Dear Beautiful Soul,

409 E. Unaka

You found us! Shakti in the Mountains – the place where your creative energy and authentic self are nurtured and celebrated.

Here we offer respite from the fast-paced world. We all desire acceptance, love and understanding. You can find that here at Shakti in the Mountains. We provide a space for you to explore what is meaningful to you. We recognize the different ways people like to explore, so we offer a variety of classes, workshops and programs.

We offer activities that will grow and nurture you. We provide tools to increase joy and vitality in your life. You can find inspiration and connection in our vibrant Shakti community.

Our intention at Shakti in the Mountains is to foster healthy community. We want the women and men who visit us to know they are home. If you are ready to let go of old hurts and limiting beliefs, if you are ready to open your heart, if you are ready to write your own story, then you are ready to be a part of our loving and growing Shakti community.

We are a tribe of imperfect people who are creating a community where being real is encouraged, where having fun is expected and where love flourishes. Check out our events, pick one and then come visit us – we are waiting for you.
