Bite the Apple: San Diego, CA


  • Sunshine House, Shakti Campus (Directions to be shared after registration) (map)

“the apple was the fruit of memory, the medicine of recall and the aphrodisiac of original connection.  Eve ate the apple to regain her original powers...”
- Eve Ensler, retelling the story of Adam and Eve

Shakti Rising’s quintessential experience, this 2 day workshop is REQUIRED for all volunteers and staff in our organism & ecosystem. 

Akin to orienteering, this orientation to our approach ~ the Shakti way, sometimes referred to as “the model” (yawn!) ~ is essential to participation in our living lab of applied feminine practices & processes.

Bite equips YOU to lead powerfully from any seat, while finding the alchemy of where service provokes transformation:  leadership is the ultimate crucible. Our philosophy, heretical as it is: we are each leaders & need to be, at the very least of our own lives; definitely in our collective foray to an uncertain future.

In preparation, we invite you to:
- Be comfortable in all ways, prepared for movement & outside time
- Bring potluck food for lunches, snacks, water, favorite pens to doodle
- Come with wild curiosity, open heart & mind and desire.

The journey begins with awakening ~ we invite you to Bite the Apple & explore:
- Shakti’s Wheel of the Year ~ seasons & moon cycles
- Our Compass ~ “Guiding Star”
- 9 Gates of Awakening & the work of soul recovery
-The Spice Trade ~ food, medicine, and old ways made new
- Resource Rich communities & perspective for living
