Embracing Feminine Power, Love & Wisdom
'A tree that does not dance with the wind is a tree that snaps. The strength of the true arrow (Shiva) lies in its capacity to give itself to the 'wobble', to the curve of the feminine (Shakti). What a birth-day it is when the duo are in divine marriage within.' Sri Saraswathi Ma
Beloved sisters, I invite you to join head, heart and hand as we journey into a new world.
We hold life – this is our divine spark. We know – we feel – we must – we are already – it is given. We are part of the dreaming. And it is time. The return of the Sacred Feminine Consciousness is upon us. The feminine must lead the way back to balance. We need the union of the two principles – sacred feminine in balance with sacred masculine.
The feminine is the spark, the initiator. And the feminine must initiate the healing, the rebalancing. This is womb wisdom. The wisdom of the Mother of all life that we hold within us. It is up to us to light the fire that will blaze across the earth and leave behind glowing embers of a new light, a new dawn.
I invite the sisterhood to circle together as one as we dance our way through the dark-light of life. A dance that is bigger and more wondrous than we can ever imagine. When we gather in sacred circle, we generate Shakti, and in doing so, we transmute suffering in both men & women. Together we have the power to create life anew. When we transform within, everything without must also change. Woman-change means world-change.
So, it is Womb-time. Woman-time. Her-time. It is time for women to circle together as one womb, the circle of life itself. It is time to redefine what it means to be successful, to be powerful, to be feminine - what it means to be truly, wholly (holy) woman. It is time to listen deeply to our knowing and to the calling of the world, the calling of our Great Mother. It is time to inspire and be inspired. It is time to 'be the change we want to see in the world' at this great turning point in our times.
It is time to bring it all home, to gather in - to feel the pain, the guilt, the shame, the inheritance of our mothers, grandmothers and grandmothers and the long held beliefs that keep us shackled to untruth. It is time to gather the courage and willingness to dive into the depths of our darkness, individual and collective. There is no separation - our wombs are connected through the web of life. It is time to bring all of it into the light of our consciousness to birth ourselves anew. It is time to recreate our lives to live in joy, in love, in beauty and in service to each other and the planet. In healing ourselves, we heal the planet.
It is time to join together as a community (common-unity) of women consciously engaging as a powerful force for change, for evolution. This is our response-ability, our offering and our quest.
It is time to awaken the beauty and power of the feminine through surrender to Her, to hear the call of Mother Earth, to offer ourselves and in doing so receive from Her in abundance. It is time to align with our highest calling, our unique soul purpose here on earth and the greatest vision of the future we have the possibility to imagine. Our dream-seed waiting to bear fruit.
Sisters, let us gather in the dreamtime to vision a new world, a new way of being, 'being earth' - loving, caring, nourishing all of life. Let us begin with ourselves - loving, nurturing and empowering ourselves and each other. Let us grow and nurture a better world together - for ourselves, for our children, for our children's children and for all of life.
Sisters, I invite you to bring your unique, beautiful, radiant self fully into this great dance of life. Join me to gather-in, transform and celebrate our womanhood in joy, depth and wonder. We must recognise the goddess dancing through each other as the divine creative spark of life. Many small sparks of light will create one great big fire, lighting the fire of collective transformation. Women on fire will blaze the way across the earth and out of the ashes She will rise - a new earth and a new dawn.
in love & service

'Words limit the depth of experience I have encountered sitting in circle with sisters of the ‘Shakti Temple’ at Zu Studios. Each session is carved out of sharing the remarkable individual sister’s journeys, underpinned by the collective journey that resonates deep within each one of us. These are extraordinary times and to share how individuals respond to their journeys is profound, to say the least. I am deeply grateful to have found this space to support my journey with my 21 year old son who is currently exploring an integrated treatment approach to cancer. What a gift, to be blessed with a space to find meaning, to connect and feel supported, to talk, listen, laugh, cry, touch, hug, sing, dance, move and to find stillness. Thank you Abhijeeta for you abundant love and facilitating this extraordinary Shakti Temple!' Kriyasagar
