Time: 7:00pm 10:00pm
1307 Seabright Ave., Santa Cruz, CA.
Details: $25 per person. No pre-registration, no experience

Please arrive early so we can start on time
us for a very special Sacred Saturday, and another evening
in the "Mystic Temple" theme. As you enter our sacred space,
you'll be welcomed by temple priests & priestesses and enchanted
by the sights and sounds of temple dancers and music. Then, Michael
Pooley, Richard Bock, and Mellissa Seaman will lead us in An Evening
of Divine Ravishment.
Divine Ravishment, we invite participants into an ecstatic state of
authenticity and the direct experience of natural divine bliss, using
activities like ecstatic breath, movement, conscious relating, and
spontaneous play. Divine Ravishment is about finding that ecstatic
bliss in every experience, whether it's interacting and relating with
others; connecting with and expressing yourself; dancing, moving,
singing, playing... or just sitting in silence and breathing.
we've got a lot of fun tools to share, we find the tools aren't as
important as the strong group container we hold... and all of us co-create.
When a community of open-minded-hearted people set their Intention
on experiencing Divine Ravishment, we've found that the Universe shows
up to provide just that! Singles, couples, partners... all are welcome.
We look forward to seeing you there!

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, feel free to just drop in.
