Sexual Shadow Work & Integration A 9-Month Online Deep Dive into Your Sexual Unconscious
HOW TO BECOME A FORCE OF DESIRE AND EMBRACE ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR CONSCIOUS SEXUALITY
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.
What this means is that what plays out in our sexuality is often the result of beliefs or experiences that live in our unconscious. In other words, we are not fully aware of them and have not embraced them with awareness and love.
This course addresses, in a profound way, questions such as:
- What to do about sexual fantasy arising?
- How do I free myself from the memory of sexual trauma?
- What are affairs about?
- How can I overcome the shame, guilt and embarrassment that comes up for me around sex?
- What if I don’t feel any sexual desire?
"Since taking this course, things have shifted so much that I am now even willing to consider myself a sexual being and I am no longer ashamed to speak of sexuality. I can speak into this area with my patients and I have written blogs now that speak into this area which I never would have been able to do previously." - Jan Bull, Toronto, Canada
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.
You will have the opportunity to:
- discover and release suppressed anger or fear,
- unpack your relationship with power (power over, power under dynamics)
- learn about your unconscious ancestral dynamics at play, and
- disarm shocks and traumas from infancy and childhood
During these 9 months, you will learn an enormous amount about yourself. By engaging in sexual shadow integration work you will navigate through the murky terrain of personal and collective sexual shadow - gifting you with the capacity to hold everything that arises for you in love and clarity.
HERE IS WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
MONTH 1: EXPLORING SEXUAL SHADOW & DESIRE (July 2020)
Exploring Eros as a pathway into the unconscious and why our lovemaking is not yet the ultimate meditation. Why we need to spend time at the walls of the outer temple of desire and fantasy before we can enter into the pure presence of the inner temple. Discover why the erotic is such a valuable tool for integrating what is in the unconscious. We will look at five reasons to embrace our desire and engage with a practice to meet and embrace our sexual shadow.
MONTH 2: YOUTH, INNOCENCE AND VIRGINITY (August 2020)
Furthering our exploration of desire and discover how to move beyond objective to subjective desire. Engaging in a practice of holding sensations in awareness, discovering our own holiness and embracing the qualities of innocence and pure presence.
MONTH 3: THE LAW OF DUALITY (September 2020)
If we desire to move from a place where our reality is defined by our ego, to living from our soul’s truth, it is valuable to be able to identify and integrate the polarities from which we unconsciously live. During this module we will engage in Polarity Processing, a key method for the transformation and integration of unconscious material.
MONTH 4: FROZEN IN THE ACT (October 2020)
Understanding the Law of Duality, we realize that as desire is discovered, so are we presented with the opportunities to face our fears. In this module we will explore archetypal fears that arise from the unconscious and investigate ways in which our fears of being shamed, humiliated, embarrassed or feeling guilty show up in our erotic lives and how to work with them.
MONTH 5: DANCING WITH THE DEAD (November 2020)
In this module, we will examine how to free ourselves from the unconscious contracts and addiction patterns around intimacy inherited from our ancestors that have shaped our current relationship with sexuality. How to become the creators of our own experiences.
MONTH 6: POWER OF THREE (December 2020)
A significant pattern that is revealed when the unconscious gets integrated is that, somewhere along the line, we have felt like we were victims. Where there is a victim, there is a rescuer and a perpetrator. In this module we will explore the Karpman Drama Triangle and how to free ourselves from the cycle of repetition.
MONTH 7: DOMINATION CAN BE SUBTLE (January 2021)
In this module we will explore ways of entering into power and control eroticism as well as explore anger as an emotion that can be hard to let ourselves feel. We will look into conscious and unconscious power dynamics in relationships as well as submission versus control and bondage. We will engage with exercises to release anger in safe ways and how to balance our energy after venting.
MONTH 8: WILD, PUBLIC & NOT-SO-PUBLIC (February 2021)
In this module, we will explore erotic fantasy themes that are a taboo-breaking response to traditional ideas. Specifically, the themes are threesomes, group & public sex, extramarital sex, wilderness fantasies and exploring our wild instinctual animal natures.
MONTH 9: RELEASING SEXUAL TRAUMA (March 2021)
Here we will get a basic understanding of what sexual trauma is, how it is stored in the unconscious, how it becomes conscious and how sexual trauma can be released. You will see that our sexual body can show trauma responses even when we have had no overt sexual trauma. We will develop a relationship with our wise body and learn to trust the nervous system. We will engage in practices and exercises to find your conscious NO and YES enabling us to become fully embodied while honouring our story and receiving our gifts of experience and healing.
HERE ARE BONUSES THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE
BONUS RECORDING: Conscious BDSM - A Tantra Talk by Shakti Malan.
We are delighted to offer this previously unreleased recording from Shakti’s USA teaching tour in 2011. BDSM is in essence, working with our erotic response as it connects to power and the purpose of this work is using erotic exploration as a way to awaken consciousness. In this talk (2hrs19 mins), Shakti shares an introduction and background to BDSM and speaks to association in eroticism and the dynamic between arousal and fear in our eroticism. She explores an aspect of the work looking at the relationship between the inner feminine and inner masculine and the dynamic of the ‘junior male’ and the ’senior male’ where our association in patriarchy is with power being masculine. Shakti unpacks the Structure of BDSM (The Petition and the Roles of Dom & Sub), investigates the Drama Triangle of victim-rescuer-persecutor and lastly looks at how to work with the Nervous System.
BONUS CALL with Guest Teacher Lisa Grace (Module 4: Thursday 22 October 2020)
Having plunged into the San Francisco Bay Area kink scene in 2005 and then becoming a devoted student of Shakti Malan’s in 2010, Lisa has been straddling the worlds of BDSM and Tantra for the last decade. Superficially believed to be mutually exclusive practices, you’ll notice in the Sexual Shadow Integration Work course that BDSM is mentioned as a way to process fantasy and move towards the real of relating. In this bonus call, Lisa will share some of her story of discovery and explore how these energetic arts actually do serve each other. An opportunity to bring your judgments, bring your fears, and bring your questions. Lisa's bonus call on our 7-week Basic Sexual Shadow Work mini-course was so well received and enjoyed that we've arranged another opportunity to dive even deeper into this juicy material...

BONUS CALL with Guest Teacher Annu Tara (Module 5: Tuesday 1 December 2020)
Our blueprint for intimacy and how we relate to our sexual self is learned and formed in our earliest years through our familial bonds and kinship structures. In our shadow liberation work, we begin the deep and delicate process of detangling and restructuring the threads of our misunderstanding, fear, shame, trauma, vulnerability, possibility, permission and the unresolved pains we carry in our bodies and hearts.
But frequently, the true root of these issues is to be found much further back in the past than our current life experience. The unresolved pains and epigenetic trauma of our way-back ancestors become the legacy (or curse) of intimacy that we automatically inherit at birth. These patterns are powerfully alive in the DNA of our cells, blood and bone, are often unseen to us and difficult to parse out because we have never known anything different.
In this bonus call, Annu invites your curiosity in discovering how we can engage the dead in a healthy way to initiate profound healing, liberation and wholeness - not just for our current-time selves and ancestral past but also for our future descendants.
Annu Tara is an animist and ancestral practitioner, ritualist and ceremonial guide on a quest to better understand the intersecting themes of belonging, place/land, body, ancestry and healing in the context of a contemporary world that is death-phobic, grief-illiterate, trauma-congested, spiritually and culturally amnesiac, and struggling to orientate itself in life-thriving ways.

BONUS CALL with Guest Teacher Sw. A. Rahasya (Module 7: Tuesday 26 January 2021)
Eroticism is a kind of dream. It is an imagining of what we think we want which is projected upon our experience. By reversing our usual tendency of repression, we become aware of our eroticisms. By experiencing our erotic imaginings, we discover the truths which they conceal. However much we want our sex and our love to be fully conscious and present, if we won't meet what's in the unconscious, our love and our awareness can only go so deep. In this Bonus Call, Rahasya, will guide an exploration of the cultural eroticism to power and control i.r.o. sex, power, punishment and reward. This is an experimental & experiential module in which you will be encouraged to lean against the cultural habit, embrace fantasies and desires, lift taboos and suppressions, process polarities. Deepening our capacity for bliss and developing presence in the body.
"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.”
BONUS CALL with Guest Teacher Karin Ritchie (Module 9: Tuesday 9 March 2021)
Karin Ritchie is a Trauma Healing Practitioner - a subtle healing modality that focuses on the science of the nervous system and the unlocking and releasing of trauma held in the body, mind and spirit. On this bonus call, she will share with us some of her understanding and experience of working with Somatic Experiencing. Karin also facilitates a 7-day retreat in collaboration with the Shakti Shiva Academy, "Freedom & The Nervous System" - in which we work very finely with unraveling trauma from the body in a gentle way that can be integrated and embodied.

Claire was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school for many years. She grew up in a sexually repressed and confusing culture in the southern region of the United States. Abstinence until marriage was the expectation and "sex makes you feel guilty" was the attitude. Though at the time she felt enveloped by hypocrisy and confusion, this set of conservative circumstances proved to be blessing by later inspiring her to become a student of human sexuality and gender studies.
Bringing over 15 year’s worth of experience with sexual and somatic education alongside shamanic and Tantric training, Claire works as a coach, counselor, mentor, confidant and teacher of sexuality and spirituality. She has formal training in life coaching from San Francisco State University plus somatic psychotherapy through the Hakomi Institute of California, and is a certified Soul Coach trained by internationally renowned teacher Denise Linn. She is also a certified sex educator through the San Francisco Sex Information initiative, a long time student and mentee of the late Shakti Malan, a Reiki Master, a CMT, and a pagan Priestess-in-training.

Rhianne van der Linde
Participating in the first 18-month Online Totality Therapy Training offered by Shakti in 2012 was a profoundly transformative period in my life. This ‘work’ opened me up to the vastness of Being by confronting me with every belief I've ever held about myself, about the ‘other’ and about the world I live in. My reality, consensual reality… what is the Truth of Reality?
These questions turned me inside, outside, upside down…presenting a rare opportunity to investigate who I really am beyond right and wrong, beyond gender stereotypes and ancestral expectations. During the last 12 years or so, I've been exploring my sexuality and its expression outside of the usual definition of ‘relationship’. What does that look like for me? What is my desire,? Where is my attraction? And, so here I am, following my Bliss, taking responsibility for everything that arises in the field of my experience and deeply knowing that it is the only way to live a truly human life...
Truth as emptiness and Truth as embodiment - as consciousness expressing in form, in beautiful bodies of love...it is this language of the heart, this feminine language of embodiment & feeling that Rhianne is most interested in learning and sharing.

WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS OF SHAKTI'S TRAINING ARE SAYING
“A pioneer in the field of Human consciousness and awakening – Shakti marries her deep knowledge of Anthropology and Human Sexuality towards insights and teachings into the human condition which are forward thinking innovative and inspiring. Shakti’s teachings have allowed me to come home to a place I always knew existed but lacked the capacity to reach on my own. A Re–Pairing on the deepest level. The teachings and subtle body work practices have set in motion the expanding of a felt sense reality for me – towards a rich and tapestried life of intimacy and love making that I could not have imagined before.”
Totality Therapy Practitioner & Dentist, Cape Town
“This course created a safe and sacred space for me to know myself more deeply. Within the mystery and magic of the container that Shakti set, I had insights that profoundly impacted my soul journey…Through the exercises and Shakti's expert facilitation, I was able to re-integrate and love the disowned parts of myself, which made me more whole and more truly who I am.”
Founder of Wisdom Women, San Francisco, USA
“Shakti Malan and her body of work single handedly re-shaped my personal and professional lives in untold ways. From the moment I met her in 2010 until her passing in 2017, I felt so blessed to be close with her, learn from her, absorb thoroughly the teachings coming through her, and be part of her learning community. She stood for many things that are important to me (understanding the inner masculine and feminine essences, bringing them into loving relationship, exploring the shadow in sexuality, living boldly and fiercely in service to life's higher wisdoms, supporting the healing of sexuality and the body on the planet, etc). Even though she is no longer in a body, I still feel Shakti's impact and continued influence in my life every day.
I'm deeply honored to be an active part of continuing the legacy of her work on the planet.”
Coach, counselor & confidant, San Francisco, USA
“This Sexual Shadow Integration Work piece, more than any other, has been pivotal in the process of becoming the truest expression of Being. Through immersing totally in this ‘work’, I have learned and come to know the truth that reality is not solid and our potential to create the realities that we really, really want to live is firmly in our hands. The power and impact of this course on my living, loving life has been enormous - it has changed everything - in that there is no longer an option here not to take responsibility for all of it. In the recognition that I am also that which I refuse to bow down to, there is great surrender - a coming to rest in the...
Bliss that is the balance that happens when we fully embrace both our shadow and our light and come to rest In love”
Rhianne van der Linde
Collaborator & co-creator of intimate online and retreat spaces, Cape Town, South Africa
“Loving your deep space grounded meditations you take us on in the course...I can really feel the space and peace you have created in your inner being and it's so powerful to experience your embodiment.”
Kali van der Merwe
Photographer, Baardskeedersbos, South Africa
“This course takes you out of your comfort zone and shines a light into the dark areas of your life that you never even knew existed. It challenged my thinking and expanded my wisdom and knowledge about who I am and what’s holding me back. I feel freedom now in my thoughts and about my relationship with myself and others.”
Past Participant, NSW, Australia
“This course allowed me to explore my sexual desire, encounter cultural taboo’s, integrate trauma and transcend duality. The journey opened my eyes to the beauty of life.”
Past Participant, Hong Kong
"This course allowed me to better understand myself in terms of my sexual orientation. We all have areas that we fail to see within, wether in our sexuality or in other aspects of self and this course provided an objective mirror which enabled me to dive deeply into myself and move through those some of those ‘blind spots’"
Holistic Health Practitioner and Past Participant, Durban, South Africa
"Amazing journey into the depths of the unconscious, a beautiful way to become more of who we truly are, integrating shadows and dancing with Eros."
Past Particpant, Business and Medicine Woman, Poland
“When I began this course I didn't know what to expect, I was a little afraid of what the content might entail me to do. I found the course is delivered in such a way that you could dip your toes in gently or dive deep. The facilitators all have a wealth of knowledge & experience & offer wonderful support. I particularly found the zoom calls very informative, especially when I was struggling with a concept. Doing this course definitely enriched my life & opened my awareness regarding my own sexuality.”
Past Participant, NSW, Australia
“I enjoyed how deep this course went. I continue to revisit the course materials since participating in 2018 and each time, I integrate a new layer of my shadow. I was able to gain incredible awareness in my eroticism on a deeper, darker level, which helped me to own certain parts of my sexuality that I had been denying myself permission to own and enjoy previously. I definitely recommend this program - it changed my life and I’ve continued soaking up the lessons and taking them deeper or into newer territory each time.”
Erotic Coach and Past Participant
"This course is built upon deep understanding of sexuality and I feel that it is True Tantric course. The facilitators are gifted, trusworthy professionals that have in actuality done thorough work within themselves related to sexuality. The atmosphere in the course was very supportive and open. You can't go wrong taking this course! It's a true jewel in the tantric/spiritual marketplace because of the profound material Shakti Malan originally created and put together and the way that the very experienced facilitators are guiding this course in a sensitive, compassionate way.”
Physiotherapist and Past Participant, Finland
“Sexual Shadow Work is powerful stuff to be doing. I found myself together with a group of seekers on an incredible journey that was so well held by facilitators with deep personal experience. It was an honour to participate in and witness all the things we explored on our journey together. The modules of this 9 month course took us into deep places, and explored aspects that are vital to the rapid shift in consciouness that we need right now on the earth. I was able to access and share my personal experience around sex and relationships that I have never shared with anyone. And that is big right there…and it’s all OK, especially when you realise that patterns and fantasies are common, held by men and women alike. There are so many layers to this Sexual Shadow Work and so many possible benefits - exploring polarity, dropping judgement and finding freedom of expression stand out for me. I would encourage anyone with an interest in working in an intimate well held group to dive in and sign up. Do not hesitate at all if this work is calling you…”
Past Participant, Brighton, UK
"My experience of participating in Shakti Shiva Academy's offerings has been a massive liberation of hidden shame. Because through the exploration of my subconscious, through the sharings, through the hearing of other women and men's voices and how they experience and share, I learned how to share vulnerably myself. I was amazed just how much the sharing was itself a liberating act from the shame of these dark bits hidden within."
Acupuncturist and Past Participant, Toronto, Canada
"This course is a deep dive into the intimacy you don’t dare to touch, that part of you whispering behind your ear every time you get aroused. You will encounter every desire, every taboo, every forbidden dream buried under the sheets of your youth, unchaining the wild beast of pleasure within. You will finally see yourself for who you are - you will drop the story, the fear, the shame - you will fall in love with every part of your dark side, learning to feel it, love it, pleasure it.”
Paula González Collado
Actress and Past Participant, Santiago, Chile
“SSIW was such an eye opening experience, offering me the safest of spaces to deeply contemplate and deconstruct, especially the taboo. I learned so much about myself, resulting in a deeper sense of unapologetic freedom. I also learned timeless and priceless tools that I will carry forth sharing in my own work as a facilitator.”
Past Participant, Performance Artist, Mentor & Teacher, Ubud, Bali
“The high quality material of this course has been carefully and thoughtfully put together, reflecting the deep understanding and inner experience of the course creator and facilitators. It also, covers topics that most others courses shy away from. The course was very professionally organised and I felt very safe in the container that was provided (particularly for the online live gatherings and the private FB group). The materials were clear and easy to understand and there is space to go really deep with your own reflection and inner work. I also really liked was how the course allowed me to go at my own pace and only as deep as I was ready to go.”
Past Participant and Founder of Feminine Revered, Lusaka, Zambia
“When I discovered Shakti Malan, I felt an immediate YES. I'd been involved in the study of sacred sexuality, Taoism, and Tantra for over 15 years. I was certain that I'd finally found a teacher that could take me deeper into my work—both personally and professionally. Unfortunately, she passed a few months later. The world lost an extraordinary spiritual teacher and wise woman. Gratefully Shakti passed her work on to her team—a handful of sincere practitioners and gifted teachers who embody this work entirely. I'm gearing up for round #2 of the Sexual Shadow Integration Work. This 9-month course is hands down some of the most potent and profound healing processes around sexuality I've ever encountered. Shakti's work lives on; and the team that continues her work is impressive. The Sexual Shadow, 9 Month Course, should be a prerequisite for all professionals in sexuality, and anyone interested in their transformation and sexual healing.”
