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 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.

Experience the work

We invite you to learn more about our workshops and intensives, from "Touching the Darkness" (a mild evening intro), to "Embracing the Darkness" (a powerfully transformative weekend workshop), to "The Light Dark Experience" (a life-changing personalized intensive for individuals and couples).

I’ve attended dozens of workshops over the years and nothing has been as deep and penetrating as what LDI offers. It’s transformative and liberating on level 10.
