Shaktipat Ceremony with Sound Bath by Joël van der Putten

4th May 2023 @ 19:00 - 22:30


Curious about (traditional) Tantra?

The power of mystical ceremonies?

Revitalizing your own energy body?

Around the full moon we enter an ancient, Tantric meditation: Shaktipat.

The ceremony can be a mystical journey with insights, release and an expanded energetical state.

We combine this meditative ritual with a live concert or sound experience.



Joël is a musician and sound therapist known for his powerful and authentic style. Music infused with a deep primal energy. His voice and instruments such as the gong, guitar and singing bowls bring a unique sound that takes the listener on a journey full of emotion and experience.

With his passion for sound and music, Joël knows how to create an unforgettable experience for us. From a trance like state Joël will guide us into a special sound bath in which he will share his skills and his love for music and sound. This concert promises to be a unique experience in which the listener is immersed in the deep primal energy that characterizes Joël.



Shaktipat is a traditional, mystical, Tantric ceremony. In Sanskrit, Shaktipat literally means descent of grace. Through ritual and intent we invite awareness of life energy (Kundalini) into our bodies. Resulting in a more flow, bliss and ease.

Shaktipat is a solo meditation, supported by collective energy. You will be ‘touched’ by water of the Ganga river, sacred ash, Kumkum and a third eye blessing of the Siddha lineage. Indian Vedic chants will support you into deeper meditation and prayer.

A Shaktipat can be a deeply transformational experience.



Kundalini, also referred to as life force, is the energy of your soul’s potential, rooted at the base of your spine.
Kundalini can awaken through practice (yoga, breathwork etc.), psychedelic stimulation (plant medicine etc.), spontaneous activation (birth), or through energetical transmission (Shaktipat).
We consider Shaktipat a safe way of awakening, as the lineage will ensure a smooth transition of your self-realization journey.

An awakened Kundalini can bring about massive life-transforming experiences and spiritual awakenings.



The Shaktipat ritual is performed according to Siddha tradition (5000 years old). Its primary objective was the direct, effortless awakening of the Kundalini. Through ritual and prayer we invoke the guidance of Bhagavan Nityananda, a meditator residing in the mountains of Maharastra, India.

Kabira has received initiation through Bud Barber in Melbourne in 2016, and has been giving Shaktipat across several continents ever since.
