Shakti - female principle of creation
This training is inspired by tantric philosophy, ayurveda & Sacred Female Arts. We invite you on a conscious and magical journey to unveil wisdom that has long been forgotten on the path of the feminine. Wisdom that will transform the ways in which you perceive, live and share your womanhood.
Much of the sacred Shakti wisdom has been lost over time. Obscured and sometimes deliberately obliterated by patriarchal history, religious power plays and social stereotypes that undermine what true female power is. During the last few centuries of human history, HER-story has rarely been told. Throughout the ages, those in power have constructed shameful and deeply wounding stereotypes around female bodies, psyches and souls in order to suppress what a woman is and always will be by her very nature: Creatrix. Holy and powerful, intuitive, ever-changing, and inspiring the world with her creations.
We believe that true change for this world has to come from inside. We can not repair the visible, external world if we do not take a look at what ideas and misbeliefs we have around our own female imagery. We cannot change the outside happenings of the world if we do not look at our own internal patterns of feeling and thinking. It is our inner world that creates our outer world.
For us, the true work of a spiritual woman is to find freedom within so that she is able to put her full heart and soul into creating something new. She does this not just for herself, but for all generations to come. We believe that as women we have to take a look at the tears of our soul. This is how we become our own healers and learn how to bloom like a lotus flower. Honoring the roots of our subconscious fears and insecurities, we come to integrate the power of self-love with fierce grace.
The time has come. To rise as sacred women. Women who know themselves in all their facets. Women who honor their bodies as the temples of their souls. Women who fight for what they truly believe in. Women with values that lift others up. Women who bow in front of each others beauty, because they have touched their own beauty by looking into the mirror of their souls. Women who do not have to worship God, because they know they are his very essence. Women who lovingly kiss the soil of Mother Earth. Women who dance under the shining light of the moon and the stars!
