What it is:

The Light Dark Experience (LDE) is the Light Dark Institute’s VIP offering, available for individuals and couples. For the full duration of the LDE, the two founders of the Light Dark Institute, Leslie Rogers and Tani Thole, put all of their attention on you and what is needed to set you free. Each night they take you through an experience of "Dark" play in the dungeon, and the days are filled with "Light" work involving energetic healing sessions and in-depth coaching designed to take you to your next level and beyond.
