Life itself is a call towards the Self. Our daily life becomes the path towards liberation. Though manifestation is only an illusion, it is also an opportunity for awakening, an invitation to rediscover the Self at the center of our own humanity. In this sense, overcoming fear and illusion is to awaken to the extraordinary beauty of the moment, and to become a true embodiment of Consciousness itself in human form.

Life itself invites you to go through all those fears that seem to trap you into the human body and into the duration of a lifetime. From the conscious perception of the Immobility of your Being, these contractions, which are the same energy we call fear, are revealed as your own joy which is now free to radiate through form.

At the center of the egoic contraction there is only pure Emptiness, something that is mistakenly conceived as fragile and vulnerable. But it is actually Openness itself, only apparently covered by the illusion of being a someone.

From this direct perception, Life appears as an embodiment of the Absolute, and a precious opportunity to experience the Self consciously. As a Creator who experiences itself through its own creation.

Shakti shares a message of non-separation among living beings since 2003 with seminars, meetings, retreats and publications. Her approach, albeit in line with the ancient tradition of non-duality (Advaita, not-two), has a contemporary dimension. It invites everyone to live their daily life from the recognition of what we are, embodying this understanding, and radiating it out in our existence.

    Dear Shakti Caterina,

    I would very much like to join your retreat In Italy in August.

    I do hope you will have a place for me and am wondering how I may proceed from here.
