We welcome you to the Temple of Babalon. This Temple is only for those who have already been to temple two or more. It is for those who are bravely ready. Babalon is the Red Goddess, who represents the re-unification of the Mother and Whore falsely divided so long ago, with so many dire consequences. Her essence is the decommissioning of judgements about what is “high” and “low” s*xuality. We are all on a complex path of acquiring experiences to fulfil our soul journey, and in her temple we will create a space that embraces all expressions of s*xuality equally, be they raw expressions of lust, or subtle tantric practices... all with consciousness, in a space that is trauma aware. Come as you are. You are welcome in Her Temple.
This temple is an introduction to s*x magick. The essence of s*x magick, as practiced throughout history, is recognising the power in the deep trance state that Eros leads us into. From this place we are able to manifest our visions for an empowered life and a renewed, healed culture.
In the first, held portion of the temple we'll activate our own and each others subtle erotic bodies for heightened sensitivity, then perform a group ritual choreographed around sacred temple geometry. We'll then learn how to supercharge our intentions using a classic s*x magick technique known as sigils (magickal symbols).
The second portion will be a more free flow space with different themes to invite you into the magickal practices of Babalon's Temple.
You can choose to be alone and/or co-creating together, weaving the temple in free play.

You do need to have experience of being in similar spaces with a certain level of awareness, openness and willingness to explore is essential for your own self-care and also the synergy of the group.
We invite you to come, just as you are and feel. We know that being in these environments can bring up a lot of emotions. This is a safe space to welcome them and work with them in an embodied, held and ritual temple space. The evening will be held throughout.
FOR COUPLES: Please make your agreements together before you arrive at Temple. It is totally fine if you wish to stay purely with each other during the night.
