Women's Tantra Workshop - The Way of the Heart

The heart radiates harmony, love and compassion, allowing divine love to flow freely from the centre of each woman, honouring the wisdom of each heart, knowing its divine perfection and in this grace the heart is all-powerful Cathy Wood

Are you always giving and nourishing outwardly to everything and everyone around you sometimes forgetting the most important person to be nourished first is yourself ?

Did you know that in Hindu Tantra women learn to embody and awaken their “Shakti” meaning “Goddess”? 

This goddess aspect is not based on ego, it is not about aspiring to be a beauty queen, or a model, nor is it based on feminine ego.  Shakti is the inner beauty and nurturance that radiates from a woman’s heart.

When the feminine heart radiates harmony, love and compassion allowing divine unconditional love to flow freely from the centre point of each woman, honouring the wisdom of her heart, knowing it’s divine perfection – and in this grace her heart is all powerful and feminine.

Yoga Tantra is one of the world's oldest holistic practices, a journey into "know thyself" SELF-REALISATION and the Path of Purification known as "Santi" to achieve inner spiritual peace.

This heartfelt Feminine Workshop will focus on sacred practices and meditations to nourish your femininity, embody wisdom, shine unconditional love and live your life as a fully consciously empowered woman.

If your curious and ready to be awakened, if you are called to be challenged in a good way and if you are ready to look deeper into your soul than ever before then we warmly invite you to join us for this phenomenal journey together.

The Way of the Heart will help you embody the highest form of all feminine energy known as unconditional love. This energy often referred to in Hindu Tantra as Shakti is the aspect of light which is nourishment, nurturance and love in all its purest form. When this energy is flowing as an open conduit we step onto the path of self-love and the awakening of self-realisation.

Hi Cathy,

I would just like to say a really huge ginormous thank you from the bottom of our hearts, on behalf of myself and Kate for Saturday. 

What a wonderful day of learning and sharing and growing. I will definitely continue to live my life based on the values of Tantra. So again, thank you so much for your time, for your knowledge and for sharing your experiences.

Bonnie and Kate 


Hi Cathy, 

How are you? I have been meaning to email you since the workshop! 

I have been utilising your CD a few times a week – I love it! Especially the Womb Healing and Grounding Meditations. I have also introduced the breast massage and I feel that I really crave it if I miss it every night – if I miss a few nights I can feel the disconnection with my body. 

So huge thanks to you. You are such a blessing and so inspirational, I feel so grateful to have met you. 

With love and light,
