Welcome to the Light Dark Institute
The Light Dark Institute is dedicated to research and education on cutting-edge inner- and inter-personal technologies for interfacing with power.
Power is a hugely important force in our world. Be it in work, politics, or our intimate relationships, power dynamics have a huge impact on who gets their way and how things play out. Yet most people in the world find that they face blocks in stepping into the level of personal power that they crave. Societal shame and fear of causing harm or looking bad keep us playing small. We relegate fundamental parts of ourselves to the “darkness”, the forbidden, the unknown.
To access our full personal power and the creativity and intimacy that go with it, it is necessary to touch these dark places within ourselves. It can be terrifying to explore these aspects of ourselves when we have childhood traumas and a lifetime of societal conditioning telling us it’s not safe to let these parts be seen. At the Light Dark Institute we create safe spaces for people to explore their shadow sides and tap into the raw force of their personal power and their own deepest potential, so they can transform their own lives and the world around them.
About the Founders
Tani Thole and Leslie Rogers founded the Light Dark Institute out of a passion for sharing the ways that exploring our dark sides can be used for deep transformation and healing. Tani is a highly trained and certified energy healer specializing in healing core wounds and defense patterns from childhood. Leslie is a certified relationship and desire coach specializing in the use of play to convert shame into power.
