Embodying Shakti: Awakening Sacred Power in your Body, Mind and Speech

Sep 04 - 09, 2016 Begins in 1 month
with Sally Kempton & Silvia Nakkach

In this highly practical retreat, two powerful teachers will initiate you into core sacred practices from the tantric traditions of goddess wisdom. Silvia Nakkach’s work with healing sounds, voice, and Indian ragas will combine with Sally Kempton’s meditative and mythopoetic teachings. “We’ll chant medicine melodies, move, meditate with deity qualities, and deepen our relationship with devotional sound,” the leaders write. “Contemplative practices will help to open your subtle body. This work can dissolve subtle energetic blocks and awaken sacred energies.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
