Awakening Shakti - The Calling
At this time of awakening across the globe, all of us - men and women - are being called to re-member our highest, truest selves, unshackling from aeons of patriarchy and co-creating a new reality that reconciles masculine and feminine in the heart.
As more and more of us hear that call, each of us is inspired, in different ways, to respond. Sometimes this requires solo journeying, sometimes transformation through the crucible of relationship or a mixed group and sometimes - as is the case with the Awakening Shakti workshops - immersing ourselves in the container of sacred sister-hood.
Holding space for these groups is one of my greatest passions, as a woman who has walked the path from a typically dysfunctional family, complete with all the distortions and limitations imposed by patriarchy around sexuality and the feminine, into living as a Priestess of Love & Sacred Sexuality on fire with her mission to awaken the Divine in each of us.
I see and feel the presence of the Goddess within and around us more and more, and yet there is still much to be done, in order for us to truly come home to Her and be free - in our bodies, hearts and minds - of all that represses our innate capacity for love, inner wisdom, heart connection and ecstasy.
Meeting the Masculine Workshop - 10am-5.30pm, Saturday, October 1st
To really feel whole, integrated and in love (whatever your relationship status) and live in the most effective, easeful way, you are going to have to make peace with the masculine.
Your relationship with the men and masculine qualities in your life is always a reflection of your relationship with your inner masculine. This in turn, will bear the imprint, not only of your formative years and relationships, but also of ancestral and societal patterning.
Until you realize this and address the places where things are unresolved, you will find yourself repeating the same patterns, feeling conflicted or alone. You will not be "at one" with yourself or the world around you. It may be difficult to experience real intimacy.
This may not express itself in overt hostility towards the masculine, although it can (blaming and shaming men or traditional masculine attributes) but may present as an inner split between mind and heart, disaffection in your career, a disconnect from the body or, conversely, an inability to find your centre in times of turmoil.
It’s time to get you and your masculine on the same team, consciously co-creating together. And it's time to heal the wounding and separation between masculine and feminine that, so long as it runs in us, will continue to feed into conflict on a wider scale.
The day will include:
- embodiment practices
- cushion dialogue
You will leave with a far clearer sense of how the nature of your inner relationship with the masculine has been mirrored in your outer reality, as well having begun the process of bringing change, healing and integration where you see it is needed, so as to free, empower and enliven your being!
I hold space for this circle as a Priestess of Love & Sacred Sexuality, initiated by the Glastonbury Goddess Temple, a facilitator in Sexual Awakening for Women, trained by Shakti Malan, a teacher of conscious dance, tantra and yoga, and a healer and bodyworker, with additional training in couples counselling. In total, I bring the riches and learning of over 13 years' experience of holding space and bringing men and women into deeper alignment with their bodies, truth and pleasure.
We meet at a the House of Nectar: a private residence near Cockfoster, London (EN4). with a beautifully soft, healing and safe energy. The full address will be given upon registration.
Your Investment for the day is: £80
Please bring a notebook & pen and some vegetarian food to share for lunch. Teas, snacks and soft drinks are provided.
