The Shakti Circle is a gathering of women in a sacred space for nourishing the feminine spirit.
***Shakti Circle is currently on summer break! Please reach out to register your interest for 2018 circles. Thank you***
Come and reclaim the power of being woman and to enter into the temple where your feminine essence is nurtured, and you are held in the support of a circle of sisters who share your desire to relax into and nurture your feminine essence. This is a space for you to show up and be yourself fully, to hold and be held, to listen and be heard – free of judgement, in the spirit of love and sisterhood.
This will unfold inside the Devi Mandir or sometimes around the fire on most new moons (or thereabouts) – the goddess temple at the Upper Brookfield Yoga shala. This is a potent womb-like space which can comfortably fit 8 women, so please book in early to ensure your seat.
The circle will include ritual, guided meditation, gentle movement and embodiment practices, and sharing. Each circle will take a different theme or focus.
This is a private residence – address will be provided to those who book in. The Upper Brookfield Yoga Shala is a sanctuary in the wilderness, nestled in a luscious valley amongst the trees. A true retreat experience yet only 10 minutes from Kenmore and 30 minutes from central Brisbane.
A warm bowl of ayurvedic kitcharee will be served at the end of the gathering.
I created the Shakti circle to give women the opportunity to:
▽ Gather in sacred space with like-hearted sisters, celebrating the richness of being women
▽ Take time for deep inner listening and to be guided in simple practices that allow us to access our inner knowing through our bodies and our feelings
▽ Mark the new moon – naturally a time for introspection – and to honour our natural connectedness as women to the moon and all the cycles of nature
▽ Sensitise and access our body wisdom and to learn to feel and trust our intuition
▽ Feel and embody Shakti – divine feminine energy – as she manifests uniquely for each woman
▽ Enter a sacred space which includes ritual – sparking an ancient remembrance of how women throughout time and place have gathered and healed together
▽ Cultivate an attitude of reverence for the divine feminine as she lives in us and in each woman – and in all of life!
▽ Reunite with the goddess within
▽ Show up authentically and to be seen, heard and held in that expression
▽ To practice and offer unconditional presence, support and acceptance in meeting other women in their authentic expression
▽ Experience the deep nourishment for the feminine spirit that this sacred circle offers!
What others have said about these circles:
“Jasmine’s Shakti circle has changed the way I view myself and other women. It has opened doors for me to discover and experience deeper layers of mySelf that I was unable to grasp by only practicing yoga asana and meditation. Upon entering the temple, I felt a wave of peacefulness wash over me and the vibrant Shakti energy was ready to be awakened. This feeling continued to flow through my body and into my life for days afterwards. Jasmine carefully weaves a beautiful evening full to the brim with ways we can connect with that deeper part of ourSelf. If you desire a deeper connection with your feminine energy and power, and also crave communion with other women who also feel the same way in a safe and nurturing environment, then this is for you!” – Hayley
Jasmine’s heart and her intention for her work is to see her sisters (and collectively the world) to rise up into their Sovereignty and Divine Essence. She is a woman who walks the talk and lives her life from a place of truth. Being in the presence of Jasmine is a fount of peace, sensuality and pure Shakti force. She is a force to be reckoned with. She knows and is known by the Goddess intimately and her boons are the boons of the Goddess. Her heart is big and wide and continuously expanding to meet her sisters in a place of pure love, acceptance and heartfelt recognition. It is with deep admiration and love that I can recommend all and any of her offerings. Jasmine is a Goddess and I am so blessed that our paths aligned. – Mae Perral
“Coming to the Shakti circle and entering the temple space that Jasmine so lovingly tends to is truly like being embraced by the warm, caring arms of a mother, really of Mother Earth herself… The space that Jasmine is holding is giving us the opportunity to be seen and heard, providing a sacred place for women to feel safe and supported and to surrender completely to what we feel without judgement, doubt, fear or comparison.
I first came to Jasmine’s circles at a time I felt so alone and was craving the sisterhood and deep connection that I had known in the past but thought I wouldn’t find again. They sat with me as I cried and shared my pain, and I with them, realising there really are no differences between us.
The art of coming to meet in circle as women is something so magical that has been missing from our lives, I bow down to women everywhere in gratitude that we are bringing this magic back with full power now, and it is really big magic. We are not only connecting to ourselves and each other but to a global rising of women who are taking back their power and using it as a force of love and healing, not only for our individual lives but truly for the entire planet. If your heart is longing for this you are not alone, give in to love and welcome your sisters into your life!”” – Helena Turner, Yoga teacher
“Totally full of love today 💓 thank you beautiful lady, for holding us all and for sharing too. There is so much power in what we can do together; I heard the echoes of our chants last night as I was called to meditate and lay with the night. Such a warm place we all created last night. Perfect 🌙💜” – Caelan Curwen – Yoga teacher
“The new-moon Shakti circles facilitated by Jasmine are absolutely gorgeous, rich, healing and nurturing experiences. Each time I have attended one, it has given me and my life a little reset, a breath of beautiful fresh air, clarity and peace that surrounds me for the following days and weeks. Jasmine is a brilliant facilitator. Such a unique, gentle, inspiring, intuitive, subtle, yet powerful woman. She supports and honours every woman in the circle, and expertly intuits and holds a beautiful, nurturing and transformative space.” – Ambah, Mental Health Nurse
“These beautiful gatherings of women are gentle and yet powerful. I experienced such a deep healing within myself; an awakening of sorts. Through the process certain truths were revealed which prompted me to make changes necessary to live in greater alignment with my truth. Thank you Jasmine for providing this sacred space! “ – Lynda
