Thank you for joining us at Shakti Stories!


Shakti Stories is a mission to Empower Feminine Bliss for all people to flower and thrive. 

For centuries, womxn have been twisting and contorting themselves in various ways to fit into the norms & expectations of the world. 

Yet, we are now waking up to the ways that we’ve been limiting our self-expression or hiding aspects of our whole truth.

Expressing more of our essence is not just about wearing long dresses or dancing ecstatically in Bali. It’s about becoming aware of the true potential that we have in the body we reside in.

Today’s greatest threat to womxn’s freedom is what Marion Woodman called the “addiction to perfection”. This “never good enough” mentality means that no matter how much we do, it is never enough.

Inspired by the greats in the field of Feminine Psychology such as Marion Woodman and my teachers Dr. Ana Mozol, Dr. Leslie Ellis, Tammy Lynn Kent and Jalaja Bonheim, Phd and Toko-pa, I have created this podcast with the hopes of broadening our understanding of feminine psychology and growing together in our embodiment of purpose, passion and pleasure.

I invite you to always use your own intuitive felt-sense with any idea offered to you and run it through your own body to decide whether a certain practice or concept is of value for you at any given time. This podcast is in no way a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. 


Ep.16 What is Systemic Racism? Letting the feminine lead the way with Emmy Chahal

Emmy Chahal is an international yoga teacher, intuitive healer and workshop facilitator specializing in corporate wellness. I am so glad we can receive this woman's wisdom as I believe she is wise beyond her years!

In this Shakti Story, I ask Emmy Chahal to share with us some straight truth about systemic racism.

In this episode of Shakti Stories we are talking about:

~ what life was like for Emmy growing up as a person of colour in Canada - examples of systemic racism (2:40)

~ the version of history that we've been told that puts white men on a pedestal - the trauma for indigenous people of seeing the celebration as colonization (9:10)

~ what is taking action? what can people do that are wanting to be good allies? (18:15)

~ what we can learn from the horrors of our collective history in Canada and intergenerational trauma (22:30)

~ how we may "other" people in our attractions and Emmy's personal experience of feeling exotified by pervasive stereotypes (26)

~ how being raised in a system of patriarchy where the feminine is not valued intertwines with stereotypes about culture and race (29)
