6:30pm – 8:30pm
Venue will be sent to you when you register
Registration Closes 48-hours before each Shakti Circle!

Our monthly meetings … the beginning of an era…. stepping out into the world with grace, strength and connection. Dive into the energy of Shakti: which is defined as the female principle of divine energy, especially when personified as the supreme deity.

Shakti is you who cannot be contained. It is the universal power and the unexplainable movement of energy.  Shakti is the dynamic quality that is pumping the blood through our veins, flowing the breath through our lungs and connecting us energetically to others. It’s the energy that creates everything. She connects us all and she is all.

WHY is this important now? Because the Divine Feminine is what will save this planet. Because for so long the power and independence of the Divine Feminine has not been honored. Because it is time to use our feminine power for healing, evolution and growth. Because the next seven generations of beings on this planet needs us to step into our power … now.

All meetings are at 6:30pm

BEING IN CIRCLE breaks open the heart and when women gather, relaxing into the power of Shakti, it creates the potential for miracles to manifest. How this circle will unfold is unknown, it is divine and you will be a part of it.

HOW SHAKTI relates to the moon. SHE is the moon … the moon is the Feminine. Understanding her rhythms and cycles and how they relate to you, is imperative in evolving and aligning with your soul’s calling. What’s new this cycle? What sign is the Moon in? How does that relate to your chart and intentions? How can this energy support your manifestations? How can your thoughts sabotage the energy?

Come explore the New Moon via ritual, community, connection and love as we gather together to release what no longer serves and embrace the manifesting power and potential of a new seed planted and intentions witnessed.

Pleasure Point Yoga

Want to learn to use your abdominal muscles properly; truly finding freedom and strength in fun postures? Fearful of going upside down? Core stabilization improves your postural alignment, relieves low back pain and leaves you with an overall feeling of internal strength and confidence.

Join Dana for a playful workshop and exploration on our hands! This workshop is geared towards both beginners and seasoned flyers. We explore the foundation of arm balancing, the technicalities of leaving the ground on our hands and the buoyant mindset needed to maintain the balance. We’ll begin with Bakasana (Crow) and explore other poses such as Side Crow, Flying Pigeon, Grasshopper, Eka Pada Koundinyasana, Handstand, Headstand, Forearm Balance, Scorpion and many other variations.

Beginners will learn how to enter these poses, advanced practitioners will learn new entries and possibilities. Come with questions, playfulness and leave with a renewed outlook on what you THINK you can do and what you really CAN do!

August 11-15
Walker Creek Ranch

1700 Marshall Petaluma Rd, Petaluma CA
$777 for both Mother and Daughter

Take a long weekend to get connected with your daughter before school starts again. During our time together we will unite, play, laugh, create and collaborate. There will be time for the girls to hang out with each other while the mothers connect and share ideas, stories and wisdom.

My belief is that we get so busy and life is not going to slow down anytime soon. One day we will wake up and the girls will be driving away. The time is now to bond and set seeds of unconditional love and acceptance in this all important and potent relationship.

We will spend time outdoors and team build for greater awareness of our strengths and ability to elevate each other in small groups. The world is full of competition and greed … if we can get together – with our daughters and show them just how powerful support and connection is, we may just begin to change the world… one little relationship at a time.


all proceeds go to girls elevate

Interested in raising awareness about the self-esteem and emotional health of our girls?

What about hot topics like body image, communication skills and social media usage of our teenagers?

Want to help teach our children how to function consciously in a world that moves faster than we can ever keep up with?

Then join Girls Elevate creator, Dana Damara as she shares her plans to make a difference. Not only for our girls, but for our boys. Not only for a connection between mother and daughter but a connection between father and son. Not only offering tools for parents but learning tools for children. Not only a job for the educators but for an opportunity for educators and parents to come together in support of our children.

Why? Because what we do now effects the next seven generations. I think we can make a difference.
