“To love myself completely was the best outcome of this workshop. To look into my eyes in the mirror and saying “I love you”. I have gained Myself. I have lost self-pity, shame, helplessness. I feel a new Power to go for the unknown and come out of my comfort zone. My heart has started ruling me."
- Meera, Bangalore Shaktiship Graduate
"The 21-week Shaktiship has been one the most beautiful, empowering, challenging, awakening, invoking journey for me. It helped me open up in ways I never thought I would. I speak, walk, think, understand, and do things differently. I speak out boldly without aiming to hurt anybody’s feelings. I’ve learnt to acknowledge my emotions and “rock” with it."

RECLAIMING SACRED MASCULINE
"One of the most important things I gained is the ability to speak my truth in all situations. To be honest and authentic with myself, therefore providing the opportunity to be authentic in all my relationships. This has been sooooo profound!!! Like wow! I feel so free and complete to express any feelings and thoughts that may be keeping me from being authentic and I absolutely love this. I’ve also found by doing this, it gives those I interact with the permission to be authentic as well! Which is has overall deepened my relationships with those around me. "

COST OF PARTICIPATION
“I have very much enjoyed my experience with Shaktiship. My initial reason for wanting to join was to join a sisterhood of women and to support me in my experiences with my mom and sister which have been challenging at times. I had some powerful (internal) transformations in this realm and put up some clear boundaries which I hope will penetrate through time and space and allow women to know how I want to be treated. Despite the fact that it was online I felt a sweet connection to women and my local group should I want to reach out”

Exploring Blocks to our Creativity, Inner Critic, Negative Beliefs, Self-Acceptance.
The pedagogy of Shaktiship work is deeply grounded in a transformative learning model focused on a whole-person philosophy that integrates six areas of human development namely the physical, emotional, psychological, relational, creative and spiritual. Within the exploration, participants have the opportunity to locate and create the sacred arts - from creative writing to sacred drumming, from visual arts to embodied movement and ritual creation - that already live within them. Through this creative arts-based embodied model balanced with scholarly academic content, indigenous earth-based wisdom, and more, Shaktiship journey brings together a plethora of wisdom, practical tools and techniques that promote individual and collective healing, self-awareness, and self-authorization.
