The rise of the Nourished Woman is now. Join us as we awaken a power that is rising up all over the globe, the feminine consciousness. We will be rousing this empowerment like a sleeping serpent through chanting ancient technologies of the Yogini tradition, practising with Goddesses such as Durga, Lakshmi and Kali. We will be using Conscious Touch, primal movement and sound, EMBODIMENT, mudra, and the art of cultivating awareness to ignite this energy-- creating new pathways of Being in our bodies. When women come together this way we heal old wounds of competition and we awaken a potent field of healing and manifestation. Come open your being and practise, play, awaken, heal with us!


Welcome to our fourth incarnation of AWAKENING SHAKTI: our signature, 8 session immersion exploring Feminine Consciousness through Embodiment and Holistic Health. The time of the Nourished Woman is now! Discover depths within yourself awaiting to be explored and freed. This is the ultimate in self-care and community-care. Together we rise! 

We held our first class of the Chakra Healing Series, Root Energy on Nov 23, 2017 and it was a full bodied house! Excited to do it all over again as we move up the body exploring the rest of these potent energy centers through intuitive and guided movement, conscious touch and eye-gazing, chanting and mantra, and connecting with other powerful women. Awaken your senses and come back home to yourself. Awaken out of the trance of trauma, overwhelm, isolation and numbness in the body. This is the rise of the Nourished Woman, the time is now--collectively we grow stronger, wiser, deeper. Join us in the deep immersion in everyday feminine awakening.

What to Expect?

After introductions and sipping on some warming Indian chai, we will begin by exploring in a safe container with sisters, whatever joys and challenges we are facing currently with our bodies and health, through light discussion. This will be followed by an exploration of movement, sound, mantra, and visualization of our chosen Chakra. Conscious touch and eye gazing. Lastly, we will sample together a delicious dish for balancing of this energy center. I will lead a short cooking demo on this dish, which afterwards we will all have a chance to sample. It will be invigorating, awakening and rejuvenating, a secret treat!

All handouts, exercises, recipes will be provided. :)

What are the Benefits?

- Release of oxytocin hormone, the "love" drug, which has multiple healing effects on a womans' body, counteracting the damaging effects of the stress hormone cortisol. We are creating safe touch, eye contact, laughter and overall connection through Presence and softness with each woman. This has massive healing effects on our body's stress levels.

- Increased Abundance in your life-- for as we melt down our inner hardness, we allow the blocks to Universal Love to come melting down as well. That means abundance on all levels can begin to actually move freely through you! Be it the receiving of compliments, the new client, more clients, more sex, better sex! more hugs, more connection, deeper connection, and overall a more deeper, satisfying experience of life.

- Renewed connection to your body, feeling INTO your skin and matter. Being IN your body has a ripple effect on your relationships. Particularly in intimacy, you can show up stronger in your feminine power. You have more confidence.

- Increased Self- respect: when you become more sensitized to your inner needs are in touch with your innate Feminine Power you show yourself respect and walk with Nobility, others take suit.

- The ability to powerfully say YES, powerfully say NO. Again, when we respect ourselves and are in touch with our needs, we can feel safe to vocalize what it is we desire to the people in our lives-- without reactivity or shutting down.

- Openness to our Lives: our we IN our lives are do we feel outside circumstances ruling us? Meet each moment, moment to moment-- in this way we are creatively engaging with the play, the "leela" of Life, instead of being mere spectators. We gradually step out of victim mode be reteaching our nervous system a new vibrancy of being, a new Presence.

- Holistic Health: Deep food nourishment. Learn how to become your own Medicine, through attuning to your own Inner Presence, crafting healing foods, and relaxing in openness to the Moment. Learn how to balance and nourish with holistic nutrition the glands and organs associated with each chakra.

" I highly recommend doing work with Abneet if you interested in deepening your connection with yourself. She is in touch with her own feminine fire to a level that I now aspire to join. I feel hungry to be an embodied woman just be being in her presence. I felt it the first time I met her... I didn't realize how disconnected from my own fire I had become, until I saw how connected she was to hers--THAT is why we must shine brightly from our hearts, to remind the ones that are stuck to reach for their own flame and stoke it! Abneet is helping me fuel the fire again. And it is getting warm, on it's way to hot. Thank you "

" The Awakening Shakti series is a wonderful and beautiful series that helps women get in touch with their feminine energy, find their voice and strength, boost their confidence, and share space with other lovely women/sisters. This is the first time I've taken part in a spiritual course and I am really happy I had the opportunity to complete the series. After Awakening Shakti, I feel more confident in myself and I've discovered my voice again-- I'm not afraid to stand up for myself anymore. I feel more at peace and connected to my higher self. Abby is amazing at what she does and really knows how to create a warm, loving space for women to come together and feel safe to express herself, and take part in practises that allow them to grow and become stronger, more confident beings. I definitely recommend this series, or any series with Abby, to all women! "

“ For me, it is been such a gift to have the opportunity to talk about women’s process related to our sexuality, sensuality and how just speaking out my thoughts and experiences in a very healthy and protected environment could be a way to heal whatever is happening in our lives. Thank you Abneet for holding this space for us. It is a human right to connect with people who help us align with the cycle of life!
