The Lioness Den

A taste of your Masculine Essence, a seed of transformation.

These trainings are for men who have a desire to step into their masculine strength. We want to restore the life-giving force from the lingam in all its glory. Bring back the sensitivity and power. And let it be an instrument to be worshipped by yourself and by the feminine, in a beautiful and healthy communion. And therefor fulfill your authentic masculine essence. The dynamic of polarity is necessary for sexual tension, passion and excitement. We will take these polarizing practices to the next level and play with it is as an art form.

The lingam and your life force can suffer from porn, past-rejection issues, rejection from the feminine or taboo issues. Did you suffer from women who were afraid of your masculine power? Did your ‘animal’ side get shamed? Perhaps out of shame and guilt, you created a feminine shield. In this training you will reclaim your masculine energy, in both the light and dark archetypes. From Warrior, Alpha, Killer, Leader, King, Priest, Dominant, Healer, Cult Leader to Ravisher and Supreme Lover. We will play and practice with these energies.

Stages of the Masculine
Not only the light, but also your dark side has gifts to offer you. You can transform addictions and ‘perverseness’ into gifts that open a woman. You will learn how to initiate a woman into this part of you. This will invite a woman to surrender into femininity, and drop her masculine shield. You will learn to recognize a female masculine shield, and disarm it. You will learn to use your voice, posture and energy to create a sexual tension that opens her far beyond her ability to open herself. When was the last time you really ravished your woman? When was the last time you really “took” her, savagely, lovingly, with no inhibition whatsoever? Has it been so long that you can only get turned on by porn and rape scenes?

Stages of the Feminine
You will learn about the female energetic body, female orgasm, and your ability to open her for pleasure, and to the Divine. You will learn how to detect when a women is in a freeze, fight, flight, or cooperation mode. And when and why she closes during love making. You will also learn how to open every cell of her body to receive pleasure. You will learn which factors are necessary for her to dive into a wild and orgasmic love making. To deal with the unpredictable nature of the feminine it is important to understand the 3 stages of feminine- dark and light. From Bimbo to Lolita, from Queen to Manipulator, from Priestess to Bitch. With this knowledge you can navigate through challenging situations, in or out of the bedroom.

Stages of Lovemaking:
One part of your woman is happy she made you come. Another part of her is disappointed that you’ve allowed yourself to choose a temporary and pleasurable spasm over the endless ravishment of her. What are your navigation skills? We will look at the stages of lovemaking and how to get to a real communion of the polarities. You will regain mastery over your sexual energy.

Temple priestesses
In this training you will practice with women, who are there to serve your masculinity. They will challenge you, mirror you, and guide you into all the stages of your masculine strength. They do this by touch, provoking dance and Shakti Tantra practices. They will dance with you, touch you, let themselves be touched by you, show you how their bodies work, speak to you their wishes on how to open them further and call you out on your ‘bullshit’. They will guide you into the opening of their senses to a point where the female body is as open as it can be for the Divine to enter. There will be no exchange of bodily fluids and nudity only when it’s functional and with consent. We use a lot techniques like the wheel of consent, Shakti Tantra practices, movement, constellations, inquiry, radical honesty. It will be an initiation into all your stages of masculine, from dark to light.

Marcia, founder of School of Shakti will host these gatherings. Not as your teacher but as your ally. She will create a space where you, as brothers, will call each other out on your truths. Creating a space for inner leadership to emerge.
“It is with a lot of passion that I facilitate these men trainings. I truly believe when men join and rise together they can change the way we treat the planet, animals, our families, our loved ones. Men have such beautiful qualities like assertiveness (often judged as aggressiveness), leadership (often mistaken by dominance), direction (often mistaken by dicatorship), etc. I see that men make themselves small not to get JUGDED. Hence we miss a whole generation of men in their full potential. Yes the toxic masculine is a fact -but let it NOT be a heavy burden for men to carry! The healthy masculine is suppressed by these shadows. But ready for a coming out!
TIME TO TAKE YOUR SWORD and find your VALUES in life. Lead us into the new world. Letting go of the old stigma that is attached to being masculine. Step into your masculine power now.

To respect the safety of the women who are serving: no contact with these serving women outside the training. No seeking each other on Facebook or such. If you should meet outside of the training there will be no discussing the practices. All practices during the training remain secret and sacred and will not be talked about. We will create an app group for the men to keep up with each others process.


This training is for men who are ready to go the the next level of your masculine essence. There will not be only talk but a lot of ‘do’. The trainings are very physical. 
We will start with sitting down with your men friends and discuss what you are doing in your love and sex-life and what you are afraid of doing. The conversation are short and simple. Your brothers will give you a behavioral experiment, to get out of your comfort zone something you can do that will reveal something to you, or grant more freedom in your life. Men amongst each other should not tolerate mediocrity in one another. You can read ‘the way of the superior men” from the author David Deida to already get into the zone.

“In zes weken is er veel gebeurd. De richting die ik vanuit mijn binnenste al was ingeslagen heeft handen en voeten gekregen in het echte leven. Ik kende de kracht van het hoofd en het hart al, echter wist ik niet van de kracht van de lingam. ” BB (deelnemer Lioness Den)

“Voordat ik kwam was ik me bewust van een coping glimlach die ik opzette in contact met vrouwen. Nu ik bewust ben hoe de dingen werken heb ik gezien dat dit een feminine shield is wat ik heb ontwikkeld als een beschermingsmechanisme. Nu kan ik het afleggen. Hierdoor kan ik man zijn en me als man gedragen. “

“De eerste avond en ook in eerdere relaties zocht ik steeds een moeder; “geef mij geef mij”. Nu en ook de laatste avond sta ik, en geef ik zelf, in de overtuiging dat ik liefde ben. Dit is zo wezenlijk anders. Ik ben man.” DH (deelnemer Lioness Den)

“Guys, if you consider partaking but you are scared, let me tell you, it only sounds dangerous, but it’s actually really nice. M.K.

Marcia knows what she’s doing. ‘Dark masculine’ often sounds real crazy to me, scary, unpredictable and uncontrollable. I guess that’s what it should sound like 😛 there is nothing really crazy about it though, just stepping in your deep power, allowing yourself to have desires and to express them. Nobody will judge you there, it’s all for the sake of collective evolution. Enjoy the ride!” Nikolas (attended Priestess Retreat 2019)

“Ik ben een andere man. Ik zal nooit meer hetzelfde naar vrouwen kijken. Ik begrijp nu veel beter wat presence is en wat het betekent om man te zijn. Ik had er een verwrongen beeld van. Nu weet ik dat vrouwen mij willen zien in al mijn zijn, emoties, flaws en onzekerheden, zolang ik maar present ben. Het was ongelooflijk helend om mezelf zo kwetsbaar te laten zien en door Shakti volledig ontvangen te worden. Ik was zoekende naar purpose. Een nieuw purpose van me is om de Shiva te zijn die beeldschone Shakti’s, zoals jij ze opleidt, helemaal kan ontvangen. Ik wil een betere man zijn. Zodra ik dit voelde, had dezelfde dag een van de vrouwen mij alweer naar een hoger niveau getild. Nu wil ik meer, verder.Diep respect voor wat je met de ladies hebt gedaan. Wat ze in mij los wist te maken, was ongelooflijk. Ik had high hopes, en die zijn nog ver overtroffen. Woorden schieten me te kort. Ik heb al veel gedaan in zelfontwikkeling. Ik ben bij een paar van de grootste influencers in de wereld geweest, bijvoorbeeld Tony Robbins. Maar wat ik met het retreat heb meegemaakt… Dat heb ik nergens anders en de resultaten zijn echt van wereldniveau. Het is een van de beste ervaringen van mijn leven geweest.Mike (attendant Priestess Retreat 2019)
