The Light Dark Institute is dedicated to expanding and enriching the range of human experience through drawing out people’s ability to say “yes” to their darker, unknown aspects and find all the intimacy, fulfillment, and deep personal power that is hidden there.


Tani Thole and Leslie Rogers have dedicated their lives to study and exploration into the human psyche and its relationship with the non-material world, through spirituality, psychology, personal development, sexuality, and BDSM. They founded the Light Dark Institute out of a passion for sharing the ways that exploring our dark sides can radically awaken and liberate us from the old patterns that have held us back and kept us in judgement of ourselves and the world around us.
