The Shiva Sequences
8 Month Guided Program &
Teacher Training Program
The Shiva Sequences is an 8 month program that teaches you about your balanced divine masculine energy. This program is for both men and women.
We live in a masculine world where we generally consider masculine qualities to be associated with ego, power, strength, and toughness, but that is not what masculinity is about. When the masculine energy is balanced and integrated, it has the incredible ability to create equanimity and space for others to feel safe to be themselves.
Balanced masculine energy is active, expansive, purposeful, protective and outward. In its wounded form tho we see dominance, aggression, misuse of power, and competitiveness. In many young boys it is easy to see the balanced masculine qualities, they are strong and active and extremely loving and tender at the same time. Through pressures of society many of us get lost and forget. We think that being strong, contained and emotionless is the only option we have. Terry Real mentioned in his book ‘Fierce Intimacy’, “Girls lose their voice growing up. Boys lose their heart.”
The balanced masculine is able to express compassion, empathy and deep feelings of love and care with ease. It presents itself within our discernment, displays in our courage, and thrives on structure, discipline, focus, and direction.
We all have masculine and feminine qualities, finding the balance is key to Wholeness. As women we need to develop our masculine powers and as men we need to keep this energy balanced and our heart connected.
The Shiva Sequences work with 7 Hindu god archetypes, each representing a different aspect of the masculine. You already have all these qualities within you, however with some you feel more connected than with others. You might feel judgements or fear towards the ones you have not recognised yet within yourself. Using these archetypes you can learn about your balanced masculine qualities, bringing contentment, compassion, courage and purpose into your life.
This program includes two monthly 3 hour sessions for each archetype and lifetime online access to the Yoga Practices of the Shiva Sequences which are designed to allow you to connect to your own Balanced Masculine energy. It includes: Over 35 Yoga practices - Vinyasa, Gentle and Yin -, Meditation and Breathwork sessions, Music playlists, Yoga philosophy, Poetry and Transformational information about the gods for you to explore, enjoy and integrate in your life.
Working with these practices might also be a wonderful way to include your partner in your practice. To open up to a shared understanding of the masculine and feminine energies within you both, creating personal wholeness. Working together on these Sequences might help you to find more balance in your relationship.
