Shanti Lotus Healing Services
It is so wonderful that you are visiting and I am excited about getting to know you better.
I am passionate about working with professional women like you who are seeking your higher calling to transform your work – family turmoil and manifest enlightened possibilities to live your true essence, joy, full expression and radiance of your inner feminine goddess.
I believe that …
- When women accept and embrace their true identity as feminine goddesses we can be the example of peace and joy for our family, community and world
- You have everything within to live with peace and joy
- You can co-create the life you desire
- You are a miracle on a mystical journey of life
- Letting life “happen” is not an option
- You can be your best at home, work and leisure
- Your best life imaginable is waiting for you to claim it
- You are a powerful goddess, the essence, joy, full expression and radiance of the divine brilliance!
I have been where you are …
I understand where you are for I too have struggled with disempowerment, insecurities, fears, anger and loss of identity. I had to dig deep for courage, discipline, humility and faith, to seek assistance from my coaches and spiritual masters so I can explore, accept and embrace all the different parts of who I am. Ultimately I was able to transform these identity challenges and crises into opportunities to learn and grow; and, experience ecstatic states with the joy and freedom of living in and accepting the moment as it is. From my own deep transformations and trust in the divine, came the ability to guide strong women who want to move through their sadness, anger, insecurities and fears to balance their daily life at home, work and leisure with their divinity to discover their true self and explore their full potential. With the grace of my spiritual master, I developed a system to empower women to awaken their inner feminine goddess to be their best in all of their various relationships with self, others and the environment.
I am honoured and humbled to journey with you on this wondrous awakening of your divine warrior goddess …
With Chakradance™, coaching, focusing, yoga, meditation, assessments, introspection, and skill building you will co-create a better life for yourself and a better self for your life! Together we will access the wisdom of your mind, body and spirit to discover your true identity – that inner goddess and miracle that you are. We will give ‘attention’ to your ‘intentions’ for an enlightened life of ‘appreciation’ of your ‘manifestations’.
I work privately with women in person and / or by phone or Skype to guide you to discover your true essence and identity so you can transform your inner turmoil and work-family confusion to enlightened possibilities and co-create the life you desire. With active compassion, wisdom, intuition, integrity, love, respect, honour, humour and enthusiasm, I will guide you to dig deep to access, embrace, accept and love all that you are.

BE the Peace in the Chaos
Peace is determined, not by external events, but by our internal attitude. The violence we see in the world is a reflection of the confusion and violence inside each one of us. When we are at Peace within; we can create peace in our world.
H H Param Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji Maharaj
With so much violence in the world, achieving peace can seem impossible. Each of us has the choice to live in peace or in pieces. When we understand that peace is determined by our internal attitude, we can co-create peace in our little piece of the world with every choice we make in each moment.

Dance of Shakti: 7 days
Do you want to go beyond your trauma and conditioning to discover your authentic self? Sometimes we need a map or a practice to guide us to a life filled with ecstasy, vibrancy, radiance, joy, love, bliss and freedom. The Chakra System of the body is the map! Dance of Shakti, a fusion of Chakradance™ and Shakti Vidya are the practices to heal and discover your true self.
Chakradance™ is a playful, spirited, free flowing dance modality that helps us to balance our chakras for greater well being, happiness, freedom, peace and joy. This moving therapeutic dance modality guides us back to the wholeness of who we truly are. Chakradance™, a fusion of Jungian philosophy, chakra resonant music, dance, guided visualization and mandala art, gives us the opportunity to tap into our unconscious for healing and clarity, reconnect with the wisdom of our bodies and expands our minds.
Shakti Vidya includes yoga, prana, kriya, mudra and mantra. We will use yoga, prana and kriya to prepare the body to receive the power of the mantras – the sounds that evoke a set of vibrations in the cosmos.
Dance of Shakti balances the energy of the padmas / chakras to awaken our divine shakti – that inner potential energy, relax our nervous system, enhance our immune system and heal our bodies as we release trauma and fears. We elevate and enlighten our consciousness to allow the power and grace of the divine Shakti to flow through us.
By the end of this Retreat, you will have a practice for your continued transformational journey to discovering and embracing the essence of who you are in each moment.
Love and Appreciation
My experience with Tara was life changing. Our sessions one on one still sit vividly with me today.
In her sessions, Tara creates a clear and nurturing space in which the body and thinking mind are able to both quickly and radically relax. Once this happens, the subconscious and spiritual bodies are able to express themselves. Tara guided me through two visualization meditations and both times piquant and vivid imagery of my experience of myself and my fears came pouring out unabashedly. Tara continues to guide the visualizations until all details are released. My mind felt empty and I could finally see my fears as separate entities from myself. It was the first time I was able to experience and digest that I am not my thoughts and I am not my fears. This freedom has led me to continue to explore this path of hearing the call of my subconscious and my spirit and thus act in support of them rather than suppressing them.
These sessions, these moments in time, I believe were the catalysts for what now has become a dedicated spiritual journey.
Sarra Kaufman, USA, 2013
I started my personal sessions with Tara in February 2022. I realized that I needed help to get through a dark period of my life. I was going nowhere except in circles. After my interview with Tara she set up sessions for me. She became my life line. Tara has guided me in the areas of loving myself, forgiving myself and others. Tara listens, hears, teaches and challenges you. She puts you in charge of healing yourself. The most wonderful thing she has done for me was how to open my heart. She also has given me a wonderful gift of tools to keep me going. Thank you for helping me grow and enjoy living again, Tara.

Dear Tara: I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying the Chakradance classes: it has been so profound to dance the chakras. I didn’t realize it would be so significant. I really appreciate the leadership that you provide while we travel within. I love the music, and the mandala art – all the pieces come together for a very full experience.
Stacie Gottfried, Winnipeg Dec 2016
Dear Tara, You are a wise spirit who skillfully guided me to trust and embrace the journey of opening up to the dance and the messages of my chakras. You facilitated a safe and nurturing environment which bonded the participants. I am so grateful for your gentle and wise presence, your skillful guidance, the power of the chakra dance and my sister souls with whom I have had the joy and pleasure to share this journey – which includes you. Namaste!
Zabeth Cornelius-Knudsen, Minneapolis, USA 2016
I had been looking for something for a long time that would help in my journey of reconnecting to my spirit as I had been feeling off balance. I was seeking guidance, wisdom and healing and as usual the direction came from Tara through an invitation to join her in Chakradance. Throughout the process of the dance I was surprised how my body responded to the music naturally; and, how my emotions bubbled up unexpectedly. My experience of Chakradance was a sacred moment that allowed me to simply focus on the messages that my mind, body and spirit had been trying to send me.
Cinzia Caputo, Winnipeg, 2015
“It has been a blessing and an inspiration to spend time with Tara. With her thoughtful guidance, I am able to discover my own answers, see my beliefs from a new perspective, realign them, set new goals and take time to appreciate my journey. Thank you Tara for helping me to live my life’s purpose”.
