Shakti Essentials

Thinking about stepping into the world of the DIVINE FEMININE, Tantra, Shakti, Trauma release, Divine Embodiment & Temple Practices? Do you want to know and value your body and sexual powers? To reinvent your relationship with yourself and everything around you?

Working with these magnetic spiritual forces can be life-changing. Therefore we offer this Essentials course: to offer you the basics, the framework, and concepts needed to dive into the journey of discovering the divine feminine and tantra. To prepare you for the initiations and transmissions offered in the Temple Priestess year training (and the separate modules). We recommend you to participate in this course before entering any of the trainings. And also just to explore for yourself: is this something for you?

Because, what is (Shakti) Tantra? And what are the methods we found are the most important to work with? We will introduce you to techniques that will guide you through trauma, the basics of how your nervous system works, and reconnect you with the wisdom of the body. We will go into the different stages of both Shakti (feminine) and Shiva (masculine) energy, dark and light, and let you discover how you embody these. We’ll work on knowing and setting your boundaries. Together we’ll explore how you can set up a self-practice, offering you practical tools and meditations. At the end of the last meeting, there will be a Q&A with Marcia to ask any other questions that came up.
