tantra speed date
Tantra Speed Date® is a fresh new take on speed dating that combines a relationship skills class with a Puja-style “speed date.” Whether in person or virtual, we help singles step into helpful relationship roles–something most of us were not taught in school. Then through fun connection exercises from various practices (such as Tantra, meditation, partner yoga, actor’s improv, eye gazing, dance) you have an opportunity to practice getting to know someone in a more meaningful way. And many of the exercises translate surprisingly well online.
As a result people walk away not only with matches, but with new skills, and often a new perspective on what relationships can be. Our daters say it sure beats the other options for meeting people, and our 95% match rate agrees!
