Shaktipat Ceremony with Tantric Healing Workshop
June 3 @ 13:30 - 17:00
▽ SHAKTIPAT ▽
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, workshop or sound experience.
▽ TANTRIC HEALING WORKSHOP BY KARLIJN KOUWENHOVEN (KABIRA)
This workshop will give your system a deep cleansing, opening and clearing for the Kundalini energy to flow easily. Karlijn will take you through some easy, yet powerful healing modalities relying on intuition, gentle touch and energetic awareness. A solid preparation for the Shaktipat Ritual.
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.
▽ SIDDHA LINEAGE
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.
