Transformational Recovery 

Once there was a girl whose heart had been locked up. Her voice had been taken and her spirit chained to a great stone at the bottom of the deepest ocean. She felt totally alone and powerless, trudging through the endless desert. One day, she came to an oasis and found there a circle of wise women, waiting for her. They washed her feet and held her while she cried and cried. Together they unlocked her heart, reclaimed her voice, and swam through the ancient waters to untether her soul…

  • yoga, dance and expressive movement

  • shamanic journeying

  • meditation

The recovery house in Midtown, Sacramento is home to our Live-in Apprentices, and a second home to our Live-out Apprentices who enjoy the same services and level of care without living on the property.

Program costs are:
Residential: $1,500 per month includes full room and board including organic, vegetarian meals, organic gardens, healing services, movement, educational courses, counseling, and therapeutic groups.

Non Residential: $600 per month includes all healing services, movement, educational courses, counseling, and therapeutic groups.

Seasonal Apprenticeship: $1800 per month. For women who are either not ready or not needing a long term program or who are older than 30, we offer a modified program that can be participated on a seasonal commitment. This is for women who come to live at the Recovery House for a season and fully participate in the Apprenticeship. This is ideal for times of transition, when there is a need for short term intensive healing, deep restoration and soul healing work.

Community Apprenticeship: Base package of $200 per month, additional services are available as needed. For women who wish to be part of this transformational community but for life commitment reasons cannot take on a full Apprenticeship.

Individual therapy sessions: $90 per session or $250 for a package of three.

Scholarships, sliding scales, and payment plans are available.


“This is what I carry in my heart with me today, deep love and gratitude for myself, my gifts, my presence, and all of life and humanity. I value myself and my presence. This value is something that is innate and emanates from within me. This is the biggest gift I have received from my transformation process.  

Before coming to Shakti, I had no self-confidence, self-worth, or internal value. I felt I placed all of my worth in other people’s opinions of me. I was disconnected and non-trusting of myself. I was a drug addict, I had an eating disorder and I isolated myself. I was unable to earn an income for myself and manage my life with all of my insecurities that invaded and infected my life like poison...

All of these issues were and are still intertwined. My story of transformation is proof of the healing power of this program. I have the skills to be able to build and sustain inner resilience and strength, and the ability to unwind and let go of all of the enmeshment and the damage that low self worth has had on my life.” - Shakti Rising Graduate
