Embodying Shakti: Awakening Sacred Power through Sound, Meditation and Voice

Sep 09 - 14, 2018 Begins in 3 weeks
with Sally Kempton & Silvia Nakkach

This workshop explores sacred technology that can dissolve energetic blocks and awaken empowering energies. We’ll open up a pathway for new insights through initiatory experiences from both Eastern mysticism and Western shamanic healing. During this workshop, Silvia will offer healing sessions using sound, voice, and Indian ragas that combine with Sally’s meditative and mythopoetic teachings that spring from goddess-based practice. We’ll chant medicine melodies, practice mindful movement, meditate with deity qualities, and deepen our relationships with devotional sound.



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