Thomas Kwakernaat graduated on the double bass, in Jazz and Latin, specialized in ‘light music’. He further developed as a sound therapist, using authentic Tibetan and crystal bowls and Asian gongs. He accompanies mantra groups with guitar and vocals and plays percussion. Thomas studies the phenomenon of Sound and Frequency and gives lectures at the UVA and Conservatories.

“About 15 years ago the beautiful instrument the “Hang” came my way and I let this new musical love enter my heart. Touch my soul.
A world of possibilities within sound formation opened up for me.
I discovered my purpose on this instrument; to only produce sound.
I experienced it as a stream of resonance straight from my heart.

I invite you to surrender to the harmonic vibrations of the authentic Tibetan and Nepalese singing bowls, crystal bowls, the Symphonic Gong, PANart Handpan and various other world music instruments during a ‘Sound Concert’. Ancient instruments based on resonance are known for their healing effect on the body and mind.”

“Nada Brahma”: everything is vibration, everything is frequency (Sanskrit proverb).


Shaktipat (Sanskrit meaning: descent of grace) is one of the highest Tantric ceremonies. Through ritual and austerities we invite the universal life energy into our being. Awakening our potential of effortless ease, flow and bliss.
Shaktipat is an individual, passive meditation. You will receive blessings of water from the Ganga river, sacred Indian ash, Kumkum and touch of the third eye. Indian Vedic chants will support you to go deeper in your meditation and invocation.
A Shaktipat can be a deeply transformational experience.


Kundalini, also referred to a life force energy, is the essential energy of the deepest potential of our soul.
Kundalini can awaken through thorough practice such as yoga or breathwork, by spontaneous activation, by birth or through receiving Shaktipat from an ancient Tantric lineage.
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 crucial spiritual awakenings.


The Shaktipat ritual is performed according to Siddha tradition. One of the oldest Tantric lineages, mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita. 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 in the lineage in 2016 from Bud Barber. He was carefully chosen by Nityananda’s direct disciple Muktananda to give Shaktipats around the globe.
Kabira received initiation to give Shaktipat too in Nityananda’s Ashram in 2018. Ever since, she has performed over 40 Shaktipats across the globe, from Amsterdam and Berlin to Thailand and Melbourne.

“Ik ging er eigenlijk zonder verwachtingen in en vond het heel bijzonder!
Er gebeurde van alles en de energie is lekker blijven stromen in mijn lijf vandaag.”- M

“Hugely powerful Shaktipat.
I had a massive crying moment.
Cleansing but revealing.” – M

“I had extra spring in my step today while working,
wow something been touched to allow the flow.
Thanks for great night and every ones contribution to connect.” – Peter

“I woke up with a headache, but was able to shift that easily by breathing into the area that caused it. And by putting my hands there.
The energy in my hands was increased enormously yesterday.
Then I had a huge insight, and was able to feel myself more deeply.
Now I feel much softer and more relaxed.”- AK
