You've completed Dakini Level 1 training and now you're ready to take your training to the next level.
You know the powerful impact of this work and you want to be able to offer your clients transformation on a deeper level.
You're ready to dive into advanced training around sexual healing, somatic empowerment, and relationship dynamics. You want to learn about the practices and techniques used to take clients- men, women, and couples- on deeper healing journeys.
You want to take your client base from occasional patrons to people who are ready to step into the fire of transformation with you and commit to their most expansive, empowered lives.
A dakini is a manifestation of liberating energy in female form. Sometimes they are beautiful, and sometimes they are wrathful and powerful and decorated with skulls. Because they represent liberation, they are often depicted naked and dancing.
The dakini represents the ever-changing flow of energy with which the yogic practitioner must work in order to become realized. Ultimately, all women are seen as some kind of dakini manifestation.
In this 10 day retreat in Upstate New York, we will dive deeply into a transformational journey that will change the course of your magnificent life and powerful mission on the planet.
You will learn psychological, spiritual, and somatic modalities; coaching skills; how to create safe and loving business platforms; marketing techniques; trauma release and shamanic healing practices. This well rounded program is meant to set you up for success in your professional life.
Here is what you will receive when you join us:
"I am so thankful that I gave my sacred yes to this training! Attending it has enhanced my personal life as well as my professional life. I feel so clear and empowered in who I am as a sensual, sexual woman offering this work to my clients with greater clarity and confidence... I felt inspired, safe and turned on the whole time ;)"

"This retreat is an experiential, hands-on, and heart-opening gateway into learning to heal, and meet our own needs, in healthy, beautiful, intimate ways. It is a powerful, self-empowering medicine for the soul, to be acknowledged and honored.
If you desire to truly honor the divine sacred feminine and masculine, and learn to cultivate a healthy and new way of relating with the men and women in your life, I highly recommend this pathway of the Dakini. You will literally start from the inside out and learn to liberate yourself, and love so intimately and deeply, starting with gifting yourself this sacred space, time, and medicine of embodying your Dakini."
