"The Visionary Mystical experiences are humanity's most direct contact with God/dess and our Creative Source."

"Shamana Ma leads us in engaging with the immediate urgency of being alive. Her Tigress gait leads us thru the jungles of lush sensual abundance, by a masterful prowess to hunt for love in all its glitter and fur, to jump and bite thru into the tender fire source of juice and joy. Again & again, leading thru the ancient gateways of the eternal lesson: to hunt and ravish our hearts desire until we have finally found our greatest belonging - ourselves, lying naked and delicately alive on the fertile ground of truth." Michael Gaio

"Namaste, I want to once again express my deepest gratitude for your guidance to a beautiful far away space of such spiritual enlightenment. You have indeed drawn upon the vast pallet of metaphysical consciousness from the ancient world to compose a beautiful new world ritual that magically unifies all elements of its diverse origins. Through your enlightened presence and creative improvisations at each sacred enactment... this beautiful ritual appears to evolve and lyrically transition through so many memorable experiential phases. You certainly have opened the door to a magical world beyond. I would be so deeply honored to be invited to explore further..." :RA

Welcome Friends,

Let us come together to witness the blessing of this body, this age, this moment. We are gifted with these senses through which we can experience the divine recreated in a thousand formless forms. I AM one with the Infinite I AM, as are you.

In our program, I offer myself as a guide on the sacred journey we will all share, allowing the mundane everyday world to dissolve, and opening to the molten inner core of  being, creative life-force energy and divine essence.  Let us dive into the unknown and find ourselves.

My intention is to assist others in awakening to their divine magic, birthright & power, by calling in all our energy and soul parts to be here now embodied intentionally in these human bodies. Together through practices, we facilitate soul-remembrance of the inner union love-dance of Shiva-Shakti, in the purna (fullness) of Holy Love.  We attune ourselves to the Light within, to the Guru Tattva,  "WAHE GURU" - the true teacher, always present. We repose in pure awareness.

Through Shivakti Tantra Yoga, we create strength, flexibility, presence, aliveness, devotion, internal intimacy and creative wonder.

"Awakening to Bliss" is our divine birthright and Tantra Yoga brings us home to the truth. Each one of us here in this physical embodiment has been born of pulsating & radiant Para Devi energy. The entire Universe vibrates with this creative life force essence. 

I am a Tantrika Temple Priestess, an embodiment of the Many Faces of Shakti, a CMT, Shivakti Tantra Yoga Teacher and intuitive shamanic healer. I am very passionate about my spiritual and physical practices. I have spent a lifetime in devotion to knowing truth.

I bring to bear fully my deep heart energy, with a clear intention to be in and of service to the divine essence nature in each of you.  I am honored to share the fruits of my experience while maintaining a fertile “beginner’s mind”,  as I am always looking for new ways to grow through my own experience in your reflection.

As your guide and teacher, I act as a muse and a vessel for truth to pour through. I aim to nurture and create a safe space for you to be your true self, to be met and mirrored, to surrender with the unfolding, the tender soul’s blossoming, where I offer my authentic self, my wisdom, my teachings, transmissions and my heart to you.

I have trained in Temple Body Yoga Healing Arts for the past thirty+ years. My studies range ~ spanning from Shamanism, Yoga, Bodywork, Healing, Religious Studies, Philosophy, Magick, Communication and Tantra.

Through fusing ancient arts, we will unwind, transcend, remember and transform using ritual, meditation, pranayama, mudras, eye-gazing, kundalini activation, soul-language-vibrations, mantras, truth inquiry, yoga asanas, academic studies, shamanic journeying and more!

Allow yourself to feel interconnected with all there is and become the Teacher you are here to Become.

"Brand new to Tantra, I eagerly followed the directions. Words are nearly useless to describe the actual experience of deep inward gazing and awareness of breathing that felt more real than mere physical intimacy. Mantras that sent energy messages through my nervous system, chanting divine music that filled me, the room, and the cosmos... a hummingbird vibration awakened in the base of my spine that traversed its entire length up to my head, my mind melting into my body, while receiving transmissions of magical joy. But her words, chanted and spoken, awakened unknown feelings and connections culminated in a spontaneous release of emotional tears. I am a new devotee..." :Namaste, Max

I am available by telephone, for In-person Teachings over Tea, Private Couples Coaching, Shivakti Tantra Yoga group classes & education, Healing Retreats and I am hosting, teaching and orchestrating the 2024 Shivakti Tantra Yoga Teacher Trainings & Tantrik Workshops. 

I offer you my heart, my home, my land, my soul, my wisdom and my medicine.

My life is devoted to 'Living devotionally embodied as a masterpiece of truth, grit, grace and beauty' while creating a living legacy for others to do the same. - Sharene Shamana Ma
