The Shakti Dharma Academy Live


with Chameli Ardagh
& the Awakening Women Team

Date: January 26 – 30, 2018
Location: Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia

In this intensive, we will focus on your leadership, how you can crystallize your dharma—your unique gifts—and share it with the world in integrity and abundance. 

Shakti Dharma is the creative power of the universe, creating itself as you. In the Shakti Dharma Academy, you will be guided to your deepest commitment; you will be challenged to rise, to stand tall in the majestic light of YOU.

Through feminine spiritual practices and Goddess mythology; through dharma talks, inquiries and guided journeys; through activating the Shakti of body, mind and speech, you will explore, awaken, express and celebrate your Dharma—that unique thread of you in the greater tapestry of existencefocusing your time and energy into moving your projects and visions forward.

We will study and practice with the teachings from The Bhagavad Gita—an ancient text with timeless guidelines on how to live our dharma.

When you are growing into a bigger version of yourself, you WILL be challenged. Confusion, fear, unclarity, overwhelm, impatience and unworthiness are all tests of your commitment. Within your longing itself dances Shakti, the creative power that will navigate you through the tests.

There is a tremendous support available to you in the momentum that happens when a circle of women come together with a shared intention. Bring your real-life visions, dilemmas, longings and questions; this way, we can co-create a space that truly serves you exactly where you are at in your work.

As with all the Awakening Women offerings, the training will happen in a balance of theory and practice.

The Shakti Dharma Academy is for women who are already familiar with AWI practices, who have either participated in an online sadhana, Women’s Temple group, or live event.

AnnemiekThe Shakti Dharma immersion with Chameli was exactly what I needed. The sacred teachings about finding and living your Dharma gave me such deep nourishment, insights and inspiration. I have many signposts now to help me blossom further and further on my path. But what made the program truly remarkable was the inclusion of the really practical every day kind of issues we as participants were dealing with. For me this was about dealing with chronic illness. But also business teachings like using facebook for business and copy-writing and marketing from a sacred and effective point of view. Chameli is living her teachings in bringing the Sacred Feminine into every aspect of life and sharing her experience as a successful online entrepreneur. It is an amazing well to drink from.
