Shakti Shiva Academy has been created as a quantum learning portal enabling You to discover the essence of what You are and to embody That in your life and your sexuality.

Unlike most academies, this one cares deeply about your body and your humanity. It’s intention is to give you access to your pure potential and unique essence as an individual - empowering you to find your wings and fly. Additionally, you get to be part of an open community in ongoing inquiry as to how we can embody Love more fully. Founded by Shakti Malan she has shared her transmissions, wisdom and experience from her deepest vulnerability and humanness, and this ethos continues with the Academy.

We walk alongside each other in this discovery, supporting each other through our mutual openness and availability to listen and respond to life. The Academy is run and managed by Tiffany Stone & Rhianne van der Linde who have been working alongside Shakti for many years and are now honored to have the collaboration of various trusted colleagues and facilitators in this learning space, all of whom have had direct exposure and immersion in Shakti's teachings. There is also a profound level of support from the invisible realms. With the knowing that time and space is our infinite playground, let’s seize the day and make the most of this precious human life - together.





This 7-week home study course is a primer for the more comprehensive 9-month deep dive course called Sexual Shadow Integration Work.

The modules of this course are based on the Basic Sexual Shadow Work book written by Shakti Malan, the founder of the Shakti Shiva Academy. Through this course you will be empowered to awaken and access the true power of your sexuality, delving into the dimensions of your sexuality that express themselves from your unconscious, or what Jung referred to as the shadow.


Starting May 2021, a live 9-month online personal intensive.

Experience living every day as the Awake Feminine whose sexuality is natural and wild, unfettered by the past, and an expression of deep love and creative abundance.

During the nine months of the Personal Intensive, we will work through many of the practices in Shakti Malan's book Sexual Awakening for Women, which is the culmination of her years of work with thousands of women from across the world (an ebook version is included in the training). By the end of the nine months, these practices and subtle, blissful ways of being in your sexual body will have become your natural state. You will have formed lasting bonds with a group of women from around the world with whom you have shared this journey of discovery and embodiment in a container of rich and meaningful sharing.


Starting February 2021, a 6-Module (3-month) Online Course to support you in meeting your inner masculine and feminine aspects and learn how these are impacting your relationship life. "As Within So Without".

This course is open to men and women and forms pat of the longer Totality Therapy Facilitator Training.


Starting April 2022, a 9-month deep dive into your sexual unconscious. This course is open to men and women and forms part of the longer Totality Therapy Facilitator Training.

Sexual Shadow Integration Work is a process of working with our unconscious and conscious selves to seek liberation. Sexual Shadow Integration Work addresses the dimensions of our sexuality that are held in the unconscious.

During this course, we will systematically immerse ourselves in the main themes that express in people’s sexual shadow lives. Through sexual shadow work, we get to see that by consciously, lovingly and playfully engaging with what we have not allowed ourselves to fully see in our sexuality, not only relieves us of much shame and guilt but more importantly – it gives us access to aspects of our psyches that have been calling for our attention.


A 7-Module home study course to Initiate Your True Sexual Flowering is a stand-alone course and works as a primer for the more comprehensive 9-month Sexual Awakening for Women Intensive.

Over the course of seven modules, you will be guided through visualisations, subtle movement and breath, and other practices to drop deep into your sexual body and discover the sacred essence of the Feminine in you.



Shakti Shiva Academy is a quantum learning portal for discovering your unique essence as an expression of Life’s Essence - and cultivating the art of embodying that in your life and your sexuality.

Founded by Shakti Malan, the Academy has two currents. The first is a pathway of learning and facilitation training specifically focused on feminine sexual essence. Based on Shakti's book Sexual Awakening for Women, The Academy provides facilitation training required to become a certified Sexual Awakening for Women facilitator to bring the awareness and focus of reclaiming the feminine, which is much needed in a world that has become hyper-masculine in a painfully distorted way.

The second current is open to all genders and invites you to a radical exploration of your potential through the excavation of your shadow and sexuality. It is radical in that this work invites you to constantly meet the edges of who you perceive yourself to be, both in your sexuality and with your conscious and unconscious creations.

Our work here goes against the direction of much modern Tantric practice which is only interested in having you feel good and having a fantastic sexual experience.

Because we know that sexual energy is the very substance of your vital life force and not just some genital affair, our exploration invites us to open to the entire width and depth of human experience. There will be no full opening to ecstasy without being willing to meet the agony of places that have been left ignored and unloved in the shadows of our being. We are invited to become full and rounded human beings, waking up to our essential nature as Love and Truth, and fully engaged in the wild adventure of learning how to embody That, all the way into our sexuality.

We discover the profound intelligence and sensitivity of our genitals and stop using them in ways that are just not honoring.

Have you been feeling “frozen” and scared lately? And ways to warm up and feel again.

How are you fairing in these very intense times? There’s clearly so much happening around our globe, and a lot of it can be really unsettling, upsetting and even downright terrifying. You might find yourself feeling “frozen” at times, unable to think clearly or stay present. We hope you are taking really good care of yourselves in these tender times… In “triggering” moments, regardless of what big emotion a certain experience is triggering (activating), it can be very easy to “check out” and disassociate from what we are feeling. To distract ourselves with t.v., video games, or social media, to numb ourselves with food or drink, to attempt to hideout in artificially induced good feelings (like with sex or substances) instead of staying with what’s actually happening and what we’re actually feeling in the moment. These “check out” responses are natural and entirely understandable when we’re feeling scared and overwhelmed. Who wouldn’t want to go hide and find “safety”? Life is scary and overwhelming at times. However… “checking out” when…


Mind, Maturation and Living in the Moment – Is there any greater Freedom than this?

Much of the work of Tantra is about uncovering and integrating what has been lying hidden in the unconscious. The unconscious is where we store all suppressed experience, which includes all of the experiences – big or small – that were too much for us to feel to their depths at the time they happened. Overwhelming experiences can include anything from an overt sexual violation all the way to that moment in our proverbial development when our mother decided not to breastfeed us any more. If the feelings that arose as a consequence of ‘the incident’ were too much for us to deal with at the time, they ultimately got stored in our unconscious to be revisited another time. Following here, Tantra teacher Sw. Rahasya Advait describes an aspect of the workings of the mind in the following excerpt from his blog (intended for those who are being guided by a Dakini or other teacher/practitioner and which will also perhaps be useful to those who take their spiritual journey with…

The Rocky Horror Tantra Book by Swami Rahasya (Ebook)

“Swami Rahasya is as much a rascally trickster as he is a serious pundit of Tantric Spirituality. He uses tongue-and-cheek, irony, and colourful stories (personal, archetypal, and beyond) to share the high teachings of the Tantric adepts of old.” The Rocky Horror Tantra Book is a deep exploration of Tantric practice and has become a standard…


heart meditation

Heart Meditation by Rahasya

Heart meditation is an absolutely essential technique for Tantrikas. For some, it’s of significant benefit from time to time. For many of us, it’s a favourite regular practice.

It’s useful for handling pain, hurt and other sufferings which weren’t (couldn’t be) felt in fullness at the time of occurrence, though it’s much more than a “medicine”.

We have hurt, suffering that we’ve resisted, that we’ve “put away for later”. Tantra says: now IS later.

It is a truly deep, transcendent and above all practical meditation, practiced in more or less this way for thousands of years.

death meditation

Death Meditation by Rahasya

Awareness of death, knowing and fully accepting its inevitability, is a valuable step for a seeker.

This advanced meditation technique is particularly accessible when you have the feeling called “loneliness”. This technique enables that feeling to be accepted and deepened into aloneness, or all-oneness.

This audio is intended to get you familiar with the practice of Death Meditation, and give you a taste of its gorgeous depths, that you may find it as valuable support on the path as we do.
