Self Paced Online Goddess Journey

Discover and Honor Your Inner Goddess 

Master Spiritual Teacher, Acharya Shunya has been teaching and leading in-person Goddess Retreats for over a decade. It is Acharya Shunya's sincere belief that anybody and everybody can benefit from the goddesses.

In the Fall of 2021, during a global pandemic, she led a very special multi-day online Honor the Goddess Within immersion retreat. During this powerful retreat, Acharya Shunya, supported by assistant teacher Aparna Amy Lewis, led multiple daily classes and community circles. Over the course of 9 days and 9 nights, an international community of seekers from 6 continents connected to their Inner Goddess. 

Through sacred storytelling, somatic process work, exploring psychological archetypes and goddess symbolism, ancient yogic practices, meditations, chanting, and community gatherings, people from all walks of life found the source of their own inner divine feminine power. 

Since this retreat, participants have continued to deepen their connection with these teachings - rewatching again and again, integrating these practices into their everyday lives. 

We have now released the recordings of this historic retreat as the Honor the Goddess Within with Acharya Shunya Online Course.  We invite you to experience this very special journey to your inner Goddess.

Meet the Goddess

The Vedas tell us how to connect with the Goddess within. SHE is known as Shakti. Shakti can be described as Power, Force and Feminine Energy. She is the life force of everything and everyone. In this course, we contemplate upon and connect with 9 forms or avatars of Shakti.

When Goddess Shakti is recalled in the mind, hidden spiritual vibrations become activated in our body-being.  The Goddess nurtures and protects, and when we focus on Her, we unlock our own divine potential. This will inspire our inner strength to rise against all challenges, unearth buried creativity, and unleash emotional resilience.

Awaken Your Power

Acharya Shunya's Goddess teachings touch the heart of all beings yearning for spiritual wholeness. If you are tired of engaging in the same patterns in your life and you are ready to make internal shifts, and allow more divine love, spiritual abundance and happiness into your heart, this transformative course is for you.  

Over the course of 9 Modules, you will mindfully connect to your highest Self, who is one with the Goddess.  Each module features over 3 hours of teachings and practices to invoke, explain, and experience each avatar of the goddess. Each goddess is invoked with traditional stories (called Katha) and her sacred archetype and symbolism revealed by Acharya Shunya.  You will learn about each of these goddess archetypes and their significance for your own psychological wellbeing with Assistant Teacher Aparna Amy Lewis.  

To have a lived experience of these goddesses, you will learn subtle yogic knowledge of chakras, elemental theory, mantra, mudra and asana, and breathwork practices called pranayama.  The Shakti Soma Goddess Retreat Guidebook by Acharya Shunya, as well as guided meditations, somatic experiences, ayurvedic recipes, contemplation and journal prompts, and Q&A’s from other seekers like you, further evoke the Goddess Within.

With lifetime access to digital recordings, you can return to these goddess teachings again and again, to shine more and more from within.
