About This Month's Sacred Saturday
Each of us has the capacity to touch the mystery, to inspire the divine... to access and awaken to our own innate ecstatic potential. Join us this evening for a very special tantric Puja (sacred circle) and enter into The Mystic Temple of Divine Bliss. Welcomed by temple guardians (priests and priestesses), and immersed in the sacred sounds of live temple music (featuring the amazing Lakshmi Devi) we'll explore how to move beyond our everyday mundane life experiences, surrender into the unknown, and open to the bliss and ecstasy of the moment - with presence, awareness, and aliveness. Through meditation, movement, group interaction, personal exploration, partner practice, and breath & energy work, we'll practice seeing and honoring the divine in ourselves and others, and give ourselves permission to manifest this divinity in our personal life, our relationships, and everyday living. Singles, couples, partners… all are welcome! We look forward to seeing you there!

Sacred Temple Songs by Lakshmi Devi
Lakshmi Devi, our exquisite temple singer, is an inspired musician/songwriter who performs all across the West Coast, Hawaii, and Thailand. Lakshmi produces shows, writes and records her original music, and directs music for ritual performances. She is also a guest performer and studio musician for numerous projects, including internationally acclaimed electronic dance band Medicine Drum, renowned world musician Geoffrey Gordon, and popular chanting guru Krishna Das. Lakshmi Devi's premier solo CD is currently available and will officially be released to the public in June of 2006. For more information about Lakshmi Devi, visit

Volunteers Needed to Create Sacred Space
We're always in need of volunteers to help set up and/or take down the sacred space we create for each Sacred Saturday event. Of course, volunteers get to attend the evening for free, often join us afterwards for a late meal, and will be invited to our annual Tantric Gratitude Party. To volunteer, please call (831) 457-6535 or email

What Are Sacred Saturdays?
Held the first Saturday of each month, Sacred Saturdays offer an evening of sacred ritual and community celebration, drawing from various traditions such as Tantra, meditation, yoga, Sufism, Buddhism, Native American, dance, chant, and other paths to help us connect with ourselves and others with presence, compassion, and awareness. Each evening is dedicated to celebrating your highest self while recognizing the divine in each other through breath, movement, energy work, music, guided visualization, and conscious communication. Practices may be done alone, with a partner, or as part of the whole group. We strive to create a safe, respectful, and comfortable environment for those coming alone, as a couple, or in groups; those coming for the first time; and for those who want to join a community of like-minded people dedicated to cultivating and sharing the sacredness and joy of life. All are welcome. No experience required.
