THE DOORS ARE OPEN: September 22-26, 2019
You’re invited to join a sacred, monthly Shakti Temple to celebrate and radiate your feminine essence while connecting with a powerful sisterhood.
There is a global awakening of Shakti energy
There is a global awakening of Shakti energy on the planet, in every human, and in every woman. It is prophecy.
It is the remembrance of our innate life force, our divine connection to Gaia … and to every other womb on Earth.
It is the undeniable, creative, sexual life force that fuels our dreams, desires, and connection to our sovereign power.
It is an energy to be honoured, listened to, and fiercely respected.
…And it has to start with us.
each of us is awakening to our innate, feminine power
When we gather, as women—in community, creating a true sisterhood—this awakening is amplified because we remember ourselves in one another. We mirror another, witness another, and love another as we truly are: whole, divine, powerful.
As our awakening, remembering, and healing amplifies, in sisterhood, we help the planet, and all its beings, heal.
Enter the Shakti Temple
a safe space to remember your divine femininity, explore your power, and reclaim your magic
Registration Closes in:
This powerful temple is an online subscription community devoted to sisterhood, Shakti and the feminine.
We take a monthly vow of self-care, devotion and honouring out sacred ways, and to our sisters.
The temple is a holy container that supports you to feel empowered so you can shed old, limiting masculine expectations, beliefs, and patterns in your life, and finally let yourself be guided by your inner feminine wisdom.
It is time to trust that wisdom within you.
Every month, we focus our energy on a specific goddess archetype as a theme to anchor our practices.
While honoring diverse archetypes from across the globe, we’ll connect to their cultural roots and also feel their universal qualities so we can integrate and embody their gifts in our daily lives, becoming more connected to our fearless, vibrant Essence.
We will do this together through:
Live Moon Ceremonies with Q&A support from Carla
Rituals & practices to embody the goddess of the month
Astrological calendars to track important cosmic events
Quarterly bonus guest teacher interviews.
You’ll easily be able to recreate these rituals, and be empowered to create your unique imprint on what you have learned – so over time your ceremonies become exclusively your creation.
The goddess archetype we focus on each month will be our starting point for all the ceremonies, rituals, guided practices, and inquiries.
The monthly ceremonies celebrate important passages of life.
You’ll learn the following types of ceremonies:
Lunar & Seasonal Ceremonies
Goddess & Archetype Ceremonies
Life Stage & Celebration Ceremonies
and many others!
Over time, you’ll end up with access to an epic library of resources you can turn to as inspiration and guidance in all areas of your life.
Each expression of the feminine will be our starting point every month for ceremony, ritual, guided practices and inquiry. Over time you will have access to an epic library of resources you can turn to as inspiration and guidance in all areas of your life.
Some of the Goddesses & Archetypes that are already waiting for you in the Temple:
Saraswati – Indian Goddess of Knowledge
Lilith – Hebrew Goddess of Power & Sovereignty
Pachamama – Peruvian Earth Goddess
Isis – Egyptian Goddess of Magic & Motherhood
Uzume – Shinto Goddess of Laughter & Shadow
Airmid – Irish Goddess of Herbs and Plants
Oshun – Nigerian River Goddess of Fertility and Healing
The Sanskrit word, Shakti, means force or energy and refers to the primordial, active, dynamic feminine energy of creation.
Wild and often waiting to be liberated, she is the pleasure and passion that creates the fabric of reality.
In India, Shakti is honoured as the mother goddess and the universal source of energy, power, and creativity.
During this free, 13 day journey, we will celebrate Shakti—both within and without—her many parallels in other cultures, and her capacity to unify global archetypes, legends, and teachings.
Are you ready to honour your Inner Shakti, ask for what you need, and receive your birthright?
IN THE SHAKTI TEMPLE, YOU’LL EXPERIENCE:
A safe, loving, nonjudgmental community that allows you to show up exactly as you are
Remembering you are already whole and fully embodied

All sexual orientations are welcome and celebrated.
We honour the LGBTQX & BIPOC community.
Sister, if you feel called to create space in your life for YOU, releasing the bonds of overwhelm and over-busyness, this temple will be a beautiful place to ground a sacred vow toward that by tapping into your natural powers of creativity and manifestation.
This temple is truly a place where we gather, in sisterhood, to share our stories, ideas, and visions of how we want to show up fully in the world as fully embodied women.

TUNE IN WITH YOUR HEART & INQUIRE WITHIN:
- Where are you deferring to your masculine while sacrificing your feminine?
- Do you find yourself feeling strained, stressed, rushed, and ‘hustled’ out?
- Do you feel imbalanced and desperately desiring to feel more connection with your body, your ancestral wisdom, and your sensual, feminine magic?
- Are you fiercely desiring more S P A C I O U S N E S S to be, feel, express, dance, create, and embody more pleasure, bliss, and peace?
The world needs women who are awake to their wisdom,
power, beauty, and sacredness.
Will you join us?
“The practice of focusing on Shakti and the Divine Feminine means that we are starting to remember. The world is changing and with the additional roles that women have now taken on, if we don’t focus on our physical and spiritual and emotional selves, then we will lose all of those pieces and our ability to balance all of those pieces.
Being able to bring together people from different cultures and backgrounds means that we can share world views. It is very significant to be able to share these teachings as far and wide as possible. It is very important to provide different ways of seeing and believing so that others can express themselves in a way that empowers them to be the best that they can be.
Carla, I think you are doing such an amazing job of bringing this knowledge forward and I feel grateful that we have you as a resource in our community.”
You are love, divine, sacred.
You are worthy of what you desire.
You hold the life force of explosions,
the creatrix of all—within.
It is me—my gift to you.
I circulate up your spine
in your blood
in your holy of holies,
for you are that.
Your voice, your magic, your wisdom.
Are you willing to revere your Shakti life force energy with the support and witnessing of other women?

What Sisters Say About the Temple
As a founding sister of the Embracing Shakti Temple, I value the community of women. I am a bit of a tomboy and for most of my life have surrounded myself with a lot of masculine energies, as I find myself most comfortable there. This opportunity, however, let me grow myself, be all of the woman I can be, all while exploring my feminine side. Connecting with other women in the group has helped me achieve that.
Carla and the Embracing Shakti Temple offer an abundance of connection, inspiration, support and love. I have found the whole experience very valuable. The personal and financial investment in the Embracing Shakti Temple is worth every cent.
The thing about Carla is she is inspiring, and intuitive. I have had her post things that relate to me very closely at times, and I wonder how she knew I needed that right then, and I am Grateful.
Prior to joining the Temple, I had little whipsterings about the idea of embracing our Divine Feminine. I wasn’t sure what that would look like in my day to day life. But when I joined the Temple it has been of the best experiences of my life. It has been such a journey to getting to know parts of myself that I didn’t know I wasn’t embodying. Areas of my body that I had been cut off from.
Now I feel held in reverence. I have learned to revere all of my body, all its parts. I am now doing things in my life that I wouldn’t have done a year ago before this experience. Carla is so nurturing and so welcoming. This is such a safe container.
Investing in your well-being, self-care, and state of being is the best investment you can make. Prioritizing your healing and grown is a powerfully simple way of saying yes to your desires!
My Personal Guarantee
By joining the safe and supportive container of the Embracing Shakti Temple, you will reclaim your sovereignty as a fully embodied woman who can access her sacred sexuality to move in the world from a place of wisdom, strength, spaciousness, wholeness, connection, creativity, turn on and passion for life. If you are not satisfied with your choice, you can cancel your monthly membership at any time.
I am Carla – Creatrix.
A Creatrix is defined as a female who produces, creates, and brings forth. It is a word that has been used since at least the 1600’s.
To go deeper into the feeling of a Creatrix, you would find a woman who is deeply connected to her feminine source, her generative power, her capacity to create—desires, ideas and life of all kinds. She connects to both her shadow and her light. She helps midwife the awakening, embodiment and transformation of all beings.
When I first heard the word “Creatrix” many, many moons ago, I had an immediate experience in my body—a rush of energy, the spark of excitement, a deep resonance within my bones.
At the time, I thought, “This word is incredible; I’ll keep it in my back pocket for when the time is right.”
And that time is now.
For me, Creatrix expresses the fullness of who I am and what to do. I am “She that creates” in manifest forms. A word that feels at once enchanting, mystical, powerful, slightly mischievous and with a tiny whisper of darkness. Perfect.
But it wasn’t an overnight awakening that brought me into this mindstate; in fact, it has been a lifelong journey.
I am Canadian with settler ancestry. I am a descendant of English and Scottish Protestants and German Jews.
I am honoured to live on the unceded traditional territory of the L’heidli Tenneh First Nation in Prince George, British Columbia.
My childhood was characterized by the understanding that I was highly sensitive and not only felt my emotions, but also felt the emotions of others. Into my teens and early adulthood, I learned to trade in my natural inclinations for the acceptance of others, dismissing my emotions for logic.
In my early 20’s, I was knocked back by two sexual assaults that turned my world upside down.
Depression became my constant companion.
I had a nervous breakdown. I couldn’t get out of bed. My capacity for pleasure was lost and I looked for ways to numb my pain and sadness.
At the quarter century mark, I tried my first yoga class and a light inside me was sparked.
I learned to breathe for the first time. My body tentatively invited me to witness parts of her inner landscape. I began to experience self-compassion.
Now, more than 20 years later, I am more embodied than I have ever been.
I am a mother, a sister, and a life partner. I work in service of women and the Divine Feminine. I assist others feel more ease, grace, nourishment, turn-on and celebrate all parts of herself.
I know, deep in my bones, that I am always learning and evolving—as is everyone who I meet on my path.
I am grateful to be guided by Source on this journey and have so much appreciation and reverence for YOU. You who is curious, searching, and ready to open into the mysteries of love and life.
This safe container is being created for your transformation. It is a homecoming—to yourself, your emotions, gifts, body, and soul … along with others on a similar path of self-acceptance, radical self-love, and a return to our innate womb wisdom and intuitive capacities.
Shakti is calling us home, and we’re here to roar!
love & pranams,

Embracing Shakti Temple Supports
Guria India, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to fighting child prostitution, second generation prostitution, trafficking of women and children for forced labour or sex primarily in Northern India.
Moon Time Sisters, a volunteer-led charity that collects and sends menstrual products to women and girls in Northern Canadian communities, most of them indigenous, who don’t have access to supplies because of their remote locations and the prohibitive cost of getting them there. Many of these young women are missing school and work because of their periods, which means that so much potential is unfulfilled, just because of periods.
Native Women’s Association of Canada – was founded on the collective goal to enhance, promote, and foster the social, economic, cultural and political well-being of First Nations, Métis and Inuit women, girls and gender-diverse people within First Nations, Métis and Inuit Canadian societies.
A portion of each Embracing Shakti Temple Membership is donated to these charities doing such important work in our world.
“Connecting to Shakti is where the growing happens towards a spiritual life of peace and knowing within us. They are universal teachings no matter where they are from. It is a common language. And what we bring to each other becomes a beautiful blend. We bring different aspects to each other and it helps to paint a complete picture.”
Kapila Chugh – Yoga Teacher & Yoga Teacher Trainer
I already have a full life and busy schedule? How will being a member support me and not create more burden or responsibility to show up to another ‘thing’
This is a way to show up for you and not another ‘thing’. In my work with women over the years through, I’ve found that showing up for yourself in community with other women creates the spaciousness in your life for more ‘you’ time, to feel your body, feel and experience your emotions, find comfort and support, and begin releasing the responsibilities that are not aligned with your being and attune to what is in your highest good. Oftentimes we can commit to things in our lives that don’t add value but drain us, and as women in the Embracing Shakti Movement reported, even devoting 10 minutes a day to their personal practice was vastly transformational to their well-being.
Who is this temple for?
We welcome and celebrate women of all ages and identifications (lesbian, bisexual, queer and pansexual women and any other sexual identities and choices) and anyone who identifies as a woman at the Embracing Shakti Temple!
Please note that this course does use gendered language.
How much time should I practice each day?
The content in the temple is here for you to use as you feel called. We suggest practicing a at least once a week or more if you feel called. More practice = more aliveness!
What if I've had a hysterectomy, can I still do the practices?
Physical organs are not needed for any of these practices – your energetic womb is still intact!
I’m new to embracing my spiritual side and I am not quite sure I am ready to express these practices to others. Will I be guaranteed my privacy?
Absolutely, we don’t not give your information to other companies, nor do we post content containing members images or comments outside of our circle unless we get your permission.
When is new content available?
New temple content is available every month, including Goddess/Archetype of the Month Handout, Monthly Ceremony/Practice with Carla, Astrological Calendar and Monthly Tarot Reading with Leah. New content will be made available on the 1st of every month. There is also a live monthly Q&A scheduled with Carla that will be listed on the membership calendar. It will be recorded if you can’t make it live.
You will receive email reminders when new content is posted in our membership site.
When does billing happen?
Your first payment for the Embracing Shakti Temple is processed on the day of enrollment, and payments are billed every 30 days thereafter.
How do I cancel my membership?
Although we would be sad to see you go, you can cancel your membership anytime by reaching out to our customer service team at [email protected]
Can I get a refund?
You can cancel your membership at any time, and you will not be billed again. However, a cancellation does not refund the previous month’s charges as your membership content has already been delivered to you.
Please note: once you’ve cancelled your membership, you will no longer have access to the membership portal and you will be removed from the Facebook Community group.
Carla, why do you sometimes use the word womxn?
The word ‘woman’ comes from the phrase ‘of man’. X allows space for individuals who identify as genderfluid, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, or non-binary. The “x” in womxn works the same way, and as such, opens up the free-human-woman concept to include trans women.
What’s your diversity and racism plan?
Our team is very devoted to doing the work of dismantling prejudice, white privilege, and ingrained racism. We’ve been in the process of taking courses led by thought and action leaders such as Layla F. Saad, Sara Alvarado, the Adaway Group and the Canadian Race Relations Foundation.
It is our intention this platform and space welcome diversity in all its forms.
