  • “In my perspective, you carry dear Shakti the Feminine divine Presence, I see you as the keeper of the ancient knowledge of sexuality coming from Isis……it is not because of your personal experience and learning, which helped you to remember,  it is because you embody that sacred wisdom.  I felt the coherence between your teachings and yourself, which is of primordial importance for me.  Your intuition is sharp, I love your outspokenness and your ability to transmit ‘thick’ subjects on an ironic way, I appreciate so much the way in which you are able to perceive the person behind her personality, the truth of what is hiding inside ( the unconscious ) behind the multiple masks of th ego.  In your techings I felt you Appropriate, Caring and Present as a whole.  You are transparent, simple and profound at the same time.  I felt your heart and your passion for Life with a big L during the first day of your workshop, and most of all I felt your JOY through your laugh…..the child joy inside talking to the child joy of every women around you…..”

    Chiara Vitali, healer, architect, mom, Paris
  • “Shakti is a unique teacher & therapist, deeply gifted & accomplished, an inspired and inspiring fellow human traveler. She embodies the flow, love & compassion of the deep feminine while being fully conscious & strong in her masculine. This is such a rare combination in our unbalanced world… She brings the change the new Earth needs. She will guide you, invite you in a space where you can trust & let go. She will hold you, she will challenge you, she will let you taste unconditional love.

    I am so grateful to her for my own blossoming into the fullness of who I can be. The journey is ongoing, her support is ever present. If like me you believe and feel there is more to your life than what surrounds you, and you are willing to step into the unknown, look no further, she is the one you’ve been looking for.”

    Kalyani – Dakini, teacher and intimacy confidante, England
  • “A pioneer in the field of Human consciousness and awakening – Shakti marries her deep knowledge of Anthropology and Human Sexuality towards insights and teachings into the human condition which are forward thinking innovative and inspiring.  There are few instances in life when a teacher of high integrity reliability and genuine concern for the advancement of Human evolution appears, and enables a path which becomes life altering and self-sustaining for so many.  Such has been my experience of Shakti Malan.”


    Paul Abro, dental specialist, Totality Therapy practitioner, musician and artist, Cape Town
  • “Shakti taught me that, true Masculine strength also means the courage to surrender to love, to embrace, to tenderness, to the feminine, to the soft whispers of Mother Earth and all her wisdom and to relax into the heart.  That, the deepest and most loving relationship I will ever have is the one with myself….and once I have realize that, it is a Truth that is worn like a radiant silken mantle.. Only as I outgrow my fear can I handle a woman’s tremendous love-energy without running. And only such of me is worthy of my devotional offering in a committed intimacy….and with that I can be able to meet a Woman fully and complete.”


    Thabang Titotti, tour operator and Tantric practitioner, Cape Town
  • “Shakti showed me what it means to give myself back to myself… again and again and again.  I feel that there is more of me in me and also more spaciousness for the mystery of life to live through me. Though my relinquishing  of control has been a challenge, I see more and more, that when I do I taste a freedom that is sublime and unlimited, I come home to myself, my heart opens more, I remember at the deepest level, who I really am.”

    Giulia L., Pharma Consultant, South Africa
  • “Shakti Malan is the real deal modern-day embodiment of the timeless Shakti-Shiva. Working with Shakti has profoundly deepened my relationship with the inner Beloved–allowing me to open wider and wider still–receiving and relaxing, whilst burning in the fires of Love, Truth, and Beauty. Her teachings are NOT for the faint-hearted. You will be called out to excavate all the stuff you ignore and cling to, then face them one by one, lovingly. In doing so you will reveal that effulgent lightness of Being.”

    Marja West, Founder of
  • “Since discovering Shakti and completing her facilitator’s training in Sexual Awakening for Women, my life, love and relationships have been deeply enriched and enlivened.  It has not always been a light or easy journey – the process of opening into awareness and true feminine essence has involved periods of pain, change and difficult transition.  And yet, as I continue to grow and learn on this path, I am now a more whole, authentic, loving, radiant, empowered woman than I have ever been, and I see and feel this change in me touching and blessing all those I come into contact with – from my children, clients and friends, to my beautiful Beloved.”

    Beverley, Tantra teacher and Sexual Awakening for Women facilitator, England
  • “Working with Shakti Malan has been one of the most powerful experiences in my life – for me as a  woman. It radically facilitated my understanding of the experience of being  woman – Spark of the Divine having a human experience. In my case the Divine Intelligence chose to experience life as a  woman, ME. Once this is understood in the “body of love” – the body of woman, as a deeper feeling of Truth – then a whole new life experience begins, an Ecstatic One. Shakti’s gift to me has been priceless.”

    Valentina, Italian dance choreographer, show director and artist based in Cape Town
  • “This is life changing work. If you want to know who you REALLY are on a deep heart level then this is for you. It was a beautiful journey of shedding old armour and layers to reveal exquisite vulnerability and tenderness in a safe and honoring atmosphere of wonderful women. I experienced profound transformation that shifted old patterns and ideas about who I thought I was, and it brought me to a deep presence and knowing about my true self and taught me how to operate from my heart more than my head. Shakti is an amazing facilitator and a shining inspiration full of love and empathy for the human condition, she planted some treasure in me that I will carry for life and I am so deeply grateful to her for that.”

    Sally, London fashion buyer turned African farmer and mom
  • “Shakti Malan is the embodiment of a great teacher and healer. She utilizes her powerful presence, wisdom, and physical self to enact that which the healee needs to encounter in order to meet and triumph through their conditioning, deprivation, and traumatic imprinting. She brings together in depth knowledge of trauma, the nervous system, somatic processes and a passionate commitment to the evolution of consciousness in her work. I was amazed with her tremendous range of being, from the most soft tender loving nurturer to the most fierce animalistic side. In all the years of my practice and trainings with great teachers in the trauma therapy and somatic psychology field I have not encounter the special qualities I witnessed with Shakti.”

    Serena, Trauma Psychologist, Canada

Tingling up the Central Channel

Tingling up the Central Channel Viijnana Bhairava Tantra 44th Sutra In some moment when The senses rest from flowing outward, Notice the current of sensing As it starts flowing upward. Be alert to sensations, Tinier than that of an ant walking on the skin, Subtly tickling, as the undulating energy leisurely Tingles up the central…


Run Towards Your Fear

In the last couple of months, through closely observing myself, I have come to see how much of my life – reflecting human life – is controlled by unacknowledged fear. I have come to believe that a very large percentage of our actions are motivated by this fear. The occasion that initiated this insight for me was one that most people would regard as unmistakably fear-inducing. I had received news that cancer had increased in my bones and I had been sent to get a CT scan to check whether the cancer had spread to my organs. In the few days before I got the CT scan results, my inner life became dominated with intense survival fear: What if the scans showed that my body was riddled with cancer? Have I come to the end of my life?


Celebrating Post-Patriarchal, Post-Feminist and Post-Goddess Woman

The appearance of Woman’s Day has me reflecting,

Post-Patriarchal Woman

At this moment in history, we find ourselves as a species steadily leaving the familiar harbor of Patriarchy which we all – men and women alike – created through our agreement. However much we may want to put Patriarchy in the Bad Box, the last 5 000 years of patriarchal paradigm has brought enormous evolutionary leaps to human consciousness. Simply looking at advances in science and internet technology makes this obvious. And yet, it is also clear that Patriarchy has served its purpose.


There are Mermaids in Africa

In popular media, mermaids are depicted as Barbie-like Disney characters that evoke in us a whimsical imagination of a certain quality of the feminine. I want to tell you today about the Mermaids of Africa – and invite your imagination to go to entirely new places.

Mermaids are well known in African culture – more than known, they are revered, and feared. In Southern Africa, they are called the Mondao. The Mondao is a water spirit in the shape of a snake that lives in water bodies. This shake has tremendous power, and she is said to be in charge of money and abundance. Years ago, I visited rural Zimbabwe where the villagers would not dare take any water from the local river before praying to the water spirit. In the tradition of African Shamanism, the Mondao is one of the non-familiar ancestral spirits that Sangomas (African shamans) may need to learn to work with. I was in a room once with a woman who had the calling to work with the Mondao but hadn’t been initiated into it. When the Mondao came and possessed her, her body was being flung around with a force so intense that it took four of us to hold her down.


I Give You My Time Beloved

Beloved. I wonder if you, like me, find that relating to time puts you instantly in a straight jacket. Deadlines, appointment times, schedules – relating to these can put me instantly in a more contracted state. I know this contracted state to be what Joe Dispenza calls The Habit of Being Myself. In other words, my relationship with time tends to get me identified with a familiar, habitual sense of myself.
