and reverence touch of the Divine Feminine. Being in the bhav inhabits
the human body as a sacred vessel, enthralling curio paths to
self-love. Workshops, practices, restorative sessions at Shakti

soul-centered yoga, caverns of souls unleashing passion for the
eclectic similes of Shakti. Each appearing artist or teacher offered
sensational journeys into their intimate world of stories. To capture
a few, Tantra Workshop leader Dawn Cartwright advocates “we are the
ecstasy we’ve been longing for all our lives.” AIReal Yoga founder,
Carmen Curtis honored “excellent way to grow yoga practice while
feeling safe.” This modality of yoga knows no bounds, surrendering
body in movements and trusting support of the flow. Both these leaders
as well as all the Shakti artists reminded patrons Divine Feminine

meditation, hot-soaking, sound baths, tantra and/or ecstatic sunset

ultimate inspirations, fresh voices, and new lenses to carry one
