Dolphins and Tantra in Mozambique this March with Shakti!


Year Schedule

Waking up to Bliss

A Wild Dolphin Retreat with Shakti Malan and Courtney Ward

Thursday 1st - Sunday 4th March 2012

The year 2012 is a time of celebration for those of us who have chosen to dedicate our lives to waking up spiritually. We have been working hard at clearing, and now it is time to surrender into Bliss. Come drop into the joyful support of the dolphins, and open to what they have to share through the wise practices of Tantra. Tantra is an ancient mystery tradition that focuses on awakening, this lifetime, through total immersion in presence in every aspect of our lives, including our sexuality.

On this retreat you will
• Experience the dropping of body armoring so that you can open to the bliss of this moment
• Learn to use the breath as an instrument of deep pleasure and bliss
• Come home into your own blissful, sexually ecstatic body
• Open to the flow of awakened life force, or kundalini, in your life

Your facilitators:


Shakti is a Tantra teacher or dakini and member of the Advait Tantraschool (tantraschool.co.za). She does sessions, workshops, courses and retreats in South Africa and across the world. Her central approach is to enter the totality of experience as a gateway to awakening. Shakti believes that sexuality is the field which most powerfully directs us to this gateway. For more on her work, see www.shakti.co.za and www.totalitytherapy.com

Shakti is well loved as a group work facilitator because of her ability to sense and respond to the spirit of the group. This skill comes from her academic training (Ph.D. in Social Anthropology), her immersion in shamanic psychology (specifically process work psychology) and the somatic/kinaesthetic awareness she has developed as a dakini. Shakti developed a dance form called BlissDance which she uses in her teaching. The awakening of Spirit in the Body in her work happens as we release body armoring and become more and more aware of subtle sensory experience. In her personal journey, Shakti has been profoundly affected by the dolphins, and she works in deep resonance with them.
