What is a Puja?
A Puja is a fun and easy way to explore Tantra whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro. You don't need any previous experience to attend so it's a great way to get a taste of what Tantra is about. If you're single you can think of a Puja as the Tantric version of speed dating.
Puja is a Sanskrit word meaning to honor or celebrate. In the Hindu tradition, of which Tantra is a part, a Puja is often used to worship and adore a deity or to spiritually celebrate an event. In the west the most common style of Tantra practiced is Neo-Tantra and in these circles we invite you to celebrate the Divine in us all. We honor the whole body as the temple and use pleasure as the tool to awaken to more of our naturally Divine selves. How beautiful to celebrate all our humanness, to fall more deeply in love with ourselves and those around us!
In my Pujas you are guided through a series of exercises to get you out of you head and more connected to your body in an evening of love, devotion and adoration. You explore new kinds of intimacy and connection through eye gazing, touch, sound, energy play and breath. This will help to open up, activate and awaken your heart, mind, body and spirit leaving you refreshed, renewed and truly loved up. My Pujas are a fun, playful way to meet new people and share connection and touch in a safe and often juicy ritual.
The meaning of Puja is explored in Lorin Roche's poetic translation of the Vijnana Bhiarava Tantra in Sutra 147:
