If so, you’ve been guided to the right place.
You have the opportunity to join a circle of Shakti Initiates who are working closely with Lisa Schrader — one of the most respected teachers on sacred sexuality of our day. And she is eager to help you discover the depths and miracles of your inner beauty in ways that will surprise, delight and amaze you.
Nine months is the time it takes to carry a baby to term. It can also be the time it takes to birth a new YOU — one that is blessed to embody the divine current of Shakti energy, so that it transforms you, your beloveds and the world as a whole.
You’ve likely already begun the process of opening up to the power and potential of your passionate life force — awakening the Divine Feminine from her slumber and animating your life with more succulent, expansive and potent energies.
It’s now time to go to the next level. One of glowing radiance. Of power. Delight. Joy. Healing. Abundance. Awakening.
The gateway is your Shakti.
As a woman, this Shakti force that moves through your body is your birthright. However, you were probably never taught how to open to the fullness of your power and experience the surrender and erotic delight that comes when your body becomes a living, breathing temple — and your life becomes a way to gift the world with love.
It takes a trusted guide to enter these realms and become initiated into the depths of the mysteries that lie within. Lisa Schrader is that powerful, wise mentor who will help you discover these feminine mysteries through the sacred portals of your womb, heart, soul and yoni. She is here to initiate you into a deeper, wiser, more whole YOU.
You see, every woman is an emissary of the Divine and a creatrix of new life. Several millennia of masculine domination is finally shifting, but so much damage has been done to the raw, untamed, beautiful depths within us — which are key to our divine expression.
Dear sisters, it’s finally time to SHINE with all of our magnificence. A new era is here, one in which the feminine is taking her rightful place in our lives and the world. It is time to summon our Shakti, and channel it into a new kind of empowered femininity — as important to an executive in the boardroom as it is to a lover in the bedroom.
However, to embody this new, integrated feminine presence, we must be willing to go into the dark corners of shame, fear and self-judgment that often constellate around our sensual selves.
To blossom, we need to explore the places where we abandon ourselves, where we fail to give ourselves permission to be all of who we are. We need to welcome the wisdom from our wounds, and also go beyond, to use them as alchemical fuel for the potential that’s waiting to be born.
To do this work of Shakti activation at the deepest level requires skilled, sensitive support and a relaxed expanse of time. And that is what we will create, together, during the nine months of birthing a fuller, more Shaktified and freer Self — one who KNOWS what real sisterhood looks like, FEELS exquisite pleasure in her body, ATTRACTS abundance and opportunity, and DELIGHTS in the dance of life and love.
A Shakti Initiate is a woman who knows how to step into her feminine power in a way that is authentic, non-manipulative and clear. She knows how to channel her life force in the service of her soul’s work. She knows the pleasure of living in sensual, orgasmic aliveness as her birthright — and she gives this gift of radiance to the world. And she knows how to amaze her lover, enjoy herself, stand in her truth, and receive divine nourishment in her very cells.

Module 1: The Heroine’s Journey (October 4)

In this class, we’ll cast our circle together and connect with feminine archetypes to guide us as we begin our exploration into the heart of Shakti.

Module 2: Our Female Body as a Gateway to the Divine (October 18)
In this session, we’ll dive into the creation story from the East about the “big bang” erotic origin of life itself through the union of Shiva and Shakti, masculine and feminine.

In Module 5, you’ll:
- Clear shame and negative programming around pleasure

Module 6: Our Beautiful Breasts (December 20)

Next, we drop more deeply into the body, entering the sacred domain of our womb space and center of our creative power. Key to awakening our Shakti is a reclaiming of our innate feminine rhythm, something we’ve lost touch with in modern life, dominated as it is by an unsustainable hyper-masculine model of speed and productivity.
