Shakti: (Devanagari: शक्ति, IAST: Śakti; .lit “power, ability, strength, might, effort, energy, capability”), is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism and Shaktism.
Shakti is the concept or personification of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as “The Great Divine Mother” in Hinduism.
Retreat: The meaning of a spiritual retreat can be different for different religious communities. Spiritual retreats are an integral part of many Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Sufi (Islamic) communities.
In Hinduism and Buddhism, meditative retreats are seen by some as an intimate way of deepening powers of concentration and insight.
Although Shakti is known as the Divine Mother or Divine Feminine, Shakti Retreats aims to provide retreats for ALL to honor the Divine within themselves, other beings, and the earth. Through ancient rituals, movement practices, therapeutic touch, wisdom, conscious community, culture, and exploring, we can come together to discover the true meaning of yoga – UNITY. It is our duty to come into wholeness within ourselves, and to destroy the concept of separation between ourselves and others, ourselves and the earth, ourselves and spirit. A Shakti Retreat is an opportunity to awaken your full potential by getting out of your comfort zone, out of your head, and into your heart. You will be given the tools to not only experience radiant aliveness during the retreat but carry it into your life. A Shakti Retreat is transformational, healing, and magical.
Shakti Retreats is dedicated to providing education and awareness about the land and culture where its retreats are hosted. The centers we choose to host our retreats are carefully selected for their eco-commitment. The Divine Mother must be honored, respected, and healed. We heal ourselves and heal the world.
