SHAKTI CIRCLE: FULL MOON GATHERING

Wednesday, September 14
6:30pm – 8:30pm
Private Home in Greenbrae - address will be sent upon registration
Registration Closes 24-hours before each Shakti Circle!

$22

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 start promptly 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 Full 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.

However that doesn’t mean we have to wait for our children to grow up and move away to bring balance, connection and love into our lives.

Reduce your stress, create space and time for self-care, experience enlightened relationships, attract what you really want and live a life full of truth, freedom and love. Be prepared to change your life: Includes yoga, and integrative activities that incorporate essential oils, prayer, sacred technologies, Goddess work, and meditation/journaling techniques to keep you connected.

LUNAR ALCHEMY: Retreat to Tulum

April 9-14, 2017
Alaya Tulum 
with support from Life Source Retreats
Tulum, Mexico

Tulum is a magical place, and I'm excited to be returning once more to Alaya Tulum for a week long retreat. We'll be there during the Full Moon. 

Why the Full Moon?

Because when we align ourselves with the moon and it’s mystical cycles, we can’t help but create magic within ourselves and in our life. I’m thinking Tulum will be a great place to manifest all of this.

During this retreat you will have the opportunity to experience: yoga, meditation, energy healing, a Mayan Mud Circle, Temazcal, Full Moon Ceremony, drumming, dance, Shakti practices, excursions, and time alone to recharge, realign and reconnect.

Join Dana Damara for a special overnight retreat. It's a weekend of Mother-Daughter yoga, food, and connection, all set on a gorgeous English-style Farmhouse on acres of farmland 90-minutes away from San Francisco.

Take a weekend to get connected with your daughter. 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.

Stay tuned for registration and details...
