Welcome to Shakti Shiva Academy's

Online Community and School

hosted on Mighty Networks

For years our students and clients have told us they wanted a space to dig deeper into the topics we cover in our programs: conscious relationships, sexual awakening, emotional intelligence, and blending these realms with a spiritual path in this modern world.

Our students love our courses but what happens after the 7 weeks or 3 months or 9 months are over? How do you engage with the course material or your community if you’re not in a course? How do you connect with like-minded people and make new friendships and collaborations?
We’re committed to creating a space where we can support each other and continue our collective transformation insider or outside the classroom.

Cultivate a more loving relationship to your body, yourself, and your sexuality - starting now.


In an increasingly volatile, divided world it’s more important than ever to be the most self-aware, self-loving, embodied versions of ourselves.

When we can be who we truly are - and connect with others who are on the same journey - we’re better able to show up in the world and affect real change.

We have the strength to advocate for ourselves and the things that are important to us. We’re empowered to make our voices heard. We’re no longer distracted or weighed down by past experiences. 

Digging deep into this important work will make you more empowered, more connected, and more supported than you thought possible. No longer burdened by old patterns, conditioning, traumas, or compulsions, you’ll be far more present for the life you’re actually living.




Feel supported, present, and awakened to who you truly are


Do you seek to dig deeper into your studies of conscious relationships, sexual awakening, and erotic wisdom - but you’re busy and overwhelmed and not sure you have time?

We invite you to carve out some time - no matter how small - every week. You and your inner needs are important - more important than running one more errand or sending one more email.

Circle of Fire is a gift you give yourself and we’ve designed this community to meet you exactly where you are. Log in when you have time, come back to the content and the conversations at your leisure.

Not sure the tools and methods we teach will work for you, your body, or your relationships?

Our work is backed by decades of study and has been implemented and iterated by thousands of students worldwide.

That being said, our goal is to provide you with a toolbox you can use, experiment with, and make your own. We’ve worked hard to format our lessons to support different learning styles; you can learn through live, interactive workshops, self-paced courses, audio + video downloads, worksheets, or through discussion and conversation.

Concerned about sharing the inner workings of your intimate life and relationships with strangers on the internet? 

We’ve found that it’s often easier to have these conversations with “strangers on the internet” - rather than your sister or friend. Our work tends to attract exceptionally open-minded humans, so any community we create will be an amazingly supportive space to share your story.

We also took privacy into consideration when we opted to host our community on Mighty Networks. It is much more secure than Facebook, Slack, or Google Meet.

Feeling leary about navigating another tech platform? 

Mighty Networks is quite user friendly! And as soon as you sign up, you’ll receive an email with everything you need to know to get started - how-to videos, instructions, important considerations, and suggestions.

We’re here to hold your hand until you’re able to fly!


A community for people who know there is more to sexuality than the conventional programming and conditioning we receive. In this community, we are dedicated to exploring that more. 


We peek behind the curtain and not only live from, but embody, what we find.


Circle of Fire is for people who want to…

  • meet other amazing humans who are on the journey of awakening to their sexuality
  • share experiences without fear of judgment
  • embody these practices, not just conceptualize them 
  • broaden their perspectives on what’s possible in their living + loving
  • access incredible teachers + expert


It’s time to find people who understand you + support your journey


The education you’ll receive from the Shakti Shiva Academy and within the Circle of Fire community is incredibly unique, rich, and innovative. We’ll help you go deep into your learning journey, moving beyond conceptual learning to integration and embodiment.

You can learn + connect in whatever way works best for you:
  • expand your education through our workshops and classes

  • find community with like-minded people + have meaningful conversations

  • connect with experts and teachers and access as much support and care as you need

Circle of Fire is founded in totality - no part of your human experience is left out. Your desires, your fantasies, your kinks, your anger, your uncomfortable feelings, your addictions and compulsions - all are welcomed with love.  


Your guides in this community experience


Claire Rumore

Claire grew up Catholic in the conservative southern region of the United States; sex education was abstinence-only and riddled with guilt and shame. Because of her own healing process, Claire is uniquely well-qualified to help students work through societal expectations and shame around sex. 

She’s a certified Erotic Blueprints coach, sex educator, somatic practitioner, and a long time student and mentee of the late Shakti Malan. 

Rhianne van der Linde

Rhianne’s introduction to this work began in 2007 when her life imploded with a layoff and a breakup. She saw a tiny advertisement in the back of a wellness publication: “Uncoiling The Snake: A women’s retreat with Shakti Malan,” and her life changed forever. 

Rhianne managed all of Shakti’s in-person workshops and retreats from 2010 until her death in 2017. She is trained in breath work, dreamwork, embodiment and somatic practices.
