“This was my first year joining you at the gathering for women. To be honest, I was hesitant at first because I had not attended a twelve hour event with women before. I found myself with more and more energy as the day went on and wishing it wasn’t ending after the full day! This was a life changing experience and the food was delicious. Thank you again and again! I will be sure to see you next year!”

“Year after year I look forward to gathering with you and the women in the circle. Each year I have insights and aha moments that have changed my life. I’ve also made some amazing friends through the Stirring the Shakti gathering.”
Location: StarHouse is a magical and healing temple designed and built with the principles of Sacred Geometry at its core. Constructed in 1990, it is a 12-sided structure surrounded by 105 acres of open space, rolling hills and pine forest.
Aligned with the geometry of the Flower of Life and integrated with the map of the 7 chakra system, StarHouse resonates with this high vibrational energy, physically and spiritually. There are many sacred sites and treasures on the land including a walking labyrinth, standing stones, Mary’s Well, the Goddess and Council Groves and much more.
“The Stirring the Shakti retreat transformed me in so many ways. The most profound for me was leaning into a circle of women. I made so many friends and felt so seen. Thank you Shanti.”
“I learned so much about myself while gaining experience on how I can apply simple practices in my life to continue my journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“The ceremonies we shared at Stirring the Shakti felt so familiar and the women I met now are my sisters. I will never forget this retreat. It changed my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
2021 Stirring the Shakti at StarHouse Facilitators:
Shanti has been gathering women together in sacred circles of celebration for over 20 years. Her sacred Salt Ceremonies and Stirring the Shakti retreats and events inspire women to transform the mundane into magic, celebrate the simply sacred, empower true nature, and fuel the fire of purpose and passion.
She founded her Body Current® modality as a bridge between ancient wisdom and modern neuroscience. Much of Shanti’s inherent wisdom in regulating the nervous system was imprinted as a young child living through her own trauma. Her own healing has inspired the root of her unique approach in coaching women’s wellness and wholeness as well as training elite athletes and top business professionals.
She enjoys supporting elite athletes and everyday warriors to live a life of well-being, optimized performance and wild inspiration through simple practices of embodied self-realization. Shanti considers herself a “revealer” rather than a “healer”. She has enjoyed facilitating her Body Current protocols in a variety of 500HR Yoga Teacher Trainings and as faculty at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as the Neurosculpting Institute and most recently as the Development Director and Facilitator for the Sacred Arts Practitioner Certification at StarHouse.
