Immersing deeply into the Holy Stream of the Divine Feminine
Open the gateways to wonder and delight. Live in embodied bliss. Look into the mirror of your mind, the home of the Secret Dakini. Remember who and what you truly are. Realize that at this stage of our global journey it is interconnectedness and inclusivity that aligns with our soul’s purpose. Compassion and an all-encompassing respect for diversity and dignity brings us full circle to our spiritual nature where the love of Self extends itself to the love of all. Awaken to the Universal Tantra of Truth, Holy Love.
We invite you to join us for a profound, educational and transformational experience: Facilitating the embodiment of your soul's purpose and divine essence. This is a comprehensive and inspirational program, a course study compilation of gems that our Teachers have polished from decades of learning, practicing and teaching Yoga, Tantra (Kaula Trika & Sri Vidya lineages of Kashmir Shaivism , Shamanic Tantra and Neo), Meditation, Bodywork, Bhakti, Shamanic Transformation, Healing, Devotional Embodiment, Artful Movement, Temple Dance, Goddess Studies, Mudras, Kirtan, Loving Communication, Philosophy, Anatomy, Ayurveda and more.
We are one tree in divinity, blossoming from our global Lotus, between the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge. To co-create our New Story, we are called to unite the past with the present, the East with the West, North and South, Inwards and Outwards, Above and Below, the left-hand and right-hand of Tantra, Shamanic-Classical-Neo-Tantra, all manner of world religions and philosophies into the Holy Love Heart Cauldron of Now.
We stand on the great evolutionary bridge of divine truth. May all beings learn to discern for themselves what is true. May all falsehood and ego be burned away in the dross, that we may do the great work of our highest alchemy. The light of a thousand suns shines its rays through each and everyone of us. No single culture, religion or philosophy owns the truth, rather, the truth owns us. Together, may we reach with all our branches toward the light of Creation's Mind, opening our hearts fully that all fear and divisiveness may be transformed by Holy Love into True Communion.
"Just as the sun is not separate from its rays, ultimate reality is not separate from its manifestation." Shiva and Shakti are one. We invite you to become the Bhakti Shakti Devotees and Shivakti Tantra Yoga Teachers of Holy Love: to shine and burn bright as living dancing flames. Learn to weave as the life-poets embodying your artistry, the mystics with messages channelled thru these bodies, the goddesses drinking in and offering up the internal Soma medicine of Shivakti Tantra Yoga. Say 'Yes' to the Teacher you were born to become.
The Vinyasa practice in Shivakti Tantra Yoga is a weaving of Kundalini, Bhakti Nova, Anusara, Hatha and Tantra Yoga.
Student Applications are now being accepted for those who wish to dive deep into the Heart of Tantra Yoga - within small groups of (twelve) students at a time(for our in-person retreat immersions). We have a large, beautiful, spacious program in the Redwoods.
We will also be launching an online Shivakti Tantra Yoga Teacher Program as well as other online offerings in 2022, to make ourselves more accessible to those who can not attend in-person.
We are a Registered Yoga School with the Yoga Alliance to provide the 200-hour Tantra Yoga Teacher Certification, and additionally our shorter workshops are credentialed as "Continuing Education". Incoming applications are for 2022-2023. We are now putting together our program for the 300-hour Shivakti Tantra Yoga Teacher Certification, which we plan to offer in Fall 2022. The earlier you apply for the limited spaces, the better.
Whether you are an aspiring teacher or desire to deepen your practice, this certified program will give you a solid foundation to practice and teach Shivakti Tantra Yoga. "Shivakti" is the inner alchemy sacred union of Shiva & Shakti, the dance of the divine, which we aim to explore and embody through our full range of practices. While honoring Yoga’s historical background, we approach Tantra Yoga as a modern and holistic practice, providing you with a potent blend of Eastern tradition, Western science, Asana Practices & Temple Arts.
"Without beginning, middle or end, of infinite power, of infinite arms, whose eyes are the moon and sun, I see thee, whose face is flaming fire, Burning this whole universe with Thy radiance." -from the Bhagavad Gita
