If you’ve had any of these thoughts, I want to assure you:
You are NOT alone.
You are NOT broken.
And you absolutely CAN feel sexy again.
In fact, you can feel sexier than you’ve ever felt before... ever.
The truth is, immense pleasure and deep presence are already available to every one of us.
No matter who you are, it’s possible to live in a way where you’re constantly turned on — by yourself, as well as by your partner, your work, your mission, your creativity, your friendships, and your life in general; where you’re deeply connected to your body, your senses, your desires and the present moment...
But this awakening of your sensuality is not something that can be done by reading a book or listening to a podcast. This is something that must be felt, experienced, and integrated into your being, using the full breadth of your body, mind and soul...
Shiva Shakti Dance
Weekend IMMERSIONS & TRANSFORMATIONAL EXPERIENCES
Shiva Shakti Dance is an integrative dance practice that takes its inspiration from tantric philosophy, yogic tradition, belly dance, striptease, temple dance and more, to allow you to explore the divine polarity that exists within you — that is, your Shiva aspect (the masculine principle of consciousness, unwavering presence, and stillness) and your Shakti aspect (the feminine principle of universal energy, radiance, or you may simply call it ‘love’).
Embodying and integrating these two sides of yourself allows you to connect — on a visceral, feel-it-in-your-bones level — with the innate beauty, power and wisdom that lies within.
It’s also the key to living life in that electric ‘turned on’ state that so many of us have lost touch with, but that’s actually our natural state of being as women...
This practice isn’t about ‘teaching’ you stuff. It’s about helping you relax into and embrace what’s already there...
The truth is, you don’t need to ‘learn’ how to be sensual or sexy.
And you’re not ‘broken’ or in need of ‘fixing’.
Instead, we’ll be melting numbness, unravelling social conditioning, and shedding unwanted baggage so that your true, luminous self can stand tall as the whole, wild woman she already is.
As you peel back the layers, the movement helps to embed and integrate everything you unearth into your self, your psyche and your body so that you can take this (remembered) wisdom with you as you go about your day-to-day life.
All it takes is your awareness and a willingness to drop back into the flow of the feminine in your body.
... Quite literally, you’ll be reclaiming your ‘sexy’ through dance.
Your senses are longing to awaken. Your body is craving pleasure. Your heart is yearning for radiant love.
… Are you ready to say yes?
There are a few different
ways to practice:
Through this practice, you can expect to
transform your relationship with...
It can be very confusing when the passion you used to feel for your partner seems to fizzle out — or worse, when you start feeling energetically repulsed by the person you know you love. Shiva Shakti Dance helps you understand and restore the sexual polarity, freshness and curiosity that allows you to rekindle that attraction, reignite the torch of sexual passion, and evolve your relationship to a new level.
So many women feel ‘separate’ from their bodies. This unique embodiment practice teaches you how to be completely anchored in the present moment – connected to your physical being, tuned in to your body’s wisdom, and grounded in your energy centres. You’ll also discover that what your body can do (and how it can feel) is infinitely more alluring and significant than what it looks like on the outside.
It’s time to reclaim the naturalness, radiance and vitality of your sexuality!
Awaken the sensual woman within you who’s aching to be expressed and adored, and learn how to confidently express your erotic desires from your heart (without shame, guilt or fear).
Habitual patterns, constant busy-ness, and endless ‘doing’ all keep us stuck in the cycle of stress. This kind of devotional erotic dance is so powerful for getting you OUT of your head and back into your body, so you can switch off your mental mix-tape and free yourself from anxiety and overwhelm.
Immense pleasure is available to every woman in every moment. You’ll rediscover how it feels to connect with your senses, to get comfortable with receiving, to relish in even the most ordinary moments of life, and to relax into the constant aliveness and pleasure moving through your body.
Your future partner
When you’re grounded in your truth and expressing your full self, it becomes SO much easier to call in a similarly awakened partner, and experience a relationship where both parties are committed to honesty, depth, and loving expansion.
Through this communal practice, you’ll begin to appreciate the incredible beauty in all women… including yourself. As you’re welcomed into this warm and thriving sisterhood, you’ll effortlessly create new friendships, experience the blissful feeling of true belonging, and leave behind the old paradigms of competition, judgement and comparison.
As you surrender to dance as a spiritual pathway, you’ll notice a quality of universal love flowing through you, opening you up to a divine embrace beyond your own individuality. As you move further along the journey, you’ll find ‘your’ dance dissolving, as the dance of life moves through you with grace, intelligence and effortlessness.
So much of women’s sexuality is shrouded in shame, silence and secrecy. Which is why we place so much emphasis on creating a sacred and supportive environment: so that you feel safe and held as you step outside your comfort zone. You’ll be lovingly invited to explore deep-seated parts of yourself, venture into your vulnerability, and unearth new frontiers on the most important journey of your life: the one home to you.
Most importantly of all, you’ll transform your relationship with yourself.
You’ll feel more self-confidence, freedom and beauty in just being you.
As well as having heaps of fun, and expressing that truth inside you that’s been yearning to be set free, you’ll experience the foundation-shifting feeling of being turned on by your own life…
In short, you’ll have awakened the wild, sensual, luminous woman within.
“But what if
Most women come to their first Shiva Shakti session feeling scared, vulnerable and overwhelmed with nerves… So please know that you’re not alone, and this fear is totally normal. (After all, many of us have gone our entire lives without ever exploring our full potential as an embodied woman.)
The good news is, the nerves are simply another aspect of the journey. And there’s so much power in showing up just as you are, with all your resistance and worries and doubts in tow.
As with most things in life, the hardest part is that first act of showing up. From there, most women report that their nerves start to melt away right from the very first exercise...
“This has been by far the scariest and most liberating experience in my life. Years of Yoga, Reiki, meditation, and psychologists have not had the same effect as this one weekend. The facilitators make you feel loved and secure in a very vulnerable state and environment. I came away feeling more confident, free and happier than I have felt in years.”
“I felt a little nervous before the workshop but I didn't really know what I was getting in too so I was actually quite excited! The workshop was so many things.... I loved it but also found it very challenging. I pushed through so much fear & felt the freedom on the other side. It was a safe space to explore my sexual feminine energy through dance. I was enlightening and refreshing. I felt supported and encouraged. It was so much fun yet such a deep experience too.”
So if you are currently feeling butterflies in your stomach, extreme nervousness, or the desire to curl up in a ball and hide...take a breath, it's totally normal. And I promise: it won't last long.
In fact, these feelings can be a good thing. Consider the intensity of the energy in your body, and all those feelings of vulnerability and uncertainty… are they so different from falling in love? Perhaps you're just about to fall in love?!
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF LIKE NEVER BEFORE?
What a thrill!
