Shakti Rising

Are you passionate about the transformative power of community? Do you want to work at the intersection of personal and systemic change? Does connecting people and weaving webs light you up?

Shakti Rising is a women-led, women centered social change organization cultivating the health, financial resilience and emergent leadership of women & girls. Our work empowers women & girls to utilize their transformation as a catalyst in their families, workplace and communities. This creates gradual cultural change that supports sustainable, cooperative, healthy societies.

Our framework for healing & social change includes the following interwoven principles:

  • women centered, holistic & trauma informed
  • sustainable
  • based in cultivation of creativity, leadership and community

Our work actively promotes community well being, creating woman & child friendly societies that are safe, healthy, vibrant, diverse, sustainable and culturally alive.

One way we do this is through providing grassroots education that blends ecology, psychology, myth & folklore, somatics, wisdom traditions and popular education. Shakti Feminine University (SFU) empowers women and girls to be socially conscious change-makers who lead social change through the lens of liberatory education. Our woman-centered, holistic, trauma-informed approach to teaching fosters ongoing learning, engaged communities of practice and peer-to-peer mentorship in and outside the classroom. We believe that life is our classroom and learning is a pathway to liberation.

We have internship opportunities in our Wisdom Communities, Learning Communities program.

Additional information: Living from one’s truest self is an essential part of freedom; both a personal and radical political act. Fair warning: this work will change your life, too. We are committed to providing meaningful engagement for our interns and volunteers in every aspect of Shakti, matching organizational needs with individual talents, passions and goals for growth; creating mutually beneficial relationships while engaging individuals in a lifetime of civic and philanthropic contribution.

We believe leadership is an alchemical journey wherein one’s own inner healing and service to the world join together. Our invitation for you is to join us.
