Your body is your greatest ally...it’s time to welcome yourself home.
Welcome to Honey in the Temple, a community where we explore our inherent goodness by waking up to the abundant joy, wisdom, connectedness and playfulness of our bodies. Our experiences are designed to help you find body-mind balance and clarity through embodiment techniques, somatic (from the Greek word Soma meaning Body) practices, and mindfulness-awareness meditations.Explore Our Programs
Let's move towards greater balance, enjoyment and ease
The Honey in the Temple experience offers science-backed, mindfulness and body-based teachings to help reestablish our joyful connection with our bodies. Our mission is to make this process accessible, FUN, and playful.
Research is now showing what most of us have forgotten- our bodies are an enormous source of power, knowledge and consciousness that informs our lives. We experience the world and ourselves with and in our bodies and yet most of us relate to our bodies as a machine and only notice when it's in gross pain, pleasure or silent.
It's worth asking ourselves:
How is our disconnection from our bodies limiting our experience of life?
What wisdom, capacity and health would make itself available to us if we lived in the fullness of our body, mind and spirit?
How would this change how we interact with ourselves, each other and our planet?
"The practices you’ve shared are about being a human being, which I appreciate so much. And because it’s body focused, it’s added an element I too easily ignore – just connecting with myself with ease and appreciation."

Find, feel and increase what already feels good in your body intrinsically. The ability to sense what feels good is vital to healing trauma and leads to a greater sense of well-being, happiness and compassion in our lives.

Making Friends with Our Bodies
By developing an attitude of friendliness towards our experiences, we can begin to create and cultivate safety for ourselves and others to show up authentically. This genuine presence is the ground on which we can experience a sense of relaxation, levity, and happiness, while letting go of insecurities, defensiveness, and fear.
Coming in Fall 2022
Opening to Our World through Our Senses
By isolating, activating and heightening each of our six senses, we will push beyond our tendency to dismiss or ignore them and rediscover the vividness of our experience and our connection to the natural world.
"I needed to get back in touch with the power and pleasure of my BODY and get out of the chaos of my mind. I desire a lighter life at this phase. I have gathered tools from Honey in the Temple that are practical AND practicable. In other words, I can and will use these tools because they make sense to me and don’t require any special equipment, etc."

Hi, I'm Ladan
I founded Honey in the Temple with the purpose of participating in building a society that is healthy, kind and open. The only way to do this is to start with ourselves. This work is my calling. In my pursuit to learn what lies beyond my own suffering and pain, I have studied with great teachers, accompanied other seekers and found my own pathways to joy and liberation. I hold an MFA from the University of Plymouth, am co-founder and facilitator of the Contemplative Creativity Lab and the facilitator and meditation instructor for the Seattle Shambhala BIPOC Meditation Group. My meditation lineage for the last 15 years has been Shambhala - a secular form of Buddhism started in the West by Chögyum Trungpa Rinpoche, which is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. I have found that we can be serious and playful at the same time and that a bit of humor and levity makes it possible for us to do the hard work. I’m honored to share my learnings with you. In our work together, plan to see me in my authenticity– raw, warm, and high-spirited. Let’s get out of our own way and onto the path of discovering our goodness!Get to know me
