‘Tantra trusts in your body.
Tantra trusts in your senses.
Tantra trusts in your energy.
Tantra trusts in you!
Tantra does not deny anything,
but transforms everything.’
My name is
I wish to share my love for tantra with you. Before really getting into tantra, I was practicing and teaching a lot of yoga. And although I still love yoga too, it never really felt like a ‘complete’ practice to me. When I decided to dive into the world of tantra, I understood what I had been missing.
Tantra doesn’t exclude any part of me, tantra includes all of me. Suddenly ALL of me was welcome. My anger, my sadness, my playfulness, my animal side, my fears, my joy, my busy mind, my sensuality, my sexuality – everything. Before I was fighting with a lot of these aspects of myself. Fighting with everything that isn’t me in my essence, fighting with my humanness. I thought that was the way to enlightenment.
I discovered the opposite is true. The key is not fighting – it is fully embracing and living all aspects of myself, but with awareness! Consciously.
[Remember: Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.]
By doing this, I started experiencing more freedom, more aliveness and more love -for myself, for others and for life- than ever. I started having experiences I didn’t even know were possible for a ‘simple human being’ like myself 😉
By consciously living all of me, I’ve gotten to the deepest spiritual experiences.
Our body and our whole being is hardwired for bliss! Trust me. Or even beter: find out for yourself!
Tantra consists of active meditations, silent meditations, expressing emotions, massages, dancing, raising our sexual energy (kundalini energy) and so on.
I am offering different sorts of tantric workshops and courses in Groningen. Later this year I will be offering weekend workshop in the Netherlands, with a male co-teacher. There’s lots of great stuff coming up, so stay tuned!
“Tantra is the natural way;
the loose and the natural is the goal. You need not fight with the current; simply move with it, float with it. The river is going to the sea, so why fight? Move with the river, become one with the river: surrender.”
A little look inside my life, inside my head, inside my heart.
YES! This message really kickstarted my spiritual journey. I read The Power of Now at age 24 and it has been a life changing moment. I remember the first day I started reading it. It was like waking up from a dream. As most people, I was almost always...
(a peek into my tantra life) Last Monday's 'Taste of Tantra' night was a big success. When I hear how touched people were, or how they felt the energy flowing, or that they felt liberated, or connected... I feel a deep joy in my heart <3 Because that's what I am doing...
*Good news & bad news* Okay let's start with the bad news. 'Every woman is wired differently. Some women's nerves branch more in the vagina; other women's nerves branch more in the clitoris. Some branch a great deal in the perineum, or at the mouth of the cervix. That accounts for...
‘Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. You share that purpose with every other person on the planet – because it is the purpose of humanity. Your inner purpose is an essential part of the purpose of the whole, the universe and its emerging intelligence. Your outer purpose can change over time. It varies greatly from person to person. Finding and living in alignment with the inner purpose is the foundation for fulfilling your outer purpose.
It is the basis for true success.’

I participated in the Chakra Journey course and I can recommend it to you wholeheartedly if you are ready for a new step in your life. Shivani has a nice and gentle way of guiding and with her enthusiasm she invites you to go beyond your own limits and to be curious about what is possible in connection with yourself and others. Every workshop is different and she uses beautiful exercises. For me, many things started happening and it opened doors that had been closed for a while. So if you are curious about tantra but mainly about yourself then this is a great course!
A whole new world is opening up to me. I’ve always suspected there was more in life and now, with you, I’m in the right place to access it. I really like the clear structure that you offer. Clear, “simple”, structured. That gives me a safe feeling, which makes it easy to surrender. It’s very nice that you also share music and give texts / homework. This allows for the process to continue. And no vague or woolly stuff, but all very down-to-earth. I think you are calm, funny, reliable, clear and groundbreaking
Shivani is sincere and honest in the way she teaches her workshops. A beautiful, soft and energetic presence. She has a lot of knowledge in the field of Tantra and spirituality. And during the wonderful, loving massage she gave me I was able to completely relax and experience stillness.
