Pujafest with Peter Peterson, Monique Darling, and Pamela Madsen

7:00 pm19:00

Pujafest with Peter Peterson, Monique Darling, and Pamela Madsen

  • Hawaii, HI

Join us for an adventure unlike any other! 

Monique and Peter have traveled all over the country doing puja's of every type imaginable and with the help of lovely Pamela, would like to give you a taste of ALL of them!

What is a puja? A puja is a ceremony to practice the path of tantra. In the East, puja is a celebration of the Divine, an honoring ceremony for a God or a Goddess, and those somewhere in between ;) In the West, we also celebrate the Divine, the divine in each of us. A puja is a group of people like you, open to celebrating heart felt interactions. During a puja we pair up with partners and practice different exercises that are designed to open our hearts, and deeper connect with ourselves and with others. It is an evening that will nurture your body, heart and spirit.

You are can come by yourself, with a partner, or with a couple of partners! Singles, couples, triads, pods and more are all welcome! People of all gender identities, sexual orientations, and relationship orientations are invited. :)

This is an excellent safe fully clothed structured space, for you to get to move through the potential awkward moments of interacting in a small group, plus it will just be a fun, connective, humorous evening, wherein we get permission to laugh at ourselves, to not have to "get it right" as you dare to try out something new.

We can all learn to "turn on" our own "arousal response" which is the rocket fuel for our creative, erotic and spiritual lives. Through a step by step erotic meditation, knowned at the Lotus and Stem Lift; Pamela will lead the group through some very simple practices into your very own powerful arousal and their erotic nature. For the first time ever, you may find your own internal erotic GPS. We just have to learn to listen.

Things to look forward to:

  • Loosen the shackles that bind your heart and tongue as you find your divine reflection through each person you interact with. 
  • Be witnessed with such clarity and unconditional love, you will emerge transformed. 
  • Begin to connect with others in wonder, curiosity, and utter awareness, celebrating the divine presence within us all.
  • Enter a wonderland of delights where every touch sensation you can imagine (and even a few beyond your wildest dreams) are laid out for you to explore. 
  • Explore both touching and being touched for your own pleasure, taking turns to fully focus on giving and then on receiving touch.
  • Practice asking for the exact touch that you are craving in any moment. 
  • Hold one another's tears
  • Communicate with another in total silence
  • Be guided on a journey using the most intimate form of touch, our breath. 
  • We’ll be introducing an ancient ritual where you will explore each-others bodies, magnifying your connection physically, energetically, and spiritually.
  • Then align your chakras through touch, breath, connection, and shared intent.
  • Then earth touch, as you ground, and recenter, massage, nurture, hold, BE with one another.
  • Followed by fire, as you invigorate, entice, awaken, arouse, "heat" up yourself and your partner
  • Cooling down with water touch, fluid, soft, caressing, gentle, swaying, following, gliding 
  • With each element drop even deeper into your embodied bliss state as you learn to touch for YOUR pleasure, as you get to practice asking for the specific types of touch your body is craving/imagining at any moment.

If you come with partner(s), you can do all the negotiated exercises with one another, or you can choose to rotate through the room, where at each station (Exercise) you will have a chance to interact with 2 or more new people. 

GENERAL INFO

  • Please eat before you arrive. 
  • This is a guided event and maintains strict boundaries which are firmly enforced. 
  • Please arrive 6:30-7pm. 
  • Doors will be locked at 7:00 pm so don’t be late!

Laughter, Giggles, Moans and Groans: Beyond 50 Shades of Sexy

  • Meridian Space

A Full On and Jam Packed One Day Workshop Dedicated to Creating The Hot, The Playful, The Sacred and The Extraordinary in Your Bedroom and Beyond

Known for their humor and straight talk, internationally known sex educators Pamela Madsen and Mac S. McGregor will support you in growing the seeds of your own desires, and learn new skills without shame and with intense pleasure in this one day with over flow non-residential workshop.

The workshop will begin on Friday evening with a meet and greet. And continue on Saturday morning into an optional evening event. This is a clothing on event on Friday evening and Saturday during the day with a nudity optional lab opportunity on Saturday evening.

Here's "the thing" about sexuality; sometimes we talk the sexy and the pleasure right out of sex! And if you are like most people, you want to get out of your brains just for a little while, and you want to get into your bodies. You are yearning to laugh and to play.

When was the last time you played with your sexuality? When was the last time you did something different?

To truly experience what it is to have sexual freedom, we need to cultivate our erotic imagination. For each of us, our sexual freedom and playfulness lies in our ability and willingness to create a sexuality of our very own. Forget normal. In truth, what works for doctors and some psychotherapists putting the human experiences into boxes of normal and not normal does not always serve us when it comes to sexuality. Sexuality is often politically incorrect. And of course, that being said, "Safe, Sane and Consensual" is always a part of what Mac and Pamela teach.

What if we were each invited to view our sexuality as a work of art, and we handed you a blank canvas that was the size of the biggest wall you had ever seen, and an endless supply of colorful paints, pencils and markers. What if we invited you to fill this tremendous blank canvas with your erotic desires? What if you felt truly free enough to create your very own sexuality without shame, judgement or inhibitions? What if we invited you to play in your sexuality?

The human erotic imagination may be one of the golden keys to having an extraordinary sex life. So many of us are raised with a spoken and unspoken understanding of what is allowable and what is not, when it comes to having sex. We are raised with this idea of what is "normal' and "approved" and what is "kinky".

Quite literally, for many of us our erotic imagination get's shut down and we are left with a very short list of what is allowable for us in our expression of sexuality. Everything else is somehow made "taboo" or "dirty" or "not normal".

That leaves us either filled with shame over desires that we may think are wrong, or we simply become numbed out to the possibilities.

For others, we may simply have not explored how to cultivate our erotic imagination. So what makes up our erotic imagination? What are some tools to free up and explore our erotic imagination?

So let's go Beyond Fifty Shades of Sexy!

You will walk out of this workshop designed for all genders, sexual orientations, singles and couples with some wonderful ideas about how to create the playful, hot and sexy in your bedroom and beyond.

Do you want sexgasms, playgasms, orgasms and laughgasms? Then this is the perfect raucous, information-packed, fun, play shop for you. Mac and Pamela will discuss and demonstrate an extraordinary array of toys, techniques, and ideas to get your own erotic imagination going!

You will learn all kinds of ways to extend pleasure until you are squealing with delight! And we are talking about with all of your partner's parts and your own.

  • Explore Sexual fantasy. Allowing ourselves to travel freely in our own mind and explore without shame or putting any labels of judgement around our sexual fantasies.
  • We will play with costumes. Do you have a secret sexual alter ego? Who would you be? Have you ever spent time with your sexual alter ego? We will explore that.
  • What about consent? Speaking your desires? Asking for what you want and don't want in a way that can be heard? We will go there too. It's more than saying the right words. Consent allows you to go deeper into pleasure and we are not taught the tools. You will leave this workshop with the skills of listening to your partner and yourself moment by moment.
