Claiming our freedom and living fully embodied lives

By Rhianne van der Linde | May 24, 2019

If we’re honest, what we’re all really looking for is freedom. But what is it? What is freedom?  And how do we realise true freedom? What does it take to claim our freedom…?  And what does it mean to live a fully embodied life? Recently, I participated in a 4-part Autumn walk series. Our first…

Freedom is knowing that there is no right and there is no wrong.

By Rhianne van der Linde | May 24, 2019

  In July 2018, Karin Ritchie & I co-facilitated a retreat exploring Freedom & the Nervous System. This retreat was already in the planning when Shakti died and it was with tender delight that we were able to go ahead and offer it to a small group of women. It felt like an incredible honouring of…

Shooting the arrow…

By Tiffany Bowns Stone | July 9, 2018

Responding to a query received about the upcoming course, Sexual Shadow Integration: A 9-month online deep dive into your sexual unconscious, I reflected on the observation (at least in my experience) of how often “women’s work” and other spiritual awakening type programs are characterized by a general avoidance of the “highly sexualized” aspects of our…

Dancing with the Dead…

By Tiffany Bowns Stone | July 4, 2018

In my post last week, “from Tarot to Tantra and back again”, I mentioned the tendency that those aspects of ourselves which have been relegated to the deep underworld of our unconscious have of finding their way to the surface and wreaking havoc with our consciously constructed lives…until we stop and consciously embrace and face…

From Tantra to Tarot and back again…

By Tiffany Bowns Stone | June 29, 2018

Recently I have taken a foray into the discovery and learning of Tarot…   Tarot was always something in the field of my awareness that held an enormous attraction, but was not something that I felt confident to explore, or learn. Something I told myself that I was not skilled or intuitive enough to do…let…

What is Sexual Trauma?

By Tiffany Bowns Stone | May 10, 2018

We have just emerged from a glorious deep dive with our fellow sentient beings on a 4-day rustic dolphin encounter exploring Intelligence, Breath & Heart in Malongane, Mozambique – the place where Heaven meets Earth. Our time spent on the wide expansive ocean, dropping into our liquid bodies, feeling our breath and connecting intimately with…

Are you paying attention to your dreams?

By Tiffany Bowns Stone | October 5, 2017

I absolutely love my night-time dreams. Often they feel like my very own “mini-series”, however despite them being enjoyable to experience and interesting to witness, I don’t pay nearly enough attention to the wealth of valuable information they contain or in the symbols they offer as I feel quite unskilled at interpreting them.   Occasionally,…

Tantric Fantasies and Realities

By Shakti Malan | June 9, 2017

In the public imagination, it seems Tantra is still synonymous with happy-ending massages, wild sexual orgies and staring into the eyes of strangers who are butt-naked, just like you. While this version of Tantra is certainly doing its bit for shaking up rigid sexual mind-sets, it’s a far way off from the essence of Tantric…

Discovering a deeper meaning to the word Acceptance

By Shakti Malan | June 9, 2017

I wake up this morning in the house of friends who gave me shelter after evacuating my home in the forest with massive fires raging all around. It’s dark outside  – midwinter darkness at 5.30am – and a perfectly full moon is occupying in the sky, like one bright, all-seeing eye. I will remember this…

Call Me Daddy’s Little Girl

By Shakti Malan | May 22, 2017

I’m deep in the throes of what I thought was a passionate sexual attraction. Clothes are coming off, hearts are beating fast, lips and sexual organs are colliding. I’m looking deep into his eyes – and then I discover – he’s not really looking at me. Suddenly, I remember: ah, we’re doing that again. We’re…
