And right here, breathing in and out,
at the pulsating edge where the Whole becomes Woman,
and Woman become the Whole,

we enter Shakti Sadhana, the spiritual practice of the feminine.

It is a practice of embodied spirituality.



I see you walking in the soft peachiness of the afternoon light,
the land is hot and dry under your feet.

This is the little piece of earth that you call home,
you know this land intimately as a mother.

Your hips feel warm and tingling,
there is an inward smile radiating through them,
reaching me through the mirage of time.

Like a mirror He has arrived, your Beloved, yourself.
His Presence, His warmth, His unwavering vast love. 

You recognized in Him your own splendorous heart.
Magdalena, Mygdala, Miriam, Yogini Sister,
thank you for calling us into practice, into the circle, once again.
You once inhaled the scent of His skin, our Brother of Love,
we know you can lead us into the very depth of the love He embodied.
We are ready, take us all the way.



Our guide in this sadhana is Mary Magdalene and the multifaceted gifts she is bringing to us
as the Beloved, the female archetype, the flesh and blood woman,
the spiritual teacher in her own right, and as the companion of the Prince of Love.

We will draw inspiration from the text called The Gospel of The Beloved Companion,
describes a profound transmission between Magdalene and Jesus, or Jeshua as he is called here.

In the gospel, Jeshua shows Mary Magdalene a vision.
It is a map of awakening consciousness in the form of the The Tree of Life Within.
He shows her 8 gates and the challenges she must go through in order to
pass through the gates to awaken and embody a more expansive consciousness.
In our Sadhana Immersion, we will travel in the inner realms
following the map that he shows her.

The teachings will be delivered in e-mails and audio recordings,
you can participate from your own home, start anytime.


What is Shakti Sadhana?

Sadhana means spiritual practice
Shakti is a name for the feminine creative life force of the universe

Shakti Sadhana is to live awake to She who breathes you through it all.
It is to consciously engage with both your inner and outer life,
your darkness and your light, seeing them essentially as
an unfathomable wholeness you are made of.

Shakti Sadhana is not a seclusive spiritual practice,
it is a path that permeates every aspect of our lives, melting the harsh walls of dualism.

The Yogini circle
 is a circle of conscious women coming together with a shared intention
of embodied awakening, which creates a garland of grace weaving through the world.


What will I learn in a 21 Day Sadhana?

The effect of the feminine embodiment practices can only be known
through direct experience, it can never fully be described in words,
but here are some pointers:

The practices direct you

:: towards a radical wholeness.

:: towards your deepest commitment, you become a bride of truth.

:: towards a relaxed power.

:: towards a reverence for the pulse of life in your body and in all beings.

:: to a deep place of home which never leaves you no matter how turbulent life shows up.

The practices become your allies in your longing to live as
an embodied instrument of awakening in the world.
For real.



Being invited into the sacred circle where
hundreds of awakening women held a seat for me was deeply moving.
I was welcomed with open arms, and drank from the elixir of sisterhood’s love and beauty.
This connection infused my practice of exquisite self care with grace and inspiration.
Chameli is a vibrant flower with a sweet aroma that fills me with happiness…
her voice, wisdom, presence is pure nectar.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart
for this fantastic Sadhana immersion.
I love the depth, the clarity and the simplicity in all the practices.
Sometimes I read your daily mails at work and soft tears are flowing.
I am grateful beyond words.

Anita Wiger, Goddess Stylis



These weeks of the online Goddess Sadhana
have been a sweet returning home for me!

I was warmly welcomed in the timeless circle of yoginis-
and I was introduced into the deep knowledge of being love-
it is stored in every single cell of my body now.
Wherever I am, whenever I long for it,
I can reconnect to this global circle of dedicated women.

Thank you, Chameli, for the beauty and the sacredness
you bring into my life and our lives! I bow to you all.
Uli Feichtinger,


How does it work?

The day after you pay, your Sadhana will begin.
Once a day you will receive a short e-mail with a new practice, or a poem, that will inspire you and keep you on track. Plus 3 Audio recordings of Chameli speaking on the myth and meaning of the Goddess (you can listen on the web or download MP3).


Will I have the time to do sadhana in the midst of a busy life?

You participate as much as possible for you. To do some practice is better than no practice,
and many of the practices are done in the midst of your life as it is for you.
Once you enter the Sadhana, you enter a mandala of Shakti, of transformation. The practices
and teachings will, independent of how much you “do”, unfold in unexpected ways.


Who is it for?

You will go deep. You will practice daily.
You will explore the wild realm of the Yogini within.
If you feel called, a sense of YES inside…
then claim your seat in the circle.

And no, you don’t need to have any previous experience with these teachings.
Our focus in the feminine embodiment practice is on direct experience,
YOUR experience is the authority. Always.


It has been amazing to feel at home
and participate in a course of such depth and support.
The daily practices are truly inspiring, the talks from Chameli
powerful and directly speaking to me.  I bow to you all… and I want more!
Devika Fossen, Massage Therapist,



This precious month of intensive practice has changed me. I experienced every action,
movement, meeting, breath, meal, thought, interaction….. as a practice. What a relief,
what a bliss! All of me, my being and doing became a practice in total devotion to the Goddess.
I am one with the practice. I embodied the practice. It just is, I am no longer separated from it.
The teleclasses and the massive loving and beautiful supportive energy from Chameli
and all of the divine sisterhood has made a tremendous difference
Catarina Olvenmark, Business Consultant and Coach


BarbaraThe 21 day Sadhana immersion was a dream come true for me.
To feel held as I learned to hold me. To feel listened to as I learned to listen to me.
And to be lead, by the voice and inspired words of Chameli,
as well as the shared writings of my wise sisters,
as I learn to lead myself ~ from within.

I have been softly kissed by the Goddess. She is real and presides in this circle.
I am home again.
Barbara Heile, Artist,
