the entire community on the mailing list! All you have to do is send a message to the mailing list.
These are powerful community building tools. Please use them responsibly:
This is our community. Let's nurture and care for it:
Tantra centers around love & support, honoring each other; & on the wisdom of Tantra being accessible to everyone: Teachers/event hosts who compete or suppress other's loving Tantra events; or don't credit the creators of the practices the use, --or copy other's words/artwork/photos in their post ( rather than using their own, or asking & crediting them), -- will not be able to use this community list:
"In a community where we all support & credit each other, we are all supported." ~Diana, list host
