Tantric speed dating is coming to Calgary!
Tantric speed dating is a unique approach to dating that bypasses the typical humdrum and cuts straight to what matters: making meaningful connections with people who see us for who we truly are - beyond the job titles and the superficiality of typical dating events.
Carefully crafted using the tantric principles of energy, subtle bodies and the senses. Tantric speed dating allows you to experience the pleasure of meeting someone for real, without masks and without games. All In a safe space where your essences are gently coaxed to the surface and celebrated.
Each date is a unique facilitated experience – a light and playful blend of Tantra workshop/ speed dating event. A wonderful place to start if you’ve new to Tantra. And a great place to network with resonant folks if you’re a long-time traveler on the path.
There's no comparison between Tantric Speed Dating and a regular speed dating event. People often tell us that getting dating matches is a like a bonus - just the experience of the night itself is totally worth it!
This event is designed for people ages 25 and up. Most attendees tend to be within the 30 - 45 age range. Please bring an open heart, playful mind, and a healthy dose of curiosity :)

Why? This event almost always sells out and there will be people waiting to take your spot. IF YOU ARE NOT THERE BY 7:00 YOUR SPOT MAY BE GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE. That's because for this to work, we need to have an even number of men and women in the room. It breaks our heart when people miss out because they didn't plan well.
LOCATION: The event is happening at Scarboro Community Centre, 1727 14 Ave SW, Calgary, AB. The doors and a large parking lot are located on the South side, beside the tennis courts - which is accessible via 15th Avenue. Please use the parking lot, as we don’t want to take up the residential parking spaces on the street.
- Wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in and that bring out your must luscious self - skirts are fine as long as you can still sit easily on the floor
- Water bottle (to stay deliciously hydrated)
- Bring a pen (so you can keep track of your dates!)
- Bring a cushion to sit on (for your comfort, of course)
We're so excited to be bringing this to Calgary and are counting the hours to seeing all your shining faces <3
Because we are exploring presence and authentic communication and subtle energies, it is important to be your au naturale self - no alcohol before the event please!
What is the age range?
Tantric speed dating has been designed for people between the ages of 25 and up. the range is broad because the focus of the event is to reveal the inner levels of maturity and evolution, which is rarely reflected by calendar age. We do find the average age range for Tantric Speed Dating tends to fall between 35 – 45 with some people coming in higher and some lower. Generally, people have to get to a certain point of maturity before they are even interested in connecting in these deeper more meaningful ways.
How is the event run?
Tantric Speed Dating is like a cross between a speed dating event and a Tantra workshop. Each date is a fully facilitated experience. You will learn fun new ways to perceive people and determine compatibility. The exercises are non-sexual in nature and will leave you in a beautiful, heartwarming space.
Do you accept payment at the door?
We will accept cash at the door ($45) but in order to guarantee your spot you'll need to register in advance. This is because we need to ensure that we have an equal number of men and women to balance the dates.
What happens if i cancel, don't show up, arrive late, or leave the event early?
Please be advised that just like any event ticket purchase, there are NO refunds or credits of any kind if choose not to attend or leave the event early. All registrations are final.
*Please appreciate that last minute cancellations, leaving in the middle of an event and "no shows" impact others' participation.
Is this event suitable for those in a polyamorous relationship?
Yes! the event is open to both single and poly people. :) Transparency is part of the night and daters will have a chance to share their relationship status.
Is this event LGBTQ+ friendly?
This is a totally inclusive event - just be aware that in this version, women will be matched with men and men with women. We have plans to host a LGBT+ friendly dating event in the near future! Join the mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to be kept in the loop.
Facilitated by: Heidi Loeppky
Heidi began a yoga practice at the age of 18 and first heard the whispers of a Tantric calling years before discovering a language for it. Following her formal introduction to Tantric sadhana in 2012 with Agama Yoga, her life has been primarily dedicated to the discovery of the inner self and raising of consciousness. This initially took the form of a 3 year sabbatical, where she immersed herself in a range of schools, teachers, wisdom traditions, and ashrams to glean a wide and unifying perspective on Tantra. Her corporate beginnings as a Chartered Professional Accountant infuse an additional sense of grounded-ness into her deeply rooted spirituality and an important part of her life’s mission is to act as a bridge between the spiritual and the material arenas. Heidi’s teachings reflect the uprising of Tantra as a spiritual path for people of the world (vs those with vows to a renunciate, monastic lifestyle) presenting a very grounded form of Tantra that is easily integrated into everyday life. Her approach is a pragmatic synthesis of her total life’s work including elements of Hatha Yoga, Classical Indian Tantra, Taoist Tantra, Neo-Tantra, Osho style body awareness practices, Energy work and Shadow Work. She is single-mindedly dedicated to reminding people of their own inherent divine nature.
