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, your being, and your humanity. Its intention is to give you access to your pure potential and unique essence as an individual - empowering you to find your wings and fly.

The Academy was founded by Shakti Malan in 2017. In the years before her death, she shared her transmissions, wisdom and experience from her deepest vulnerability and humanness. This ethos of depth, vulnerability and honoring of the human and divine sides of self continue with the Academy.

The Academy is run and managed by co-directors Claire Rumore & Rhianne van der Linde who studied and worked alongside Shakti for many years. They are honored to be working in collaboration with various trusted colleagues and facilitators in this learning space, all of whom have had direct exposure to as well as immersion in Shakti's teachings or whose teachings resonate closely with the essence of Shakti's work in the world.




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 in 2017, the Academy has two tracks of programs based on the body of work developed by Shakti over the course of her career.

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 a facilitation training program to become a certified Sexual Awakening for Women facilitator. Through this program you will be trained to bring the awareness and focus of reclaiming the feminine, which is much needed for this 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. Through the trainings we offer, you will shift from "feeling better" to "feeling more".  You will then grow up instead of fill up.

We very much look forward to supporting you on your journey of deep self-examination and personal and professional development.

The Illusions (and Delusions) of Gender: A Brief (Yet Important) Intro to Gender Non-Binary Identites, Experiences, and Terminology

Art by Elisa Riemer Gender, even though it may seem to be as natural as the air we breathe and the water we swim in, is actually -primarily- a construct, based on much cultural-specific conditioning, training, and expectation. The gender binary was created to classify humans into one of two categories: man OR woman.  However, history and research both show that there are far more gender identities than just these two.  The term “non-binary” is used to describe people who cannot, according to their self-perception, be defined (or contained) within these socially stereotyped and limited gender identities of man OR woman. Something that still confuses people is the difference between the terms gender nonconforming and gender non-binary. A woman, cis or trans, and regardless of her affective-sexual orientation (who she has romantic/sexual relations with), may not fit the feminine pattern expected by society. This means that this person has a behavior that is said to be gender non-conforming as opposed to gender non-binary, which does not mean that she does not continue…


The Polarized, Manic Teachings of the Solstice: Understanding Polarities, the Subconscious, and the Darkest (or Lightest!) Time of the Year

It’s Solstice! Summer Solstice if you’re in the northern hemisphere and Winter Solstice if you’re in the southern hemisphere. Solstice is such a mysterious and powerful time, marking the turning of the wheel of the year via the longest day (or night ~ depending on where you are!) of the year. This is the time of year when the mysteries of light and dark are most obvious. On Solstice you’re immersed in either the most light or the most dark of the solar spin. And both LIGHT and DARK have a mysterious teaching for us. Light and Dark could be said to be the ultimate POLARITY. What’s a polarity? Polarities are the pairs of opposites comprising existence that ignite in us (and often trap us in) a sense of who we are and who we are not, what we are attracted to and what we are repulsed by, as well as what we desire and what we fear.   Polarities generate a separation and often a (manic and unconscious) swinging between the two…


The 5 Immediate Benefits of Awakening Your Feminine Sexual Essence

There’s a good chance you were never taught about the intricacies of having a female body and the profound power of the feminine sexual essence that that body contains. And you’re not alone. Few of us -men, women, non-binary- truly understand what our bodies and our sexualities are capable of. We may learn how to maneuver our sexual selves mechanically, but how do we align body with heart with mind with spirit with sex? Shakti Malan, founder of the Shakti Shiva Academy, spent her life exploring these realms and mapping the terrain. In our Awakening Feminine Sexual Essence course, you’ll experience what it’s like to live from inside an awakened heart and a body open to full sexual flowering. So why bother to take a course like this? What are some of the benefits? With the help of a course like this, you’ll be much closer to entering into your sexual body as woman with comfort, understanding, and joy. The pressures to perform, to look a certain way, to behave a…
