Past She is Love Events:

Sacred Embodiment Temple

TEMPLE ACTIVATION September 21st (2019) 11am-2pm (limited to 10 women) Santa Barbara, Ca.


Join us for a very special gathering in a sacred circle of women: activating deep remembrances of Shakti through Classical Devadasi Temple Dance, taught by Daniela Riva; and wild transmissions of the Dakini through Intuitive Embodied Expression, guided by Dakina{•}Kalista.

What you will learn and experience:

  • Sacred Devadasi Temple Dance, taught by Daniela, is inspired by devotional and sensual poses, movements and gestures, maintaining all the beauty and precision of Indian classical dance, merged with the essence of the sensuality and power of the tantric rituals. Cultivating and embodying the sacred origin of Indian Dances, Daniela guides her students into an inner journey, animating their prayers through refined and ritualistic gestures and steps. These classes includes gentle, sensual and grounding steps, to awake even more subtle feminine energies of the body and spirit.

  • Intuitive Embodied Expression, guided by Dakina, is a creative and mysterious way for the feminine heart and body to deeply feel within and express her sacred wisdom transmissions. Embodiment art is a process of deep intimacy and presence with the organic, moving, creative, healing, and intelligent essence of true being. Each embodiment contains its own alchemy and soul poetry. The sacred feminine principle within us is experienced as aliveness within ourselves and all creation: radiant, wild, and multitudinous. Intuitive embodied movement connects us to this sacredness inside to be lived as a gift in all areas of life.

  • The exquisite jewels that only a circle of deep hearted women can offer. There is something so life affirming and special of women coming together to dance, be real, raw, wild, radiant in their connection.

The location is at a temple home surrounded by lush gardens: overlooking the ocean and mountains.
