"Love tells me I am everything; wisdom tells me I am nothing; In between the two, my life flows."


Power, Creativity, & Oneness, or The “Shakti” Principle:

In Indian mythology and the yogic sciences, “Shakti” is a goddess and consort of “Shiva,” but she also represents the knowledge of interconnectedness and inner strength rooted in “feminine” sensibilities of receptivity, cooperation, and the wisdom of impermanence. Shakti is primordial energy and she dances with Shiva, who represents consciousness, to give rise to the play of opposites. As a role model, She helps us transition from an association of power with submission/dominance dynamics to sacred activism and mutual empowerment and empathy.

Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Meditation on “Shakti” or the divine feminine can be the link to renewing our sense of life as miraculous. The creative life, when fully lived, becomes meditation, and meditation, when experienced deeply, centers us in the joy, movement, and vitality that are our art and birth right.

Oneness is both the root of who we are and the soul of our becoming. By attuning to oneness, we align our professional endeavors, spiritual quests, relationships, and struggles with our innate resourcefulness and intuition.


Sofiya serves as a true reminder of the depths within us all. She provides a space for the Spiritual Conversation in any way that it might show up in the moment, and pushes those who come into contact with her to open their eyes and hearts, to engage in new perspectives, and to value the human experience from a place of curiosity. I recognize her as a true teacher of the written word and the spiritual journey, a teacher who is always learning, engaging, and growing from and with all aspects of Life.
