Some Background on Shiva and Shakti

yin and yang

Shiva and Shakti represent the ‘divine masculine’ and ‘divine feminine’ as cosmic energies that are present in our internal worlds in both men and women.  They are the manifestations of divine consciousness where the ‘whole’  is made up of two opposed but complementary forces. Like yin and yang, they represent the duality behind all energies in the universe.

We live in a time of great gender polarisation.  The concept of Shiva and Shakti are useful as they can take us beyond the polarities of gender and the limited and oftentimes skewed cultural definitions of masculine and feminine. As the guiding deities of yoga, Shiva and Shakti gift us the power of transformation and liberation. They offer us a path to union for the individual yogini/yogi and the path of relationship.

Only when Shiva and Shakti combine can action, movement and creation arise.  Being aware of,  awakening and embodying Shiva and Shakti in our yoga practice enables us to unite the dualities of our nature and become aware of the dance of the divine masculine and divine feminine within and between us.

When the god and the goddess come together in the individual and the collective psyche, we experience the inner sacred marriage, self-actualisation and the full integration of spirit and feminine heart, intellect and feeling, freedom and fullness.(Sally Kempton, Awakening Shakti, 2013)

About the Workshop

In this 3-hour workshop you will experience a range of practices to awaken and embody the divine masculine (Shiva) and feminine (Shakti) within.

We will explore the masculine and feminine in our lives using mythology and the archetypal wisdom of Shiva and Shakti, the god and goddess of yoga.  You will experience a range of embodiment practices: including pranayama, asana, evocative music and kirtan and guided meditations with the focus on balancing the masculine (Shiva) and feminine (Shakti) within our lives.

All of Jane’s workshops draws from her background in social psychology and corporate change management, to hold a safe and fun healing space.
