A Tantric Ground Event

Friday, Dec 15th, 2017 – Holiday Puja
Northampton, MA

150 Main St., Studio Helix (3rd floor Thornes Market), Northampton, MA
6:30-10pm

For the Holiday Puja, please bring a dish of your favorite festive food for our potluck table.  In addition to the Puja, we’ll share food, light candles and share songs.  Please come join us!

‘Puja’ is a ritual prayer.  Borrowed from Eastern traditions, its used to honor a sacred event or diety.  In tantric communities in the U.S. it has become synonymous with a structure for building individual and community connection.

What makes this Puja sacred?  It’s sacred because we decide to call it sacred.  Then we invite our open hearts, a reverence for life, eyes that are capable of seeing the beauty in the world – and we create a bit of heaven here on earth.

This is Tantric Ground’s Introductory event – facilitated by Kristen Chamberlin.  The first hour will be community building activities and learning skills around boundary setting that make for a successful Puja.  The Puja itself begins halfway through the evening.
